WotLK Enchanting Guide: 1 – 450 (WoW Classic Leveling)


Everyone in WoW has gear, and all that gear needs to be enchanted! Enchanting can be quite a lucrative profession. You can disenchant green, blue, and purple items and sell the mats you get on the auction house, or you can sell enchants to other players. WotLK introduced enchanting vellums which made it possible for enchanters to sell their enchants on the auction house as well. And that made it even more profitable. You can even send enchants to your other characters as well. That’s why I strongly suggest if you have much free time and many alts to train enchanting on at least one of them. Our WotLK enchanting guide will help you get max skill level quickly so you can start making some money.

Not only can this profession be a great source of income, but it also has some useful perks. Enchanters can enchant their own rings to give them additional stats:

Enchanting doesn’t have a natural profession pair like some other professions do. You can either pair with a gathering or another lucrative profession if your goal is to make gold, or you can pair with a minmax profession if you want to create a strong character. 

Total mats needed for 1 – 450 Enchanting

Enchanting guide WoW Classic

Start by learning enchanting from one of these trainers:

Horde trainers

Alliance trainers

Apprentice enchanting (1 – 75)

You can buy Copper Rod from an enchanting supplies vendor. Rest of the rods mentioned in this guide you will have to buy from the auction house or ask a blacksmithing friend to craft them for you.

Alternatively, you can disenchant green items until 50. However, that is much easier for new characters who are getting extra green gear while they’re leveling up. If you are power leveling enchanting, just do Enchant Bracer – Minor Health.

Don’t forget to train Journeyman enchanting (75 – 150) once you reach skill level 50.

Journeyman enchanting (75 – 150)

Formula: Enchant Cloak – Minor Agility is a limited supply recipe sold by Horde vendor Kulwia in Stonetalon Mountains and Alliance vendor Dalria in Ashenvale. 

When you go visit either of them, also buy Formula: Enchant Bracer – Lesser Strength, another limited supply recipe that you’ll need further down the line. If you can’t be bothered by traveling, you can always check the auction house for those recipes. I strongly suggest you get both these recipes because they provide the cheapest way of leveling.

Don’t forget to train Expert enchanting (150 – 225) once you reach skill level 125.

Expert enchanting (150 – 225)

Alternative – you can also do:

Base your decision on your server’s economy. Calculate if 20x Lesser Mystic Essence is cheaper than cca 60x Soul Dust.

Don’t forget to train Artisan Enchanting (225 – 300) once you reach skill level 200. 

Artisan enchanting (225 – 300)


You can continue doing 7x Enchant Cloak – Greater Defense – 7x Vision Dust.  (This recipe goes yellow at 225, so you might need to make a bit more than 5. If Lesser Nether Essence is really cheap on your server, just do Enchant Gloves – Agility)

This is learned from Formula: Enchant Bracer – Greater Stamina which is a random world drop. Try to buy it on the auction house if you can. However, because of its rarity and importance to leveling enchanting, it can reach a high price. 

Alternative – you can also do:

The Formula: Lesser Mana Oil is sold by Kania in Silithus. It’s not bind on pickup, so you might even be able to find it on the auction house.

Formula: Enchant Shield – Greater Stamina is a limited recipe sold by Daniel Bartlett in Undercity for Horde players, and by Mythrin’dir in Darnassus for Alliance players.

The Formula is bind on pickup, so you’ll have to buy it with your enchanter character.

You can buy Formula: Runed Arcanite Rod from Lorelae Wintersong in Moonglade.

Enchanting guide TBC

Master enchanting (300 – 375)

Learn Master enchanting (300 – 375) from one of these trainers:

  • Alliance: Johan Barnes in Honor Hold, Hellfire Peninsula. 
  • Horde: Felannia in Thrallmar, Hellfire Peninsula. 


Formula: Enchant Shield – Major Stamina is a limited supply recipe sold by Madame Ruby in Shattrath. When visiting her, also buy limited supply recipes Formula: Superior Wizard Oil, Formula: Large Prismatic Shard, and Formula: Superior Wizard Oil.

  • 335 – 345 for Blood elves only: 

Blood Elves can abuse their racial ability Arcane Affinity to easily get some points. You can transform three Small Prismatic Shards into a Large Prismatic Shard. Then create 3 Small Prismatic Shards out of a Large Prismatic Shard. Only this one can give you a skill tho. And then back again. This is somewhat of a time-consuming process but it’s definitely worth it. 

This recipe starts out yellow in your spellbook, so the number of times you have to make it depends entirely on how lucky you are.

Formula: Runed Adamantite Rod is a limited supply recipe sold by Rungor in Stonebreakear Hold, Terokkar Forest for Horde players, and by Vodesiin in Temple of Telhamat, Hellfire Peninsula for Alliance players. 

Now you can go to Northrend and learn Grand Master enchanting. However, if you want to level up the next 25 points still using the TBC recipes you can do this:

Formula: Enchant Ring – Spellpower is sold by Alurmi in Caverns of Time and it requires honored Keepers of Time reputation. 

Or you can do:

Formula: Enchant Ring – Striking is sold by Ythyar in Karazhan before the Chess event, and it requires revered The Consortium reputation.

Thank your for reading our WotLK enchanting guide! Now that you are a max level enchanter, be sure to visit Vanessa Sellers in Dalaran. She will sell you endgame enchants for Dream Shard and Abyss Crystal. Those are usually the most profitable enchants. So whenever you have extra Dream Shards lying around make sure to purchase some formulas from her. You can prioritize the formulas you will use yourself or the ones that sell the best on your server.
