One of my BIG projects for this Beta has been to write some power-leveling guides for the Classic professions. I saved materials for several months on my Live realm, copied all my characters with their bags stuffed with cloth/leather/ore. I made five premade characters to learn the new professions so I could save my existing characters for Illustrious training. Then I waited for Blizzard to finish dorking around with professions so I could start testing.
Last week I gave up waiting, I just don't have any more time left to spare. Cataclysm launches in less than four weeks and I had 20+ guides and lists to compile. So I just started leveling professions anyway. My apologies if any of this information gets revised before launch, I had hoped to bring you guys the freshest data possible. I'm still waiting another week to see if the Illustrious tiers get any more clean-up before I start leveling them as well.
We just got these guides put online over the weekend. I leveled each profession from scratch, most to 300. On a couple of them I went a bit higher because I had enough materials to do so. I hope to extent these guides in future PTR realms, but I think this should be enough to get all you new Worgens and Goblins started on your professions!
New Power Leveling Guides:
Jewelcrafting has an existing guide, so I'm not including it here. That said, I plan to update with with more current information when I get a chance. I need to do a complete rewrite and I ran out of time for that. Also, Inscription has been updated with the new 3 inks per Glyph change that just went into the last patch. The rest of the guides are all new and about as current as you can hope to get for next month's launch.
I hope these will help you prepare for your new adventures!
