WotLK Enchanting Guide: Turbo-Boost Leveling from 1 to 450

wotlk-enchanting

The following guide is an overview of how to go from level 1 all the way to level 450 in the enchanting profession during the Wrath of the Lich King expansion of World of Warcraft. This guide can be followed for the WoW: Classic iteration of the expansion.

Enchanting is split into three sections in WotLK, which include classic (1-300), master (300-350), and finally grand master (350-450). All three sections will be covered.

To follow this leveling guide, you will need to gather materials beforehand. A list of required materials will be displayed at the end which covers all of the materials needed to follow each step of the guide.

Some materials may go unused, due to the way that RNG works with regards to leveling professions. In some cases, you may even need more, if you have very bad RNG.

General Enchanting Tips:

  • It is advised that you sell off your inventory once you finish the guide since most of the materials and things you craft will be used in later crafting recipes.
  • This guide will require you to have access to Northrend zones to receive Grand Master training. Subsequently, having access to these zones will mean you have access to the Outland zones necessary to obtain Master training.
