Enchanting 1 - 50

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.

  • 1-2

1 x [Runed Copper Rod] - 1 Copper Rod, 1 Strange Dust, 1 Lesser Magic Essence

  • 2-50
    Disenchanting green quality items

or

48 x [Enchant Bracer: Minor Health] - 48 Strange Dust


50 - 135

Learn Enchanting Journeyman.

  • 50-90
    55 x [Enchant Bracer: Minor Health] - 55 Strange Dust
  • 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.

  • 110-135

Go to Stonetalon Mountains if you are a Horde player and find Kulwia, for Alliance players go to Ashenvale and find Dalria. After you found the NPC, buy these two recipes: [Enchant Bracer - Lesser Strength] -[Enchant Cloak: Minor Agility]

25 x [Enchant Cloak: Minor Agility] - 25 Lesser Astral Essence


135 - 220

Learn Enchanting Expert.

  • 135-155
    20 x [Enchant Bracer - Lesser Stamina] - 40 Soul Dust
  • 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:

    • 165-185
      20 x [Enchant Bracer: Spirit] - 20 Lesser Mystic Essence
  • 185-220
    40 x [Enchant Bracer: Strength] - 40 Vision Dust

220 - 275

Learn Enchanting Artisan.

  • 220-225
    5 x [Enchant Cloak: Greater Defense] - 15 Vision Dust

If Lesser Nether Essence is too expensive, make this until 230.

  • 225-230
    5 x [Enchant Gloves: Agility] - 5 Lesser Nether Essence, 5 Vision Dust
  • 230-235
    5 x [Enchant Boots - Stamina] - 25 Vision Dust
  • 235-240
    5 x [Enchant Chest: Superior Health] - 30 Vision Dust
  • 240-250
    10 x [Enchant Boots - Lesser Accuracy] - 40 Vision Dust, 10 Lesser Nether Essence

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.

The recipe is called Enchant Bracer Greater Stamina, not Boots.

  • 250-260
    10 x [Lesser Mana Oil] - 30 Dream Dust, 20 Purple Lotus, 10 Crystal Vial

Recipe sold by Kania at Silithus.

You can make [Enchanted Thorium Bar] as an alternative if you don't have Purple Lotus. The recipe will be yellow when you learn it and it turns green at 255, but it is pretty cheap to make. You can also just continue to make [Enchant Boots - Lesser Accuracy] up to 260.

  • 260-265
    5 x [Enchant Bracer - Greater Intellect] - 15 Lesser Eternal Essence
  • 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.

  • 300-310
    10 x [Enchant Bracer: Lesser Assault] - 60 Arcane Dust
  • 310-320
    10 x [Enchant Bracer - Brawn] - 60 Arcane Dust
  • 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 Spirit] - 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

 

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.

  • 350-375
    25 x [Enchant Cloak - Speed] - 75 Infinite Dust
  • 375-390
    15 x [Enchant Gloves - Gatherer] - 15 Greater Cosmic Essence

Make [Enchant Bracers - Assault] and [Enchant Bracers - Exceptional Intellect] if 5 Infinite Dust is cheaper than 1 Greater Cosmic Essence.

  • 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]

    • 390-396
      3 x [Enchant Boots - Icewalker] - 24 Infinite Dust, 3 Crystallized Water
    • 396-405
      3 x [Enchant Cloak - Superior Agility] - 27 Infinite Dust
  • 405-411
    2 x [Enchant Gloves - Expertise] - 24 Infinite Dust
  • 411-423
    3 x [Enchant Gloves - Precision] - 12 Greater Cosmic Essence
  • 423-426
    1 x [Enchant Cloak - Major Agility] - 3 Infinite Dust, 3 Dream Shard

Make this alternative recipe if you don't have dream shard: [Enchant Chest - Greater Mana Restoration]


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.

  • 426-440
    14 x [Enchant Boots - Earthen Vitality] - 28 Hypnotic Dust

You could also make [Enchant Chest - Mighty Stats] if Lesser Celestial Essence is cheaper than Hypnotic Dust. Make a few [Enchant Gloves - Mastery] just to mix up the number of enchants you make, so it will be easier to sell them.

  • 440-455
    15 x [Enchant Cloak - Lesser Power] - 45 Hypnotic Dust
  • 455-465
    10 x [Enchant Gloves - Haste] - 40 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Lesser Celestial Essence
  • 465-475
    10 x [Enchant Cloak - Intellect] - 60 Hypnotic Dust

Make a few [Enchant Chest - Stamina] if you are selling the enchants.

If [Heavenly Shards] are cheap on your realm, then you can try leveling with [Enchant Ring - Intellect] up to 495

  • 475-480
    5 x [Enchant Gloves - Exceptional Strength] - 15 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Greater Celestial Essence

You can also make [Enchant Chest - Mighty Resilience] up to 485.

  • 480-485
    5 x [Enchant Boots - Major Agility] - 20 Hypnotic Dust, 10 Greater Celestial Essence
  • 485-490
    5 x [Enchant Gloves - Greater Expertise] - 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.

  • 490-495
    5 x [Enchant Shield - Mastery] - 60 Hypnotic Dust

Check your Calendar in-game to see if the Darkmoon Faire is open. You can gain +5 skill points by completing a single quest. Click here to read more about the quests.

  • 495-500
    5 x [Enchant Bracer - Precision] - 60 Hypnotic Dust, 5 Greater Celestial Essence

500 - 600

Visit your trainer and learn Zen Enchanting.

  • 500-526
    13 x [Enchant Bracer - Mastery] - 52 Spirit Dust
  • 526-550
    12 x [Enchant Boots - Greater Precision] - 24 Spirit Dust, 12 Mysterious essence

Alternative recipes are [Enchant Bracer - Major Dodge] or [Enchant Cloak - Superior Intellect]. It doesn't really matter which one you make because you can combine 5 Spirit Dust into 1 Mysterious essence. These recipes also gives you 5 skill points instead of 2. The best way would be to make a few from every recipe because it will be easier to sell them.

  • 550-556
    Make 2 Ring Enchants - 4 Spirit Dust
  • 556-577
    7 x [Enchant Chest - Superior Stamina] - 28 Spirit Dust, 7 Mysterious essence

or

7 x [Enchant Gloves - Superior Expertise] - 14 Mysterious essence
