If you are the dedicated wow player, then at some point you will pick up professions. Most players rarely know what professions to pick and end up sticking with them to the end or never getting past the high end materials they need to aquire as it takes time to level and can be hard to attain or expensive to buy out. Below are some good ideas on what professions to pick up strictly concerning the feral druid. You may or may not find them useful. It is completely at your discretion.

A brief recap on Professions. There are primary and secondary professions. For each character you have, you can only pick 2 primary professions & all the remaining secondary professions if you should wish. Also note that primary professions are broken into 2 main categories. Production and Gathering professions.

A brief recap on Professions. There are primary and secondary professions.

Primary Professions












Secondary Professions





OK OK wheres the juice at?, what should i pick!

For starters, it is important to know what statistics you're focusing on. Being a feral druid obviously your primary stats should be agility. If you're just starting out, Depending what spec you're leveling up in, Leather-working & skinning is a good professions to start out with. Since Druids and rogues can only wear up to the leather proficiency, you can craft gear to suit your attribute needs. It can also benefit you high end since you can make unique enchants ONLY for yourself & lesser ones you can sell on the auction house for a good amount of income. The materials needed for this though require you to skin A lot and are also expensive to attain.

So drop leather-working out of the question. with Thorough testing and experimenting with materials and farming time including scanning of the auction house. The best 2 Primary professions that benefit the druid the most would be Alchemy and Jewel-crafting. More will be explained further. For now lets focus why alchemy and jewel-crafting. Notice these 2 are Production professions. Although Alchemy is the easiest profession to level up. Jewel-crafting is not.


Alchemy is a wonderful and the most easiest profession to level up, it is also very fun. You can craft a mix of potions, elixirs, flasks, & lets you transmute certain items into other items. Also lets you create trinkets specialised only for your character at high end levels. Very profitable and make stable amounts of money. Not like enchanting and jewel-crafting that lets you make tons of money later at high end. Nevertheless, this profession will first help you buff your character in stats & lets you make money on the side with very little or no farming involved. You will also be the go-to person in your raiding guild or most popular friend when it comes down to flasks & potions. There is a trinket you can craft at high end that gives you very good stats specially for the talent tree you spec into. Especially if you're a feral cat. that trinket is called Quicksilver Alchemist Stone. Notice this particular trinket also has a red socket, working perfectly in conjunction with jewel-crafting. Giving you a huge boost in stats. Also if you're more pvp oriented, you can create aFlask of Enhancement which can be used inside of the arena. Your highest stat is always chosen. Which is good since your highest stat will be agility being a feral druid. Also this flask gives you +80 to your highest stat (agility), The same as Enchanting which gives you +40 per ring for 2 rings which gives you +80 agility. Alchemy is easier in this method. What happens when you replace your ring? acquiring the mats is still spending etc, whereas the flask you can use no matter what. Note it is wise and advisable to further specialize into the Transmutation master. You will make lots of money, be able to transmute gems to benefit jewel crafting & also Bars to sell at a huge profit for very cheaply acquiring the mats. Transmute mastery also gives you a chance on proc'ing your bars up to 5 bars for the single mat you use.

Jewel-Crafting Girl's best friend? or shiny things make me gaga?

At high end levels Jewel-crafting lets you create Specific unique gems which gives you a higher boost in stats that can be used only by your character, that cannot be sold, traded or bought of the auction house. This is the powerhouse of the jewelcrafter. Like every profession that gives you a unique only item of buff you can use being specialized into that profession. Jewel-crafting is by far the best apart from enchanting. It is fairly easier and cheaper than enchanting. Jewel crafting also has a daily quest giver in which you collect tokens to buy out recipes. Note you can use only 3 Unique gems. Delicate Chimera's Eye - 67 Agility (Jewelcrafter only gem). Using the Quicksilver Alchemist Stone. Also gives you a red Socket to put a gem in there if you wish. The only issue you will face is leveling up This profession. Unless you have a lot of gold, or an alternate character that farms the mats for you.

Getting it right the first time!

Remember since alchemy and jewelcrafting are both crafting professions. it will be hard to level both unless you are prepared to spend a lot, or farm on an alternate character of yours. There is a way to go about it though. It is better to pick up mining and herbalism, and farm the specific materials required for alchemy and jewelcrafting using good guides such as wow-professions or ten ton hammer or wow guide online. Or you can just pick up mining and jewelcrafting, when you finished leveling up jewel crafting, drop mining and pick up alchemy. You should have made lots of cash enough to level up alchemy next. Either way do jewel crafting first so you can get it out of the way.

Another optional Profession you can pick up is engineering, Which is more fun, weird, Crazy & more pvp oriented. If you like things that backfire or drive other people crazy or cool gadgets, bombs & trinkets. Then by all means pick up this profession. But take note, This profession you will hardly make anything of value to sell on the auction house. It is a only self beneficial profession. If you don't mind it. Then engineering would the profession if you like to really spice up your gameplay.

Enchanting and leather-working are also good professions, But in the long run, they can be quite tedious and will rarely make you use them. This guide is all about maximizing an output with minimum effort & further Enhancing your character!.

      I was never a good druid. I've always been a paladin or a rogue. I've always wanted to be a good druid, though.
