Lets' say MoP hits, and you have all professions at 525. What do you level first?

Gathering, either herbalism or mining.Alternatively, just play your main and level your professions as you go without worry. The first weeks of an expansion can be an exhausting mess, and the way not to burn out and quit after 6 weeks is to play the way you enjoy. Just follow emberdione's advice and you'll have both gold and gear quite quickly.There's also big money in valor point BoEs, so being fast to 90 and racking up a goodly amount of justice and valor is another way to making some serious money.Don't forget to bank as much combined JP/valor/honor as you can just before cutover, so you start with a nice cushion.

Not engineering.I'm just going to take a risk here and assume that once again, it'll be the least effective profession for most of the expansion, and have one special item every tank wants for all of one tier, and never get an update.Otherwise - gathering has always been the go-to choice.

Safe option? Gathering to sell the mats even if you are LW/Skinner and you are selling your leather. I know it seems odd to be selling what you need to level up your chosen skill but give it a couple weeks and you can buy back that leather you should for half what you sold it for.Aggressive? I'd say enchanting or jewel crafting because you'll be able to make the most stuff that everyone will want but mat prices will be high and the market will crash pretty quickly as more people get their skills up but the first couple people to max em out can make money selling stuff no one else can. I'd also look at the recipes once they are available and start figuring out which tradeskills are going to have the things in highest demand that aren't going to be part of the quick/cheap/best route to max skill. If your expecting to make a lot of money selling bags as a tailor you'll be sorely disappointed if everyone is making them to skill up and selling them at little to no profit.
