Dragonflight Tailoring Leveling Guide 1 - 100

This Dragonflight Tailoring leveling guide will show you the fastest and cheapest way how to level your Dragon Isles Tailoring skill up from 1 to 100.

Tailoring can be combined with any profession because you don't need a gathering profession to support it. Pairing it with Herbalism, Minning, or Skinning can be a great way to get some extra gold while doing activites in WoW. Enchanting is a also a popular choice because Enchanting doesn't need a gathering profession either.

New Dragonflight Tailoring features

There are a lot of new stats added to professions in Dragonflight, so here is a quick explanation for some of these.

Recipe Difficulty

Recipe Difficulty shows you how much profession skill is required to make a recipe at the highest quality. You can see your current profession Skill below the Recipe Difficulty stat. Your Skill comes from your base profession skill, specializations, profession equipment, racials, and using high-quality reagents. So, your profession skill can go well above 100.

Item Quality

Every crafted piece of Tailoring armor and weapon has 5 different qualities. Tailoring Crafted Reagents, Enchantments, and Consumable items have 3 different qualities.

Basically, if you have higher skill, you can make higher ilvl gear, higher quality consumables that give more stat, and higher quality reagents that give more profession skill when used in recipes.

Inspiration, Multicraft, Resourcefulness

  • Inspiration: Each time you craft something, there is a chance you get Inspired and craft the recipe with some bonus profession skill, so you can craft an item with higher quality than you could normally. 
  • Resourcefulness: You have a chance to use fewer reagents.
  • Multicraft: You have a chance to craft additional items. (doesn't work on crafted gear, only consumables and reagents)

Dragon Isles Tailoring Knowledge

Dragon Isles Tailoring Knowledge points are the "talent points" that you can put into your profession specialization to learn new skills, stats, and bonuses.

Tailoring Crafting Orders

Crafting Orders are a new way for players to request a crafter to craft something for them. The interface looks like the Auction House, but instead of players posting Auctions, it will be filled with Crafting Orders that you can complete as a Tailor.

Completing crafting orders can give you skill points if you complete orders for items that would normally give you skill point. 

Commission

Players posting the Crafting Orders can set a commission for the crafter who completes their order. But since they are also providing the reagents for the items, the commission will probably be pretty low for trainer-taught and common recipes.

How to Complete Crafting Orders

Clicking on the Crafting Orders tab at the bottom of your profession window will open up the Crafting Order UI, where you can browse Crafting Orders posted by other players. You must be near a Crafting Table for your profession to be able to access Crafting Orders.

Tailoring Crafting Table location

You can find the Tailoring crafting table in Valdrakken at the location marked in the picture below.

Leveling Dragonflight Tailoring

First Craft Bonus

You will get 1x Dragon Isles Tailoring Knowledge talent point each time you craft something for the first time. Dragon Isles Tailoring Knowledge is very valuable and has a weekly cap from other sources. 

So, sometimes you will see I recommend crafting a recipe that's slightly more expensive to make. This is because I think it's better to get the bonuses while they give you skill points. You will want to get all of them eventually.

Shopping List

This is the approximate materials needed to reach around 53. The parts above 50 have too many different alternative recipes.

1 - 15

68x Dragon Isles Unravelling - 340x Tattered Windercloth

You will need around 72x Spool of Wilderthread to reach 53. Destroying around 340x Tattered Wildercloth should give you enough.

15 - 21

1x Surveyor's Cloth Robe - 8x Wildercloth, 5x Spool of Wilderthread
1x Wildercloth Gardening Hat - 5x Wildercloth, 4x Spool of Wilderthread, 5x Hochenblume

21 - 27

1x Wildercloth Chef's Hat - 8x Wildercloth, 6x Spool of Wilderthread
1x Surveyor's Tailored Cloak - 5x Wildercloth, 4x Spool of Wilderthread

Tailoring Specializations

When you hit 25, you will unlock Specializations. I would suggest having a little bit of a look through the specializations. Spend some time reading through them, then choose which direction you might want to go.

