Dec 24th 2010 12:06AM I'm cold, I need a new shirt!
Dec 24th 2010 12:05AM Very nice!
Dec 24th 2010 12:04AM Sweet!
Dec 24th 2010 12:03AM Argh, I might be too late... darn time zones!
Dec 24th 2010 12:01AM Whee!
Dec 23rd 2010 3:53PM I would say spend a night or two puttering around to get a feel for what's out there, and then go with what floats your boat the most. There's really no wrong choice, there.
Dec 23rd 2010 3:51PM I missed most of one very fascinating cutscene in WPL (judging by the dialogue, anyway) because the camera decided to stick a big piece of architecture between me and the action, and I couldn't move it.

I'm not sure what you consider 'limited materials', but during Wrath and off the top of my head I was compelled to keep in stock Frostweave (bolts and pieces), Infinite Dust, Imbued Frostweave bolts, Eternium Thread, Eternal Fire, Eternal Life, Eternal Shadow, Ebonweave Cloth, Spellweave Cloth, Primal Mooncloth and Iceweb Spider Silk. That's 12 slots minimum, assuming the dust will go in, and that I'm not hoarding more than a single stack of anything. Oh, and Netherweave cloth and bolts, because Netherweave Bags remained super popular throughout the expansion. And if you're on an RP server and want to take advantage of the sweet moneymaking opportunities Tailoring provides you'll also want to carry mageweave, wool, silk, two kinds of leather, four kinds of pearls, Spider's Silk, felcloth, mooncloth...
Some of it may come down to personal preference. You seem to think skinners need more space as a baseline; I also have a skinner/leatherworker who doesn't have near the space issues my tailor does (though to be fair, Trapper's Travelling Packs go a long way to helping that). I've seen other people say "I understand why Enchanting gets special bags, but Tailoring doesn't need them" -- well, my Tailor is also an Enchanter, and she rarely maxed out her Mysterious Bag, even as she had two Frostweave Bags ready to burst with cloth and notions. To each their own, perhaps.
Still, for me the profession bags aren't just useful for what I pick up when I'm wandering about the world; they enable me to keep the items on hand that let me make the right item at the right time. But ultimately (and I think for everyone) they're about convenience, and Tailors shouldn't be less deserving of convenience than any other craftsperson.
It's really fascinating the different ways people view the market. To me, "you can bolt up your cloth" is the same as "you can convert your copper to silver". Collectible (i.e., non-created) cloth is useless to a tailor UNLESS it's in a bolt -- and I already keep as much bolted as I possibly can. And space is still an issue, due to the number of bolts it is effective for me to want on-hand and the number of additional items I need to cart around.
There is a 24-slot gem bag; the one advantage the Bag of Jewels has is that you can organize your gems really cleanly by color and quality (six colors down, quality across)! But I'm with you; I also would like to see larger, and I'd like to see them hold other JC items (filigrees, settings, powders, etc).
Ah well. OFF TO POST ON THE FORUMS! :-D
Dec 20th 2010 3:43PM @chetti : Different styles, I guess. :-) I've got 60+ slots between bags and bank full of various cloths and bolts and... notions? Threads and spider-silks and pearls and whatnot! and that's AFTER I cleaned house for Cata. I like to stock up when it's cheap, and I need someplace to keep it all. My scribe's herb and inscription bags are almost always full as well.
I also ditched the quiver for my hunter, though, by the same reasoning you did.
