So you roll a Deathknight? Your main of another class has 2 gathering professions. Skinning and mining. You want to tank so you make your DK a leather worker and a blacksmith.
Wait this is not how it began…
You open your box, spend some time with the install disk, then spend minutes installing a giant game. You never heard of Wowhead or Wowinsider. You don’t even know what class to pick. You just know your friends told you to play horde on a specific server. You roll a toon, play it a bit, give up because warlock pets are so damn ugly.
The next day you log back in and notice the dwarf with the bear on the Vanilla trailer. You like that. Log back on and play on your warlock. Level up some tailoring and enchanting give up.
You decide to not to play with your Horde friends and roll a dwarf.
You run thru the snow your first 10-15 levels then meet some random dude in Wetlands. He tells you to level because WotLK is coming out. You are like “WotLK?”
Reroll on a different server because this guy just scared you by talking about some undead invasion and all that reminds you of are the zombies from the first Resdient Evil game.
Reroll your dwarf on one of those new player servers. You pick red hair this time and a long comfortable beard.
You level at your own pace. Don’t even hit level 70 until after WotLK comes out. You buy the collector’s edition because your Horde friend tells you to and your new guild is bad ass because everyone is online at the same time and everyone is leveling.
You decided to level Engineering because you are a Hunter and you can make your own bullets and range weapon. You also like the look of googles. Pre-transmog. You pick mining to help you level Engineering. You start a blog on WordPress to help you keep track of all the resources and blogs you discover.
You did not get 2 gathering professions on your first toon.
Min/Max is now entirely pointless.
