Starting the Quests

To get the recipes for these new items, you will have to go through various multi-step quests chains depending on which profession you want to work on. These quests will take you through the process of creating your tool and give you some backstory on where the recipes come from. Most of the quests are really straightforward and easy so I'll skip explaining each quests. Just follow your quest log and check the markers on your map.

You’ll need to have reached level 120 and be at skill level 150 (Kul Tiran or Zandalari) in your chosen crafting profession, before you can start the quests.

To get started on your profession quest line, speak with your profession traniner to accept the starting quest. You can walk up to a guard in Dazar'alor or Boralus then ask where your profession trainer is located. This will place a red marker on your map at the trainer's location.
