    It was REALLY easy. Some herbs can be really cheap. Everything you make has market value. Unlike most crafting professions where most players don't want the crap you make. Not to mention the vellums. Those always sell.

    Tailoring is a bit of a pain in the ass. Go through massive amounts of cloth and quite a few enchanting mats.

    I've already got enchanting mats of all levels stocked up on my enchanter, so that's not a problem. Same goes for herbs on my alchemist.

    I also made sure to save all the netherweave and frostweave since I knew I'd level it at some point, about a thousand of each. Nothing to prep for 1-300 though.

    That's good to hear. After leveling jewelcrafting and blacksmithing simultaneously, I'd love an easy profession.

    As for money? Do dailies, don't spend it.

    At 300g a day, easy, for the Icecrown Dailies, you'll be over 2k gold a week. Then you just save. Cause seriously, WTF do you have to spend money on anyway?

    I like to level alts, so my money gets spent on: class abilities, mounts/training, occasional BoE gear, repairs, flight paths when they can't fly, gems, and enchants I can't do(beskerking especially).

    Usually I make more money than I spend, so it's not an issue.

    My guild got LK down tonight! I was asked to respec my priest to disc, had 3 heroics for practice and then into LK.

    Downed him on our 3rd attempt.

    Regarding moneymaking + professions, I'm levelling a druid with mining + skinning and am ROLLING in it. He's paid for my main's epic flying and gives her a wage of 100g every couple of days for flasks and stuff. My main is a tailor + enchanter, and it's just painful. Enchanting is hugely useful, but tailoring is just requiring insane amounts of cloth at the moment.

    The affliction tree is still a little top heavy. Past the 20 point level, there's really nothing you can skip. Soulburn: corruption is maybe a little bit otional but I don't think there's really a better place for the point.

    I make about 450 gold a day for just doing 20 or so dailies in Ice Crown. Most of those are group dailies, and most of them are grouped together. In there, as well as the group ones, I do the infra-green bombing ones. Not bad money for 10 minutes of work, and I've never had to do it. I also do all of the Argent Tournament ones. I always save room to do the fishing and cooking daily, and can usually pick up a few dailies in Sholazar while I'm there fishing. Those pay 16g instead of the normal 12g.
    Since I'm at max rep with all the 5 cities, I take the bag, so that's usually another 50g.
    Add in looting mobs that drop money and selling things, and it's easy to just make money.

    Other things that I do to make money:
    Since my main is a LW, I occasionally make the pants armor, and sell those for 150-250g, depending.
    Grab my miner and run around the Badlands for iron and mithril, and just raaaaake in the dough. Seriously. Since those are the worst to mine, and gold is easy to come by, people will pay out their rears for some ore instead of taking the time to do it themselves.
    But then again, that's been true since dailies were introduced in BC.

    Gems and enchants. If you're in that stage like me where you're starting to really amass Triumph Emblems, and you're starting to piece together your T9 and 232+ pieces, you go through gems and enchants pretty quick. I've probably spent 700 gold in the last two days on epic gems and various enchants for new T9 level pieces I've been getting.

    Right now their design sounds good, and they both have different niches (one direct, other aoe cooldown). So I think the talent will probably be worthwhile too (for two points, a 44% increase in duration)

    They even took the reagent cost off. Not sure if they're trainable at a trainer yet though.

    I don't know your server economy, but I really hope you're not buying the gems pre-cut if gold is a problem. :P

    Probably same thing with enchant scrolls. Personally, I do buy the scrolls because I'm so damn lazy, but I always have a lot more gold than I need.

    Edit: Of course! It depends on the cost of material versus the finished cost. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy pre-cut after all!

    Right now the Felguard doesn't really have any mana problems (he can benefit from things like Replenishment) so I don't know how necessary Mana Feed is. Those two points are definitely either going there or Ancient Grimoire though.

    Your Assassination build is effed up, why would you take imp slice and dice when cut to the chase is refreshing it each time you use Envenom? Deadly Momentum is only useful while leveling, and leveling you should be combat anyway. As an Assassin rouge one don't use any of the skills aggression buffs, so there are two other wasted points. And Jesus you don't have quickening, a flat movement speed buff is one of the best DPS boosters there is. You need relentless strikes more than most of the other talents.

    Imp exposed armor is great because it's a free move, so take that over Deadly Momentum, drop the second tier combat talents and take relentless strikes.

    Maybe something like this. I ran at this quick and I know you're trying to make them good at both PVE and PVP, but you're gimping some PVE abilities hard.

    Perhaps take improved sprint 2/2 with some rejiggering, because of it's dual usefulness in escaping CC in PVP and ensuring mobility in Raids.

    You know what was nice at the weekend?

    My 2nd elemental shaman hit 80; I sign up for heroics, and get H HoL. Our druid healer dies on the little rock elemental bit, and the tank carried on to the next lot of trash. I healed that bit, because it was pretty obvious he wasn't paying any attention to our healer being dead.

    I rez the druid, we carry on. We get to Ionar, the wind elemental type boss. The boss changes into his little blobs. The dps go to about 30%, because I guess one had the debuff that hurts others standing nearby when dispersion happened. The r. druid drops to about 30%, and is standing in the little lightening blobs.

    At this point, I had the audactiy to throw 2 LHW's on the druid.

    The healer then had a massive go at me, for the rest of the fight and for a bit of trash after, the reason being he hated it when dps used their heals.

    Not as if I was short on mana + I was standing at range I was far away from the lightening blobs, and there wasn't much else for me to do, because I couldn't dps boss.

    I didn't bother pointing that all out, I just said I wouldn't heal anymore.
