[h=2]Professions attached to rep.[/h]
A really key issue related to the rep is that your professions are attached at the hip with these reps, example: Tailoring you need honored with the Golden Lotus to make anything useful in PVE (chest and hand recipes and your proper caster leg enchant from Tailoring). Your 28 slot bag comes from the August Celestials at revered. Enchanting you can't trade in enchanting mats like the previous 2 expansions for your recipes, instead they are locked to the Shadow-Pan rep (Revered for your weapon enchant) and the August Celestials (Revered for your +170 main stat bracer enchant) This forces raiders to actually do 3-4 sets of dailies so that they can make use of their professions. Klaxxi has the Blacksmithing patterns hostage till revered, and I am positive there are others... To people saying that it is not mandatory for raiders you are wrong.
