    I need a 'Raid' profession.

    Throughout my entire 6 year play time I've never been a person for professions. It's pretty embarrassing. Right now on my main, a Warrior, I've only got Mining to max. I'm applying to raid guilds recently and the profession side of things always let's me down. Most of the time I'm required to have a 'raid' profession. What exactly is this, and what would be the best one for a Warrior?

    Thanks.

    Professions all give some kind of stat bonus like JC get 320 Str,Agi,Int,.etc. gems, Blacksmith gets extra bracer and glove sockets, so on so forth. You can just pick one that you want to have or if you Min/Max pick one that coincides w/ you role. For instance, Skinning is great because it gives passive crit, so if your a Fury Warrior you would probably want to have skinning. You see?

    I dunno how it is in MoP, but in Cata inscription was by fast the cheapest and quickest "raid" prof to level. Become an inscriptionizator.

    As well as mining, I've got JC to about 150. If that's considered a raid profession, would that be the best one to use? Plus it's a money making proff as well, isn't it? I've always been torn between Inscription and JC, though. So any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Mine lots to get your Jewelcrafting up to max, and enough for you to then level Blacksmithing (replacing Mining).

    Get Mining on an alt though.

    since str could quite feasibly pull ahead of crit at later gear levels, or if you need to go arms, BS and JC would offer you more flexibility in choosing which stat you're maxing with.

    just a thought.

    Both Dyra and nalaya said it; keep JC and grab BS. Engineering is also an option I reckon. I'm no warrior expert but as far as I know, Engi is not a bad option either; Str boost CD on gloves + gizmos for fun. Having also enchanting on the recommended Mining-alt is not a bad idea; you can level Ench by DEing the stuff you make as a BS on your main and you can save on Ench mats when you get new gear. Herbalism on the alt will most likely have you save on flasks and potions when raiding, if you have a guildie make'em for you.

    Most guilds won't accept skinning as a raid profession, as it just gives a secondary stat (crit) rather than a primary one (strength/agility/int).

    Since you already have mining - just get yourself JC+BS. Follow 1-600 guides to profession leveling, most of them tell you upfront what mats you will need. Use your mining to get them all, and level it up. Should take you a day tops
