Little background.... I am playing horde on a server that is about 90% alliance. I just got my DK through the DK quest line. With my other horde characters I have done all gathering, which usually is the way to go for money, IMO. The thing is, even most of what I gather never sells on the AH even at the cheapest listed prices ( my 90 hunter is mining and herbs, and to get the ore to sell, I have to undercut by 20% or it just doesn't sell..... and the herbs almost never sell regardless of price ).
So, even though it goes against my nature, I was thinking of maybe trying to make my DK a crafter with 5.4 in mind. But I have no idea what might be the profession to choose. I looked at JC, but there is so much competition that again, it would probably take major undercutting to sell anything.
To put this in perspective, I transferred via Booty Bay AH, 6 embersilk bags from my alliance characters and put them up on the Horde AH.... I had the only embersilk bags there. I priced 2 at 375g, 2 at 425g, and 2 at 499g....... not a single bag sold. I know that on alliance, bags sell like crazy at 400g or less.
So, looking at 5.4 crafting, what would you choose? Or just stick with gathering?
I'm not used to being poor, LOL.
