    Other professions need skins so sell ones you don't use at AH.Sell armour kits too.You can also save money by making your own armour rather than use the auction house.

    In my experience (300 tribal leatherworking) I didn't really start making any real money until later when I was able to skin for heavy/rugged leather and make devilsaur sets.However skinning is one of the easier professions as you tend to find corpses lying around from other peoples kills.

    For a guide on specialization (which you can do at level 40) look **Here**

    Go Herb/Alch, or Herbalism and some random profession. Herbs can be turned into potions, or just sold for a lot of money :)

    Don't get a tradeskill early on if you want to make money, get 2 gathering professions instead.

    Early game (from lvl 1 through to 40+) the best money making professions by far are a combination of either mining and skinning, or herbalism and skinning in my experience.

    as far as trade skills go, i made a priest and have had mining and tailoring. you get loads of tailoring stuff throughout the game which you can make a bit of money on, such as deadmines. plus, sometimes i could make items that would be good for my cahracter to use as well, saving money

    Herbalism is a licence to print money imo...

    Mining for me only really got profitable at the Thorium stage, especially as you have a chance of an Arcane Crystal which are always good sellers.

    Herb/Alch worked pretty good for me, use stuff for yourself when you're low level, then sell things later on at a higher level!

    I always go mining and skinning purely for money. You can sell the leather and metal bars for a lot especially seeing as they are very easy to make.

    I tried leatherworking and skinning once and found it was too much hassle trying to get all the reagents together.

    Herbalism + Skinning is the best combo for gold making IMO.

    Swiftthistle and Fadeleaf sell for ridiculous amounts on the auction house.

    yeah herby is a good money maker as herbs seemingly go for silly amounts on my server. seems to be better to sell the herbs than the pots !

    skinning is ok. i can make some money.

    Herbs is very good.

    I ditched herbs and alchomy at about lvl18 for some strange reason and went skinning/mining. Getting mining up to Iron level is very tedious and dosn't earn much. Same with skinning, there's so much on the AH that it dosn't earn an amazing amount.

    Herbs/alch is great as you can make up your own potions early on.
