Vanilla / Classic WoW Tailoring Guide 1 – 300

 

Introduction

Tailoring is one of six crafting professions available to players in Vanilla / Classic WoW. It utilizes cloth dropped from slain humanoid enemies to craft a variety of goods, including cloth armor for casters, bags, and various cosmetic items such as shirts and dresses. Tailoring is unique in that it does not directly rely on one of the three gathering professions for raw materials. For this reason, it is often paired with Enchanting, 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 Tailoring 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. However, if you want to further hedge your bets and potentially avoid time running back to the Auction House, you may want to consider buying 5-10% more than the amounts listed. You can always sell the excess back!
