Best Profession for Resto Druid
Return to board index
My lovely alt druid is currently at lvl 61 and feral spec for lvling. I plan on going Resto once I hit 70 as healers are so thin on the ground and my guild could really use one.
I just hit 300 leatherworking and I'm getting the LW-ing blues. Its seems a giant waste of time to be honest. I haven't worn anything I've crafted since lvl 25 and armor kits aren't worth the enormous pain in the butt of lvling up this profession.
I've just read that resto druids who have leatherworking are ultimately disappointed with the endgame gear they can make and that its not worth doing LW-ing at all unless you stay feral.
Any Resto Druids on here that have LW-ing and can give me any advice?
I've been advised to ditch LW-ing and take up herb/alc but I already have that on my main (a shadowpreist) so what profession is ultimately the most useful to a Resto Druid (that isn't alchemy? )
There is nothing wrong with Leatherworking. When you get to 70, the Windhawk set is quite nice. If you are going to be bringing this alt in to high level content it may not be worth it, or if you are primarily a PVPer you'll want Kodohide of some sort. There is also the armor kits that are fairly easy to craft for money.
Whatever floats your boat really.
been doing some reading and workin on it now with my druid but goin with tailoring. With the buffs we get from the primal moonglade stuff and then also getting the threads from aldors for me it seems the only way to go.
Tailoring and LW will both give you excellent gear. From what I've read,
don't mind that it's cloth, until MH and BT, you won't find better.
I'm just making myself a Windhawk set for my resto gear (am feral),
and looking through some of the comments here and comparing it to
some gear around... it's extremely good. The mats are a pain,
not easy at all to obtain, but imo in the end, it's worth it.
Tailoring's best from what I've heard, but if you got LW, stick with it and
get Windhawk set.
LW and Alchemy.
Windhawk set is nice and Alchemist Stone
I've been herbalism / alchemy since I created the character, and I've often considered dropping herbalism for a more character-oriented profession, such as enchanting (for ring enchants!) but the reason I've stuck with it is because my druid is the only character I have with an epic flyer. Trying to farm herbs on a high-population server without one is pretty bad. However, once I'm able to get another char an epic flier I'll be ditching herbalism for leatherworking to craft the
Leather Chestguard of the Sun
come Sunwell. Ideally just pick up whatever you think you'll get best use out of. If you want a BoP item and there are no other logical alternatives, pick up its respective profession. Otherwise, just learn something you can make money from. :)
Always been herbalism/alchemy.
Seems to work out well, mutes provide a decent source of money and potions too when i bother to make them considered other professions but i have enough alts on the sever that I'll have pretty much every gathering and crafting profession maxed out soon enough + i have almost every recipe with soon so I'm not going to waste several thousand gold which I've spent on it so far.
i agree with shoggy
alchemy for the win =))
the alchemist stone provides extra mana regen with mana pots, the gear you make with leather working may be surpassed via raiding and or pvp/arenas
happy grinding =)
I took both Enchanting and Jewelcrafting on my Druid to try and min/max all of my gear. That being said my character is currently level 18 with both professions maxed (150), I am not sure if I will get bored with it or not. But it's the first time I have taken both of those professions.
