WoW Tailoring Leveling Guide 1 - 600

Warlords of Draenor – Tailoring changes


This Tailoring leveling guide will show you the fastest and easiest way how to get your Tailoring skill up from 1 to 600. 

You will need thousands of cloths if you want to level Tailoring. It will cost thousands of gold to buy the cloths, or if you farm them, it will take a lot of time to farm everything. Tailoring is good combined with Enchanting because you will be able to disenchant most items you craft, but an Enchanter friend can do it for you too. Check out my Enchanting leveling guide if you want to level Enchanting.

Keep in mind, this Tailoring guide is made to level your profession as fast as possible, so sometimes the cloths you will make might not be the best items for your level or they won't be really profitable if you want to sell them.

  • 260 Linen Cloth
  • 135 Wool Cloth

First, visit any trainer in the main cities of old Azeroth - just ask a guard, and learn Apprentice Tailoring. You can buy "Threads" and "Dye" from the Tailoring supply vendors.

Stop making these if you reach Tailoring 45, and make more only if you need it.

    Make 10 from any of the following:


- 10 Bolt of Imbued Frostweave, 20 Eternal Life, Fire or Shadow

You can also make [Frostweav Bag] instead of these. It will cost you a lot more gold to level with the bags, but when you sell all of them at the Auction House, you will get most of your gold back. You will need to make more Bolt of Imbued Frostweave if you level with bags.

You will get 5 skill points for each bag. You can also make two [Otherworldly Bag] instead of the Embersilk Bags, but it is usually harder to sell.

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.

  • 555 - 600
    9 x [The recipe you discovered from making Imperial Silk] - 36-54 Bolt of Windwool Cloth

Every recipe that you can discover will grant you 5 skill points, but the number of cloths required to make them is different. If you didn't discover a Dreadful Gladiator PvP item recipe, but an epic item recipe, you will have to make another Imperial Cloth the next day, or until you discover a pvp item recipe.
