    Yea, yea, I know what's you're thinking. Subscription game, you can have alts with other professions etc. But for convenience sake, I might consider buying something like this. I want to play alts for the fun stuff, not for farming/making money. And it's not pay to win, as the small bonuses to player power from professions were removed like 3 expansions ago. The idea of always be available to gather that rare herb/ore, no matter what char you play on, is really cool to me. Same for having the toolkit to craft whatever you want on 1 (or every) character.
    Absolutely not.

    Even though you say it's not, this is definitely pay to win. The ability to have every profession on a character is more than just something cool. It is a clear competitive advantage. And as soon as the preferred (or, as you're suggesting, only) way of obtaining such if the only way to obtain such an advantage is through a paywall, then every serious player would be pretty much obliged to pay in order to remain competitive.

    ...this is all that need to be said right there in your own words.

    No. As a matter of fact, tradeskills should be their own classes, independent of adventure level. I should be able to create a tradeskill alt, park him in a city, feed him mats from my adventure main, level him up, and charge you RIDICULOUS, EXTORTIONIST prices for crafted gear. Not sarcasm, btw. I've wanted this since the beginning.

    I rather not. Choice should matter and players should not have everything on one toon.

    Yeah no. We don't need it. Just level up professions like normal.

    You can buy a boost for an alt and take two more professions.

    I like how this thread is the only one where everyone (except the vanished OP) is of one mind
