Cataclysm Classic Tailoring Leveling Guide 1-525

This Cataclysm Classic Tailoring leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way to get your Tailoring skill up from 1 to 525 in Cataclysm Classic.

I recommend trying Zygor's 1-85 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide will help you to reach level 85 a lot faster.

Leveling Cataclysm Classic Tailoring

1 - 75

You will need around 59x Coarse Thread for the 1-75 part. You can buy them from the Tailoring Supplies vendor near your trainer. When buying from the vendor, use SHIFT + MOUSE CLICK, then type in how many you want. (the maximum amount you can buy at once is 20 for threads and 10 for dyes)

I don't recommend buying all the dyes and thread at once because it will fill up your inventory and you won't have that much bag space to craft items. I'll list the needed Dyes and Thread for each part separately.

    Stop making these if you reach 45 and only make more if you need them.
