I finally finished the Blacksmithing guide 1-450. It was not that hard to level it, as you can see in the guide, the Reinforced Cobalt Chestpiece saves a lot of gold - let's hope Blizzard won't nerf it.
I had Mining aswell so I didn't have to buy any of the materials. This is why I suggested to level Mining and Blacksmithing at the same time. The Mining Guide is not updated yet, sorry for that. It's just so straightforward that I don't know yet what to write in the guide.
While I was leveling my Blacksmithing I disenchanted everything and I made a decent amount of gold, even if you buy the materials for Reinforced Cobalt Chestpiece, you still make profit.
I also updated the 250-300 part in the guide, some of the old recipes are taught by trainers now. Thanks for Brandon for pointing this out for me, I wouldn't notice it. I also thanks the help for Nebuchadneza and Greg.
Engineering Leveling Guide 1-450 is completed now. I am very disappointed with the leveling process. Blizzard seem to have put in cockblocks into every primary profession in WotLK. Engineering 435-450 is a joke, you are forced to make one single recipe because there is no other option.
At the moment there is only 2 epic recipes you can craft at 450. I feel like it was not worth to level my Engineering. The epic helm at 440 is nice, but for some of the classes - or maybe for all of them - the Naxxramas drops are better, and Naxxramas is not that hard at all.
So again, check out my Engineering Leveling Guide and tell me if you find mistakes or anything.
Blizzard's new expansion will start tomorrow, so I will have a lot of work to do.
Currently only the Inscription leveling guide is completed, the other ones are only last until 350. I removed the 350-375 part from almost all of them, because there will be new recipes in WotLK, as I mentioned it in a previous post.
I will try to upate every guide in the next couple of days weeks, I didn't want to use the data gathered from the BETA, so I will wait until the expansion start.
I would appreciate any help in the guides, please take notes if you can, what you crafted on different skill ranges etc. :)
I made this Inscription guide to explain the basics about this profession. Inscription is a new profession which was introduced in Wrath of the Lich King. Inscribers create Glyphs which are enhancements to an individual's spells or abilities, Inscribes can also make Scrolls and items you can equip in your off-hand.
Inscription use herbs as main materials. When you learn Inscription, you will get a skill called Milling, which you can use to produce pigments from herbs similar like prospecting for Jewelcrafters. You will need Pigments to make Inks, Inks are needed to create Glyphs.
As we are getting closer and closer to the lanuch of WotLK, some of you might wondering about changing professions, but you don't know yet which one to choose. With the release of Wrath of the Lich king, every profession will have a few profession only bonuses for level 80 players which are good for high end raiding and some of them for PvP, for example enchants and items that can only be equipped or used by yourself. Below you can find a list where I tried to gather the current profession bonuses you can get. If you see a + number after the items or enchants, it stands for whats the difference between the binds on pick up and the non bind on pick up items and enchants.
With Alchemy, you will be able to make Alchemist only trinkets like now in the BC, but the stats of the trinkets are changed.
Those who have Blacksmithing, they will be able to add a bonus socket to their Gloves and Bracers.
Engineers will have a lot of fun stuff too, most of them aren't good for anything besides fun.

That was all I could find. Post a comment if I left something out. All the information was gathered from wowhead.
If you are planning on to unlearn your profession and level another one to 375.
DON'T DO IT!
When WotLK will launch, most of the professions will have a lot of new recipes, and those recipes starts orange at 350. If you leveled any crafting profession to 375, you already know that leveling professions after 350 is realy expensive. After WotLK launch, you can level your professions a lot cheaper.
So, if you want unlearn your profession and level another one, I recommend you to level it only to 350, then wait until the expansion launch.
Inscription leveling guide update
Finaly I could copy my bank character to the BETA with 1200 Herbs, so I can update the guide in a couple of days.
Since now you can level inscription up to 450, I have updated the Inscription leveling guide. A lot of the recipes, materials, skill up ranges are still bugged or missing. However now you can at least know the list of materials that you should stock up before the expansion. Because I belive it won't change that much.
In the current beta, Burnt Pigment has not yet been found by milling herbs. Herbs in the 225 skill (which includes Dreamfoil) and 275 skill (Outland-only herbs) groups currently do not mill into pigments. You will still sometimes gain a bonus item. This bug probably prevents leveling to skill 400. Pigments in these 2 groups are shown based on information from the previous beta version.
WotLK Beta Build - 8905
- Inscription now has its Master and Grand Master - so it's up to 450.
