Vanilla / Classic WoW Enchanting Guide 1 – 300

 

Introduction

Enchanting is one of six crafting professions available to players in Vanilla / Classic WoW. It utilizes shards and dust, created by disenchanting unwanted gear of uncommon quality or higher, to enchant weapons and armor with additional properties. Like Tailoring, Enchanting does not directly rely on one of the three gathering professions for raw materials. For this reason, it is often paired with Tailoring, allowing players to farm raw cloth, tailor uncommon and rare armor pieces with it, and disenchant them for shards and dust. In this guide, we will focus on how to level Enchanting from 1 – 300 in Vanilla / Classic WoW.

Materials Required

As luck plays a role in whether a skill point is earned on yellow and green actions, this list represents a fairly conservative estimate and accounts for some bad luck. That said, the majority of actions in this guide are orange and yellow, so I wouldn’t anticipate needing much more than the materials listed below to reach 300.

Skilling Up

To avoid wasting materials, be sure to visit your profession trainer as directed to purchase new skill brackets (Journeyman, Expert, etc.) before reaching level caps. When you reach 200 skill level and are ready to learn Artisan Enchanting, you will need to go to Annora in Uldaman. Be sure to bring enough materials with you to hit 280 Enchanting (including Formula: Lesser Mana Oil) if you want to purchase all of Annora’s enchants without needing to return to Uldaman a second time.
