If you read the Gold Capped column you'll know that crafting professions can give you way more gold than gathering ones if you put your mind to it...

Sure, if you want to spend as much time in the auction house and reading gold-making guides as it takes to do 25 dailies. There's nothing wrong with that if you have the free time and/or if that's what you enjoy, but personally I'd rather spend most of my WoW time doing quests and instances and stuff, and so professions that more or less pay for themselves are preferred.

I don't really need to read guides or anything for my jewelcrafting. I spend about 15 minutes a day reposting expired auctions, checking costs, and buying, cutting, and reposting raw gems in the profitable cuts that I'm out of stock in. (I could mine it, but I've found that i'd rather make a little less profit and buy the uncut rares than spend an hour mining eternium and getting almost all uncommons.) On busy raid nights, I'll check in 2-3 times through the evening and fix undercuts. I play on an rp server with perhaps a dozen raid guilds, and I still make between 500 and 3000 gold profit a day. On a pve server... well...

@Cyrus I have to ask, cos I have never understood it, why 25 dailys? And do you do them every day? How long does it take and how much gold do you make doing it?Never quite got why when there are so many other ways to make gold, and surely the same 25 dailys every day gets a bit tired after a while?

If you prefer to do 25 dailies a day, you certainly don't have time to farm with your gathering profession. Sure, you can pick a node here, a herb there while you do your dailies, but this doesn't justify having the profession if you don't farm.@AmandaYou are right to prefer buying your ores than farming them. It's what we call opportunity cost.
