Oh quit whining. I know people who respec 2 or 3 times a day. 1000 gold is like a weeks worth of respecs. The other night we had a guy respec 3 time in mid-raid. He went from heal to DPS (50g) to heal again (50g) and back to DPS at the end (50g). We had a few people that had to come and go and things like that. These guys will gladly spend it to be done with it once and for all. You people who are level 80 and complain about making gold... how do you ever raid? Are you getting consumables donated? And if you don't raid, you shouldn't need dual-specs anyway. If you are one who your guild constantly asks to respec, maybe they will split that with you since it's a one time cost. It's the same with people who "save-up" for months to get epic flying. You can farm that up in a few days. Don't tell me you can't because I did it. I was a LW/Skinner. I dropped skinning and picked up mining. Leveled that in a day. You can smelt most of it these days. Farmed for like 2-3 days and made the money I needed and dropped mining and releveled skinning. No biggie. I later dropped LW/Skinning again and went herb/alch, so I'm not afraid to relevel gatherings. It's a pain for the 2 days it takes, but it's worth it. Some people farm for it in a day. 5000 gold isn't a lot. And if you roll a DK, or anything else and whine about buying flying and epic flying at 70... DON'T. Simple. You buy the mount at 70 and park it anyway. You can't touch it again till 77. So... wait till you hit 77. Most people are hitting Northrend at 68 anyway now, and you can't fly anyway so save the money slower. No need to stress yourself out over it. Gosh, some of you guys whine so much. If you can't make 1000g in this game, you should just stick with one spec. I keep a few thousand gold. Not a ton. I know people with max gold allowable in game. I don't need all that. I have what I need, epic flying, cold weather, I make my own food and pots, etc... so I have what I need. I don't mind dropping several hundred on an orb of deception or a drake pet, or buying things for someone that needs it. What else are we going to do with it? You can't take it with you and you can't pay the bills with it, so... have fun. Just quit whining. It's too early in the morning. Besides, the price might go down before it goes live anyway.

Exactly. You can easily get gold, you just need to know how to restrain yourself from not spending it on various crap as soon as your gold pile allows.I remember buying Titansteel bars not long after the launch, when they cost 400g without flinching... and I still got my epic flyer on a rather fresh character, dinging 70 slightly before the Scourge invasion event. I entered Northrend with whooping 50g. I had no professions. It is really easy to get gold in Northrend, it's all about motivating yourself.

You going to spend several hours a day saving up the money for those of us with real life jobs? Not everyone's maxed out LW. Do you have any idea how hard it is to max that out just by skinning your own stuff? I tried to sell my services in trade and immediately three maxxed out lw took all the business. And yeah I could go pick up mining...the problem is I can only mine in azeroth proper because if I try to mine in northrend better be prepared to be beaten by every jerk out there on a giant dragon flying 3000 times faster than me. And if you can sell LW created items at a profit you are one seriously lucky person because that does NOT happen on my server.And blizzard wonders why gold sellers have a market.

Remember that when there aren't any healers or tanks because they judge the cost too much to help people.

Leatherworking is not hard to level. Spend one hour in any number of farming spots and you can have 3+ stacks of Heavy Borean at your disposal.I reached 430 just through the incidental skinning I did while leveling and in instances. Regarding mining, competition isn't as bad as you claim. On my dinky level 70 paladin I ran around Scholazar on my ground mount farming Saronite. Despite the fact that A) everything was 6+ levels higher B) this was peak hours and C) I didn't have a particularly efficient route I managed to get four or so stacks in a couple of hours. The only maddening thing was that I had to skip a number of Titanium nodes until I hit 450 mining.
