Eventually I'm going to buy Legion, and it comes with a level 100 boost.
Leveling a character to level 60 gives you a boost in your professions in addition to all the other bonuses for boosting to level 100.
With the release of Warlords of Draenor, professions seem to be rather easy to boost on their own, you can craft Draenor related items to boost a new profession fairly quickly using just the auction house and some gold (apart from Mining, Herbing, and Skinning).
So since professions can be "bought" with gold in this way now, I was wondering if it is mathematically worth leveling a character up to 60?
Leveling costs X hours of leveling, Y hours of profession making, and Z gold.
- Boosting from level 60, Y = 0 hours and Z = 0 gold because you don't need to use any money or time on professions, but you need to use time to level
- Boosting from level 1, X = 0 hours because you don't need to spend any time leveling.
I was wondering, how much time (on average) would you need to spend to get to level 60, and
how much time would you need to spend (at level 100) to make the amount of gold needed to "purchase" your professions (again on average).
