Enchanting or Tailoring ?
Return to board index
I'm a lvl 40 Frost Mage and for now my profession's are Engineering and tailoring, my tailoring is only 70 and Engineering is 30 but I want to change Tailoring to Enchanting for better stats. Is this a good idea ? Or shall I change it to anything else or just keep it this way? I also find it quite hard to find the mats for engineering but I want to make good gold and be good in pvp :/ Help?
Let me start off with saying that I am not too familiar with Engineering. But I can give you my take on Tailoring vs Enchanting, to help you choose between the two.
Stat-wise, every (non gathering) profession is more or less equivalent:
provides a gain of approximately 320 Intellect through
. You also get a cheaper leg enchant.
provides a gain of exactly 320 Intellect through
Enchant Ring - Greater Intellect
To make money, enchanting is definitely very rewarding if you are a dedicated AH trader. Tailoring is lucrative at times, right now the new crafted PvP gear is a nice money maker, but that will dwindle down a bit over time. It is definitely less time intensive than enchanting to make money off, even when using TSM or similar addons.
Leveling wise, tailoring is definitely the smoother of the two. You can easily farm the cloth for leveling. For enchanting a possibility is to use an addon to identify disenchantable gear (TSM does this for you as well) that is cheaper than its components. It will cost you some money in any case.
Hope this helps you!
How are you leveling Engineering? If you have another character who is a miner it would be ok to keep it but it gets progressively expensive to level it. Tailoring could be good since it gives you cheap leg and cloak enchants at end level, you also gain most of your materials by simply looting mobs, and you can make your own gear. People like to pair it with enchanting as most of the crafts are usually green or blue and help with the gathering of materials via disenchanting. But in the end just about all professions give just about the same stats and are balanced. It really is your choice on how you choose to level your professions unless your in a die-hard raiding guild. The best combo for min-maxers as I understand is blacksmithing and jewelcrafting.
I never actually thought about using another character for the mats. Thanks ! x)
Thanks this helped a lot ! :D
I strongly suggest dropping engineering and go with tailoring/enchanting, especially if you are going with a single character. Neither of these two crafts has a separate gathering skill and you can DE all of the tailoring skill-ups in order to level your enchanting.
Now don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with engineering but imo a cloth class will not get the best use out of some its best special items such as rocket boots. YMMV.
