After reading that huge AH guide about resale, arbitrage, the undermine journal, etc, I am still a huge noob when it comes to gold making and the AH hasn't treated me very nicely. I am turning to professions to start off before I use AH manipulation to get a fortune, however, I'm not sure what would be the most lucrative profession. Currently I have mining and flask master maxed and I am planning on dropping mining for another crafting profession. Alchemy hasn't been too profitable for me either. I tried to buy mats for a relatively low price last monday, and get profit through procs and selling flasks on tuesday, but I only gained about 1k total in profit.
Right now I have ~6.5k to start off and I would like to know what profession I should take up.
