I would like to know what the bonuses are for the professions in WoW. For example, the gems with extra large stats that only the Jewelcrafter himself can use, or the bonus sockets you can put on your own gear as a Blacksmith. What are the bonuses for the other professions?

    Might want to add that engineering has the Goblin Glider on your cloak and Nitro Boosts on your belt. Honorable mention: resurrection.

  • It should be noticed that these values scale in one form or another and that this list is incomplete; it is only valid for level 90, artisian-level characters. For example, gathering professions scale with your gathering profession level, whereas item-based bonuses scale based on which item you craft (as a result of your profession and character level).

  • ^ Absolutely ^ you will not have +480 stamina on a lvl 20 pally with lvl 14 mining, but this answer was already very long, so i game him the endgame +/-, which is when the professions become relevant for stats and not just crafting purposes.
