Question: Elementalist point of view for crafting?

Chef gives consumables, tailor gives light armor, leatherworker and armorsmith give armors you can't use, weaponsmith can only make one weapon you can use (dagger), huntsman doesn't make any weapons you can use.
You forgot artificer which makes casting weapons (scepter, staff, foci), and jeweler which makes rings and necklaces.
Personally, I would go select from artificer, jeweler, and tailor. Chef can be good put expensive.

Only two at one time. You can change between them, at a cost, but you don't lose progress when you change, you just pick up where you left off with that particular crafting profession.
Artificer and Tailor are the two I chose for my elementalist. I can make anything I need (provided I have them at a high enough level).
If you are a fan of dyes, chef can make them. So there is a plus to cooking. However, they are pretty costly, and they are only unidentified dyes.

Artificer & Tailor can provide you with weapons & armor early on (and of course Tailor can make bags for expanding the inventory. Artificers can also make potions that give you a boost to damage vs. specific foes (but they kind of fill your inventory like other consumables). Jewellery does not drop from monsters (you need to get it as story line rewards & from heart/karma vendors).
Cooks can make food & drink with pretty good bonuses. The dyes they can make require quite a few ingredients, so it is nothing for early levels.
Don't take professions now you can't make items you can not use (Leather worker, Armor smith etc.)

Some might find it better to just refine exactly what you need/a minimum amount once you no longer get the experience and selling/trading any excess over the banks 250 items. This works since you could still be getting experience from making from recipes using the refined materials or using them in discovery.

1) Those crafting professions do not compete for types of crafting materials.
2) I thought I was doing a good job of gathering from every node I saw and made a point of going to every part of the maps. I also did not avoid any fights (for material drops and salvage) I thought I could manage.
3) I had no problem with getting the refinable materials, which for tailoring came from salvaging. My problem was lack of monster drop materials, particularly in tailoring.
Of course without the trading post it was a little more expensive, since I couldn't sell what I made and had to salvage the made stuff. To offset that I also could not buy the raw materials I had not got.
In any case I feel that your advice is very sound for a beginning elementalist (I am starting with a necromancer) crafter.
