Wondered if you guys have any opinions about this. I've put a shit ton of gold into Blacksmithing and it's currently at the Grand Master level. I've come to the conclusion that it's not worth levelling Blacksmithing until endgame (i.e. level 60 or close to). The reason being that most of the gear that you need while leveling can be purchased at the AH or acquired from enemies. I've also wasted numerous items through salvaging that I could have got decent money for on the AH, but didn't realise it at the time. Also, when you do craft an item you can't choose the exact statistics on it.|
The only saving grace is that apparently some of the best gear at 60 can only be made via blacksmithing. That on its own isn't enough for it to be worth investing in, in my opinion - at least not until you are actually in endgame.
