Learning BfA Enchanting

The new BfA Enchanting skill is named differently for the two factions, but the name is the only difference between them.

Kul Tiran Enchanting is the Alliance version and Zandalari Enchanting is the Horde version.

Enchanting Trainers:

You can walk up to a guard in Dazar'alor or Boralus then ask where the Enchanting trainer is located. This will place a red marker on your map at the trainer's location.

Leveling Enchanting

Professions skills are split between expansions now, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion. This means you can level the new Battle for Azeroth skill tier without putting any point into any of the previous expansions tiers, you don't have to level Enchanting with older materials to be able to craft the new BfA items. The new Battle for Azeroth Enchanting has a maximum of 176 skill points. You can read more about this in my BfA Profession overview.

Every BfA recipe will require different Enchanting skill levels, so it's very different from what we had in Legion where you could make most high-level enchants with Enchanting skill 1. You will have to level your BfA Enchanting skill up if you want to make high-level enchants.

Check out my BfA Enchanting Leveling Guide 1-175, if you are looking for a more in-depth leveling guide with exact numbers and reagents needed

Acquiring Recipes

Most recipes still have ranks just like in Legion, but there are no profession quests for crafting profession in BfA, you will learn most rank 1 and rank 2 recipes from your trainer. They are gated by profession skill, so you have to level your Enchanting up to get every recipe.

  • Rank 1: Allows you to craft the item.
  • Rank 2: Reduces the materials required to craft an item.
  • Rank 3: Greatly reduces the materials required to craft an item.

Reputation Vendors

You can buy most Rank 3 recipes from vendors, but none of them require Exalted reputation, only Revered, so it's pretty easy to get them. (A few rank 3 recipes come from World Quests)

Enchanting Perks

Tools of the Trade - Iwen's Enchanting Rod

If you level your character to level 120 and your Battle for Azeroth Enchanting to 150, then you can unlock a special questline to craft Iwen's Enchanting Rod. This rod will give you more materials when you disenchant items, and you can also spend 1 Veiled Crystal to power up an inert golem, which is a small guardian pet that will follow you around and helps you fight mobs.

The questline will take you through the process of creating your tool and give you some backstory on where the recipe comes from. Most of the quests are really straightforward and easy so I'll skip explaining each quests. Just follow your quest log and check the markers on your map.

To get started on your profession quest line, speak with your profession trainer Pin'jin the Patient (Horde) in Dazar'alor or Daniel Brineweaver (Alliance) in Boralus. You can walk up to a guard in Dazar'alor or Boralus then ask where your profession trainer is located. This will place a red marker on your map at the trainer's location.

After you complete the quest chain, you will get the Recipe: Iwen's Enchanting Rod recipe. To craft this item, you need:

Wrist Enchants

There are three new wrist enchants to buff your heathstone while in Kul Tiras or Zandalar. Only the enchanter's bracers can be enchanted, and doing so will cause them to become soulbound.

Crafting Materials

New materials: Gloom Dust Umbra Shard Veiled Crystal

There are also 5 soulbound crafting materials:

Expulsom is obtained primarily from scrapping armors and weapons using the Scrap-o-Matic 1000 (Alliance), or the Shred-Master Mk1 (Horde). These tools work like disenchanting, you can break down any gear obtained that is from the Battle for Azeroth expansion, including dungeon/raid drops, quest rewards, world drops, and crafted gear. You can read about this in more detail if you visit my Expulsom Farming Guide.

Tidalcore is a guaranteed drop from the last boss in a Mythic dungeons and from the chest at the end of any level Mythic Plus Dungeon. They can also drop from the last boss of a heroic dungeon, however, this is not a guaranteed drop.

Breath of Bwonsamdi drops from bosses in the new raid Battle for Dazar'alor and is used for crafting epic 400 and 415 item Alchemy trinkets. (1 from each LFR wing, 1 from a Normal boss, 10 from a Heroic boss, 20 from a Mythic boss)

Sanguicell drops from raid bosses in Uldir. (1 from each LFR wing, 1 from a Normal boss, 10 from a Heroic boss, 20 from a Mythic boss)

Hydrocore used to drop in Mythic dungeons, but it no longers drops since path 8.1, and you can only get it by using Transmutes.

WoW Leveling Guide 1-110 Do you want to reach level 120 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in a 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.
