Eregar over at www.wow-ni.com has written an article about the changes to the trade skills to professions and how they now work.
Please note that although I am covering Skinning and Leatherworking, the mechanics of all trade skills work in a similar way but with different materials obviously, a tailor needs cloth dropped by creatures and a smith needs ore found around the world map.
You may remember that during the Stress Test I wrote a little article on trade skills and how useless they were for your level. This was because the items you could make (with the skill points required), were that of much lower levels than yourself.
Check out the complete article here.
