Should I drop mining or herbalism for blaksmithing on my Brewmaster?

#1Kanus_oq_SerunaPosted 4/16/2013 12:41:16 PM
So, while leveling, I tend to do mining/herbalism for easy xp and for auctionhouse fun. Now though, with some research, I've seen that Blacksmithing is very good for a brewmaster monk. So, I'm going to pick it up. However, I'm trying to decide if I want to keep the haste/heal perk of herbalism, or the stam/support of having mining with my blacksmithing. This is my highest character on the server its on though, not like my other server where I have all the profs covered.

Personally, I would keep mining so that whenever you do gathering you can choose to actually use the materials you get rather than selling them.

Yeah, and I can easily work tiller up to get golden lotus.

Engineering/Blacksmithing is the ideal set of professions for Brewmaster. If you're gonna drop something for Min/max, it would be mining. Stamina is a low value stat for us. If you're going for profession synergy, mining will be a nice money saver when leveling blacksmithing.

Correct on the Engi/BS - but that's the reason at this stage to KEEP mining (drop herb) so you can build up a huge stockpile of you've levelled up wither Engi or BS (would suggest Engi first), and then go nuts on the Ghost Iron and level BS up after you've dropped mining. Just don't forget to smelt it all first.

I've done the Engi/BS side by side grind for my Blood DK, nope, I will not do that again. I'll level another toon with mining before I pick up engineering on my monk.

Engineering, I think, is easier than Blacksmithing to level. Raising Blacksmithing on ghost iron, however, is sheer insanity. It's something like 9000 ore? So 255 stacks of bars? On my server that'd be around 30k.

While I can on a good day haul away 150 stacks in an hour around Vally of the four winds, I don't plan on relying on the CD.
