This Cataclysm Blacksmithing leveling guide will show you the fastest way to level your Cataclysm Blacksmithing skill up from 1 to 75 as inexpensively as possible.
Often the materials are based on a case in that you will gain one skill point for each craft. This won't happen, so you will have to buy a few extra materials while you are leveling your Cataclysm Blacksmithing.
Approximate Materials Required
- 390x Obsidium Bar
- 340x Elementium Bar
- 10x Volatile Earth
- 150x Volatile Fire OR 150x Volatile Water (can be a combination of both, like 75-75)
- 2x Hardened Elementium Bar
Cataclysm Blacksmithing Leveling
First, visit any trainer in the main cities of old Azeroth - just ask a guard, and learn Cataclysm Blacksmithing.
Lightforged Draenei characters have +10 Blacksmithing skill because of their passive Forge of Light, and Dark Iron Dwarves have +5 from Mass Production. An extra 5 or 10 Blacksmithing skill means recipes stay orange for 5 or 10 more points, so you can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for a few more points.
Check out my Obsidium Ore farming guide or the Elementium Ore farming guide if you want to farm the ores.
