Professions skills are split between expansions now, you'll have a separate skill bar for each expansion. This guide is for the "Vanilla" 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.
Playing TBC Classic?
Visit my TBC Classic Jewelcrafting leveling guide 1-375. 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" Jewelcrafting skill in Shadowlands.
You can learn Jewelcrafting from any of these trainers below.
This is the list of approximate materials required to reach 300.
- 100x Copper Bar
- 20x Tigerseye or 20x Malachite
- 120x Bronze Bar = (60x Copper Bar, 60x Tin Bar
- 60x Shadowgem or you can also get 20x Shadowgem and 20x Small Lustrous Pearl
- 80x Heavy Stone
- 30x Moss Agate or 60x Lesser Moonstone (combination of both can work too)
- 140x Mithril Bar
- 80x Solid Stone
- 25x Citrine
- 15x Truesilver Bar
- 5x Aquamarine
- 50x Thorium Bar
- 10x Star Ruby
- 20x Large Opal
- 7x Azerothian Diamond
- 3x Blue Sapphire
- 3x Essence of Undeath
- 20x Huge Emerald
You will automatically learn the Prospecting skill when you learn Jewelcrafting. You can use this skill to convert 5 raw ores into gems if you want to prospect the ores instead of buying the gems from the Auction House. (can be time-consuming)
Each ore will yield different types of gems, so I put together the table below to list all the available gems that you can get from each ore.
- Common: Each time you prospect 5x ores, you will always get at least 1 gem from the "Common" column in the table below. Sometimes you can get two common gems, so these numbers don't add up to 100%.
- Rare: There is also a chance to get 1 gem from the "Rare" column. This roll is on top of the common gem(s), so this will show up as an extra gem in your loot window.
|Copper Ore||Malachite (50%)
|Tin Ore||Lesser Moonstone (38%)
Moss Agate (38%)
|Iron Ore||Lesser Moonstone (35%)
|Star Ruby (5%)
|Mithril Ore||Star Ruby (35%)
|Blue Sapphire (2.5%)
Large Opal (2.5%)
Azerothian Diamond (2.5%)
Huge Emerald (2.5%)
|Thorium Ore||Star Ruby (30%)
Huge Emerald (16%)
Azerothian Diamond (16%)
Blue Sapphire (16%)
Large Opal (16%)
Leveling Vanilla Jewelcrafting
Draenei characters have +10 Jewelcrafting skill because of their passive Gemcutting, and Kul Tiran characters have +5 from the trait Jack of All Trades. Any extra Jewelcrafting skill means recipes stay orange for more points. You can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for more points.
Before you start, you have to buy a Jeweler's Kit from the Jewelcrafting Supplies vendor near your trainer or General/Trade Goods vendors.
1 - 110
30x Delicate Copper Wire - 60 Copper Bar
Save these, you will need them later.
20x Tigerseye Band - 20 Tigerseye, 20 Delicate Copper Wire
You can make 20x Malachite Pendant too.
50x Bronze Setting - 100 Bronze Bar
Save these, you will need them later.
20x Simple Pearl Ring - 20 Small Lustrous Pearl, 20 Bronze Setting, 40 Copper Bar
20x Gloom Band - 20 Bronze Setting, 40 Shadowgem, 40 Delicate Copper Wire
Make Ring of Silver Might if Silver Bar is cheap on your server.
10x Ring of Twilight Shadows - 20 Shadowgem, 20 Bronze Bar
You can also continue to make Ring of Silver Might
110 - 180
10x Heavy Stone Statue - 80 Heavy Stone
If Heavy Stone is cheap (usually it's not) make this one up to 130 if you want to.
30x Pendant of the Agate Shield - 30 Moss Agate, 30 Bronze Settings
If you prospect your own Ores, usually you will get a lot of Lesser Moonstone too, but even if you don't prospect the Ores, sometimes 2 Lesser Moonstone is cheaper than one Moss Agate. So get the recipe Design: Amulet of the Moon and use up all your Lesser Moonstone. This recipe turns yellow at 140, you might need to make more than 30 of these.
The design is sold by these NPCs.
45x Mithril Filigree - 90 Mithril Bar
Save these, you will need 45 of them later.
180 - 250
8x Solid Stone Statue - 80 Solid Stone
15x Engraved Truesilver Ring - 15 Truesilver Bar, 30 Mithril Filigree
25x Citrine Ring of Rapid Healing - 25 Citrine, 50 Mithril Bar
The recipe will go yellow at 210, so you might need to get more Citrine if you are unlucky. If you are lucky you will only need 20.
If Citrine is too expensive, you can continue to make Engraved Truesilver Ring up to around 210 or maybe more. But you will also need a bit more Mithril Filigree then.
5x Aquamarine Pendant of the Warrior - 5 Aquamarine, 15 Mithril Filigree
50x Thorium Setting - 50 Thorium Bar
Stop making these at 250 and only make more if you need them, but you will need around 50.
250 - 300
10x Ruby Pendant of Fire - 10 Star Ruby, 10 Thorium Setting
20x Simple Opal Ring - 20 Large Opal, 20 Thorium Setting
If you reach 265 and you have a lot of Azerothian Diamond or if it's cheap, you can start to craft Diamond Focus Ring. But keep in mind that you will need 7 Azerothian Diamond for the next step.
If Large Opal is too expensive on your realm, like it costs twice as much as one Star Ruby, then you should continue to make Ruby Pendant of Fire up to 275. Or if you Prospected your own Ores, you will have a lot of Star Ruby and Azerothian Diamond left, use all of them.
7x Diamond Focus Ring - 7 Azerothian Diamond, 7 Thorium Setting
3x Sapphire Pendant of Winter Night - 3 Blue Sapphire, 3 Essence of Undeath, 3 Thorium Setting
If you don't have Essence of Undeath you can just make Glowing Thorium Band up to 290.
10x Emerald Lion Ring - 20 Huge Emerald, 10 Thorium Setting
Make a few Glowing Thorium Band if you have some Azerothian Diamonds left.
