WoW Enchanting Leveling Guide 1 - 800

This Enchanting leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to level your Enchanting skill up from 1 to 800.

Updated for Legion patch 7.0.3

You will spend a lot of gold on this profession if you want to buy every materials from the Auction House. It depends on the realm economy, but can cost up to thousands of gold.

Enchanting goes well with Tailoring because you don't need a gathering profession to support either of these. And if you level Tailoring and Enchanting at the same time, you can disenchant most of the cloths you make.

If you are low on gold, I recommend you to try this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make loads of gold.

If you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt, I recommend you to use a leveling guide. You can level your character to level 110 in 7 days with this guide.

Enchanting Leveling Guide 1 - 50

First, let's see which items gives what when you disenchant it. Go to my Disenchanting Guide to find more information about disenchanting.

Visit any trainer in the main cities of old Azeroth - just ask a guard, and learn Apprentice Enchanting.

Check out my Enchanting guide 1-110. It's about leveling Enchanting from 1 to 110 with almost no cost at all.

I also recommend you to go to the Auction House right now and search for the following recipe: [Formula: Enchant Bracer - Greater Stamina]

You should put most enchants on a Vellum if you can afford it, then try to sell the enchant at the Auction House. You can buy [Enchanting Vellum] from the Enchanting Supply vendors near your trainer.

50 - 135

Learn Enchanting Journeyman.

  • 90-100
    10 x [Enchant Bracer: Minor Stamina] - 30 Strange Dust
  • If the Strange Dust is cheap and the Greater Magic Essence is too expensive on your realm, you can make this Enchant up to 120.

  • 100-110
    10 x [Greater Magic Wand] - 10 Simple Wood, 10 Greater Magic Essence
  • You can buy Simple Wood from Enchanting Supply vendors near your trainer, or any Generals Goods vendor.

135 - 220

Learn Enchanting Expert.

  • 155-185
    40 x [Enchant Bracer - Lesser Strength] 80 Soul Dust

    Read the 110-135 part if you started the guide from this point. There is a location listed there for this recipe.

    This one turns yellow at 165, however if 2 Soul Dust is a lot cheaper than 1 Lesser Mystic Essence, keep making these until 185. If it's not then at 165 switch to:

220 - 275

Learn Enchanting Artisan.

  • 265-300
    40 x [Enchant Shield: Greater Stamina] - 200 Dream Dust

    Recipe location - Watch out! This one binds when picked up. Don't make the mistake of trying to buy it with an alt and mail it. It's also a limited supply item, this means you have to wait if someone bought it before you.

  • Check the Auction House and if 2 [Small Brilliant Shard] is cheaper than 5 [Dream Dust], then go to Winterspring and find Qia, then buy the recipe [Formula: Enchant Chest - Major Health], and make the enchant until you run out of Shards, or until you reach 300. The recipe requires Enchanting skill 275 to learn, so you will need some Dream Dust between 265-275 to make the Shield enchant.

300 - 350

Visit your trainer and learn Enchanting Master.

  • 320-330

    12 x [Enchant Gloves - Assault] - 96 Arcane Dust

    If Arcane Dust is expensive on your realm, or you don't want to level with a yellow recipe because it's based on luck how many skill points you gain, then you should make the following recipe:

    10 x [Enchant Chest - Major Versatility] - 20 Greater Planar Essence

  • 330-335
    5 x [Enchant Shield - Major Stamina] - 75 Arcane Dust

    Recipe sold by Madame Ruby at Shattrath City. While you are here, you should also buy the next two recipe in the guide. Do not leave Outland until you bought them. Just click on the links below and see where they are. Superior Wizard Oil is also sold by Madame Ruby.

  • 335-340
    5 x [Enchant Shield - Resilience] - 5 Large Prismatic Shard, 20 Lesser Planar Essence

    There is an alternative really cheap method, but only Blood Elves can benefit from it. Due to their Racial Ability it allows them to gain ten free skill ups by converting a Large Prismatic Shard into three Small Prismatic Shards and back again. Only the conversion from one Large Prismatic Shard to three Small Prismatic Shards is effected 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). This can make for a fairly lengthy session in gaining your ten free levels.

    What you need:
    [Formula: Large Prismatic Shard] - Sold by these NPCS.
    [Formula: Small Prismatic Shard] - You learn this from your trainer.

  • 340-350
    15 x [Superior Wizard Oil] - 45 Arcane Dust, 15 Nightmare Vine, 15 Crystal Vial - Recipe location

    You can buy Crystal Vial from trade supply, or alchemy supply vendors.

    This recipe is yellow already when you learn it, so you might need to make 14-16.

350 - 425

Visit your trainer and learn Enchanting Grand Master.

  • 390-405
    15 x [Abyssal Shatter] - 15 Abyss Crystal
  • Use the dusts and essences you get from shattering the crystals to level enchanting up to 425, then sell the rest at the Auction House. If your level is high enough, you can get [Abyss Crystal] from old raid instances at Northrend. 10man is a lot easier, but I recommend Naxxramas 25man if you can handle it. (25man drops 4 epic instead of 2)

    Make the enchants below if you can't farm or buy [Abyss Crystal]

425 - 500

Visit your trainer and learn Enchanting Illustrious Grand Master.

From this point you should really try to put most enchants on a Vellum, then try to sell the enchant at the Auction House.

