If you still haven't decided about your second profession, I think Enchanting goes well with Tailoring because you don't need a gathering profession to support either of them, and you can also use Enchanting to disenchant the items you made with Tailoring. Check out my Classic Tailoring leveling guide if you want to level Tailoring.
I recommend using Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game, all the detail that you need to complete the quests are 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.

Playing Burning Crusade Classic?
The guide you are currently reading is for Classic Era realms. Use my TBC Enchanting leveling guide 1-375 instead. There are a few changes to trainers and recipes, so you should use the Burning Crusade guide for the 1-300 part.

Leveling Classic Enchanting - (1 - 50)
1 x Runed Copper Rod - 1 Copper Rod, 1 Strange Dust, 1 Lesser Magic Essence
Copper Rod is sold by Trade Goods, Trade Supplies, and Enchanting Supplies vendors. They are usually near your trainer, so don't buy it from the Auction House.
Disenchant green quality items or make the following:
48 x Enchant Bracer: Minor Health - 48 Strange Dust
Enchanting Journeyman - (50 - 135)
You can only train Enchanting past 75 if you learn Journeyman Enchanting. Not every Enchanting trainer will teach you this skill, you have to find an Expert Enchanter. (Requires level 10)
You can learn Journeyman Enchanting from these NPCs below:
- Gimble Thistlefuzz in Ironforge.
- Lucan Cordell in Stormwind City.
- Taladan in Darnassus.
- Xylinnia Starshine in Feralas.
40 x Enchant Bracer: Minor Health - 40 Strange Dust
If Strange Dust is cheap and Greater Magic Essence is expensive on your realm, you can make this Enchant up to 120.
10 x Enchant Bracer: Minor Stamina - 30 Strange Dust
1 x Runed Silver Rod - 1 Silver Rod, 6 Strange Dust, 3 Greater Magic Essence, 1 Shadowgem
9 x Greater Magic Wand - 9 Simple Wood, 9 Greater Magic Essence
These are limited supply recipes. If someone bought them before you, then you have to wait for it to respawn. I'm not sure about the exact respawn timer, but it's between 30-50 min.
25 x Enchant Cloak: Minor Agility - 25 Lesser Astral Essence
Make the recipe below if Astral essence is expensive on your realm and you can find cheap Small Glimmering Shards.
28 x Enchant 2H Weapon - Minor Impact - 112 Strange Dust, 28 Small Glimmering Shard
Enchanting Expert - (135 - 225)
To become an Expert Enchanter you need to reach level 20 and level up Enchanting to 125, then find an Expert Enchanting trainer.
There is only one Expert Enchanting trainer for each faction. Kitta Firewind in Elwynn Forest is the Alliance trainer. She is at the top level of the Tower of Azora.
Hgarth in Stonetalon Mountains at Sun Rock Retreat is the Horde trainer. He is up on the hill, there's a steep path that leads up behind Tammra Windfield. It's not easily noticeable.
20 x Enchant Bracer - Lesser Stamina - 40 Soul Dust
1 x Runed Golden Rod - 1 Golden Rod, 1 Iridescent Pearl, 2 Greater Astral Essence, 2 Soul Dust
40 x Enchant Bracer - Lesser Strength - 80 Soul Dust
Check the "110-135" step for recipe location.
This one turns yellow at 165, however, if 2 Soul Dust is a lot cheaper than 1 Lesser Mystic Essence, keep making these until 185.
If it's not then at 165 switch to:
20 x Enchant Bracer: Spirit - 20 Lesser Mystic Essence
15 x Enchant Bracer: Strength - 15 Vision Dust
1 x Runed Truesilver Rod - 1 Truesilver Rod, 1 Black Pearl, 2 Greater Mystic Essence, 2 Vision Dust
25 x Enchant Bracer: Strength - 25 Vision Dust
The enchant will be yellow, so you should buy enough dust to make it around 25 times.
5 x Enchant Cloak: Greater Defense - 15 Vision Dust
Enchanting Artisan - (225 - 300)
To become an Artisan Enchanter you need to reach level 35 and level up Enchanting to 200, then find an Artisan Enchanting trainer.
How to find the Artisan Enchanting trainer
You can find Annora the Artisan Enchanting trainer in Uldaman. She is the only trainer that can teach you Artisan Enchanting.
There are a couple of recipes that only Annora can teach you, so you should bring enough gold to learn every recipe and enough enchanting materials to reach Enchanting 250. Else you would have to go back to Uldaman again for the higher-level recipes.
Annora teaches these skills:
- Artisan Enchanting - 5g
- Enchant Chest - Superior Mana (230) - 54s
- Enchant Shield - Greater Spirit (230) - 54s
- Enchant Boots - Agility (235) - 58s
- Enchant 2H Weapon - Greater Impact (240) - 62s
- Enchant Bracer - Greater Strength (240) - 62s
- Enchant Chest - Stats (245) 62s
- Enchant Weapon - Greater Striking (245) - 62s
- Enchant Gloves - Minor Haste (250) - 65s
- Enchant Leather (250) - 1g
- Enchant Thorium (250) - 1g
In total, you will need 11.79 Gold to learn everything from Annora, and around 200 Vision Dust should get you to Enchanting 250.
How to enter Uldaman
The Uldaman instance is located in Badlands. It has two entrances, you should enter from the back entrance.
You can't solo Uldaman at level 35, so you either have to go there with a party or ask a level 60 to help you out.
Annora's location inside Uldaman
Annora will only spawn once you kill every mob in the area she is in!
5 x Enchant Gloves: Agility - 5 Lesser Nether Essence, 5 Vision Dust
Make Enchant Cloak: Greater Defense, if you don't have Lesser Nether Essence.
5 x Enchant Boots - Stamina - 25 Vision Dust
25 x Enchant Chest: Superior Health - 150 Vision Dust
Don't forget to learn everything from Annora before you leave Uldaman!
Try to hunt for Formula: Enchant Bracer - Greater Stamina at the Auction House. It's a random world drop, but this recipe is the best to level Enchanting from 245 to 265 or even 285.
20 x Lesser Mana Oil - 60 Dream Dust, 40 Purple Lotus, 20 Crystal Vial
You can make this one up to 270 if you can get cheap purple lotus.
30 x Enchant Shield: Greater Stamina - 300 Dream Dust
IMPORTANT! The recipe binds when picked up! Don't make the mistake of trying to buy it with an alt and mail it. It's also limited in supply, this means you have to wait if someone bought it before you.
1 x Runed Arcanite Rod - 1 Arcanite Rod, 1 Golden Pearl, 10 Illusion Dust, 4 Greater Eternal Essence, 4 Small Brilliant Shard, 2 Large Brilliant Shard
5 x Enchant Cloak: Superior Defense - 40 Illusion Dust
You can continue to make Enchant Shield: Greater Stamina if you have a lot of dream dust, or Illusion Dust is really expensive.
I hope you liked this Classic WoW Enchanting leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 300!
