Often the materials are based on a case 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 Outland Blacksmithing.
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. And if you are low on gold, I recommend trying this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make a lot of gold.
Outland Blacksmithing Trainer
You can learn Outland Blacksmithing from Zula Slagfury in Shattrath City. (Use the Shattrath portal in your faction's portal room at Orgrimmar/Stormwind)
Approximate Materials Required
This is just a fraction of the materials required. The 60-75 part is not included in the list below because there are three ways to level between 60 and 75. You can read more about this when you get to 60.
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.
1 - 35
Some of these recipes below are yellow/green, so you will not gain skill point every time. These are approximate numbers, you might need to make more or fewer.
- 1 - 5
7 x Fel Weightstone - 7 Fel Iron Bar, 7 Netherweave Cloth
- 5 - 15
10 x Fel Iron Plate Belt - 40 Fel Iron Bar
- 15 - 20
5 x Fel Iron Chain Gloves - 25 Fel Iron Bar
- 20 - 25
5 x Fel Iron Plate Boots - 30 Fel Iron Bar
- 25 - 35
45 x Lesser Rune of Warding - 45 Adamantite Bar
35 - 40
5 x Adamantite Cleaver - 40 Adamantite Bar
This recipe is sold by Aaron Hollman at Shattrath. It's a limited supply item, so if someone bought it before you, you have to wait for it to respawn. (5-10minutes)
40 - 50
45 x Lesser Ward of Shielding - 45 Adamantite Bar
The recipe is sold by Rohok (Horde) at Hellfire Peninsula, and by Mari Stonehand (Alliance) at Shadowmoon Valley. It's a limited supply item, so you have to wait if someone bought it before you. (15-60min respawn time).
It's green for the last 5 points, so 25 is just an approximate number. You might need to make more or fewer.
50 - 60
45 x Adamantite Weightstone - 45 Adamantite Bar, 90 Netherweave Cloth
This recipe is green for the last 5 points, so 25 is just an approximate number. You might need to make more or fewer.
You can buy the recipe from Fedryen Swiftspear at Zangarmarsh. It requires Honored reputation with the Cenarion Expedition faction.
You can get Honored Cenarion Expedition if you clear Heroic Steamvault, Underboug, and Slave Pens once, then clear Normal Steamvault a few more times. Takes about 30 minutes to reach Honored. (kill every trash mob in the instances)
Multiple ways to level from 60 to 75
You can level to 75 with 3 different methods. Read each part and check the Auction House which one is cheaper, or decide for yourself which one is easier to farm.
First of all, you should check your reputations and look for "The Scryers" or "The Aldor" faction to see which one you choose after the City of Light quest. If you are Unfriendly with one of them, then you selected the other one, and you should have Neutral or higher reputation with that faction.
The only exception if your race is Draenei or Blood Elf. Blood Elves start at Friendly with the Scryers, and Unfriendly with the Aldor. Draenei start at Friendly with the Aldor, and Unfriendly with the Scryers, even if they didn't finish the quests below.
If you are Neutral with both of these factions, then you are lucky, and you can still select a faction.
- Find Haggard War Veteran in Shattrath City and pick up the quest A'dal.
- After you complete the quest, you can pick up City of Light from Archmage Khadgar.
- City of Light takes 8-9 minutes to complete. You have to follow Khadgar's servant around Shattrath City, but if you get too far the quest will fail, and you will have to restart the whole quest
- WARNING: Make sure you turn off any auto quest turn-in addons. The addon will pick the first one in the next step. (which is Aldor)
- After you complete the quest, you can pick Allegiance to the Aldor or Allegiance to the Scryers.
Approximate materials for each way
Picking Scryers is usually cheaper than Aldor, so I recommend going with Scryers. But you should get your calculator, go to the Auction House and calculate the price of each.
NOTE: These are approximate numbers. Every single recipe is green for the last few points, so I wrote lower materials numbers here, you will probably need more, depending on your luck.
|The Scryers||Dungeons||The Aldor|
You will have to find an Outland miner to make Hardened Adamantite Bar for you.
You will have to find an Outland miner to make Felsteel Bar for you.
60 - 75
The Scryers recipes
Even if you choose Allegiance to the Scryers, you still need to grind some reputation before you can buy the recipes. (Blood Elves can buy the first one right away)
60 - 67
7 x Enchanted Adamantite Belt - 14 Hardened Adamantite Bar (280 Adamantite Ore), 56 Arcane Dust, 14 Large Prismatic Shard
This recipe is sold by Quartermaster Enuril (Requires The Scryers Friendly). It will be yellow for the last 2 points, so you might have to make more.
67 - 75
10 x Enchanted Adamantite Breastplate - 40 Hardened Adamantite Bar (800 Adamantite Ore), 200 Arcane Dust, 40 Large Prismatic Shard
This recipe will be green for the last 3 points, so I can't tell you how many extras you have to make. You probably have to make a lot more than 10.
The recipe is sold by Quartermaster Enuril. Requires The Scryers Revered.
The Aldor recipes
You only need to reach Honored with Aldor, and you can level using only one recipe.
60 - 75
17 x Flamebane Gloves - 136 Fel Iron Bar, 68 Primal Water, 68 Primal Fire
This recipe will be green for the last 3 points, so I can't tell you how many extra you have to make. You probably have to make a lot more than 17.
You can buy the recipe from Quartermaster Endarin. Requires The Aldor Honored.
There are only two good recipes that you can use: Felsteel Gloves or Earthpeace Breastplate. The chest requires Outland Blacksmithing 70 to craft, so you will have to farm Felsteel Gloves recipe no matter what.
- Plans: Earthpeace Breastplate is dropped by High Botanist Freywinn in The Botanica.
- Plans: Felsteel Gloves is dropped by Auchenai Monk in Auchenai Crypts.
The drop rate is pretty high. I tried it with 4 different characters and I was able to get the Felsteel recipe on my first run with 3 different characters, but my 4th character had to clear it 4 times before I got it.
60 - 70
10 x Felsteel Gloves - 60 Felsteel Bar
Outland Miners can make 1 Felsteel Bar from 3 Fel Iron Bar, and 2 Eternium Bar.
70 - 75
- 10 x Felsteel Gloves - 60 Felsteel Bar - (360 Fel Iron Ore, 240 Eternium Ore)
- 10 x Earthpeace Breastplate - 40 Hardened Adamantite Bar (800 Adamantite Ore), 60 Primal Life, 40 Primal Earth
You probably have to craft a lot more than 10 from these, because the recipe will be green for the last 3 points.
I hope you liked this Outland Blacksmithing leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 75!
