WoW Classic professions are a great way to earn some extra in-game TBC Classic Gold or create items, gear, and consumables that can be used while you're out questing or taking on some of the tougher endgame content. Before you pick up any profession, it's worth doing a little research on what will benefit your particular class the most.
So First Aid is one of the three secondary professions available to all players in WoW. For players who don’t have healing spells or who aren’t also undertaking Alchemy as a profession the bandages like Heavy Netherweave bandage created by First Aid are among the best ways to heal yourself in battle or while out in the world without food. Overall due to the low number of materials necessary to level it First Aid is a wonderful skill for everyone to have capped. It will help with leveling even more with classes that lack sustain like warriors and rogues, but other classes can find it handy – like warlocks who life tap or want to heal their demon pet without using Health Funnel, out of mana paladins can also bubble bandage.
Since it doesn’t count toward your professional limit every class should learn First Aid. In TBC there are two new bandages: Netherweave and Heavy Netherweave bandage. The trainers for both Horde and Alliance to become a master and pass 300 First Aid are in Hellfire Peninsula – they sell you the master first aid book and the manuals for the two new types of bandages, so we’d recommend you just pick up all three when you get to Outland.
Cooking is most known for the well-fed buff which increases your stats based on whatever food you ate. The benefits are myriad, and there is the potential to make profit from selling rarer food buffs on the auction house to those without the recipe or the skills. Cooking has helpful recipes to help while leveling and endgame and provides amazing raid buffs. Smoked Sagefish is one that is amazing while leveling, it gives you Mp5, it also is brain food which means it gives you both health and mana back while you eat it, so it’s a nice one for leveling.
If you’re thinking about leveling fishing then definitely consider leveling cooking at the same time because they really complement each other, as you catch the fish you can cook them and you’re leveling both professions at the same time. So in TBC the master cookbook will allow you to level up your cooking to a new max of 375 and it is sold by Baxter in Thrallmar for the Horde and Gaston for the Alliance in Honor Hold. Because cooking is a secondary profession like the other ones we talked about all players regardless of class or faction should level it to 375.
Mining is one of the most essential Gathering Professions in wow classic TBC. It involves extracting ore from mineral nodes throughout the zones, and it provides reagents for Blacksmithing, Engineering, and Jewelcrafting. You can make use of the miner's basic ability to find minerals. It shows node spawns on your mini-map.
Mining is hugely popular, and it can certainly be a big classic TBC gold maker in TBC. It provides to multiple professions, so Mining can be profitable by selling stacks of ore or smelting bars, so in TBC, it's important to know which is more valuable. Jewelcrafting prospecting destroys ore to find gems, so definitely take a look at your prices to know before you sell the bars or the ore.
Mining is a great profession for any class, so once you're in outland, competition for Veins is going to become much tougher. Zones and flying mounts will decrease at the same time. It takes you to farm routes and reaches the nodes. I laid out some routes for you that are pretty popular. Fel Iron can be found by making circuits in any zone, but the two most advisable zones are Hellfire Peninsula and Tarot Card Forest. Hellfire is useful because it has the highest number of node spawns, and Tarot Card Forest is especially worthwhile for wow classic power leveling because you can quickly move to Negreanu to start collecting Adamantite. Now Adamantite is rarer than Fel Iron and will be the last mineral you'll need to gather.
There are quite a lot of changes to Blacksmithing in TBC. Blacksmithing is basically the craft of allowing players to create their own plate armors as well as two-handed Axes and Maces, and two-handed swords. In Vanilla, Blacksmiths are able to craft a number of high-value endgame recipes.
Blizzard has really expanded on that in TBC your range of gear that you can create much bigger, so Blacksmithing has huge potential, and it also has a huge price tag, especially if you choose to buy all your materials on the Auction House, so the combination of Blacksmithing and Mining is suitable for most wow TBC classes that wear plate and mail armor regardless of spec, and it's especially beneficial for tanks and melees DPS.
Alchemy is the art of brewing various consumables like potions, elixirs, and flasks. There are even a couple of trinkets introduced in TBC Classic that can only be used by Alchemists. Players with this profession can also create special Cauldrons that can be placed on the ground and used by their entire raid group to acquire a variety of temporary potions. This is quite similar to the Warlock’s Soulwell or the Mage’s Refreshment Table. Alchemy is by far one of the most profitable professions in World of Warcraft. Any serious raider, regardless of class, will gladly pay lots of gold for the top-tier consumables created by Alchemists.
