@NaraxisThere's already some of that in WoW, though. Blacksmiths can make extra sockets, tailors can embroider their cloaks, engineers can tinker with belts and helms, etc. Everyone can reforge their gear.The issue that WoW has to contend with is balance. Because players are limited to 2 primary professions, Blizzard has to ensure that these professions are somewhat balanced so that players are not forced to choose a particular profession for their class. If you go too far the other way (say, let a blacksmith put sockets on another player's armor) then you actually detract from the profession: all of a sudden it's not important to BE a blacksmith, it's good enough to just know one.
