This guide provides an overview of all the additions and changes to Jewelcrafting in World of Warcraft Shadowlands. New rings, gems, trinkets, and legendary items!

Shadowlands Jewelcrafting Trainer Location

You can learn Shadowlands Jewelcrafting from Appraiser Au'vesk in Oribos in the Hall of Shapes. (Coordinates: 35.2, 41.8)

Oribos is the new Shadowlands city hub for both factions. You will arrive there after you finish the Shadowlands intro quests, so you can learn the new profession recipes before you head out questing.

Acquiring recipes

In Shadowlands, most recipes only have one rank, and you can learn most of them from your trainer. This makes leveling professions much easier since you don't have to grind reputations to get higher rank recipes.

These 3 recipes below are the only ones that you can't learn from your trainer:

Raw Materials

There are no rare raw gems in Shadowlands, and there is only 3 base gems for each primary color.

Essences are used to create the Legendary base items for rings and necklaces. You will sometimes get these when prospecting Shadowlands Ores.

Laestrite Setting, Malleable Wire, and Orboreal Shard are all sold by Distributor Au'kharn near your trainer.

Crafting Jewelcrafting Legendary Base items

Crafting your own Legendary Armor is one of the new features in the Shadowlands expansion. The Legendary armors require 4 different components before you can craft them, and one of them is the Base item (Rune Vessel) that determine the slot you are making your armor for, and the item level of your armor. These base items are crafted by players with Jewelcrafting, Jewelcrafting, Jewelcrafting, and Jewelcrafting.

How to learn the Base Item recipes?

Once you reach 100 in Shadowlands Jewelcrafting, the Runecarver will offer you The Vessels of Jewels quest.

How to craft higher ilvl Base Items?

Every base item has four ranks, and each of them will have its own little experience bar. You will gain experience each time you craft a base item and once you fill the experience bar, you will learn the next rank. Crafting a higher rank base item will give more experience.

Higher rank base items also require a lot more materials. A rank 4 item usually costs around 4 times as much as a rank 1.

Rank (ilvl) XP / Craft Total XP for next rank
Rank 1 (iLvl 190) 25 75
Rank 2 (iLvL 210) 50 150
Rank 3 (iLvL 225) 75 225
Rank 4 (iLvL 235) - -

Optional Reagents

These reagents change the item level of a crafted armor or weapon. (You can actually downgrade an item's item level and its level requirement if you use a lower level optional reagent)

These 3 optional reagents below can only be used to craft items from Shadowlands. All 8 manufacturing professions can craft these, so they are not exclusive to Jewelcrafting.
