    What exactly do I get for being a blacksmith again?

    Do we get 1 extra gem socket or 2?

    No extra metas for armor smiths? What do weapon smiths get? Besides crafted gear.

    I'm considering dropping BS for something else. It's too much of a bitch to level up without having mining (other proff is enchanting).

    Mining? Smelting brings up your mining skill.... You can easily buy ore on the AH and lvl most of the skill with smelting. I believe you'd only have to mine twice

    Yes but 500 health from mining is not enough benefit to take it as a profession. Ring enchants alone are way better.

    I'm trying to clarify what the personal benefit to veing as BS was. Whether armor or weapon smith, beyond crafted sets (which are pretty crap).

    I'm pretty sure we got our own gem slot. At least one, but that may or may not have changed.

    Only if you have Kings or points in Vitality (as two Stamina to Ring enchants is only 48 Stam, or 480 HP).

    But regardless, Blacksmithing and Leatherworking is the most powerful tanking profession combination, due to +60 Stam from the two gem sockets (two epic +30 Stam gems) and the +90 Stam bracer enchant from Leatherworking.

    that still sounds pretty sexy to me, maxing out your extra slots as much as possible, are there any other professions that would work better together?

    cuz unless something turns out to be better i might just roll jew/armorsmith when i get around to making a dk

    Instead of seeing how a profession can benefit you through BoP enhancements, isn't it nicer to think about how you add to the gameworld -- your server -- as a whole by having a particular profession? I have two Blacksmiths and it is proving to be a pain to level; but it's fun to have particular professions, regardless of any benefits -- short- or long-term.

Although I have found my own Buddhist religion helpful in generating love and compassion, even for those we consider our enemies, I am convinced that everyone can develop a good heart and a sense of universal responsibility with or without religion.

    Could JCs make money at 70? My priest had it but I never made anything from it, let alone making back what the recipes cost. :/

    Perhaps at 80, some professions will actually make money. ><
