Dailies For ProfessionsFollow

I was wondering why Jewelcrafting is the only primary profession that has dailies. Is it the hardest to raise to cap? Or it might be that some developer was a jeweler! Any ideas?

I guess they ment it was the best way to provide Jewelcrafters with their own special currency needed to obtain mats and designs. No dailies means no epic gem designs.

I always thought that was a little odd myself. In leatherworking, you turn in leather or arctic fur for recipes. In enchanting, it's dream shards. Why not either jewels or ore for jewelcrafting recipes? I also thought it odd that while LW and enchanting use mats to buy recipes, you don't need to do so with alchemy, and inscription is like alchemy in that you learn things via creation and research. Perhaps they were trying to keep people interested in professions by changing things up somewhat, but a single standard may have been better.

I never had a Jewelcrafter during Burning Crusade. Did they have a daily JC quest back then as well? I can't remember hearing about it, but that doesn't rule out that it was one.

I'm much more a fan of alch click once every three days, because I don't do the daily and it leaves me with a lack of epic gem cuts.

There was not one.

I wouldn't mind dailies for the other professions as well and, conversely, an easier way for JC to purchase their recipes.

From what I remember, both the JC daily and "Northrend Alchemy Research" were experiments of a sort with different ways of getting recipes besides the rare/epic instance drops that drive LW and BS. I guess that the "rep plus token" ICC system is similar in a way.

The JC daily is not so bad. One or two you can complete in instances, and the others you can AFK on a bird while working your way up the LFD queue.

I am assuming a daily where the reward is a recipe. I am not considering any other kind of profession daily.

One thing that distinguishes JC from most other professions is the huge number of recipes. To compare this to the Leather and Shard turn-ins for recipes; I had all of those recipes six or so weeks after starting to acquire the mats. Otoh, I still don't have all the JC recipes after almost a year and I do the daily quest every dagnabbed day. Frankly I can't see a profession daily similar to the one for JC's working for any other profession for that reason unless they greatly slow down the rate of acquisition by either increasing the prices of the recipes or making the recipes random rewards.
