Outland Jewelcrafting Leveling Guide 1 - 75

This Outland Jewelcrafting leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Outland Jewelcrafting skill up from 1 to 75 as inexpensively as possible.

Profession skills are split between expansions now, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion. This guide is for the "Outland" Jewelcrafting skill in the current retail version of World of Warcraft. I have a separate guide for Bruning Crusade Classic, so if you are looking for that, visit my Classic TBC Jewelcrafting leveling guide.

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.

Leveling Outland Jewelcrafting

Go to Outland and find Loremaster Skosiris in Shattrath City. There will be a bunch of bookcases behind him, click on the Jewelcrafting bookcase and learn Outland Jewelcrafting. If you choose the Aldor faction during one of the Outland quests, then you can't interact with these books, you have to visit Nemiha in Shattrath City. (the fastest way to find these NPCs if you just ask a guard in the city for direction)

Draenei characters have +10 Jewelcrafting skill because of their passive [Gemcutting]. An extra 10 Jewelcrafting skill means recipes stay orange for 10 more points, so you can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for 10 more points.

  • 40 - 50
    10 x [Heavy Adamantite Ring] - 10 Adamantite Bar, 10 Mercurial Adamantite

    You can continue to make the gems above if you didn't reach 50 by making the rings, or make a few more rings.

50 - 60

The best recipes for this part are [Mystic Dawnstone] and [Steady Talasite] because it's really easy to get them.

You will need to craft around 12 from one of them, so you will need around 12 [Dawnstone] or [Talasite]. (or like 6, 6 if you get both recipes) You won't gain skill point for every craft because the recipes will be yellow, so you might have to make more than 12.


Halaa is a small town on a plateau in the middle of Nagrand. The faction controlling the town gains access to the NPCs spawned inside Halaa. This means you can't buy these recipes below if your faction don't control Halaa. But since there are usually no one doing PvP in this zone, you can safely turn in War Mode, kill the 15 guards, go to the middle of Halaa and wait until the faction progress bar fills up.

You can buy [Design: Mystic Dawnstone] at Halaa from Aldraan (Alliance), or from Coreiel (Horde) for 12 gold. This is a limited supply recipe, so if someone bought it before you, then you have to wait for it to respawn. (around 15min)

Halaa Research Token

[Design: Steady Talasite] is sold by Quartermaster Davian Vaclav (Alliance) and by Quartermaster Jaffrey Noreliqe (Horde) at Halaa for 4 [Halaa Research Token].

You can get 1 [Halaa Research Token] by turning in 10 [Oshu'gun Crystal Powder Sample] near the Halaa Quartermasters.

You can get 40 [Oshu'gun Crystal Powder Sample] in about 10 minutes, every single mob in Nagrand have a chance to drop one, but Sunspring Post is probably the best place to farm these because there are a lot of mobs packed together there. (West from Halaa)

Alternative Recipes

The rest of the rare gem craft are all World Drops with very low drop chance, so your best option is to check the Auction House because you might find one of them for a few hundred gold. (they usually cost thousands and it's not worth to buy them)

Every recipe have the raw gem name in it, so they will pop up if you search for the gem names. Example: [Rigid Star of Elune]

Check the recipes searching for these at the Auction House: [Living Ruby], [Nightseye], [Noble Topaz], [Star of Elune].

60 - 70

There are five recipes that you can use:

I recommend making [Kailee's Rose] because the next recipe in the guide also requires The Sha'tar reputation, so you will get both of them by farming one reputation.

You will need around 12 [Living Ruby], but the recipe will be yellow for the last 5 points, so you might have to make more. (Note: if you are having trouble getting Living Ruby, you can jump to the next part at 65)

[Design: Kailee's Rose] is sold by Almaador in Shattrat City. (The Sha'tar - Honored)

The Sha'tar Reputation

A full normal Botanica run, pulling everything in the dungeon until the end boss, gives around 2100 Sha'tar Reputation (You can start with one Heroic run to gain more reputation). One run takes around 4 minutes, and you will need to clear it around 5 times to reach Honored, so you can get to Honored in 20 minutes.

70 - 75

NOTE: You can make the previous recipe up to 75 if you have a lot of rare gems.

You already have the reputation for this recipe if you farmed The Sha'tar rep in the previous step.

[Design: Insightful Earthstorm Diamond] is sold by Almaador in Shattrat City. (The Sha'tar - Friendly)

Finding an Alchemist

[Earthstorm Diamond] are made by Outland Alchemists. [Recipe: Transmute Earthstorm Diamond] requires Honored reputation with Cenarion Expedition and Outland Alchemy 50.

Look for an Alchemist in trade chat or in your guild to make these for you:

I hope you liked this Outland Jewelcrafting leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 75!
