WotLK Classic Tailoring Leveling Guide 1-450

This WotLK Classic Tailoring leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way to get your Tailoring skill up from 1 to 450 in Wrath of the Lich King Classic.

I recommend trying Zygor's 1-80 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide will help you to reach level 80 a lot faster.

Tailoring Leveling

1 - 75

You will need around 59x Coarse Thread for the 1-75 part. You can buy them from the Tailoring Supplies vendor near your trainer. When buying from the vendor, use SHIFT + MOUSE CLICK, then type in how many you want. (the maximum amount you can buy at once is 20 for threads and 10 for dyes)

I don't recommend buying all the dyes and thread at once because it will fill up your inventory and you won't have that much bag space to craft items. I'll list the needed Dyes and Thread for each part separately.

  • 1 - 45
    102x Bolt of Linen Cloth - 204 Linen Cloth

    Stop making these if you reach 45 and only make more if you need them.

  • 40 - 67
    35x Linen Belt - 35 Bolt of Linen Cloth, 35 Coarse Thread

Journeyman Tailoring

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

You will need around 33x Fine Thread for the 75-125 part. You can vendor any remaining Coarse Thread, you won't need them.

75 - 125

  • 100 - 110
    13x Simple Kilt - 52 Bolt of Linen Cloth, 13 Fine Thread

    You might have to make a few more from this if you were really unlucky with the skill gains.

Expert Tailoring

Visit your trained and learn Expert Tailoring. (Requires level 20)

You will need 36x Blue Dye, 83x Fine Thread, 10x Bleach, 40x Red Dye for the 125-205 part.

125 - 205

  • 145 - 160
    18x Azure Silk Hood - 36 Bolt of Silk Cloth, 36 Blue Dye, 18 Fine Thread

    You might have to make a few more if you didn't reach 160.

  • 185 - 205

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

You will need 20x Silken Thread, 71x Heavy Silken Thread, 20x Red Dye, 5x Orange Dye and 50x Rune Thread for the 205-300 part.

205 - 300

  • 260 - 280
    25x Runecloth Belt - 75 Bolt of Runecloth, 25 Rune Thread

    The recipe goes yellow at 270, you might have to make a few more.

  • 280 - 300
    25x Runecloth Gloves - 125 Bolt of Runecloth, 50 Rune Thread

    The recipes will be yellow at 290, so you might have to make a few more.

Rune Threads are sold by your trainer.

300 - 350

  • 300 - 325
    140x Bolt of Netherweave - 700 Netherweave Cloth

    You will use all of these later so it's better to make all of them now for free skill points.

  • 331 - 336
    5x Netherweave Pants - 30 Bolt of Netherweave, 5 Rune Thread

    This recipe is taught by your trainer, so you have to go back.

  • 336 - 346

    The recipe is sold by Eiin in Shattrath City.

Tailoring Specializations

Once you reach level 60 and Tailoring skill 350, you may begin a quest to learn one of three specializations: Mooncloth Tailoring, Shadoweave Tailoring, or Spellfire Tailoring.

For information on how to choose a specialization, please see my separate guide:

Tailoring Specializations in WotLK Classic

WotLK Classic Tailoring (350-450)

You can learn the new WotLK Classic Tailoring skill from these NPCS:



Both factions can also learn it from Charles Worth at Dalaran.

350 - 440

  • 350 - 375
    50x Bolt of Frostweave - 250 Frostweave Cloth

    Crafting around 50 should get you to 375, but in total, you will need more than 600 to reach 440. (3000x Frostweave Cloth).

    If you only want to reach 420 to get the Tailoring Cloak Enchants, you will need around 350. (1750x Frostweave Cloth)

  • 400 - 405
    20x Bolt of Imbued Frostweave - 40 Bolt of Frostweave, 40 Infinite Dust

    These are used in every high-level Tailoring recipe, so it's better to make them now. Making around 10-20 should get you to 405, but you will need around 120 in total if you want to reach 440. You will need 240 Bolt of Frostweave and 240 Infinite Dust to create 120.

  • 425 - 440
    20x Frostweave Bag - 120 Bolt of Imbued Frostweave

    The recipe will be yellow for the last 10 points. You usually have to make around 20-23 to reach 440.

440 - 450

Frostweave Bags

Crafting Frostweave Bag gives skill points until 450 and is probably the cheapest way to reach 450. The recipe will be green, so it's hard to tell how many you have to craft, but you will probably have to make around 30-40.

Crafting Epic Items

Crafting epic items will require more expensive materials, but you can probably sell most of them at the Auction House. It depends on your realm.

Make 6 from these gloves until Tailoring 446:

Make 4 from these chests to reach 450:
