All Cataclysm Profession Bonuses, Perks, & Benefits!

Before choosing any profession, it may help to have a look below at the different bonuses, perks, or benefits that the profession will provide. This can help you make a sound decision on which will help your character the most. All in all though the bonuses themselves will be very comparable. Instead, you may want to focus on the way each bonus is given or if the profession offers some sort of perk that can save you a lot of gold or time. Alchemy is a good example. If you are spec'd in a certain discipline like potions and your a raided who uses potions a lot, you may save some consider amount of gold from the procs. You'll also be able to make an iLvl359 trinket fairly cheap and easily. On top of that you'll get a flask that is NOT consumable which can be perfect for a farming or daily questing type player. In short, think about what you do in the game and consider which profession will benefit your character or characters the most.
