OK, I just started playing WoW again and I'm leveling my lock (main) and DK to 80.
What I wanted to find out is, does it still make sense to have a profession that makes stuff that you can use? For example, back in BC days every clothy had tailoring so he could make himself shadoweave set (or one of the other 2, I forgot the names). You had to specialize in that subsegment of tailoring, and the item was BoP (or bind on creation ).
Is that still the case in WotLK? Are there still EASY TO OBTAIN recipes, that you can only make for yourself at 80? As I don't do 25-mans, I'm a bit short on purplz [no] so if sticking with a particular profession can get me few more pieces, than I'm for it.
Also, is there a character level requirement for professions? I mean, can I level ie JC to 450, being a lvl 1 character, sitting in Org?
