Race for 525 - how are you doing it?Follow

Did you stock up on old world mats for an initial boost or are you simply going to dive in and start gathering xpac stuff?

My JC is going to knock out a few purple gems simply because my alchy's been cranking them out but that'll ceiling out pretty quick I imagine.

Alchy will burn it's flask mats and then continue to crank out gems but again, there's a ceiling for LK mats somewhere and I'm betting it's not far past 475.

Was thinking about doing Abysal Bags on my tailor but then I remembered that the new bags would be as good or better and a heck of a lot cheaper most likely, plus, my main can feed it cloth - that toon should at least be able to level almost entirely without having to ever leave the mailbox/tailor trainer.

The tailor is also the chanter of course and so that's more luck - should get most of the distance from being fed by the others.

LW is my main and he'll just skin his way up the ladder - all the high end LW recipes are too expensive to even think about wasting LK mats on.

Inscriptionist will be pretty screwed - it might be able to skill off of some old recipes for a bit but I'm sure it'll hit a wall eventually - it's gonna have to fight it out with the alchy to see who gets to level and who gets hand-me-downs.

Engineer is even more screwed - that toon isn't advancing until it starts leveling or the JC levels first and starts sending it hand-me-down ore.

My alchemist isn't quite at 450. I think she's at 446 right now. I haven't bothered just because it was so close to the expansion and I didn't figure there was much point in blowing gold to learn transmutes that were going to be obsolete in a couple weeks. In going for the herbalism first, I'll be hitting up Northrend areas for less competition, and so any flask mats I get from there will help jump start the alchemy. My other toon's profs I'm not too worried about.

My gatherer is my hunter, and he definitely won't be the first to 85. I'm not going to be in a monster rush on my main's engineering and tailoring, since buying the new mats is going to be insane.

Pushing my LW/JC to 85 first then bringing up his feeder. Plan on buying patterns with mats as a priority over crafting, possibly buying some mats to learn recipes that are in demand. Will spend some time in trade getting work while waiting for groups to run heroics.

My tailor/chanter will be getting fed by both of these toons and will be likely capped by the time she hits 85 or shortly after.

Either way not really rushing for server firsts with any profession but do want most of them capped in the first month or so.

Plan on spending tons of gold extremely quickly then - I'm half tempted to have my LW just toss his stuff onto the AH for what will most likely be an average of 5-10g per leather.

There's virtually no risk in assuming that the going rate for crafting mats will gradually decrease over time once it hits an initial equilibrium. Until then, it's going to be inflated even more by huge demand from rushing crafters with money to burn.

I definitely plan to treat any mats I get my hands on like Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate, and sell short as heavily as I can.

I just gotta say, I love my guild. I had a lot of support in my server first herbalism attempt, with one guildie even donating 75% of the cost of master flying to help me out. I didn't quite make it, but I did get maxed out by an hour or two after launch. Now I'm getting lots of donations and we're all spreading the love to try and get people's crafting professions maxed so we can try and get the server first max all professions guild achievement. I'm at 517 in my alchemy now. I'm able to make some blue transmutes now, not quite all of them. As soon as I get maxed I can help the guy who is going after Jewelcrafting.

I'm utilizing cloth that I gather for making a few items for myself with Tailoring. I'm not really worrying about professions until I level cap my main. After that, I plan on leveling my gatherer (hunter) to 85, and saving mats gathered toward leveling engineering on my main.

I power level professions often, but I'll be waiting a bit before buying any leveling mats.

Edit: I tailored the entire Deathsilk set. It's nice you can actually make some gear you can use.

I had a **** of an easy time getting 525 skinning. Did it all outside of the boat in the underwater zone. People left eels and crabs EVERYWHERE and nobody was skinning them. Far as Leatherworking goes just making stuff as I gather the mats.
