Leveling Leatherworking and making gold

Craft leather and mail armor with leatherworking. In addition to this, you can craft other useful things like ammo pouches and leather quivers. There’s also the odds and ends such as the occasional cloak and armor kits which increase the armor value of a piece of equipment. Leatherworking is great for classes that use leather such as rogues, hunters, and shamans since they can create their own gear while leveling.

Level Enchanting and make gold

Enchanting is the profession in which you make items better by adding stats and unique effects to them. If you want to spend all day in trade chat pressing the same macro to advertise your engchants while making friends (who usually expect friend discounts) and profiting mostly off of tips, then this is the profession for you! If you can get some of the rarer recipies, usually raid drops or rare world drops, then you can make some decent gold. If you can’t, then don’t expect much off the enchanting side of things.

There’s another side to the profession of enchanting though, that is disenchanting! This is where you can make a good profit by getting better use out of the old items you have laying around. You do this by breaking down uncommon, rare, and epic items into enchanting materials including various types of dusts, shards, and essences. This leads to free enchanting materials as you gain (and thus replace) gear; receive items that you don’t have other uses for; or purchase off the AH.
