I come from a time and a place where I judge people by the content of their character; I don't give a damn if you are tall or short; gay or straight; Jew or Gentile; White, Black, Brown or Green; Conservative or Liberal.
All of the professions are more of a pain in the ass if you don't lvl them while you are questing/dungeon running at their lvl also. Even with that they are all pretty easy and quick to lvl. LW being one of the easier ones, you go to a place with a ton of animals and slaughter them all for their hides, the faster you kill and skin the faster they respawn it works out really well.

One thing that should always be done now is leveling your profs during the Darkmoon Faire. Plan out when you will hit a road bump in the leveling like where the mats arent available or really expensive and do the +5 skill quest.
i wish theyd take the level reqs off so i dont have to get to 80 to max shit out.
Gathering profs just take time and Insc, Alch, Ench(if you have a tailor, BS) are super easy.
I've never found it easier to level professions. I tend to follow the guides easily available by googling.
"If I can't do it in two hours, it's too hard".
A profession is supposed to take time. You either have to take the time and gather whatever is needed yourself or buy it off auction house. The latter one would take far less time, but would cost way more. Those who wants to become 600 in X profession with only a days worth of work, only has one option, and that is auction house. I've leveled far more profession than I have characters, and it takes time and money. And it is supposed to.
I really don't like the trend where people wants stuff handed to them with the least amount of effort. skilling Blacksmithing were and still is (despite the Ghost Iron change) a hard and costly profession to skill. I've done this thrice, one of those being less than a month ago. The same thing goes for pretty much every single profession as well, except for the fact that I'm able to earn cash during levelling the other ones.
Again, professions are supposed to take time. If you take the word 'profession' and put it out into the real world, it would take years of training and practice in order to proceed and get better at X profession. And no, Leatherworking is not broken. I would consider it one of the easiest to skill, as leather is rather cheap and/or to gather. There are far more skinners out there than there are LW'ers. In regards to Tailoring, I've hit the wall there a couple times when it comes to the rather large amount of cloth needed, but it is perfectly doable. Despite the need of 1000 or so frostweave cloth, you'll be able to farm that within an hour or two depending on your class and if you have the 2x increased amount of cloth thingy.
As an example. Skilling 1-300 back in Vanilla took ages. Far longer than it takes now. You have a ton of possibilities that you didn't or had limited access to back in Vanilla. Just the addition of flying in Azeroth is a major boost.

I don't find it hard or time consuming at all, even if I farmed up all the mats myself but I don't expect instant success from anything I attempt.
Like I said... most professions are in a good place. I disagree with the idea that ALL professions need to be easier. But LW needs to be brought into line with other professions, or skinning needs to be brought into line with other gathering professions.
I feel you! I made a monk, picked Skinning/Leatherworking and it totally slows me down... I love leveling my professions while leveling my character, so it's kinda realistic. But thats not the case with Leatherworking. I have all the heirlooms, plus enlightenment, plus guild perks and there is no way I can level my professions at the same pace.
I am 42 lvl, and still trying to farm Heavy Leather in Feralas.... I have abandoned my leveling so I can farm 100-120 mobs just to get LW to 180!
But lets face it, thats how lw works. But right now I think I'm gonna skip it, level up a bit and then return because I can't do both right now!
PS. I have leveled everything else to 600 except Inscription and Leatherworking... I have to say, Alchemy was the easiest by far.
