"How are professions more substantial in classic?"

Well. They are actually useful. There you go, that's how they are good in Vanilla Warcraft.

If it's one thing that I had a critical comment on profession is that it didn't had any woodworking. It could have been used for wands, staves and pre-30s shields. Could have done campfires, guild standards (much like the blade master of w3) and perhaps, even combined with leatherworking for saddles, or with blacksmithing for training dummies and a whole lot of other fun stuff. Was sad it didn't go that route.

I was dumb in vanilla, I thought I would supply other people so all I got was mining and skinning.
I did supply others but the low gold amounts ended up not really helping me make any at the end of the day it felt like.
Took soooo long to get my first mount and even longer for the epic one.

I was an engineer in vanilla. I remember that gagitzon teleport well. I died many a time with it. Engineers died alot of their profession in general.

Just a quick note for those looking to take up engineering, the repair bot is found just outside of the Grimm Guzzler "Sorry it's been a while" on the floor in a small room off of what looked like a torture chamber.

If I remember right, it's an open scroll on the floor just in front of a few named elites in that tiny room.

Hey, could you please recommend the best professions for the warrior tank? I heard the eng should be must (as most of BS things can be bought), so i guess as the other you need a mining so you actually got materials?
I know you could probably do with 2 crafting professions, but in classic thats a really huge gold sink and as having gather alt-char is almost a no go for me as a casual player, i would like to get the optimal profession on 1st go 🙂
Thanks

Fun fact… Gnomish Death Ray + Pally Bubble = Giant Nuke (sometimes) with no real down-side (unless you’re in a group in which case if you don’t kill it and you’re a tank, you can’t grab it because bubble removes all threat lolz)

Notice how much of a complaint everyone has with the over balancing? It's almost as though giving some classes advantages in some areas, and weaknesses in others, gives value…

I prefer unbalanced. That way your choices have an impact. If you want to pvp and willing to sacrifice moneymaking, you get this and it will give you an edge here, but you will lose in these other areas.
That's exactly how it should be.
