..surplus items, the result of professional skill raising?
I've only been playing since begining of Jan and the clouds of awe are
starting to dissapate, leaving a film of baffled wonder...
I've raised a dwarf hunter to lvl 32, with skinning and leatherwork, a
gnome warlock to 16, with mining and engineering, and a forsaken mage to
16 with enchanting and tailoring. Up until now I've only been
occasionally using their chosen professions when I remembered to, or had
the opportunity and it's only just recently I've come to realise the
benefits of getting their skill levels up.. to do this one obvioulsy has
to make lots of stuff.. So, whats the secret? Different things are
different colours.. do I have to make a certain amount of items of
certain colours? Do I miss out on a skill level if I don't make a
certain something? And to get to my original question... wtf do I do
with everything I make? Do I just vendor it straight away and go on to
the next one or do I sell it at the auction house?
Oh and one more thing...where can I join WoW Players Anonymous? This
game is seriously life changing. I am an addict. Help. :)

Just a little tip, wait leveling enchanting till you can start soloing
instances by yourself.
Enchanting is the biggest money drain in the game, because you will
need to level it up at a lot of recipes no one want to pay for. Thus
you have to look at it as an investment for later (though most people
make the money by selling the disenchant results). - Before the first
expansion, we used to advice people not to try level enchanting too
much, before they were level 50+, because you won't be that fast
cleaning the low level instances till then, though it can be done.
No offence, but I think some people worry too much instead of just
playing the game. My advice regarding professions is to pick your
professions ASAP (so you can start getting a benefit from them) and
stick with them (1), not to worry about how fast you're levelling, just
go with the flow and level as you're able to from the resources that
drop while you quest.
(1) so choose sensibly - i.e. if your profession greatly benefits from a
certain gathering profession to supply raw materials, then make sure you
get both! e.g. herbalism with alchemy or inscription, mining with
engineering or blacksmithing or jewelcrafting, tailoring with enchanting
(though not as essential a combination as the previous examples).
IME you'll get plenty of benefit from tailoring and enchanting just
leveling as you're able to, without wasting huge amounts of money you
won't have early on at the AH.
If leveling your professions is going slow or stalled once you're high
level you'll _then_ have the cash to speed level it by buying mats
through the AH. But really unless you skip large parts of the game and
just power level your character, IME you'll have plenty of mats dropping
to level with as you quest.
So don't fret. Just make what's useful for yourself and what sells well
on the AH - to know that get the Auctioneer addon. I've hardly ever had
to use recipes that provide useless (in terms of utility or trade) items
to level my professions, and anyone doing so frequently is IMO a little
too obsessed with power-levelling their profession rather than playing
the game and enjoying it.
Trust me - just take it easy and have fun :-) All you need to know is
orange recipes give a skill point ALL of the time, yellow MOST of the
time, and green only occasionally. Grey gives no skill point. You don't
have to make everything - just enough orange, yellow and green items to
skillup each at each level. It's totally up to you what you make, but as
I've said - don't make the mistake of making items that are useless to
you or won't sell on the AH. Get Auctioneer! :-)
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
