I`m a PVE man.

I was moved to another realm recently, I grow up to lvl 60, I learn professions then I'll use that boost to 90. 

What Will Be the best professions for resto shaman in WOD?

At this point, professions should be thought of as convenience/gold making abilities...I doubt there will be professions that are "best", in a pve output sense, for class "xxxxx" like there were now and in the past.  I would pick ones that you like. Ill probably keep Alch and JC for my Resto sham just because they have good synergy and flask procs are very nice =)

 

Keep in mind, I haven't done a lot on the beta so maybe there still are "better" professions?

As you said, they're removing the bonuses from professions; pick whatever you want.  Since you're leveling it up for free, engineering, jewelcrafting, and enchanting all jump out as professions with either A) fun toys or B) commonly used stuff, so being able to make your own gems/enchants rather than visiting the auction house might be worth doing.  However, you can also get limited access to professions through the garrison, so a gathering profession isn't a bad idea either (now that they won't come with what amounts to a raiding penalty).

I would advice Leatherworking for being able to craft your own armor pieces and Enchanting for both enchants and disenchants

1. I'm aware that raid loot and tier pieces are better than craft, but still it can be useful, especially on the start, like 522 and 553 belt and pants in this expantion.

2. On the later stage of the expantion, when most of the loot just go for DE, you will be happy to do some money from the shards and not just dump all the loot to vendor.

It's my opinion only, based on personal preferences, because as we all know - no more PvE buffs from professions.

No point in have enchanting as you can DE your gear in your garrison with the enchanting house. Yes you could make your own enchants but if your selling the disenchanted mats youd probs end up making more gold from them then the gold youd save from selling them.

Engineering is keeping some of its bonuses (rocket boost and the glider) so that seems an almost must have for speed/utility.

Besides that then yeah, maybe leatherworking for your own gear or if your in a guild that smashed through the current normal content soon to be heroic then thats not going to be that useful, so try a gathering or a daily cd (inscription, alchamy, jc) for some gold

Boosts share cooldown with potion sad.png

Except for esoteric uses (like current EMP generator on blackfuse if you're lacking CC from different DR classes) it's basically RIP.

It doesn't seems to me any good to argue about professions bonuses in WoD for PvE when Blizz said clearly that it will not work anymore. So the only weight in your decision might be what you are ready to do in exact profession and what is fun for you: some people hate to farm - no joy in gathering profs for them, another like to play on AH - here it may be JC or Ench, want to get omg amount of receipts - go for craft (just for example). But what the point to look for and argue about something that does not exist anymore?

I wouldn't worry about it at all.  I'll probably run Inscription / Leatherworking.

 

Inscription for early Darkmoon Faire trinkets and early gold gain.

 

Leatherworking for the gear possibilities (especially when you're looking at Challenge Mode loot), gold making that lasts through the game, and, if they exist in WoD, free leg enchants.

Did they get rid of the bonus to flask time for Alchemists? I know they don't get more stats but if flasks still last twice as long, it could save you a bunch of gold while raiding. Inscription is also a great choice due to darkmoon cards selling for a ton early in an expansion.

Double time is still in, and would be another very good choice instead of Leatherworking.

Don't expect the massive gold dump for the darkmoon trinkets that existed the last 2 expansions, the trinkets will not be availible before raids and atm they do not have the dual primary stats they have had in the past.

 

Profesions are not yet finished in beta anyway so too early to tell

I just wanted to add that the double time for flasks perk for alchemists is now gone...so no professions offer specific perks at all, which is the status Blizz has said they intend for WoD.

 

I've been checking professions out very closely in beta, and honestly (as pointed out earlier in the thread) I can see no reason at all to consider any profession over another as "best" for Resto Shaman or any other class.  Professions are going to be changed completely in WoD. I can't say I am thrilled about the changes, but that is a separate topic.

 

I am sure folks will figure out ways to profit from them, but if they are implemented as is, then just pick one that looks interesting, as they will have no impact on your raiding or on your character spec.

 

Re: Inscription - Darkmoon cards are also being changed both in terms of how they are made and their stats.  At the moment I wouldn't choose Inscription if you are considering doing so in order to make a profit from Darkmoon trinkets in the early months of the expansion. I don't think that will be happening.  I'll edit/update here if that changes or if I find I'm wrong.

      Hello there,

      I am trying to find a character that suits me and 'till now i didn't find it..
      I have a Paladin level 110, a Rogue, DH, Warrior and a Druid. I really enjoyed to play Prot. Paladin but i was overwhelmed with all the knowledge i need to know for raids.I have to say that this is the class that i played the most. I have to say that i usually play in weekends and sometimes in week days.
      I enjoyed playing warrior in PVP but, that was it, nothing else..

      Two days ago i just got my Druid level 110 and played as Feral (with the intention to play Resto or Guard 'cause i want to be a healer and/or a tank but i found the rotations a little off for me..)

      Anyway, my question is, what should i play? I was thinking about a Disc Priest or a Ench/Resto Shaman or a Brew/Mist Monk. I just can't decide what i should play and unfortunately i have to level them from scratch..

      Any advice ?

      I really need a new perspective 'bout what i should play :)

      Thanks!

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!

      I have recently started a new Resto Shaman so that I can learn the healing function from the beginning.  My character is only lvl 37 at the moment but am trying to figure out what healing weapons would work for this spec.  
      Because the static group I am in has chosen to forego the use of heirlooms, I am using only a few items to gain the 3 levels I need to catch up with them.  However, when I searched for information on what weapons would be best for this spec at my level, most of the sites I find are talking about the artifact weapons, which doesn't help me.
      Can anyone provide feedback for this topic?   I really would appreciate any pointers.
