Mining Leveling Guide - Smelting 1 - 600

This Mining Leveling Guide will help you to level Mining a lot faster by using the ability called Smelting, you get this ability when you learn Mining.

My original Mining leveling guide shows you a lot slower way to level mining, but that way will cost you nothing. This Mining guide will be a lot more expensive, but it really depends on your realm economy. Most of the time if you sell all the bars you made you will make all of your gold back.

Most of the these smelting recipes will be yellow or green, that is why I cannot list the exact number of ores that you will need, it's different for every person and mainly based on luck.

The numbers below are just approximate numbers!

  • 70 x Copper Ore
  • 70 x Tin Ore
  • 10 x Silver Ore
  • 40 x Iron Ore
  • 15 x Gold Ore
  • 55 x Mithril Ore
  • 15 x Truesilver Ore
  • 130 x Thorium Ore
  • 220 x Fel Iron Ore
  • 120 x Adamantite Ore
  • 60 x Cobalt Ore
  • 100 x Saronite Ore
  • 240 x Obsidium Ore
  • 200 x Elementium Ore
  • 70 x Ghost Irone Ore


Smelting Guide 1 - 70

  • 1 - 50

    Smelt 70 x [Copper Ore]. Don't sell these yet, you will need them.

  • 50 - 70

    Smelt 70 x [Tin Ore].

    Save the bars because you will need them to make [Bronze Bars]. You can still go to the next step even if you did not reach 70.


70 - 150

Visit your trainer and learn Mining Journeyman.

  • 70 - 90

    Smelt 70 x [Bronze Bars].

    Don't worry if you didn't reach 90, you can still continue with the next step but you will need a bit more Silver Ore.

  • 90 - 100

    Smelt 10 x [Silver Ore].

    This part can be really expensive, I recommend you to mine some Tin Ore instead of smelting Silver. My Tin Ore farming guide can help you to locate the best zones for farming Tin.

    If there is no Silver Ore at the Auction House, you have to smelt more Bronze Bars up to 100.

  • 135 - 150
    Smelt 15 x [Gold Ore].

    If you don't have Gold Ore you will have to smelt more Iron Ore, or visit my Iron Ore farming guide and mine Iron until you reach 150.


150 - 200

Visit your trainer and learn Mining Expert.

  • 150 - 185
    Smelt 55 x [Mithril Ore].

    If you can buy 25 [Truesilver Ore] at the Auction House then you could stop smelting Mithril at 175 and jump to the next part. So, this party really depends on how many Truesilver you can buy and of course how expensive it is to buy them.

    I recommend you to stop smelting Mithril at 185 because you will gain skill-ups a lot less frequently.


200 - 275

Visit your trainer and learn Mining Artisan.

  • 200 - 275

    Smelt 130 x [Thorium Ore].

    Between 250 and 270 you could also make a few [Enchanted Thorium Bar]. I just don't like to make these items because they don't sell really well.


275 - 375

Visit your trainer and learn Mining Master.

  • 340 - 350
    Sorry, no smelting recipe for this part. You will have to mine a few ores! Go to Outland and mine a few Adamantite Ore.


375 - 600

Visit your trainer and learn Mining Grand Master.

  • 375 - 400
    Visit my mining leveling guide to mine some Cobalt and Saronite because there is nothing that you can smelt at this skill range.

Learn Illustrious Grand Master Mining.

Learn Zen Mining.

That's it. You cannot level further with smelting. Visit my mining leveling guide or my Ghost Iron Ore farming guide and mine some Ghost Irone Ore! I hope you liked this smelting guide!

WoW Leveling Guide 1-90 Do you want to reach level 90 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in an small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
