Leveling WotLK Jewelcrafting

Draenei characters have +5 Jewelcrafting skills because of their passive Gemcutting. An extra 5 Jewelcrafting skill means recipes stay orange for 5 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.

Prospecting

Once you reach Jewelcrafting 20, you can learn the Prospecting ability from your trainer. This will allow you to convert 5 raw ores into gems. For information on prospecting yield from each ore, please see my separate guide:

Prospecting Table for TBC Classic

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

71x Mithril Filigree - 142 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

9x Solid Stone Statue - 90 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:

Master Jewelcrafting (300-350)

You can learn the Master Jewelcrafting skill from Kalaen at Thrallmar and Tatiana at Honor Hold. (Requires level 50)

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

12x Mercurial Adamantite - 48 Adamantite Powder (prospect 240 Adamantite Ore), 12 Primal Earth

Save the 12x Mercurial Adamantite. 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

12x Heavy Adamantite Ring - 12 Adamantite Bar, 12 Mercurial Adamantite

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

WotLK Classic Jewelcrafting (350-450)

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

Horde:

Alliance:

Both factions can also learn it from Timothy Jones at Dalaran.

350 - 395

There are like 50 new gem recipes you can learn from your trainer, so it would be hard to list all of them here. Go to your trainer, learn one from each color, or just one color if you have a lot of gems from one color.

Buy around 60 from the following gems: Bloodstone, Chalcedony, Dark Jade, Huge Citrine, Shadow Crystal, Sun Crystal (don't have to be the same color)

Make around 60x uncommon gems until you reach 395.

395 - 400

Make 5 from any of the following:

These are all yellow recipes, so you might have to make more than 5.

400 - 420

Make around 23 from one of the following:

You might have to make more than 23.

420 - 450

There are three good ways to level from 420 to 450.

Meta Gems

I think leveling with meta gems is the best because you can probably sell most of them at the Auction House, so you can make some of your gold back (or maybe all of your gold, depending on raw mat prices)

You will need around 35x Earthsiege Diamond or Skyflare Diamond.

You can learn some of the meta gem recipes from your trainer, but most of them are sold by Tiffany Cartier in Dalaran. Some of them are dropped by bosses and mobs around Northrend.

Dream Signet

If you don't want to bother selling meta gems at the Auction House, making Dream Signet will probably be the cheapest way to reach 450.

35x Dream Signet - 35 Titanium Bar, 35 Forest Emerald, 35 Dream Shard

Icy Prism

Icy Prism gives skill points all the way up to 450. BUT, it has a 20-hour cooldown.

If you don't really care about reaching 450 as fast as possible, you can make Icy Prism daily for a month and you will get to 450 for a very low cost since you will be able to sell the gems you loot from it and get most of your gold back.


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!
