Got curious enough about WoW.

Postby Wired » Fri Aug 19, 2005 4:55 am

Took me a while...and playing just about EVERYTHING I have... But since I'm currently jobless again, I went out and bought WoW to try it out.

I've already decided on a Priest. (Cause I've always liked bein' the healer in RPGs) But...what's a good server to play on?

Good thing I didn't get too far along on the character I was buildin' I guess. ;) Ya, I'll switch servers. (no biggie to start over when you're only level 6.) But dammit, I'm makin' another priest.

I'll do it sometime later today though...cause I've been upallnight...gonna go sleep for a little while first.

I don't play on Hyjal, but if you've got any questions about your priest, I'm a good man to ask

How about some tips on which two jobs to pick? (herbalist/alchemist/etc...)

I wouldnt go herbalist/alchemy simply becaus part of alchemy is making healing pots...and seeing that you're a priest, well...yeah, you understand...

I'd say that hands down, the best prof for a priest is tailoring. Not only does it not require a gathering prof (such as blacksmithing or leatherworking...which require mining and skinning), but seeing that you can only wear cloth...a profession that is dedicated to making cloth works out well...

So what goes with tailoring? You've really got two options here...either money-making, or another useful profession....If you were going to go with another useful profession, it would be Enchanting...this is a profession that allows you to add stats to weapons and armor...This is where those cool blue, red, white, and green glows come from if you've ever seen them on higher level weapons. In order to enchant, you need materials to do so...these materials come from DISenchanting green, blue, or purple items (which ultimately destroys the item)...So...you could use tailoring to create your own green, blue, or purple items...then disenchant them to get mats for enchanting...this saves time farming for green items....also saves money from buying them in the AH...This combination, of tailoring and enchanting can be costly though...until higher levels when you can sell your enchants for lots of bucks....There is a "secret" to making money off enchanting in the earlier levels too...if you'd like info on that, lemme know.

Now...what else goes with tailoring? Well I said you could also go with a money-making profession...this would be one of the 3 gathering professions - mining, skinning, or herbalism...Basically you can pick one of these, and sell all of the materials you gather in the auction house...You'll hear people from all sides say one makes more money than the other, blah blah...I really dunno which makes the most money. What I'd personally go with is skinning...Couple reasons...First of all, it's the easiest to find of the three...Instead of searching for mines and flowers...You can simply go slaughter where you know beasts are, not only that....but they will then respawn, unlike mines and flowers...Furthermore, many times you can follow another player that is killing - that doesnt skin - and skin the beasts that he/she kills ahead of you. Second reason skinning is good for a tailor...well, some of your recipies call for leather...Picking up skinning makes obtaining that leather much easier

that's all I got for now, lemme know what you think..


Basically....I'd strongly recommend tailoring, almost a must have...

Then for the second I'd go for either Enchanting or Skinning

my priest is doing alchemy and enchanting...why those 2..well when you level up is when those trades start to pay off...alchemy you can learn to transmute thorium into arcanite bars which sell for about 12 gold a piece and you get about a gold a piece on healing pots and a few other neat potions that warriors and other chars need when they get to end game...
I have my hunter gather for my priest and my warrior is a blacksmith armor smith..when my priest reaches 300 in his trades i can transmute the thorium for purple items which are the highest value items so far and sell for major gold..plus any chants i need for any of my chars...
if you are just going to have one char ..and it's a priest ..yeah i would go one trade gathering and the other talor...
herbalism is a good one because even the low end stuiff sells for good gold.. mining is being way to farmed out by outside gold selling companys we call ebayers...they farm the mines and any other gathering trades stuff and sell it on the AH for the gold then sell the gold for real money to people in the realms..herbs are easyer to get than the high end viens like mithril and thorium and truesilver..

I think I'm probably going to go with the clothier/enchanter recommendation...more useful to me. Made level 8 on the Hyjal server this evening...although I accidentally joined a guild unintentionally thinking I was hitting the cancel button. (sigh) Still haven't figured out how to leave the guild yet.
