WoW Tailoring Leveling Guide 1 - 700

This Tailoring leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to get your Tailoring skill up from 1 to 700. Updated for Warlords of Draenor patch 6.0.3

Tailoring is good combined with Enchanting because you will be able to disenchant most items you craft while leveling, but you can combine it with any other gathering profession. Check out my Enchanting leveling guide if you want to level Enchanting.

You will need thousands of cloths to level Tailoring, and it will cost a lot of gold to buy everything.

If you are low on gold, I recommend you to try this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make loads of gold.

If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend you to use a leveling guide. You can level your character to level 100 in 8 days with this guide.

Keep in mind, this Tailoring guide is made to level your profession as fast as possible, so sometimes the cloths you will make might not be the best items for your level or they won't be really profitable if you want to sell them.

    You can also make [Frostweav Bag] instead of these. It will cost you a lot more gold to level with the bags, but when you sell all of them at the Auction House, you will get most of your gold back. You will need to make more Bolt of Imbued Frostweave if you level with bags.

    You will get 5 skill points for each bag. You can also make two [Otherworldly Bag] instead of the Embersilk Bags, but it is usually harder to sell.

  • 550 - 555
    1 x [Imperial Silk] - 8 Bolt of Windwool Cloth

    You can craft this item if you visit The Silken Fields at the center of Valley of the Four Winds. This is a level 86 zone but you can easily go there at Level 85. The Silken Fields are south-east from Halfhill.

  • 555 - 600
    9 x [The recipe you discovered from making Imperial Silk] - 36-54 Bolt of Windwool Cloth

    Every recipe that you can discover will grant you 5 skill points, but the number of cloths required to make them is different. If you didn't discover a Dreadful Gladiator PvP item recipe, but an epic item recipe, you will have to make another Imperial Cloth the next day, or until you discover a pvp item recipe.


600 - 700

Things change a bit in Warlords of Draenor, because you no longer learn the next rank from your trainer. You have to kill mobs from Draenor and loot [Cryptic Tome of Tailoring] (Alliance) or [ Frostwolf Tailoring Kit] (Horde), then complete a small quest chain.

After you completed the quest chain, you will get [Draenor Tailoring] and [Garrison Blueprint: Tailoring Emporium, Level 1]. This scroll upgrades your maximum Tailoring skill to 700 and you will also learn a few basic recipes. The blueprint simply let's you build a Tailoring Emporium at your garrison. You will use this building to complete work orders and to learn every new recipe.

Work Orders

Work orders convert 5 x [Sumptuous Fur] to 1 x [Hexweave Cloth], or 2 if you have a follower in your building. You can read more about followers if you read my Guide to Followers with Profession Traits. One work order takes 4 hour to complete, but you can queue up a bunch of work orders, so you don't have to log in every 4 hours.

What you need to know is that every recipe require [Hexweave Cloth]. And as you can see, [Hexweave Cloth] is BoP, so you can't buy them from the Auction House. You have to complete work orders, and you also have to make your daily profession cooldown [Hexweave Cloth] every day.

How many [Hexweave Cloth] can you get a day?

  • Work orders: You can complete 6 work orders each day, so that's 6 [Hexweave Cloth] one day, or 12 if you have a level 100 follower.
  • Profession daily cooldown: With profession skill 600, you get 5. This will increase as you level up your profession, the maximum you can get is 10 at skill 700.

Obtaining new recipes

The recipes your learned from the scroll are only good for leveling between 1-600. You have to purchase new recipe at your Tailoring Emporium to level up to 700.

When you use [Draenor Tailoring], you will learn [Secrets of Draenor Tailoring]. This recipe is needed to create the currency that you can use to buy new recipes, but you can only make one from this currency each day.

Leveling 600-700

Create [Secrets of Draenor Tailoring] and use it to buy recipes at Tailoring Emporium.

So, which recipe to buy? Well, it's really up to you because every single recipe is really expensive. You should make items that you will use or sell.

If you want to reach 700 as fast as possible, you have to make a recipe that will use the fewest [Hexweave Cloth]. This recipe is [Hexweave Embroidery].

Using Hexweave Embroidery as an example, you will get 3 skill point for crafting one and it costs 10 x [Hexweave Cloth], 10 x [Sumptuous Fur]. You will need to make around 22 of them to reach 700. It's only 22 and not 33 because you will get a few skill points for making your profession cooldown, and Secret of Draenor Tailoring every day.

This will take around 20 days, and it's the cheapest way to reach 700. I assumed you have a level 90 follower, so if you have a level 100 follower, it will take fewer days. (around 14)

You can reach 700 by making only your profession cooldwon and Secret of Draenor Tailoring, but that would probably take around 60-70 days.

Armors like [Hexweave Bracers] require 100 Hexweave Cloth and you get 10 skill point for making them. If you only make the armors it would take around 50 day to reach 700, and it would cost you more than twice as much.

I hope you liked this Tailoring guide, congratulations to 700!

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.
