I think Blizzard has always done tradeskills terribly. They're not interactive enough. I think there's room for Blizzard to do a lot more than "Click this button, wait 8 seconds, and you have a tunic." Gathering skills, too. I can skin a deer and fail 3 times and then get good leather the 4th time. That deer should be MANGLED by then. But there should be a way to speed up gathering, or at least make it more interactive, too. I want to actually grab my skinning knife and slice up that deer part by part. It doesn't have to take long, maybe 8 or 9 seconds per skinning (zoom in on deer, slice slice slice, done), and it would be a lot more fun than right clicking.I'm not sure what other games do; the only other RPG I really got into was Arcanum, which, while the most awesome game ever made, did have some..... issues.

On the other hand, theres more than a few people who would be horrified at the thought of manually skinning a deer...I know wow isn't exactly without violence, but a close up of skinning a deer? Maybe not...
