By Shirley Huang2019-08-29

Professions were expensive and time-consuming in the original vanilla wow, however that didn’t stop players choosing them, and they will be popular once again in vanilla wow. In Classic WoW, Players should take some time to carefully select the professions that best match their classes.

There are in total 12 Professions in vanilla wow. A single character can only choose two Primary Professions at a time, and all 3 of the Secondary Professions, so there will be some difficult choices.

The Primary Professions include:

Gathering Professions: Herbalism, Mining and Skinning

These gathering professions are used to gather the materials that you will use them in recipes as ingredients to craft a variety of wow classic items, which can be sold on the auction house for classic wow gold.

Crafting Professions:

Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Enchanting, Engineering, Leatherworking andTailoring

These crafting professions are used to make potions, equipment, enchant gear and classic wow items with additional stats, which can be used for your character or sold on the auction house for vanilla wow gold.

The secondary professions include Cooking, First Aid and Fishing


Best Professions for Farming Gold

At lower levels, Gathering Professions (such as Herbalism or Mining) maybe lucrative, but they are also very time-consuming and don’t provide experience, so if you want to level up fast to level 60, skip them.

If your primary task is farming gold vanilla wow, you should collect everything you pass and sell them immediately. In the early days of the game, everyone is wow classic boost Profession, and player needs herbs and bars, so Materials are worth more. At the end, when more players are flooding the market, it is difficult to obtain wow classic gold, this is a solid strategy for affording all of your maximum level skills and your mounts at level 40 - 60, which in turn makes mining and Herbalism easier.


If you’re looking for the best ways to make gold, here we recommend the top combos as below.

 Skinning +  Herbalism

 Skinning +  Mining

 Enchanting +  Tailoring

Having two gathering professions is an easy way to sell your findings on the Auction House and make a quick profit.

Enchanting provides enchants, while Tailoring has the important bags that allow players to carry more loot at a given time. Enchanting’s mainly functions are using the  Disenchant on Uncommon, Rare and Epic quality items to produce their own trade materials, but it is difficult to level up.


Best Professions for Leveling Up: Tailoring, Blacksmithing and Leatherworking

If you want to obtain the gear, you can through a tailor, blacksmith, or leatherworker to make, provide you with solid upgrades as you level up. Combined with the right gathering Professions - mining for blacksmithing and skinning for leatherworking, it will be a very efficient way to keep parts of your gears update, speeding up your leveling, and you can pursue max-level gameplay. Unfortunately, once you hit maximum level, the chances of upgrades from these Professions drastically drop off, especially when you’re doing large-group raid instances.

Utility items are not frequent used in Classic WoW than Live server, so these three armor crafting Professions can make something useful. Leatherworking can make armor kits, which add armor or stamina to a piece of gear.


Best Professions for PvP

The Best Profession for PVP is Engineering. It is practically a must-have for PVP Twink character. You can not only utilize many types of bombs, grenades and other gizmos to aid in PvP scenarios, but also craft strong gear and build various type of vanilla wow items that can be used in combat versus other players.

Alchemy is another good choice, since you can craft potions that greatly aid you in PvP combat and restore health or mana, and even increase your movement speed for a short time (Swiftness Potions). Not to mention you can use the Elixirs to grant a stat buff for the duration of time, this is also useful in raiding.


Best Professions for PvE

Here we recommend these Professions for dungeons and raids:



Blacksmithing / Enchanting / Leatherworking / Tailoring

Some valuable consumables (potions, elixirs, flasks and more) are in end-game content. The important thing is that the ability to transmute certain wow classic items can be extremely valuable, particularly  Recipe: Transmute Arcanite.

 Engineering can absolutely help a player boost his DPS, or even assist a tank using various explosives to make extra threat.

 Blacksmithing,  Leatherworking and  Tailoring can all craft high end and Epic raid gear.
