TBC Classic Jewelcrafting leveling guide 1-375 for Burning Crusade Classic

This TBC Classic Jewelcrafting leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Jewelcrafting skill up from 1 to 375 as inexpensively as possible in Burning Crusade Classic. 

Jewelcrafting uses a lot of ores, so I recommend leveling this profession together with Mining.

Approximate materials required

This is the list of the approximate materials required to level Jewelcrafting up to 375.

Classic (1-300)

TBC (300-375)

TBC Jewelcrafting trainers

You can learn Jewelcrafting from any of these NPCs below. Just click on any of these links below to see the trainer's exact location. You can also walk up to a guard in any city and ask where the Jewelcrafting trainer is, then the trainer will be marked with a red flag on your map.

Azeroth (1-300)

  • Horde: Kalinda in Silvermoon City.
  • Alliance:Farii in The Exodar.

Outland (300-375)

You can learn the new TBC Jewelcrafting skill from the Master Jewelcrafting trainers in Hellfire Peninsula. Horde players can learn it from Kalaen at Thrallmar and Alliance players can learn it from Tatiana at Honor Hold.

Leveling TBC Jewelcrafting

Draenei characters have +10 Jewelcrafting skills because of their passive Gemcutting. An extra 10 Jewelcrafting 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.

1 - 35

Buy a Jeweler's Kit from the Jewelcrafting Supplies vendor near your trainer or General/Trade Goods vendors.

55x Delicate Copper Wire - 110 Copper Bar

Keep these because you will need them later. But you can stop making them when you reach 35 and only make more if you need it.

35 - 50

15x Tigerseye Band - 15 Tigerseye, 15 Delicate Copper Wire

You can also make 15x Malachite Pendant.

Journeyman Jewelcrafting

Visit your trainer and learn Journeyman Jewelcrafting. (Requires level 10)

50 - 80

50x Bronze Setting - 100 Bronze Bar

Save these. You will need some of them later.

80 - 100

20x Gloom Band - 20 Bronze Setting, 40 Shadowgem, 40 Delicate Copper Wire

Alternative recipes:

100 - 110

10x Ring of Twilight Shadows - 20 Shadowgem, 20 Bronze Bar

You can also continue to make Ring of Silver Might, or you can switch to Heavy Jade Ring at 105 if you have some Jade.

110 - 120

10x Heavy Stone Statue - 80 Heavy Stone

If Heavy Stone is cheap, then you can make this one up to 130. However, if it's actually really expensive, then you can keep making Heavy Jade Ring and Ring of Twilight Shadows.

120 - 150

30x Pendant of the Agate Shield - 30 Moss Agate, 30 Bronze Settings

The recipe is sold by Jandia in Thousand Needles at Freewind Post and by Neal Allen in Wetlands at Menethil Harbor. It's a limited supply recipe, so you have to wait for it to respawn if someone bought it before you. I don't know the exact respawn timer, but it's not that long (5-10 minutes). You can also buy it from the Auction House if you don't want to camp the NPC.

Alternative recipes:

Make Amulet of the Moon if 2x Lesser Moonstone is cheaper than one Moss Agate. But this recipe turns yellow at 140, so you might need to make more than 30 of these.

If you prospected your own ores, you probably have both gems, so you should make Amulet of the Moon first because it turns yellow sooner, then switch to Pendant of the Agate Shield at around 140.

The Design: Amulet of the Moon is sold by these NPCs. This is also a limited supply recipe, so you have to wait for it to respawn if someone bought it before you. I don't know the exact respawn timer, but it's not that long (5-10 minutes)

Alternatives if players camp the vendors:

Many players on high-population realms may camp these patterns at the start of the expansion and try to sell them for a lot of gold. (The re-stock time is only 5-10 minutes as far as I know). You can use these alternative recipes below.

Expert Jewelcrafting

Visit your trainer and learn Expert Jewelcrafting. (Requires level 20)

150 - 180

70x Mithril Filigree - 140 Mithril Bar

Keep these. You will need them later. (might not need all of them if you make alternative recipes)

This recipe will be yellow for the last few points, so you probably won't end at exactly 180, but that doesn't really matter. You can still go to the next step after making around 55-60 of these.

180 - 185

8x Solid Stone Statue - 80 Solid Stone

If you can get cheap Solid Stones, then you could make this one up to 190.

Alternative recipes:

Make a few Blazing Citrine Ring if you have some Citrine left from prospecting.

The Design: Blazing Citrine Ring is sold by Kireena in Desolace and by Micha Yance in Hillsbrad. It's a limited supply recipe, so you have to wait for it to respawn if someone bought it before you. I don't know the exact respawn timer, but it's not that long (5-10 minutes). But you can also buy it from the Auction House if you don't want to camp the NPC.

185 - 210

28x Engraved Truesilver Ring - 28 Truesilver Bar, 56 Mithril Filigree

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

Alternative recipes:

25x Citrine Ring of Rapid Healing - 25 Citrine, 50 Elemental Water, 50 Mithril Bar

You can make a few Blazing Citrine Ring (up to around 195) if you still have some Citrine left, but Elemental Water is too expensive. (check the 180-185 part for the recipe location).

