I have my warrior as a skinner/miner, i can make like 100g in less then an hour on him...and he is only lvl 75, i run around in like howling fjord with all those shoveltusk pull them together and just beat them down, its how i got from 72-74
Then i use the shoveltusk meat and send it to my rogue to cook with so farming as a leatherworker doesnt make bad money it just doesnt have a good bonus in my opinion.
