Breakfast Topic: Take this job and shove it

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the Aol guest writer program that brings your words to WoW.com.

Let's face it, not everyone likes their job. (I can get away with saying that because I don't work for this blog.) And what's true in real life is sometimes true in World of Warcraft, as well.

There are plenty of reasons why someone might want to drop one of his or her two primary WoW professions for another. (There might be a reason for dropping a secondary profession, but I can't think of one.) Maybe you were just new to the game and didn't grasp right away that skinning and leatherworking might not be the ideal profession choices for a warrior. Maybe you've just given up hope that a certain profession ever will live up to its potential (*coughengineeringcough*). Or perhaps you got caught up in the min-max-mania that Blizzard is currently trying to eradicate from professions. (At one point in The Burning Crusade, for example, mages with raiding aspirations were very seriously handicapped if they were not Spellfire tailors).

Or perhaps you're like me, and the thought of throwing away 450 points of effort in leveling a profession and starting from zero in something new is just too much to bear, unless the circumstances are truly dire.

What's your take on this? Are professions in WoW something to be loyal to, or something to change as often as your car's oil? What causes you to reconsider your career options?
Have you ever wanted to write for WoW.com? Your chance may be right around the corner. Watch for our next call for submissions for articles via Seed, the Aol guest writer program that brings your words to WoW.com. The next byline you see here may be yours!
