From what i hear:

Paladin: B, you are a heavy armor class, the lighter armor wont benefit you. Also, Mining and Blacksmithing go hand in hand, Material Gathering>Forging

Mage:A, I hear that tailoring is pretty dumb/useless. I think i heard somewhere that tailoring materials are more valuable than crafted/tailored equip. Mages didnt have use for potions up until now, as you cannot drink your summoned water, or eat the food, In combat, whereas with potions, you can! Enchanting sounds so cool, but i hear its pretty useless now becuz of the Soulbinding technique implemented by Blizz, i hope it gets better tho(I'm hoping for negative enchantments/curses, so you can trick people hehe >:P)

Enchanting as it is currently implemented is not how it is intended for release. It is currently being completely revamped, but there is no ETA for when we'll see the new enchanting.

Mage: I'd definitely go Tailoring. Herbalism/Enchantment or Herbalism/Alchemy would be a good compliment to that, or if you're feeling fun, Blacksmithing/Engineering.

Paladin: Definitely Mining/Blacksmithing. Herbalism/Enchantment or Herbalism/Alchemy are once again nice compliments. Maybe Fishing/Cooking if you're feeling wild and crazy.

I'd go mining/engineering for the paladin just so you can have a range attack. Not that sticks of dynamite are wonderful or anything.

Don't go Mining/Blacksmithing, Tailoring or Skinning/Leather making unless you want to spend the time gathering resources to stay ahead of the level curve, otherwise you will be finding, through drops and quests, better armor and weapons than you can make.

I went the way Azuarc suggested with my Paly just because I wanted the range option and I am pretty happy with it.

My paladin did Mining/Smithing with Engineering on the side (when the smithing outgrew copper, etc. I would use those for engineering.) and had plenty of low level dynamite to pull with. Take a look at some of the higher level smithing recipes and tell me you wouldn't want to be able to make those. Eh? EH?!

I actually went fishing/cooking with my paladin. There were so many blacsmiths in our guild is was overwhelming. I do also possess herbalism to help out the alchemist/enchanters for my potions and enchantments. I had skinning and something else and tossed them.

Just to confuse you more and add to the mix :)

Herbalism is a collecting skill. This skill by itself only gives the player the ability/knowledge to be able to find and gather usefull plants. You cannot farm usefull plants without this skill.

Alchemy and Enchanting currently require materials gathered with Herbalism. Thus if you wish to be either an Alchemist or Enchanter you need to know herbalism or have a friend that does.

Skinning is a collecting skill, also. This allows you to skin skinable mobs for light, medium and heavy leather which is used in both Tailoring and Leatherworking. I haven't checked out Blacksmithing so I don't know if you need leather for platemail.

Mining is similiar to Herbalism and Skinning. This is another collection skill. By itself it only allows you to mine ores/metals that you come across. These items cannot be gathered without this skill.

So, basically Fishing, Hebalism, Mining and Skinning are all supporting or base skills for other skills.

Other skills; Alchemy, Blacksmithing, Cooking, Enchanting, Engineering, First Aid, Leatherworking, Lockpicking, Poisons, Tailoring and Survival
