Hi everyone as some of you may know I am new to Rift and have been playing for about 3 hours so far and I managed to reach level 10 which I'm playing a Mage and I find the game very fun and interesting so far. Though I wanted to ask some questions relating to professions. How many professions are available to a player, like do you get to choose a main profession or 2 and then are able to choose secondary professions such as fishing, cooking, first aid, etc like you can do in wow. Also, what would be the best professions for a mage. Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I thank everyone who helps me out.

There are nice professions and they are:

Gathering Professions

obtains hides, bones and teeth from animal corpses. Butchers can produce leather from hides at a Loom.
Foraging: collects plants and wood logs, and manufactures planks and lumber from these logs at a Workbench.
Mining extracts ore from nodes. Miners can smelt the ore into bars at a Forge.
Crafting Professions

Crafting Professions
Apothecary: creates Flasks, Potions, Philters, Tonics, and Vials.
Armorsmithing: creates chain and plate armor, as well as shields.
Artificing: creates jewelry and caster weaponry.
Outfitting: creates cloth and leather items.
Runecrafting: creates runes, used to augment weapons and gear.
Weaponsmithing: creates melee and ranged weapons.

You can select up to 3 from the listed above, on my mage I went with all the gathering professions and just make money from selling the Mats.

Just go with what ever you want.
