Tailoring

JC seems to be the best, with 60 SP and the twilight serpent trinket (bis even with 2 blue quality gems, especially since one of them is blue colored, and we need 2 for the meta.

EJ says the best prof for caster DPS is tailoring due to Lightweave Embroidery and I have this porf. However with the blue gear requirements, other professions seems to be interesting too, like inscription for the much stronger shoulder enchant and that you don't have to quest for Hodir (though those quests are really nice).

Alchemy also seems tempting, not only because of mixology but it has a good trinket (other good trinkets are instance drops, good luck getting them) and it has the bonus of +40% effect from potions, giving more health and mana (caster with 0 mana = wand) and in our Blue Ulduar run there was a long queue begging for innervate. So - unlike in 245 - don't ignore mana regen talents and gear.

Engineering also have a +27 spellpower enchant for cloak, which might or might not be preferred over the haste enchant.

Also the "grind" for getting revered with Sons of Hodir is down to doing the prequests, doing the dailies one day, and delivering 2x 10 Relics of Ulduar. I got to revered the first day I started questing for them, so it's not much of a grind anymore.
