    "Professions" in Guild Wars 2

    hey guys, i haven't heard anything about gathering/crafting professions like smithing, leather working, mining etc.

    Also, will the AH work the same way as WoW. Something i really enjoyed about WoW was making gold, will they have this in GW2?

    I think the AH will be a bit more balanced than the one in WoW.
    As for crafting / gathering / etc. I think the best source is from Omlech's thread, "Guild-Wars 2 Mass info for the Uninitiated":
    Crafting – Crafting professions are called Disciplines which you can have 2 activated at any given time on a character. You can switch to any of the other 6 at any time for a fee and the good news is if you obtain recipes and skill points in any Discipline, you will retain everything even if you switch out of it. The more skill points you have in your Discipline will determine the fee when switching from one Discipline to another. This is to encourage trade amongst players and facilitate communication.
    There are no gathering professions; anyone can gather anything in the world. Every gathering node in the world is instanced for every individual player, so if 2 people are in the world you can both gather from the same node.
    Crafting will be setup so it will match your Profession progress through the game, this makes it so when you craft items you shouldn’t be crafting a bunch of worthless stuff you don’t need.

    AH thread ---> http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...-system-in-GW2

    also ---> http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Market

    Gathering ---> http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Gathering
    Crafting ---> http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Crafting

    All of those links could explain better than we can. We'll just be saying the same thing as those.

    Just so you know:
    GW2 "professions" = Wow "classes".
