Leveling Blacksmithing

1 - 75

Journeyman Blacksmithing

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

75 - 125

  • 75 - 90
    35x Coarse Grinding Stone - 70 Coarse Stone

    Save the Coarse Grinding Stones.

    If you didn't reach 90 by making these, you could continue to the next step, but you will need more Copper Bars or make a few more Coarse Grinding Stones.

  • 100 - 105
    5x Silver Rod - 5 Silver Bar, 10 Rough Grinding Stone

    You can also skip this part and make Runed Copper Belt if you don't have any Silver Bar.

Expert Blacksmithing

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

125 - 225

  • 125 - 140
    35x Heavy Grinding Stone - 105 Heavy Stone

    Keep the Heavy Grinding Stones. Make this one up to 150 if Heavy Stone is cheap.

  • 150 - 155
    5x Golden Rod - 5 Gold Bar, 10 Coarse Grinding Stone

Green Dye is sold by Tailoring and Leatherworking supply vendors.

  • 190 - 200
    10x Golden Scale Bracers - 50 Steel Bar, 20 Heavy Grinding Stone

    Alliance players should keep 6 of these. You might need them if you choose Armorsmithing.

  • 200 - 210
    30x Solid Grinding Stone - 120 Solid Stone

    Keep at least 10 of these for the 225-235 part.

    Keep all of them if you bought the Plans: Mithril Spurs, and you will also have to make another 100. (you can make them later too)

Artisan Blacksmithing

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

225 - 235

10x Steel Plate Helm - 140 Steel Bar, 10 Solid Grinding Stone

Horde players should keep 4 of these. You might need them if you choose Armorsmithing.

235 - 250

Buy Plans: Mithril Spurs from the Auction House.

20x Mithril Spurs - 80 Mithril Bar, 60 Solid Grinding Stone

Alternative recipe:

15x Mithril Coif - 150 Mithril Bar, 90 Mageweave Cloth

250 - 260

20x Dense Sharpening Stone - 20 Dense Stone

260 - 270

20x Mithril Spurs - 80 Mithril Bar, 60 Solid Grinding Stone

The recipe will be green for the last 5 points, so it's tough to tell how many you have to craft. You may have to craft a lot more if you are unlucky with the skill gains.

Alternative recipes:

If you couldn't get the Plans: Mithril Spurs recipe, then you can try to buy one of these: Plans: Thorium Bracers, Plans: Thorium Belt, Plans: Radiant Belt.

Recipes from the trainer

You can make these if you cannot get any of the recipes above.

You can get the recipe from the Imperial Plate Belt quest in Tanaris from Derotain Mudsipper. You will need 10x Thorium Bar to complete the quest.

The following two recipes are also from the same NPC, so bring at least 40x Thorium Bar to buy all 3 recipes!

270 - 295

28x Imperial Plate Bracers - 336 Thorium Bar

You can get the Plans: Imperial Plate Bracers after completing the Imperial Plate Bracer quest in Tanaris for Derotain Mudsipper. The quest requires 10x Thorium Bar.

The recipe will be yellow for the last 5 points, so you might have to make a few more. Don't leave before you buy the next recipe! The next recipe is also from the same NPC, so bring at least 30x Thorium Bar to buy the two recipes.

295 - 300

5x Imperial Plate Boots - 90 Thorium Bar

You can get the recipe from the same NPC as the previous one, but this quest requires 20x Thorium Bar.

Master Blacksmithing (300-350)

You can learn the Master Blacksmithing skill in Hellfire Peninsula from Rohok at Thrallmar and Humphry at Honor Hold. (Requires level 50)

300 - 305

7x Fel Weightstone - 7 Fel Iron Bar, 7 Netherweave Cloth

You might need to make more of these because you won't gain a skill point for every craft.

305 - 316

11x Fel Iron Plate Belt - 44 Fel Iron Bar

Make 11x Imperial Plate Boots if 198x Thorium Bar is cheaper than 44x Fel Iron Bar.

316 - 321

5x Fel Iron Chain Gloves - 25 Fel Iron Bar

Make 5x Imperial Plate Chest if 130x Thorium Bar is cheaper than 25x Fel Iron Bar.

You can get the Plans: Imperial Plate Chest recipe from the Imperial Plate Chest quest. It requires 30x Thorium Bar.

321 - 325

4x Fel Iron Plate Boots - 24 Fel Iron Bar

325 - 335

45x Lesser Rune of Warding - 45 Adamantite Bar

It's green for the last 5 points, so 45 is an approximate number. You might need to make more.

335 - 340

7x Fel Iron Chain Tunic - 63 Fel Iron Bar

You might need to make more because the recipe is yellow.

340 - 350

45x Lesser Ward of Shielding - 45 Adamantite Bar

The recipe is sold by Rohok (Horde) at Hellfire Peninsula and by Mari Stonehand (Alliance) at Shadowmoon Valley. It's a limited supply item, so you have to wait if someone bought it before you. (15-60min respawn time).

It's green for the last 5 points, so 45 is an approximate number. You might need to make more or fewer.

WotLK Classic Blacksmithing (350-450)

You can learn the new WotLK Classic Blacksmithing skill from these NPCs below. (Requires level 65)

Horde:

Alliance:

Both factions can also learn it from Alard Schmied at Dalaran.

350 - 416

416 - 425

13x Eternal Belt Buckle - 52 Saronite Bar, 13 Eternal Earth, 13 Eternal Water, 13 Eternal Shadow

There are cheaper alternative recipes that you can make but Eternal Belt Buckle is a very useful item, so you can sell all of them and get most of your gold back.

The recipe will be yellow for the last 5 points, so you might have to make more.

425 - 430

7x Titanium Weapon Chain - 14 Saronite Bar, 7 Titanium Bar

The recipe will be yellow, so you might have to make more.

430 - 435

5x Daunting Handguards - 60 Saronite Bar, 5 Eternal Earth

435 - 445

17x Daunting Legplates - 238 Saronite Bar, 17 Eternal Earth

This recipe will be yellow between 60-70, so you probably have to make more than 15, usually 17-19. You can also make any other armor that requires 14x Saronite Bar and 1x Eternal Water/Fire/Shadow, but Eternal Earth is usually the cheapest.

445 - 450

17x Daunting Legplates - 238 Saronite Bar, 17 Eternal Earth

You will still be making the Daunting Legplates, but the recipe will be green, which means the number of items crafted will vary from person to person. I never had to craft more than 17, but you might get unlucky with skill gains, and you have to craft more.

And like before, you can also make any other armor that requires 14x Saronite Bar and 1x Eternal Water/Fire/Shadow.


Congratulations on reaching 450! Please send feedback about the guide if you think there are parts I could improve or if you found typos, errors, or wrong material numbers!
