Yesterday, on my Tailor / Enchanter, I looted 14k from the mailbox and spent 12k restocking the AH. The same is typically true for most professions, I would guess. The trick is to keep at it.

You hit the nail on the head- the best profession is the one you work at. You can make a killing off fishing-cooking just as easily as any profession as long as you put a little time into it. JC does have one advantage over most professions. The JC dailiy awards 1 token every day. With that token you can buy a chimera's eye gem, in which only a JC can buy. I have made a decent amount of gold in the last week just trading my unused tokens into those gems and selling them. I would say if anyone wants to start a banking toon, or turn yur current main/alt into one, you can do no worse than having one gathering toon and one profession that you can break down mats into something else. Example: Inscription can mill herbs into inks, mining can smelt ore, JC can prospect ore, etc. And of course, if you have a decent set of eyes, and a little patience, you can surf the AH for deals to buy and repost. But once again, the most lucrative profession is the one you keep at.

Very well said. All professions have the ability to make money, but its only going to do so with some effort. Which, honestly is why I like tailoring. Most things I do help the effort, I pick up a lot of cloth doing dailies in tol barad or dungeon running with the guildies. I always have excess. If I'm running sethekk halls for the umpteeth time not getting a raven lord, the netherweave I loot gets bolted and held till I have enough to make a couple bags to sell. Guild achievement runs through Wrath raids, frostweave cloth sells real nice.It kind of annoys me when i hear people in vent or even see it guild chat people complaining about profession mats, either the price of them to buy or their personal lack of what they need and then saying they don't want to farm whatever it is. Effort is everything.