But don't be too hasty with spending points just at this time unless you have a clear goal of which direction you wanna go. The Knowledge points are going to be the limited commodity that you will never be able to get enough of, and you will always want more of. You can continue leveling your profession and return to choosing a specialization and spending knowledge points a bit later.

You will need 50 skill points to unlock the second specialization, 65 for the third, and 75 for the fourth. 50 is very easy to reach, but it may take a little while to level to 75. So, be aware that you will have to choose which one you feel you can do without for the longest. 

27 - 30

1x Wildercloth Fishing Cap - 5x Wildercloth, 4x Spool of Wilderthread

30 - 36

1x Surveyor's Seasoned Cord - 8x Wildercloth, 6x Spool of Wilderthread
2x Wildercloth Alchemist's Robe - 12x Wildercloth, 8x Spool of Wilderthread

36 - 40

1x Surveyor's Seasoned Gloves - 8x Wildercloth, 6x Spool of Wilderthread
1x Wildercloth Enchanter's Hat - 3x Wildercloth, 4x Spool of Wilderthread, 3x Chromatic Dust

40 - 46

3x Surveyor's Seasoned Shoulders - 24x Wildercloth, 18x Spool of Wilderthread

If you need the Wildercloth Bag or you want to sell them at the Auction House, you can use it as an alternative.

46 - 51

1x Abrasive Polishing Cloth - 3x Fractured Glass, 1x Wildercloth Bolt
2x Surveyor's Seasoned Pants - 20x Wildercloth, 14x Spool of Wilderthread

51 - 53

1x Surveyor's Seasoned Hood - 10x Wildercloth, 7x Spool of Wilderthread
1x Vibrant Spellthread - 1x Vibrant Shard, 2x Vibrant Wildercloth Bolt

53 - 65 (optional)

This step is optional. It's mainly for those who want to reach 100 faster. You can jump to the next part and try to start completing Crafting Orders.

25x Surveyor's Seasoned Hood - 250x Wildercloth, 175x Spool of Wilderthread

53 - 100

Almost all tailoring recipes that can give you skill points up 100 require soulbound material. It would be almost impossible to farm the needed materials for a single person, so you will have to use the Crafting Order system to level up your profession. None of these recipes are taught by your trainer. They are from vendors, specializations, and the Auction House. It's much harder to reach Tailoring 100 in Dragonflight than in other expansions, so don't expect to level to 100 in a day.

Master's Wildercloth Fishing Cap

Master's Wildercloth Fishing Cap is the only tailoring recipe that doesn't require any BoP materials and gives you skill points up to 100. The Fishing Cap is soulbound. You won't be able to sell any of them at the Auction House, so use this only if you want to reach 100 without using the Crafting Order system. The recipe will be green for the last 5 points, so you will probably have to make 50-60.

55x Master's Wildercloth Fishing Cap - 110x Rainbow Pearl, 275x Spool of Wilderthread, 165x Vibrant Wildercloth Bolt

The recipe is sold by Cataloger Jakes. It requires Renown 15 with Dragonscale Expedition.

Spellthreads and Optional Reagents

These Spellthreads and Optional Reagents deserve a special mention because these are the only ones that are not soulbound and they don't require soulbound materials either, so you could level with these even without Crafting Orders and sell some of them at the Auction House.

However, they don't give skill points up to 100. The optional reagents will give skill points up to 75, and the Spellthreads up to 85. Both of them will be green for the last five points.

Tailoring Crafting Orders

Since the whole Crafting Order system is new and untested, I cannot say which recipes are the best ones yet. I will list the full list of recipes that you can use for leveling to 100. There will probably be demand for all of them.

It's clear to me that Blizzard wanted players to use the Crafting Order system to level up their profession from around 50 or 75. But the reality is that so few people use the system that it's almost impossible to level your profession right now. Crafting Orders are not cross-realm, so if you play on a low-population realm, the situation is even worse. In one Week, I couldn't complete a single crafting order for any of the epic pieces.

I think more people will post crafting orders once the raids and Mythic plus dungeons open up because many people are just saving their materials. So, be patient, and let's hope more people will use this system.
