In which there is ACTUAL PLANNING.

139 Vendor recipes? I'm off to Northrend, aren't I? :(

I am informed there is an Expansion coming :D

With this fact finally registering after a couple of weeks there is now the realisation (yet again) I have EVERY PROFESSION on a Toon, and I'm going to have to level them all over again. Add to this that this time around I have one secondary profession (Cookery) which will have further branches of specialisation, and I realise there's no way I'm doing this without a plan. Most of my alts are maxxed on Cookery because I'm a sad completist. This means I can (potentially) send five alts down a specialisation path each. That could be worth a few gold if the items aren't Soulbound :D

First off I'm going to need more bag space.

Secondly, I should probably consider some other variables, namely:

  • Who's going to get levelled first
  • What Professions will be of the most use at Launch
  • What (if anything) will I want to be selling at Launch
  • What needs to be offloaded before Launch
  • Which raw materials I should stockpile to 'kick-start' each profession beforehand.

Whilst I ponder on this, I've made a list. This is all the family with the Professions maxxed, what professions they currently have, and what bag types/items they are currently using.

  • P (Skinning/Leatherworking)
    Skinning Bag, Leather, Volatiles
  • W (Elixir Alchemist/Jewelcrafting)
    Herb Bag/Gem Bag/Cata herbs and gems
  • K (Tailor/Enchanter)
    Enchanting Mats (Vanilla onwards) Cloth Bolts (same)
  • M [Rogue] (Engineering/Mining)
    Engi Mats (from Vanilla), Mining Bags, Cata Ore & Bars
  • N (Enchanting/Inscription)
    Scribe Satchels (inks from Vanilla), Enchanting Bag (Cata mats only)
  • S (Herbalism/Skinning)
    Herb Bag
  • M [Shaman] (Blacksmithing/Mining)
    Mining Bag (Cata ores), BS stuff from vanilla
  • M [Druid] (Flask Alchemist/Herbalism)
    Herbalism Bags, (Herbs from vanilla onwards)
  • G (Engineering/Mining)
    Engi Mats (from Vanilla), Mining Bags, Bars (from Vanilla onwards)
  • B (Jewelcrafter/Miner)
    Languishing in SW doing naff all.

There are two engis here so that I have access to both Gobin and Gnome Pets. There are two Alchemists to take advantage of transmutes and to give Flask and Elixir procs. I don't need two Enchanters any more, if I'm honest, but both have rare recipes that don't as yet overlap so I am loathed to reduce this to one. I had two before the days of Scrolls so I could enchant across two accounts... blimey, how did we ever manage without Scrolls ^^

Anyway I digress. I am considering levelling a third Alchemist for procs. I am also looking at swapping S's skinning skill for mining. I may yet dump an Enchanter altogether. What I do know however is that I have a lot of things I could be doing running up to the Expansion, and if I want them done I'll need to get started soon...

Hi! I just started reading your blog today (thanks to the egg hunt!) and I was wondering - what addon are you using to manage your tradeskills? That picture looks very different from my plain ol' default settings.

Cheers!

Hi Moxie!

The screenie above comes from an addon called Ackis Recipe List (http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/arl) which will provide you with a complete list of what recipes you are missing from a particular profession and where you can find them :D
