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 trying Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or just starting a new alt. It will help you to reach level 60 a lot faster.

Playing WotLK Classic?
Use my WotLK Enchanting leveling Guide instead. There are a few changes to trainers and recipes, so you should use the WotLK guide for the 1-375 part.
Classic Enchanting Trainer Location
To become an Apprentice Enchanter you need to reach level 5 and find an Enchanting trainer.
Just click on any of these links below to see the trainer's exact location. You can also walk up to a guard in any city and ask where the Enchanting trainer is, then it will be marked with a red flag on your map
Leveling Classic Enchanting
1 - 50
1x 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:
48x Enchant Bracer: Minor Health - 48 Strange Dust
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:
50 - 110
40x 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.
10x Enchant Bracer: Minor Stamina - 30 Strange Dust
1x Runed Silver Rod - 1 Silver Rod, 6 Strange Dust, 3 Greater Magic Essence, 1 Shadowgem
9x Greater Magic Wand - 9 Simple Wood, 9 Greater Magic Essence
110 - 135
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.
25x 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.
28x Enchant 2H Weapon - Minor Impact - 112 Strange Dust, 28 Small Glimmering Shard
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 to him. It's not easily noticeable.
135 - 156
20x Enchant Bracer - Lesser Stamina - 40 Soul Dust
1x Runed Golden Rod - 1 Golden Rod, 1 Iridescent Pearl, 2 Greater Astral Essence, 2 Soul Dust
156 - 185
40x Enchant Bracer - Lesser Strength - 80 Soul Dust
Check the "110-135" step for recipe location.
If 1x Lesser Mystic Essence is a lot cheaper than 2x Soul Dust then you can switch to this recipe at 165:
20x Enchant Bracer: Spirit - 20 Lesser Mystic Essence
185 - 225
15x Enchant Bracer: Strength - 15 Vision Dust
1x Runed Truesilver Rod - 1 Truesilver Rod, 1 Black Pearl, 2 Greater Mystic Essence, 2 Vision Dust
35x Enchant Bracer: Strength - 35 Vision Dust
The enchant will be yellow, so you should buy enough dust to make it around 30-35 times.
5x Enchant Cloak: Greater Defense - 15 Vision Dust
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.
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!
225 - 250
5x Enchant Gloves: Agility - 5 Lesser Nether Essence, 5 Vision Dust
Make Enchant Cloak: Greater Defense, if you don't have Lesser Nether Essence.
5x Enchant Boots - Stamina - 25 Vision Dust
25x 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.
250 - 265
20x 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.
265 - 294
30x 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.
294 - 295
1x Runed Arcanite Rod - 1 Arcanite Rod, 1 Golden Pearl, 10 Illusion Dust, 4 Greater Eternal Essence, 4 Small Brilliant Shard, 2 Large Brilliant Shard
295 - 300
5x 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.
Congratulations on reaching 300! Please send feedback about the guide if you think there are parts I could improve, or you found typos, errors, wrong material numbers!
