    Peon - Chop down tree nodes and mine special gold nodes to build stuff like a 'portable inn' that lasts 12 hours and lets you log out in for rested xp, but cannot be placed in any existing town and cannot be placed within 100 yards of each other. temp forges and stuff, max level a gilnean wagon mount and so on.

    I don't see any need for any other profession. Rather revamp the current ones.
    I would like to see some form of specialization to every profession. Something that can be very well extremely time consuming and costly in regards of materials, but gives a crafter the choice of becoming a true master with exceptionally awesome (valid throughout an entire tier) items to be made. Or even give crafters the ability to upgrade gear.

    Wood crafting of course, the axe in Pandaria hints it :P

    Siege engineering; secondary profession used to gather materials in world pvp zones like Tol Barad, Wintergrasp and two new ones to feature the profession, and use those materials to construct, repair, modify and operate siege weapons and structures.

    Because Wintergrasp'n'friends is fun.
    If you are particularly bold, you could use a Shiny Ditto. Do keep in mind though, this will infuriate your opponents due to Ditto's beauty. Please do not use Shiny Ditto. You have been warned.

    it would be nice to have a "salvage" option. We should be able to salvage cloth gear for the cloth, leather for the leather etc...

    I have to say, Professions aren't the best content Blizzard puts out.

    Rather then getting a new Profession I would love to see a major overhaul to the old ones.

    These^^^

    To me, professions are something that you grind out in a day or two for the passive stat boost and maybe for making the odd item every now and then. I'd love it if Blizz revamped professions, making them much more involved and (dare I say) fun, but the likelihood of that happening is slim. Since this won't happen, I'd like to see a new profession that at least tries to be fun and interactive, no matter what the profession actually is.

    They were till WotLK when they became useless.

    I remember how LW was so kickass for DPS boosts for the raids, how BS would craft a lot of gear and sell it. How finding enchants around the world was quite hard, making enchanting a quite competitive prof where not everyone had, for example, mongoose or many classic enchants.
    Now a day every single player has everything, you get a prof up with 5k gold in 1 hour and then you sit with it. The best you can do with them is gold and keep passive boosts such as JCx2 gems or BS extra slots.

    Imo res professions rather than create a new one.

    I have some professions and secondary skills I would like to see added. Most important ones though are woodcutting/furnishing and diplomacy

    I can see woodcutting happen.

    For Diplomacy, it should be paired with current reputation-able factions and some sort of NPC interaction.
    f.e.
    If you are exalted with the tanaris/bootybay goblins, you can summon your own mercenary that can either heal you, serve as a bank, etc..
    Or it can make you feel special by learning faction/race x language and they would trade and chat with you - and you can fool around with players talking in an foreign language to them
    Or you 'craft' some fancy vanity armor based on faction x dresscode etc.

    Agreed. The last time professions were even mildly interesting was back in tBC.

    As said, what is needed is a significant revamp of the old professions rather than new ones. Some things I would like to see:

    - Profession specific quest lines awarding high quality gear or vanity items.
    - More personal benefits for taking a profession; high end BoP gear, for instance.
    - Reintroduction of specializations with rewards for completing specializations.
    - Merge the gathering professions with their respective crafting professions; Blacksmiths and Engineers automatically get mining, Scribes and Alchemists automatically get Herbalism, etc.
    - Reagent traders similar to Ink Traders for all professions, enabling farming of high level mats to be exchanged for low level ones.
    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.

    Without the adding new content purely to give it a purpose (Eg. Housing) I can't see a use for any new ones. Same problem Archaeology has, on it's own it's quite pointless, you just get the occasional item that another profession could have easily made instead eg. a staff.

    Honestly, I wouldn't mind seeing a woodcrafting profession that also used leather... and makes furniture for player housing and other vanity items. Like chairs you can summon for group members to sit on, etc. The "perk" could be like, trinket enchants.
