Dragonflight Tailoring Leveling Guide 1 - 100

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

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

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 level gear, higher-quality consumables that give more stats, and higher-quality reagents that give more profession skill when used in recipes.

Inspiration, Multicraft, Resourcefulness

  • Inspiration: Each time you craft something, you may be Inspired to craft the recipe with some bonus profession skill, allowing you to craft an item of 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" 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 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 points.

Players posting the Crafting Orders can set a commission for the crafter who completes their order.

How to Complete Crafting Orders

Clicking on the Crafting Orders tab at the bottom of your profession window will open 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 access Crafting Orders.

Tailoring Crafting Table location

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

Shopping List

These are the approximate materials needed to reach 65. The parts above 65 have too many different alternative recipes.

The quality doesn't matter for leveling, buy the cheapest.

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 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 getting the bonuses while they give you skill points is better. You will want to get all of them eventually.

1 - 15

30x Dragon Isles Unravelling - 150x Tattered Windercloth

Destroying around 150x Tattered Wildercloth should get you to 15.

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 Tailoring Specializations.

Which Specialization to choose first?

I recommend choosing Garmentcrafting as your first specialization. (you can learn all 4 as you level up your profession)

You will need 50 skill points to unlock the second specialization, 65 for the third, and 75 for the fourth. 65 is very easy to reach, but it may take a little longer to level to 75.

Where should you put your Dragon Isles Tailoring Knowledge talent points?

If you are NOT at Renown 15 with the Dragonscale Expedition, don't spend any points yet, I recommend leveling your profession to 65 first. You will need 15 points to unlock a recipe that you will use to level Tailoring (more on this later)

If you have Renown 15 with the Dragonscale Expedition, you can use a different recipe for leveling tailoring. You can freely spend your points any way you want. Spend some time reading through the specializations, then choose which direction you might want to take.

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 want to sell them at the Auction House, you can use it as an alternative.

46 - 51

Make 7x Wildercloth Bolt. These won't give you skill points, but you will need them later.

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

51 - 54

1x Surveyor's Seasoned Hood - 10x Wildercloth, 7x Spool of Wilderthread
2x Vibrant Wildercloth Bolt - 2x Vibrant Shard, 6x Wildercloth Bolt
1x Vibrant Spellthread - 1x Vibrant Shard, 2x Vibrant Wildercloth Bolt

54 - 65

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

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

65 - 100

There are two methods that you can use to level to 65. If you reached Renown 15 with the Dragonscale faction, I recommend choosing method one. Both methods are pretty cheap; the main difference is the time spent completing the required quests.

1. Dragonscale Expedition Renown 15

Buy Master's Wildercloth Fishing Cap from Cataloger Jakes. It requires Renown 15 with Dragonscale Expedition.

If you are not at Renown 15 with the Dragonscale Expedition faction, it's probably not worth to start farming Renown just for this, leveling with Spark of Ingenuity will probably be faster. (Unless you are at like 14)

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

The recipe will be green for the last 5 points, so you will probably have to make 50-60.

2. Leveling with Spark of Ingenuity

Spark of Ingenuity is a Bind on Pickup (BoP) crafting reagent that was used to craft high-level gear in Dragonflight Season 1. It has since been replaced with higher-level crafting reagents but can still be used to level your profession.

Step 1. - Dragonflight campaign quests

To get Spark of Ingenuity, you must complete the Dragonflight main story campaign quests until you unlock World Quests. This is ACCOUNT-WIDE, so you only need to complete these quests with one of your characters. If you open your quest log, you will find these quests at the top in the campaign section under the "Dragonflight" title.

Step 2. - Engine of Innovation Questline

Pick up the Learning Ingenuity quest from Therazal. This quest will start the Engine of Innovation Questline that will award you with Spark of Ingenuity.

Talk to Greyzik Cobblefinger to complete Learning Ingenuity and pick up the Jump-Start? Jump-Starting! quest.

If you have already completed the Engine of Innovation Questline with one of your characters, you don't have to do it again. Talk to Greyzik Cobblefinger to skip the quests, and then talk to Maiden of Inspiration to get your 5x Spark of Ingenuity.

Otherwise, you need to complete the entire Engine of Innovation Questline until you get all five Spark of Ingenuity.

Step 3. - Crafting Bracers

Put your first 15 points in the Garmentcrafting specialization like this:

  1. Put 5 points into Garmentcrafting.
  2. Learn the Embellishments sub-specialization, then put 10 points into Embellishments.
  3. Learn the Armbands sub-specizalization. This will teach you the Vibrant Wildercloth Wristwraps recipe.

Craft 5x Vibrant Wildercloth Wristwraps - 30x Spool of Wilderthread, 40x Vibrant Wildercloth Bolt

You can make any other Vibran Wildercloth armor.

Step 4. - Getting more Sparks

To level to 100, you will need another 8x Spark of Ingenuity. Unfortunately, you can't get more than 5 on one character. However, you can use the crafting order system to send crafting orders to your own characters, so you can get more from your alts or by creating trial characters.

Creating a trial character

If you have two level 58 alt characters, you can skip this part and use them instead of creating trials.

  1. Go to the character selection screen and click "Create New Character" in the bottom left corner.
  2. On the character creation page, tick the "Class Trial" box in the bottom left corner.
  3. Choose any class and talents, then create your Character.
  4. Go to the portal room in Orgrimmar/Stormwind and click on the Valdrakken portal.

Skipping quests to get 5x Sparks

  1. Talk to Greyzik Cobblefinger about skipping the quests, and then talk to Maiden of Inspiration.
  2. Talk to the crafting order NPC Clerk Silverpaw in Valdrakken.
  3. Click on Armor -> Cloth -> Wrist, then click "Search" and pick Vibrant Wildercloth Wristwraps.
  4. Change Public Order to Personal Order in the top right, then type in your main character name.
  5. You don't have to fill in materials other than the Spark of Ingenuity in the "Spark" slot. You can fill the rest of the materials with your main.
  6. Log in with your main, and complete the crafting orders. (scroll back in the guide for crafting table location)
  7. Repeat these steps above until you have enough Sparks to reach 100.
