BfA Enchanting Leveling Guide 1 - 175

This Battle for Azeroth Enchanting leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to level your BfA Enchanting skill up from 1 to 175.

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

Enchanting goes well with Tailoring because you don't need a gathering profession to support either of these. If you level Tailoring and Enchanting together, then you can disenchant most items you craft. But you will spend a lot of gold on this profession if you want to buy everything from the Auction House. It depends on the realm economy but can cost up to tens of thousands of gold.

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.

BfA Enchanting Trainer Location

The new BfA Enchanting skill is named differently for the two factions, but the name is the only difference between them.

Kul Tiran Enchanting is the Alliance version and Zandalari Enchanting is the Horde version.

Enchanting Trainers:

You can walk up to a guard in Dazar'alor or Boralus then ask where the Enchanting trainer is. Asking the guard will place a red marker on your map at the trainer's location.

Recipe Ranks

Most high-level Battle for Azeroth Enchanting recipes has 3 ranks. Higher rank recipes reduce the materials required to create a recipe, and also give skill points much longer.

Unlocking World Quests

Some of the Rank 3 recipes are locked behind World Quests. They show up randomly, so you can't predict when you can get them, but there are new ones up every couple of days. They will be marked with a small enchanting icon on your world map.

To unlock World Quest, you must complete the first steps of the Alliance or Horde War Campaigns until you get the quest Uniting Kul Tiras (Alliance) / Uniting Zandalar (Horde).

Approximate Materials Required

Leveling BfA Enchanting

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 should put the enchants on an Enchanting Vellum, so you can sell them at the Auction House. Enchanting Vellum is sold by General Goods vendors or Enchanting Supply vendors near your trainer.

1 - 30

Make around 40 from any of the glove enchants that cost 5 Gloom Dust.

  • 40 x Any glove enchant - 200 Gloom Dust

30 - 35

  • 7 x Any from the "Seal of..." ring enchants - 84 Gloom Dust

You might have to make a few more.

You can also make 5 from any of the .... Hearthing enchants if you can get cheap Umbra Shard.

35 - 85

Learn the rank 2 ring enchants from the trainer, then get a rank 3 ring enchant recipe

  • 70 x Rank 3 ring enchants - 560 Gloom Dust

I recommend waiting until you can get any of the rank 3 ring enchant recipes because the rank 2 is only yellow up to 57, while rank 3 stays yellow up to 75. There is no other good alternative for the 60-85, everything is just really expensive.

Reaching Revered with the Tortollan Seekers will take some time, but the World Quests can pop up anytime. It's possible you might get one of them right away after you unlock World Quests.

Alternative recipes

If you really want to get to 75 to unlock the best ring enchants, and you don't care about the cost, then you can make these:

  • 35-65
    40 x Rank 2 ring enchants - 400 Gloom Dust

    If you don't have Veiled Crystal, or it's extremely expensive, you should make this one up to 75.

  • 65-85
    25 x Weapon Enchant - Deadly Navigation - 200 Umbra Shard, 500 Gloom Dust, 25 Veiled Crystal

    You can make any other weapon enchants that have the same material cost as this one.

    Every weapon enchant recipe will be yellow, so 25 is just an approximate number.

85 - 95

You can make any other weapon enchants that have the same material cost as this one. It will be a lot easier to sell at the Auction House if you make a few from each enchants. Every weapon enchants recipe will be yellow, so 15 is just an approximate number.


95 - 120

Learn the rank 2 weapon enchants from the trainer, then get a rank 3 weapon enchant recipe.

  • 25 x Any rank 3 weapon enchant - 100 Umbra Shard, 625 Gloom Dust, 25 Veiled Crystal

Rank 3 Recipes:

The world quest recipes are really easy to get. But they show up randomly, so you can't predict when you can get them.

120 - 125

  • 7 x Any Rank 2 "Pact of..." ring enchant - 35 Veiled Crystal, 28 Umbra Shard, 90 Gloom Dust

Rank 2 - Enchanter's Sorcerous Scepter would be cheaper to make, but you can always sell the ring enchants so you will make most of your gold back.

125 - 145

The Formula: Enchanted Tiki Mask is dropped by King Rastakhan inside Battle of Dazar'alor raid. It drops in every difficulty so you can get it in Raid Finder. I went there with 3 different characters and got it for the first time with all 3 of them, so I think it's 100% drop rate.

If you don't want to get the Tiki Mask recipe, you can start making the recipe below, but it will be more expensive.

145 - 150

Visit your trainer Narv (Horde) / Instructor Okanu (Alliance) at Nazjatar and learn the new recipes. (You have to finish the first few intro quest at Nazjatar before you can see these NPCs.)

5 x Rank 1 - Notorious Combatant's Sorcerous Scepter - 5 Star Wood, 125 Gloom Dust, 35 Umbra Shard, 15 Expulsom

The Star Wood is sold by Enchanting supply vendors, trade good vendors, or from the Enchanting Trainer. The closest one I think is back at your trainer at Zuldazar / Kul Tiras.

How to get Expulsom?

You need a lot of Expulsom to reach 175, so check out my guide on How to get Expulsom, if you don't know how to get this crafting item.

150 - 165

Buy the rank 2 Formula: Notorious Combatant's Sorcerous Scepter recipe for 2 Mark of Honor from Dazzerian (Horde) / Crafticus Mindbender (Alliance) at Nazjatar.

15 x Rank 2 - Notorious Combatant's Sorcerous Scepter - 15 Star Wood, 345 Gloom Dust, 90 Umbra Shard, 30 Expulsom

Switch to Light-Step Hoofplates between 155-170 if you can get cheap Monel-Hardened Hoofplates.

How to get Mark of Honor?

You can get Mark of Honor from winning Battlegrounds and Arenas, or you can also buy an Orboreal Distinguishment for 2000 honor from Purveyor Zo'kuul in Oribos. One box contains 5 x Mark of Honor, so simply farming honor and buying these boxes is the fastest way to get Mark of Honor.

NOTE: Mark of Honor is account bound, so you can send it to your character from your alts.

165 - 175

Buy the Rank 3 Formula: Notorious Combatant's Sorcerous Scepter recipe for 4 Mark of Honor from the same NPCs as the rank 2. 

10 x Rank 3 - Notorious Combatant's Sorcerous Scepter - 10 Star Wood, 200 Gloom Dust, 50 Umbra Shard, 10 Expulsom

I hope you liked this BfA Enchanting guide, congratulations on reaching 175!
