Of course I know Leatherworkers cant get skin of mobs without skinning. DUH.
It was just a typo.
The point is like you said
Leatherworking is dependant on skinning
Blacksmithing is dependant on mining/alchemy
Jewelcrafting is dependant on mining
Engineering is dependant on mining
Can you see it now?
You guys are mistaking gathering proffesions with crafting ones.
That's what i'm trying to say...
ALCHEMISTS need HERBALISM to be mostly self-sufficient at max skill
LEATHERWORKERS need SKINNING to be self-sufficient at max skill
ENGINEERS need MINNING to be mostly self-sufficient at max skill
JEWELCRAFTERS need MINNING to be mostly self-sufficient at max skill
TAILORS need NOTHING(kill humanoids for cloth) to be self-sufficient at max skill
BLACKSMITHERS need MINNING to level up to 600, but once there we need ALCHEMISTS or we cannot craft belt buckle / epic gear.
I think it's not that hard to get it...and see that there is a problem with BS.
Comments like "get a alt with alch" "buy off AH" are complete useless
