Warlords of Draenor – Jewelcrafting changes
- No new meta gems in Warlords, or socket bonuses, no new gems for primary stats in Warlords, and no new gems have colors.
- Sockets are not guaranteed to be on Warlords items--they have a small chance to be on an item.
- New Jewelcrafting toys: Prismatic Focusing Lens creates a prismatic beam, Reflecting Prism lets you swap appearances
- Jewelcrafters can craft rare-quality necks and rings like Shifting Blackrock Band and Whispering Iron Choker. Click here for the full list.

- Taladite gems such as Multistrike Taladite are created by fusing a Taladite Crystal and Sorcerous Earth with an herb. These gems come in all secondary stats. There is also a "Greater" version which requires 10x Taladite Crystal and 10x Sorcerous Air as well as additional herbs, like Greater Critical Strike Taladite.

This Jewelcrafting leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to level your Jewelcrafting skill up from 1 to 600.
Powerleveling your Jewelcrafting won't be cheap. Make sure you have enough gold, even if you have Mining. The best thing you can do is to try to sell the items you make, just put them on the Auction House. A lot of level 85 players are willing to buy low level items for their alt. If you can't sell something just try to disenchant it, and sell the shards/dust.
Jewelcrafting is the best combined with Mining or the other option is Enchanting. Check out the Mining leveling guide or the Enchanting leveling guide if you want to level any of those professions. When you choose mining, you can save a lot of gold because you can gather the materials, but it will take a lot of time. With Enchanting, you can Disenchant the items you make.
Approximate Materials Required for 1-600
IMPORTANT! Do not buy all of these materials at once! Jewelcrafting is really expensive to level, and on most servers the Auction House is screwed up because of the insanely high prices of low level Gems, Ores and Bars. I usually have a few tips, and alternative recipes, so you can save some gold.

1 - 50
First, visit a trainer - just ask a guard, and learn Apprentice Jewelcrafting.
30 x [Delicate Copper Wire] - 60 Copper Bar
Save these, you will need them later.
20 x [Tigerseye Band] - 20 Tigerseye, 20 Delicate Copper Wire
You can make 20 x [Malachite Pendant] too.
50 - 150
Learn Jewelcrafting Journeyman.
50 x [Bronze Setting] - 100 Bronze Bar
Save these, you will need them later.
20 x [Simple Pearl Ring] - 20 Small Lustrous Pearl, 20 Bronze Setting, 40 Copper Bar
20 x [Gloom Band] - 20 Bronze Setting, 40 Shadowgem, 40 Delicate Copper Wire
Make [Ring of Silver Might] if Silver Bar is cheap on your server.
10 x [Ring of Twilight Shadows] - 20 Shadowgem, 20 Bronze Bar
You can also continue to make [Ring of Silver Might]
10 x [Heavy Stone Statue] - 80 Heavy Stone
If Heavy Stone is cheap (usually it's not) make this one up to 130 if you want to.
30 x [Pendant of the Agate Shield] - 30 Moss Agate, 30 Bronze Settings
If you prospect your own Ores, usually you will get a lot of [Lesser Moonstone] too, but even if you don't prospect the Ores, sometimes 2 Lesser Moonstone is cheaper than one Moss Agate. So get the recipe[Design: Amulet of the Moon] and use up all your Lesser Moonstone. This recipe turns yellow at 140, you might need to make more than 30 of these.
The design is sold by these NPCs.
150 - 200
Learn Jewelcrafting Expert.
45 x [Mithril Filigree] - 90 Mithril Bar
Save these, you will need 45 of them later.
8 x [Solid Stone Statue] - 80 Solid Stone
15 x [Engraved Truesilver Ring] - 15 Truesilver Bar, 30 Mithril Filigree
200 - 300
Learn Jewelcrafting Artisan.
If Citrine is expensive, you can continue to make [Engraved Truesilver Ring] up to around 210 or maybe more. But you will also need a bit more Mithril Filigree then.
The recipe will go yellow at 210, so you might need to get more Citrine if you are unlucky. If you are lucky you will only need 20.
25 x [Citrine Ring of Rapid Healing] - 25 Citrine, 50 Mithril Bar
5 x [Aquamarine Pendant of the Warrior] - 5 Aquamarine, 15 Mithril Filigree
50 x [Thorium Setting] - 50 Thorium Bar
Stop making these at 250 and only make more if you need it, but you will need around 50.
10 x [Ruby Pendant of Fire] - 10 Star Ruby, 10 Thorium Setting
If Large Opal is expensive on your realm, like it cost twice as much as one Star Ruby, then you should continue to make [Ruby Pendant of Fire] up to 275. Or if you Prospected your own Ores, you will have a lot of Star Ruby and Azerothian Diamond left, use all of them.
20 x [Simple Opal Ring] - 20 Large Opal, 20 Thorium Setting
If you reach 265 and you have a lot of Azerothian Diamond or if it's cheap, you can start to craft [Diamond Focus Ring]. Keep in mind that you will need 7 Azerothian Diamond for the next step.
7 x [Diamond Focus Ring] - 7 Azerothian Diamond, 7 Thorium Setting
3 x [Sapphire Pendant of Winter Night] - 3 Blue Sapphire, 3 Essence of Undeath, 3 Thorium Setting

