Herbs or Jewels?

jewelcrafting.jpgI’m a crappy gatherer. My ‘lock is a tailor/enchanter and does pretty well at each. My priest on the other hand a lvl 300 Alchemist but only 120-something in Herbalism. Previously I’ve also attempted and dropped mining and skinning. I just kind of hate the running around. Now, since I’ve gotten a few socketed items, Jewelcrafting is sparking my interest. Plus this gem guide I found on wowinsider has already helped me with a wish list. I think I’m going to bail on the herbalism on move on to the gem stones and see how that works. I make most of my cash playing the Auction House so it’s not really going to change my income. Anyone else picked up jewelcrafting, have any advice or experience to share?

    I took up Jewelcrafting when I rolled my Draenai – it’s been an overall satisfying experience. I thought I would post about it, but since I’m only at a 75/300 on the skill, I don’t think I know enough about it yet.

    But, at that level at least, I’ve noticed that a) rings and necklaces are available at lower levels b) they’re much more plentiful, with so many people grinding up their skill levels c) Prospecting (destroying 5 units of ore for a random gemstone) is addictive d) ore lots are mega-expensive on the AH now and are frequently sold in units of 5 e) socketed items should be available at lower levels.

    Jewelcrafting without mining is expensive. Add engineering and I’m a poor poor man. I’m not sure my Auctioneering will keep up.

    Jewelcrafting is fun though, decent Jewelery and the gems post 300 are fun. It helps to have a good guild funneling you gems for skillups.
