Blacksmithing is the best combined with Mining and I highly recommend to level Mining and Blacksmithing together because you will need a lot of gold if you want to buy everything from Auction House. It will take a lot of dedication to get to the end and get those epic items. Check out my Classic WoW Mining Leveling guide 1-300 if you want to level Mining.