You can continue to make the gems above if you didn't reach 350 by making the rings below, or make 1-2 more rings.
10 x [Heavy Adamantite Ring] - 10 Adamantite Bar, 10 Mercurial Adamantite
350 - 425
- 350 - 395
Buy around 55 from any of the following gems. At 375, these recipes will turn to yellow so you might need to buy more gems.
Cut any gem you want. Seriously, there are like 50 new green gem recipes, I won't list all of them. Go to your trainer, learn one and make that recipe around 55 times.
- 395 - 400
Make 5 from any of the following items:
5 x [Bloodstone Band] - 5 Bloodstone, 10 Crystallized Earth
5 x [Crystal Chalcedony Amulet] - 5 Chalcedony, 10 Crystallized Earth
5 x [Crystal Citrine Necklace] - 5 Huge Citrine, 10 Crystallized Earth
5 x [Sun Rock Ring] - 5 Sun Crystal, 10 Crystallized Earth
You might have to make more than 5.
- 400 - 420
23 x [Stoneguard Band] - 46 Eternal Earth
23 x [Shadowmight Ring] - 23 Eternal Earth, 23 Eternal Shadow
If you have some [Monarch Topaz], [Twilight Opal], [Autumn's Glow], [Forest Emerald], [Sky Sapphire] or you can buy these for cheaper than the Eternals, go to Wintergrasp and buy the jewelcrafting recipes sold by Stone Guard Mukar (Horde) and Knight Dameron (Alliance). You can only buy these recipes if your faction controls Wintergrasp. One recipe costs 19 honor, which means if you stay here and do a few daily quest while the battle is on, you can buy most of the recipes.
All of these recipes are orange up to 410 and yellow up to 425.
- 420 - 425
5 x [Dream Signet] - 5 Titanium Bar, 5 Dream Shard, 5 Forest Emerald
Check the previous part if you don't have materials for Dream Signet, or you can also try these alternatives below. Choose one you have materials for. (the alternative in the previous part is a lot cheaper.)
425 - 500
- 425 - 450
Make 25 from any of the new Uncommon Gem Cuts that you get from your trainer. You can also make[Jasper Ring] if you can disenchant it.
- 450 - 467
Make around 20 uncommon gems, or you can make 17 [Hessonite Band]
- 467 - 475
8 x [Hessonite Band] - 8 Jeweler's Setting, 16 Hessonite
You can also make [Carnelian Spikes] if 3 Carnelian is cheaper than 2 Hessonite. You can buy the Jeweler's Setting from the vendor.
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. Nightstone is usually really expensive, so this is the best way to use that free 5 skill point.
- 475 - 500
25 x [Nightstone Choker] - 25 Jeweler's Setting, 50 Nightstone
Make more Hessonite Band if you have some Hessonite left.
Rare Cataclysm gems are cheap on most realms, so making [The Perforator] between 490-500 seems very good alternative to rings and necks.
500 - 600
- 500 - 512
4 x [Ornate Band] - 4 Lapis Lazuli, 4 Tiger Opal, 4 Sunstone
- 512 - 527
5 x [Shadowfire Necklace] - 5 Roguestone, 5 Alexandrite, 5 Pandarian Garnet
You can also just continue to make more [Ornate Band].
If your main goal is to just learn every rare gem cuts. Then start making the first gem research [River's Heart]or [Sun's Radiance]. You can only make 1 research a day, but it will give you 3 skill points. You will have to learn like 100 recipes, which means you will reach 600 by making these researches daily.
- 527 - 575
I could list all the recipes you learn at 525, but there is no real need for that. All of the recipes you learn will stay orange all the way up to 575. You will learn new ones at 530, 535, 545, and so on. Making necks, rings gets you 3 skill points for 3 uncommon gems. Each gem cut gives 1 skill point. You get the same skill point to gem ratio either way. I would choose the necks, rings because it is usually easier for me to sell. You will use 48 gems.
- 575 - 585
You shouldn't make the necks or the rings because they will no longer grant you 3 skill point. Make any uncommon gem instead. You will use around 20 gems.
- 585 - 588
Make any gem research like [Primordial Ruby]. It is up to you which one you choose, but it's better to choose one that you have materials for because after the research you will learn a new recipe which you will have to make 6 times. The gem color of the recipe will be the same as the gems you used for the research.
- 588 - 600
Cut 6 rare gem from the learned recipe.
