There are twenty-two professions active in the game of Dofus. They are separated into two different categories, Gathering Professions and Crafting Professions. The Crafting Professions are further separated into three categories; Food Producers, Equipment Producers, and Weapon Producers. Weapon Producers are separated yet again into Ore Based Weapons and Wood Based Weapons for this Guide to Professions. Eleven of these professions have the ability to become a dual profession by having a Magus specialization to it.
Many different guides can be found for each profession on the Dofus Official Forums, the Dofus Wiki, and on several of the Dofus Fan Sites; like this one. After reading a lot of the different guides, looking at the Wiki, and leveling a good majority of the professions myself; I am sitting down to write a comprehensive guide to them all. The basis of this guide is to share knowledge and give advice on Kama generation throughout the leveling of a profession. As a multi-clienter, all my professions are mixed up and across several different accounts. Bearing this in mind; we will discuss partnerships between the different professions as well.
Each character can only get three professions. Choosing them is not always an easy task. Some professions are tied to another; so having both is quite helpful as they have a great deal of synergy. Sometimes you will find that you picked a profession that is too hard for you to manage; I realize that not everyone can drag themselves through leveling a Tailor, Shoemaker, and Jeweler on the same character. The best advice that I can give you, the reader, is to study the profession before picking it; look at some of the recipes throughout the entire gamut of the profession, and see which one fits you best.
Now onto the professions themselves:
Alchemist: makes potions for energy restoration, hit point restoration, and for revival of the dead.
Farmer: gathers different cereals and can turn them into flours.
Fisherman: sits on the docks and tries to catch fish.
Hunter: gathers meats from various monsters you kill.
Lumberjack: chops trees for a living.
Miner: mines ores for a living.
Baker: makes breads for hit point regeneration.
Butcher: makes edible meats for hit point regeneration.
Fishmonger: makes edible meats for hit point regeneration.
Jeweler: makes rings and amulets for players to wear.
Shoemaker: makes shoes and belts for players to wear.
Tailor: makes hats, capes, and backpacks for players to wear.
Handyman: makes breeding items and dungeon keys for players.
Wood Based Weapons:
Bow Carver: make archery weapons for players.
Staff Carver: makes staff weapons for players.
Wand Carver: makes wand weapons for players.
Ore Based Weapons:
Axe Smith: makes axe weapons for players.
Dagger Smith: makes dagger weapons for players.
Hammer Smith: makes hammer weapons for players.
Shovel Smith: makes shovel weapons for players.

Jewel Magus: tied to the Jeweler profession, improves rings and amulets.

Quick Note: There are 2 types of equipment in the game. The Craftable and the Ethereal. Bear in mind that if you want to increase a particular stat, or change a weapons damage from neutral to another element; you want the corresponding magus profession. If you want to repair the durability of an ethereal weapon, you will need the smith or carver corresponding to the weapon in question.
A lot of this guide is personal experience and researching the Dofus Wiki. I can only offer the reader my opinion on how to go about leveling a profession. What works for me may not work for you. Server size and economy also comes into play and can influence how a player goes about leveling a given profession. Bear in mind that what I suggest is just that, a suggestion on how to proceed.
Without further ado, let's get down to the actual professions, and their respective leveling guides.
EDIT NOTICE: When compiling all the information for the guides, it wasn't intentional on my part to have such a long post with all the information on it. I did want to have them in separate posts, but even when manually clicking to add a reply didn't work; I just went with it. I have to apologize upfront, but to make decent use of this guide (until Brakmarian Rose gets it coded), people will have to use the FIND command which is CTRL + F, which will bring up something on your browser (each browser is different folks) which will let you type in a word and look for that word. I suggest using it until you find the bolded instance of the word. Thank you for your understanding. I will add a reply and a link when my guild website has it coded and finalized. 'Till then readers, enjoy the guides.
Second Edit Notice: It has finally been added to my guild's website. Due to the nature of this forum, anyone attempting to follow my link will be redirected to a confirmation page asking if they really want to go to my guild site. I can guarantee that my guild site is not a phising site, and even MOD Rhakuna says she likes the layout. The Professions have been made easier to read and a lot easier to locate each different profession, as it is only a wall of text here; no matter how informative. Without further delays; Click here
