WotLK Classic Enchanting Guide: Fast and Effortless Leveling

Welcome, heroes of Azeroth, to your most efficient WotLK Enchanting guide 1–450

Why Should You Choose Enchanting as Your Profession?

Why Should You Choose Enchanting as Your Profession in WotLK?

Enchanting is a profession that holds great allure for the heroes of Azeroth. After all, who wouldn’t want to enhance their equipment with some handy additional perks to maximize their potential? And so, What could be even more advantageous than becoming an Enchanter and imbuing these stats onto your gear by yourself and for yourself? 

Other than that, in WotLK Classic, each profession offers its owner a unique, significant boost. In this case, you can only receive a substantial increase of +30 Stamina, +23 Spell Power, or +40 Attack Power if you are an Enchanter. Non-enchanters, unfortunately, aren’t eligible for such benefits.

Apart from the mentioned advantages, being an Enchanter in WotLK also proves to be a lucrative profession in terms of financial gains. The demand for the enchanted gear is always high. And so, Enchanters have the opportunity to earn a hefty amount of gold by selling their crafts in the Auction House. 

If you are starting out on your path of becoming a high-level Enchanter, this WotLK Enchanting guide is your key to unlocking the quickest and most efficient path to leveling up your profession

In addition, unlike the other professions, Enchanting and Tailoring are the only two that don’t require time-consuming Gathering of materials. And if you keep reading, you will find that by finding the best profession to pair with Enchanting, you can self-sustain your material needs.

What Is the Best Combo with Enchanting in WoW?

What Is the Best Combo with Enchanting in WoW?

The best combo with Enchanting in WoW is Tailoring. This is one of the most potent combinations of all time, especially for cloth wearers. This synergy pairing offers a unique advantage by enabling players to use one profession to level up the other. You can swiftly advance your Enchanting level by applying enchantments to your Tailoring products. Also, Disenchanting your Tailoring creations yields valuable materials essential for Enchanting.

This allows you to simultaneously progress in both professions, saving precious time and effort. Moreover, the formidable impact of embracing Enchanting and Tailoring extends beyond mere convenience. The effects they bring will significantly boost your character’s power.

Leveling Enchanting

And now, it’s time for the main dish. Below, you will discover a comprehensive WotLK Enchanting guide that will let you advance through as many levels with the least materials needed as possible. From level:


Note: Blood Elf characters have +10 Enchanting skills because of their passive Arcane Affinity. An extra 10 Enchanting skills mean recipes stay orange for 10 more points, so you can save a lot of gold by doing lower-level recipes for 10 more points.

Journeyman Enchanting

Once you have reached level 10, visit your Enchanting trainer and learn Journeyman Enchanting.


Expert Enchanting

Once you have reached level 20, visit your Enchanting trainer and learn Expert Enchanting


Artisan Enchanting

Once you have reached level 35, visit your Enchanting trainer and learn Artisan Enchanting


Try to hunt for Formula: Enchant Bracer – Greater Stamina at the Auction House. It’s a random world drop, but this recipe is the best to level Enchanting from 245 to 265 or even 285.

The Burning Crusade Enchanting

Master Enchanting


Once you have reached level 50, visit one of the trainers at Outland and learn Master Enchanting.



6x Bracer – Brawn — 36 Arcane Dust


16x Gloves – Assault — 128 Arcane Dust

This recipe will be yellow between 20-30, so you might need to make more.

Alternative recipe:

If 100x Arcane Dust is more expensive than 20x Greater Planar Essence then you should make Chest – Major Spirit between 320-330.

10x Chest – Major Spirit — 20 Greater Planar Essence


5x Shield – Major Stamina — 75 Arcane Dust

The recipe is sold by Madame Ruby at Shattrath City. You should also buy Formula: Superior Wizard Oil while you are there. Both of them are limited supply items, so if someone bought them before you, you have to wait for them to respawn. (5-10minutes)

Alternative recipe:

6x Chest – Major Spirit — 12 Greater Planar Essence

You might have to make a few more to reach 335.

Blood Elf Only 335–345:

There is an alternative cheap method for the 335-345 part, but only Blood Elves can benefit from it.

Their racial passive skill Arcane Affinity allows them to gain ten free skill-ups by converting a Large Prismatic Shard into three Small Prismatic Shard and back again.

Only the conversion from one Large Prismatic Shard to three Small Prismatic Shards is affected by this. Therefore, you will only have the chance to gain skill-ups half of the time (since the other half of the time, you’ll be converting back to three Small Prismatic Shards). The recipe will be grey, and you won’t gain skill points for every craft. The chance of gaining skill points is very low. It will probably take 10-15 minutes to gain the 10 free skill points.

The Formula: Large Prismatic Shard is sold by these NPCs, and the Small Prismatic Shard recipe is taught by your trainer. 


5x Shield – Resilience — 5 Large Prismatic Shard, 20 Lesser Planar Essence

You can keep making Shield – Major Stamina if Large Prismatic Shard is too expensive.


15x Superior Wizard Oil — 45 Arcane Dust, 15 Nightmare Vine, 15 Imbued Vial

The recipe is sold by Madame Ruby at Shattrath City. It’s yellow already when you learn it, so you might need to make a few more.

You can buy Imbued Vials from trade supply or alchemy supply vendors.

Alternative recipe:

Make more Shield – Resilience or switch to the next recipe if you don’t have Nightmare Vine.


1x Runed Adamantite Rod — 1 Adamantite Rod, 1 Primal Might, 8 Greater Planar Essence, 8 Large Prismatic Shard

The Formula: Runed Adamantite Rod is sold by Rungor in Terrokar Forest at Stonebreaker Hold and Vodesiin in Hellfire Penninsula at the Temple of Telhamat.

WotLK Enchanting

Both factions can also learn it from Enchanter Nalthanis at Dalaran.
