This has always been the number one profession when it comes to player versus player content, since the beginning of WoW, it has provided players with several gadgets that have given them an edge over their opponents, some of those being Nitro Boots, Saronite Bomb, Mind Amplification Dish,  Hand-Mounted Pyro Rocket, Frag Belt.

This profession provides the user with the ability to create gear for themselves. Particularly in the first phases, this allows for a very strong advantage, but as time progresses the true advantage of this profession comes from the Lightweave Embroidery enchantment. Tailoring is best paired up with Engineering when you are close to high-end gear.

Jewelcrafting is one of the professions which can bring you plenty of gold while also contributing to the min-maxing aspect of the game. A Jewelcrafter can create special gems like the Mystic Dragons Eye which boost your resilience by a considerable value, and there are lots of gems that you can sell on the Auction House for a nice profit.

Best Professions for Gold Generation

If you aren’t worried about min-maxing your stats, and you don’t want to be poor, the following professions are all viable choices.

Alchemy is one of the most versatile professions you can have in the game, offering an assortment of useful effects from potions and flasks; it’s also a very capable way of loading your bags with shiny gold. If you are going to select Alchemy as your main profession it would be a good idea to pair it up with Herbalism, since the cost of the herbs might be too high for you to realistically acquire them from the Auction House.

This profession will generate very good income, especially when paired with Alchemy. It also offers one potentially good life-saving ability for PvP scenarios, this being, Lifeblood offers a heal over time effect that can save you in clutch situations.

Enchanting offers you the ability to enchant your equipment and your ally’s equipment with various magical effects that bring an edge. This profession also allows you to disenchant equipment in order to break it down into rare magical essence required for the practitioners of this craft but for other professions as well. Picking up the enchanting profession will allow you a special enchantment that can be placed onto your rings, for example for casters, it can provide 23 additional spell power on each ring. This profession is best paired with Tailoring due to the disenchanting ability, effectively allowing you to craft equipment that can be broken down into magical essence.

Mining will generate good income while also generating enough raw materials to level up professions such as Engineering or Jewelcrafting. Most people underestimate the profitability of mining, but rest assured that it’s a worthwhile profession. Not only it will provide you with a sustainable source of gold, but it will also provide you with a special passive that will enhance your PvP potency: Toughness increases your stamina by 60 at max rank.

Skinning is a gatherer profession that can be very profitable. Skinning grants you the ability to remove the pelts of the animals that you kill across your journeys. It also offers you a nice boost to your critical strike rating in the form of Master of Anatomy.
