WotLK Profession Bonuses

As we are getting closer and closer to the launch of WotLK, some of you might be 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.
