Professions skills are split between expansions now, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion. This guide is for the "Vanilla" Enchanting skill in the current retail version of World of Warcraft. I have a separate guide for Classic WoW, so if you are looking for that, visit my Classic WoW Enchanting Leveling Guide.
Often the materials are based on a case that you will gain one skill point each craft. This won't happen, so you will have to buy a few extra materials while you are leveling your Enchanting.
This is the list of approximate materials required to level Enchanting to 300.
- 1 x Lesser Magic Essence
- 134 x Strange Dust
- 10 x Greater Magic Essence
- 10 x Simple Wood - vendor
- 25 x Lesser Eternal Essence
- 170 x Light Illusion Dust - (or 57 Rich Illusion Dust since you can convert them)
- 220 x Rich Illusion Dust
- 45 x Greater Eternal Essence
Playing WoW Classic?
Visit my Classic WoW Enchanting leveling guide 1-300 if you are looking for the Classic WoW guide. Profession skills are split between expansions in the latest World of Warcraft expansion, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion, and you can level them separately. This guide is for the "Vanilla" Enchanting skill in Shadowlands.
Walk up to a guard in any of these major cities below and ask where the Enchanting trainer is located.
Horde: Orgrimmar, Thunder Bluff, Silvermoon City, Undercity
Alliance: Stormwind, Ironforge, Darnassus, The Exodar
After you ask the guard, the trainer will be marked with a red flag on your map.
1 - 110
Blood Elf characters have +10 Enchanting skill because of their passive [Arcane Affinity]. An extra 10 Enchanting 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.
You can put enchants on an [Enchanting Vellum] if you can't put it on your own armor because it's too high level. Enchanting Vellum is sold by General Goods vendors or Enchanting Supply vendors near your trainer.
1 x [Runed Copper Rod] - 1 Copper Rod, 1 Strange Dust, 1 Lesser Magic Essence
You can buy the [Copper Rod] from the Enchanting supply vendor near your trainer.
105 x [Enchant Bracer: Minor Health] - 105 Strange Dust
This recipe will be yellow for the last 20 points, so you might have to craft a few more.
10 x [Enchant Bracer: Minor Stamina] - 30 Strange Dust
If the Strange Dust is cheap and the Greater Magic Essence is too expensive on your realm, you can make this Enchant up to 120.
10 x [Greater Magic Wand] - 10 Simple Wood, 10 Greater Magic Essence
You can buy Simple Wood from Enchanting Supply vendors near your trainer, or any Generals Goods vendor.
110 - 225
Go to Stonetalon Mountains if you are a Horde player and find Kulwia. Alliance players go to Ashenvale and find Dalria.
These are limited supply recipes. If someone bought them before you, then you have to wait for it to respawn. I'm not sure about the exact respawn timer, but it's between 30-50 min.
25 x [Enchant Cloak: Minor Agility] - 25 Lesser Eternal Essence
20 x [Enchant Bracer - Lesser Stamina] - 40 Light Illusion Dust
40 x [Enchant Bracer - Lesser Strength] - 80 Light Illusion Dust
Read the 110-135 part if you started the guide from this point. There is a location listed there for this recipe.
This one turns yellow at 165. However, if 2 Light Illusion Dust is a lot cheaper than 4 Lesser Eternal Essence, keep making these until 185. If it's not then at 165 switch to:
- 165-180 15 x [Enchant Bracers: Versatility ] - 60 Lesser Eternal Essence
50 x [Enchant Bracer: Strength] - 50 Light Illusion Dust
This recipe will be yellow for the last few points, so you might have to craft more than 50.
5 x [Enchant Cloak: Greater Defense] - 10 Rich Illusion Dust
225 - 300
10 x [Enchant Boots - Stamina] - 20 Rich Illusion Dust
If you have a lot of extra Greater Eternal Essence, you can craft [Enchant Gloves: Agility].
10 x [Enchant Chest: Superior Health] - 20 Rich Illusion Dust
Yellow for the last 5 points, so you might have to craft more than 10.
10 x [Enchant Boots - Agility] - 20 Greater Eternal Essence
Try to hunt for [Formula: Enchant Bracer - Greater Stamina] at the Auction House. It's a random world drop, but this recipe is the best to level Enchanting from 245 to 265. The recipe is called Enchant Bracer Greater Stamina, not Boots.
5 x [Enchant Bracer - Greater Strength] - 10 Greater Eternal Essence, 10 Rich Illusion Dust
5 x [Enchant Bracer - Greater Intellect] - 15 Greater Eternal Essence
40 x [Enchant Shield: Greater Stamina] - 160 Rich Illusion Dust
IMPORTANT! The recipe binds when picked up! Don't make the mistake of trying to buy it with an alt and mail it. It's also a limited supply item, this means you have to wait if someone bought it before you.
I hope you liked this Enchanting leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 300!
