Whats your thoughts on professions, It's a hard choice as you can only take two major ones ?
My opinion (I'll keep it short)
Crafting professions are a funny thing. I feel the system could have been done much better, BUT IT'S AMAZING how good it keeps the economy and Auction house alive !
I don't like to craft in any game, too much of a time sink that keeps me away from adventuring. However a player would starve without taking two professions. I play with the mindset of harvesting to supply the crafters.
They hit the mark and nailed it on their first try. Classic World of Warcraft had a perfect balance of combat difficulty with skill and gear. Games today have no need for crafting as their easy along with everything given to the player. Add that the player out levels everything in one hour.
At low levels you had no money, you ran around with all trash gear (white), but as you hit level 17 you needed better stuff, but at the same time most would have the perfect wealth to afford what you needed from the auction house. Better yet, around 17 is when you could run dungeons and collect better stuff (greens and blues). Keep what you need sell the rest.
Everything about this game is well balanced !
