Welcome, heroes of Azeroth, to your most efficient WotLK Tailoring guide from level 1 to 450. 

Why Should You Choose Tailoring as Your Profession?

Why Should You Choose Tailoring as Your Profession in WotLK?

Tailoring involves the art of transforming various raw materials, most notably cloth, into a range of various commodities. Among the creations woven by tailors are cloth armor, small and large inventory bags, and even the marvelous spectacle of woven flying mounts

Tailors possess the exclusive ability to embellish garments with embroidery. You can embroider your legs and cloaks to gain additional stats. However, all of them are connected to a proc effect. 

In WotLK Classic, each profession offers its owner a unique, significant boost. In this case, while leg embroidery is tradable to other characters, cloak embroidery is bound to Tailors only. Non-tailors, unfortunately, aren’t eligible for such benefits. 

Tailoring Cloak Enchants: 

Tailoring also offers its practitioners a gold mine by selling their creations in the Auction House. Who can resist a 20-slot bag at an affordable price?

In addition, unlike the other professions, Tailoring and Enchanting 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 Tailoring, you can self-sustain your material needs.

What Is the Best Combo with Tailoring in WoW?

What Is the Best Combo with Tailoring in WoW?

The best combo with Tailoring in WoW is Enchanting. This is one of the most potent combinations of all time, especially for cloth wearers. This synergy pairing offers a unique advantage, 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 Tailoring and Enchanting extends beyond mere convenience. The effects they bring will significantly boost your character’s power.
