- To go with already existing ones.
I made myself a new alt today and was deciding on what new prof to level on him. I made a hunter, and to me for a gathering prof I always think skinning works well with it because of the track beasts spell, just like when I make a druid its usually herbalism because of the flight form aspect.
anyway, something I realized about some profs, there isn't enough options to tie with already existing ones.
For example. Choose herb gather, and with that you can choose to be an inscriptor or alchemist.
Choose mining, and you can choose to go engineering, blacksmith or jewelcrafting.
Choose skinning and only one that works with it is leatherworking.
Choose tailoring, and usually the only one that works with it is enchanting, since it doesn't require any gathering jobs.
It seems a little off place with some profs, and wondered what new profs could help with it.
enchanting gives you the ability to search though mining or herb materials for ancient dust or gems used in the profession.
skinning leather, now gives you organs (yum yum) to be used in ritual cycles to summon stuff, or helps level cooking.
Truth I can'y think much else to do with skinning, unless it involves something dark and grizzly like from silence of the lamps.
