I am an engineer, but I find that I hardly use mining anymore, and it seems to have lost its usefulness.

Does anyone have an opinion on whether or not I should switch to skinning?  Here are the reasons why I think it might be a good idea:

There are a lot of NR items that require various sithilid parts gotten from skinning which are otherwise expensive to buy

I want to get Black Dragonscale Boots to complete my FR kit, which require quite a few black dragonscales, also gotten from skinning

Leather is realatively easy to farm and its a good money maker (still need to get that epic mount)

Any opinions? Huh

Looking ahead to the expansion, I've decided to drop Engineering (which I rarely use at all) and pick up Jewelcrafting. As far as I can tell, the components for Jewelcrafting will be "sifted" from ore, so I'm not only planning to keep Mining, but am already stockpiling stacks of raw ore of various types so I can (hopefully) powerlevel Jewelcrafting very quickly. 

SO, if you think you might want to do that, you might want to keep mining. Smiley 

Otherwise, I'd think you could make enough money as a Skinner to buy the components you need for Engineering anyway, plus extra.  Skinning is easy to level, esp. if you find the places where folks leave lots of dead bodies lying around (the Excavation site in Wetlands is a good one). 

If you're mainly doing this to complete an FR Kit, though, you might not want to bother. You'll find good FR stuff in MC which may be better than the stuff you want to make.

I was planning on making a Dranei Paladin Miner/Jewelcrafter anyway, so this toon will always stay engineering  Cheesy
