I cannot stress how important max Professions are to raiders!
Not having your professions maxed out is a dps/stat loss and when we are working on progression even an extra few thousand DPS/HP/haste/Crit ext matters a lot.Yes i know your already saying "shut up Syb,there's more to the game than lvling them" and yes i know its boring too!
But come on now guys/girls every little extra thing we can do to improve our class is important.
If anyone needs help with mats we are all willing to help and i do know a lot of us have mats hidden away in our banks long forgotten :P
Remember everyone wants to be top of recount! and having that extra buff could be the answer between 1st and 2nd place!
So if you are slacking in this area get to it there isn't really any excuse available for them not being maxed out.
PS: Most raiding guilds won't accept new raiders without maxed prof and that's including cooking too!