210 - 220

10x Aquamarine Signet - 30 Aquamarine, 40 Flask of Mojo

Flask of Mojo drops from most level 40-47 Trolls. You can farm them inside/outside Zul'Farrak, troll camps in Hinterlands, and the level 39+ troll camp in Stranglethorn Vale.

220 - 225

5x Aquamarine Pendant of the Warrior - 5 Aquamarine, 15 Mithril Filigree

Artisan Jewelcrafting

Visit your trainer and learn Artisan Jewelcrafting. (Requires level 35)

225 - 250

56x Thorium Setting - 56 Thorium Bar

Stop making these at 250 and only make more if you need them. (you will need around 56)

250 - 260

10x Ruby Pendant of Fire - 10 Star Ruby, 10 Thorium Setting

260 - 281

21x Simple Opal Ring - 21 Large Opal, 21 Thorium Setting

If you have a lot of Azerothian Diamond left, or if it's cheaper than Large Opal, then you can start crafting Diamond Focus Ring when you reach 265. But make sure to keep at least 20x Azerothian Diamond for the next step.

Alternative recipe:

If Azerothian Diamond and Large Opal cost around twice as much as one Star Ruby, then you should continue making Ruby Pendant of Fire up to 275.

281 - 295

20x Diamond Focus Ring - 20 Azerothian Diamond, 20 Thorium Setting

295 - 300

5x Emerald Lion Ring - 10 Huge Emerald, 5 Thorium Setting

Alternatives recipes:

Burning Crusade Classic (300-375)

You can learn the new TBC Jewelcrafting skill from the Master Jewelcrafting trainers in Hellfire Peninsula. Horde players can learn it from Kalaen at Thrallmar and Alliance players can learn it from Tatiana at Honor Hold.

300 - 320

Cut around 30 from one of these gems:

The recipes are sold by Kalaen / Tatiana in Hellfire Peninsula.

320 - 325

Make around 5-7 from one of these:

The recipes are sold by Kalaen / Tatiana in Hellfire Peninsula.

325 - 335

10x Mercurial Adamantite - 40 Adamantite Powder (prospect 200 Adamantite Ore), 10 Primal Earth

Save these. You will need them at 340.

You can go to the next part even if you didn't reach 335, but you will have to make a few more gems.

335 - 340

Make 5-10 from any of the following gems.

340 - 350

10x Heavy Adamantite Ring - 10 Adamantite Bar, 10 Mercurial Adamantite

You can continue to make the gems above if you didn't reach 350, or you can make a few more rings.

350 - 355

Every recipe that you can use to level to 355 (and 360) are all world drops with a very low drop chance, so you can't directly farm these. You have to buy them from the Auction House.

Gem designs

There are like 20-30 World Drops recipes. It's difficult to recommend exactly one recipe because the prices of raw gems/recipes will differ on each realm. You should check the price of the raw gems and the recipe's cost, and then you can decide which one is the cheapest. Living Ruby will probably be the most expensive and Talasite the cheapest.

Every recipe has the raw gem name in it, so every available recipe will pop up if you search for the raw gem names at the Auction House.

Check the recipes searching for these at the Auction House:

Example: Design: Rigid Star of Elune

355 - 360

You can keep making gems, but now you can also try to buy these two:

Make any of these depending on which recipes you got:

7-10x [Rare Gem recipe you bought] 7-10 from one of these: Living Ruby, Nightseye, Noble Topaz,
Star of Elune, Talasite, Dawnstone.
5x Delicate Eternium Ring 5x Eternium Bar, 25x Mercurial Adamantite
5x Thick Felsteel Necklace 10x Felsteel Bar, 15x Mercurial Adamantite

360 - 365

You can keep making gems or the previous two recipes. However, the gem recipes are close to turning green at this point, so you will probably have to make more than 10 for these 5 skill points.

World drop recipes

I would recommend trying to buy the Design: Braided Eternium Chain. It's the cheapest recipe that you can use to level. (even up to 375)

Reputation recipes

There are also a few recipes that you can buy from reputation vendors.

10-15x [Rare Gem] 10-15 from one of these: Living Ruby, Nightseye,
Noble Topaz,Star of Elune, Talasite, Dawnstone.
5x Delicate Eternium Ring 5x Eternium Bar, 25x Mercurial Adamantite
5x Thick Felsteel Necklace 10x Felsteel Bar, 15x Mercurial Adamantite
5x Braided Eternium Chain 10x Eternium Bar, 15x Mercurial Adamantite
5x Pendant of Shadow's End 10x Felsteel Bar, 30x Primal Life, 20x Primal Shadow,
5x Mercurial Adamantite
5x Pendant of Withering 10x Felsteel Bar, 30x Primal Shadow, 20x Primal Life,
5x Mercurial Adamantite
5x Ring of Arcane Shielding 10x Eternium Bar, 40x Primal Mana

365 - 375

I recommend finishing the last 10 points with meta gem recipes. You will need 10x Earthstorm Diamond or 10x Skyfire Diamond.
