Okay for my hunter's profession I chose Alchemy/Herbalism. On my alt I chose Enchanting since I thought I could send a bow or something to get it enchante. I just recently (like 5 minutes ago) found out that enchanting has no ranged weapon enchants and engineering has some boosts for ranged weapons. Should I change the professions of my alt to mining/engineering so I can get some boosts and gizmos and gadgets? If it helps I didnt use enchanting much anyway and they are both Night Elves if that helps.
NO! 95% of the time engineering items require ENGINEERING to use them. Getting engineering to send stuff to your main would be an unwise decision.
So.. what would be the best profession should I choose for my hunter...? Whatif i will choose the Mining/engineering?:confused:
Engineering would be a fantastic profession for your hunter. Though I would not advise getting it on your alt as you said in your first post. What profession you will get is based on what you want to do. No one is better than another. Just.. Different.

Most of the bots are skinning hunters farming for dragonscales, so it seems some money can be made like this. I also heard that engineering is a good choice for hunters, but don't ask me because of which items (you'll have to check thottbot or a site like this).
A psychedelic experience.

I don't really think specific professions fit classes. Alch/Herb is a good profession; it's easy to do, makes decent money, and can be used by everyone, including you. I'd stick with it.
The scope that you're talking about for ranged weapons can only be made by engineers, but there's plenty around and you can easily buy one of the auction house for little money.
I don't spend enough time here

Most hunters only get engineering for the jumper cables. Being able to feign death and possibly rez a healer after a wipe is very useful.
ok by now... i will stick to my alcchemy/herbalism.....as of this moment i just dont know what should i choose but my first profession will be my decission now...but may ask...about weappons...which is better a 2-hand weapon or a dual wield?:)
Hunter, i would say two-hander. 9 times out of 10 you can do more up-front damage with your two-hander than your two dual wield will do. Keeping in mind of course the damage cut of your off-hand weapon.
ok..by the way thanks for all of the help guys....i have learned a lot from you...thanks for being helpful to me....i really appreciate it...;)
