It honestly does not matter; they are all about the same in giving you equal access to about + 320ish Intellect, I believe.

I would say that you should pick professions that instead complement your overall "personal" production chain. Paying for spellthread? Make him a tailor. Paying for gems? Make him a JC. Don't have access to crafted intellect plate? Make him a BS.

Once you have every professional at max level, you will be amazed at how little you spend on character "upkeep" (except time) and how much you have to spend on the things you cannot make. The BMAH is calling you!

TIL that there are still fresh people on this forum.

Also the correct answer is Herbalism and Mining. Lifeblood and Toughness work well together to keep you alive when you stand in fire. There's really no other acceptable combination.

What are gemming strats for Holy Paladins?

If you gem straight int, everything is equal. If, however, you'd gem haste, crit or spirit I'd say Blacksmithing>>other crafting profs>Jewelcrafting>Mining.

That's because BS let's you get extra gems with secondary stats (meaning you can get +640 haste instead of +320 int) while JC forces you to gem int instead of a secondary stat (as 320 int is probably better than 320 haste no matter what).

You seem to have the Stupid Thread Creation profession down to a science.

May I suggest Underwater Basketweaving as a complement to that profession?

On one hand you appear to be a bot, asking variants of the same question on occasion ( search.php?author_id=28212&sr=posts ). On the other hand, I have no clue what that purpose would be since you don't seem to be advertising anything in your posts or profile, and it's not completely crazy that those questions are legitimate.

What gives man?

I still reckon adverts will come soon enough in the sig. Having legit and simple questions should generate some replies and the threads will be bumped/ stay in place for a while.

But as soon as links appear in the sig the user will deleted.

Being a Paladin IS the profession. You need nothing else.

I'd second the basketweaving, and add general maintenance.

Pimp and tailoring. That way you can make your own awesome hat and suit.

I thought it was LW that had the pimp hats (jungle hats from BC.)

My vote for 2 primary professions:

Ancient Mayan History and Morris Dancing.

Hmm - thought they'd added a cloth one somewhere.

OK: I stand corrected:

Pimp and Leatherworking.

Also, as a bonus, this would let you serve the S&M crowd without resorting to the AH.

Seconded...

If i add a "Save the gnome tanks discussion thread" sig to my signature, will i be consider a bot here also?
It's just that my guild considers me one.

S&M and Holy Paladins... not a connection I thought I'd ever make. Priests? Sure... they've even got their own tentacles...

And they have a discipline spec, though they sadly lost Masochism

Now, now - tentacles, while certainly appealing to a certain clientele, aren't necessarily part of S&M. Though the priests running around with blindfolded women bound to their shoulders does make one raise an eyebrow.

I was more thinking of untapped opportunities. New market expansions, really. Besides, someone needs to service the needs of the warlock community.

If it helps, they also have their own shackles (though that raises questions since they only work on undead...)

Hum...

Are you telling me that you think Priest are more into S&M that Palas?
Discipline tank CD is... Pain Suppression... That is NOT S&M...
On the other hand... (bold part is intended)
Palas can use "Hand of Sacrifice", can you imagine something more M&S???
And for the record now we can use it twice for twice the pain... :D

I can agree with Morris Dancing but feel you would get a better gain certainly at congregation level with 'conformance money gathering' or 'storytelling extreme' both of which stack well with the Holy profession above Mayan History.

Alternately if you want to go the other route I can definately suggest that 'CBH' and 'The Weather in Turkey' are 100% what you should be studying as professions in order to gain acceptance.

I hope that fully answers any questions you may have.

Gregory House.

I disagree, Pain Supression isn't a form of reducing the pain inflicted, it's when the sub focuses inward to find that pleasure center caused by the pain.

Mannstein wrote:Palas can use "Hand of Sacrifice", can you imagine something more M&S???

Sounds more "martyr" than S&M.

Also, for priests (branching into holy/shadow as well, so feel free to branch into prot/ret if you think it would help your case):
Shadow Word: Pain (pain through wordplay)
Chastise (punishment)
Fortitude (increased stamina to endure long sessions)
Void Tendrils (for keeping them right where you want them)
Psychic Horror (for really getting into their heads)

I'm sure there are more examples, but that'll do for now :).
