    What trade skill(s) combo best suits you?

    Herbalism benefits Alchemy
    Skinning benefits Leatherworking
    Fishing/Survival benefits Cooking
    Mining benefits Blacksmithing/Engineering

    I really don’t know all the combos, but give me your thoughts.

    I have chosen tradeskills that are appropriate to the classes of my planned characters.

    Blizzard has also said they will be adding many more tradeskills. I am waiting for those additional trades to be added before I go examing the "synergies" too much.

    I think many aspects of the game with change before retail. And with those changes, so will our choices. I plan on playing a NE Druid, but if things keep getting nerfed, I many change my mind. So for now, we can only plan on what we know, which goes for the trade skills as well.

    I think the idea of cooking in an MMORPG is really dumb. Like in SWG, how you either had to eat stuff or get buffed just to be able to use your gear...

    In WoW, eating is not a necessity. But it can be used to decrease downtime and grant temporary enhancements (i think).

    Cooking gives you something to do when you're not wasting your life grinding experience.

    If all you do is get in the xp grind you catch on too soon that the game is a hollow piece of crap with no real attraction other than that of having a powerful character.

    Nice link Kat, a close friend of mine is CEO of a new gaming site called gamergod.com they have a similar database for WoW as well as a list of all in game items and their cost.

    If anyone wants a direct link: http://wow.gamergod.com/PriceCheck.cfm

    On the topic of food. I WoW Hunters tend use food to keep their pets happy which comes in handy if you want your pet to keep fighting with/for you.

    I hated how in the arcade version of the new one you had to keep putting money in to regain health. Needless to say I never made it off the first zone.

    I've got enchantment/herbalism/alchemy. So far enchantment has been useless since I have yet to find an item to disenchant to get the magical powder/essence that I need to enchant stuff. I can buy it, but at 8 silver each, it is too expensive.

    Herbalism/Alchemy works great though.
