Whitegandalf / Crazzyfury , If my memory serves me correctly you are the recent FF convert right? If so it wont take ya long to figure out the reason that crafting is eazy, is becasue the wares you make are not the best in the game(a few exeptions), being so eazy and that anybody can do it, NO CRAFTING JOB IS A MONEYMAKER, That is not to say their is not a living to be cut out of a crafting porfession, but if ya want a money maker, just gather stuff and sell to the crafters. This will blow your mind, the materials are worth more than the finished product.
Realisticly, you choose a crafting profesison baised on one or two endgame items, and the dragonscale cape is that one item, and it rocks, I have sold the making of one(where somebody else brought me the mats) and just for making it got a 10 gold tip.
So here are the pros of Dragonscale leatherwroking, especialy in your case.
Honestly you will only ever use 2 types of the basic Dragonscale items, the dragonscale gloves(mmmmm extra cirt on gloves), and then black dragonslcae items(4 pice set but you wont be getting one pice till you party up and go to the MC with a guild and get the pattern for the epic pice)but as far as the remeining Black dragonscale stuff, they rock becasue you can get them without ever going in to a instace(although it helps insanely to get in to BRS). so even the super casual player can grind out dragonkin to get the scales needed and oooo ya a huge ammount of them too. I never said this was the best way to go, but it gives a hunter a opurtunity to get some good fire resist gear. http://wow.allakhazam.com/db/itemset.html?setid=489
Lots of folks hate this set and say "No AGI" well remember RAP(Ranged Attack Power) is exelent for susstained dammage and with 3 pices of the set get ya "Improves your chance to get a critical strike by 2%"Essentaly the ammount of Crit that 108 agi will get ya, but on the level 40 dragonscale gauntlets and your cursing.
With all that said, you can find better in a instance, Hands down, so why craft? for fun, for convience, for someing to do, and not to be Mr.Greedy pants that only wants money, but thats OK Too, if ya want money, just gather stuff and sell on the AH.
Hope ya enjoy WoW
