Shadowlands Blacksmithing Leveling Guide 1 - 100

This Shadowlands Blacksmithing leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to level your Shadowlands Blacksmithing skill up from 1 to 100.

This guide's primary focus is leveling Blacksmithing, but you can visit my Shadowlands Blacksmithing Guide if you want to read more about the new changes, Blacksmithing bonuses, and recipes.

Blacksmithing is the best combined with Mining, and I highly recommend to level Mining and Blacksmithing together because you will need a lot of gold if you want to buy everything from Auction House. Check out my Mining leveling guide if you're going to level Mining.

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.

Shadowlands Blacksmithing Trainer Location

You can learn Shadowlands Blacksmithing from Smith Au'berk in Oribos in the Hall of Shapes. (Coordinates: 40.4, 31.6)

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.

Smith Au'berk

Approximate Materials Required

You can buy Luminous Flux from Distributor Au'til. He is around 30 yards to the west from the Blacksmithing trainer.

Check out my farming guides if you want to farm any of these ores:

Leveling Shadowlands Blacksmithing

There are 3 races with extra Blacksmithing skill as their racial trait. Any extra Blacksmithing skill means recipes stay orange for more points. You can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for more points.

1 - 50

You can buy Luminous Flux and Blacksmith Hammer from Distributor Au'til. He is around 30 yards to the west from the Blacksmithing trainer.

I recommend making items that require more Luminous Flux than an alternative recipe because those items sell for a lot more. The extra gold negates the extra Luminous Flux cost, and you will end up with a few more gold after vendoring the items.

  • 40 - 45
    7 x Ceremonious Blade - 35 Laestrite Ore

    You might have to make a few more.

50 - 70

  • 50-60
    20 x 2 x Shadowghast Ingot - 20 Solenium Ore, 20 Sinvyr Ore, 20 Phaedrum Ore, 20 Oxxein Ore, 80 Luminous Flux

    You will need more than a hundred of these to reach 100, so just make these until it turns grey. These are basically free skill points. However, you shouldn't make all of them now because there are a few other ways to gain skill points and you might need fewer of these. Making around 20 should get you to 60.

Darkmoon Faire free +5 skill points

Check your Calendar in-game to see if the Darkmoon Faire is open. You can find the in-game calendar in the top right corner of your minimap. The Darkmoon Faire event starts at 00:01 on the first Sunday of each in-game calendar month.

You can gain +5 skill points by completing a single quest. Check out my Darkmoon Faire Profession Quests Guide to read more about the quests.

Complete the quest at 75 to save the most gold!

Blacksmithing World Quests in Shadowlands

A Blacksmithing World quest will pop up every few days in one of the Shadowlands zones. They all give +1 Shadowlands Blacksmithing skill point. Just look for a little Blacksmithing icon on your world map. (requires level 60)

So, if you don't want to rush to 100, you can save some gold by completing these quests.

70 - 100

  • 70-80

    Complete the Darkmoon quest at 75 to save the most gold!

    10 x Shadowsteel Gauntlets - 50 Laestrite Ore, 70 Shadowghast Ingot, 10 Elethium Ore

    This recipe will be yellow for the last few points, so you might have to make more.