  • 485-490
    5 x [Enchant Gloves - Greater Haste] - 25 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Greater Celestial Essence

    You can also start making the next recipe in the guide if you want to, and skip this part. It depends on the price of Greater Celestial Essence.

Check your Calendar in-game to see if the Darkmoon Faire is open, the event starts at 00:01 on the Sunday before the 1st Monday of each month.

You can gain +5 skill points by completing a single quest. Click here to read more about the quests.

500 - 600

Visit your trainer and learn Zen Enchanting.

600 - 700

Things change a bit in Warlords of Draenor because you no longer learn the next rank from your trainer. You have to get a [Draenor Enchanting] scroll to upgrade your maximum Enchanting skill to 700. This scroll will also teach you a few basic recipes which you will use to level Enchanting.

There are three ways to obtain this scroll:

Work Orders

Work orders convert 5 x [Draenic Dust] to 2 x [Fractured Temporal Crystal], or 4 if you have a follower in your building. You can read more about followers if you read my Guide to Followers with Profession Traits. One work order takes 4 hour to complete, but you can queue up a bunch of work orders, so you don't have to log in every 4 hours.

What you need to know is that every recipe between 625-700 that you can use to level require [Fractured Temporal Crystal]. You have to complete work orders, and you also have to make your daily profession cooldown [Temporal Crystal] every day to get these crystals.

Obtaining new recipes

The recipes your learned from the scroll are only good for leveling between 1-625. You have to purchase new recipe at the Enchanter's Study to level up to 700.

When you learn [Draenor Enchanting], you get the recipe [Secrets of Draenor Enchanting]. This is needed to create the currency that you can use to buy new recipes, but you can only make one from this currency each day.

Leveling 600-700

  • 600-613
    13 x [Luminous Shard] - 260 Draenic Dust

    Keep 12 these, you will use them the next step.

Legion 700 - 800

This part requires level 100.

First, visit your Enchanting trainer Enchanter Nalthanis at Dalaran. Just walk up to a guard in the city, you can ask them where the Enchanting trainer is located.

After you learn Enchanting, pick up the quest Some Enchanted Evening from Enchanter Nalthanis.

The quest reward is [Legion Enchanter].

Unlocking recipes

Most Enchanting recipes are unlocked by doing quests. These quests are given by one of the NPCs around your trainer.

You should get to level 110 and finish every Enchanting quest before you continue this guide.

There are 29 Enchanting quest in total, they are pretty straight forward, so I will not write down the details of every quests. Some of the quests lead you to dungeons but you can finish every quest easily in a few hours if you start them at 110, otherwise you will have to wait because later quests have level requirement.

The last quest is Down to the Core, and the reward is the 4 enchant that you will use between 760 - 800.

Recipe ranks

Most Legion recipes now have 3 ranks. Higher rank recipes allow you to craft an item for fewer materials. Therefore, you should only use rank 3 recipes when you can.

Rank 3 recipes comes from different sources like Vendors, World Quests, Reputation, dungeon drops, and even rated battleground wins.

If you hover over the little stars in your spellbook, you can see the source of the next rank for the selected recipe.

Unlocking World Quests

Some of the of the rank 3 recipes comes from World Quests. To get these quests, you must first complete Uniting the Isles by reaching friendly reputation with every Legion faction. You can get this quest from Archmage Khadgar (requires level 110).

After you unlocked the quests, you have to level your Enchanting to at least 100 to unlock the profession World quests.

700 - 740

There are 4 enchants that you can make:

40 x [Rank 3 - Word of Critical Strike] - 400 x [Arkhana]
40 x [Rank 3 - Word of Haste] - 400 x [Arkhana]
40 x [Rank 3 - Word of Mastery] - 400 x [Arkhana]
40 x [Rank 3 - Word of Versatility] - 400 x [Arkhana]

You can buy the Rank 2 recipes from Ildine Sorrowspear at Dalaran near your Trainer.

Three of the Rank 3 recipes comes from World Quests, but The World quests you get are randomly generated, so you might not get one right away and have to wait even a few days until one pops up.

You can get the [Formula: Enchant Ring - Word of Versatility - Rank 3] recipe from Sylvia Hartshorn if you honored with the Dreamweavers.

740 - 780

Make 40 from these:

40 x [Rank 3 - Binding of Critical Strike] - 160 x [Chaos Crystal], 1400 x [Arkhana]
40 x [Rank 3 - Binding of Haste] - 160 x [Chaos Crystal], 1400 x [Arkhana]
40 x [Rank 3 - Binding of Mastery] - 160 x [Chaos Crystal], 1400 x [Arkhana]
40 x [Rank 3 - Binding of Versatility] - 160 x [Chaos Crystal], 1400 x [Arkhana]

You can buy the Rank 2 recipes from Ildine Sorrowspear at Dalaran near your Trainer.

Rank 3 recipes:

780 - 800

You will make the same recipes as in the previous step, but all of them will be yellow between 780-790, and green between 790-800. This means you won't get skill points for every craft, so the number of recipes you need to craft will be different for everyone. You will probably have to craft between 25-35.

25 x [One of the previous recipes] - - 100 x [Chaos Crystal], 875 x [Arkhana]

Darkmoon Faire

You should check your Calendar in-game to see if the Darkmoon Faire is open, the event starts at 00:01 on the Sunday before the 1st Monday of each month.

You can gain +5 skill points by completing a single quest (use it at 795). Click here to read more about the quests.

I hope you liked this Enchanting guide, congratulations on reaching 800!
