Tailoring Guide 1 450 WotLK 3.3.5a

Welcome to Warcraft Tavern’s Tailoring guide! In this comprehensive guide, we’ll provide everything you need to max out your Tailoring, from the materials required to level up your profession to the best recipes to follow.

In WoW, Tailoring is one of the most useful professions for cloth wearers of any class. It involves turning the cloth you lot from mobs throughout Azeroth into high-powered gear like Spellweave and Royal Moonshroud Robe. In Wrath of the Lich King, Blizzard also added Embroidery, which are Tailor specific enchants, such as Lightweave, that can greatly increase the stats on gear. Like Engineers, Tailors also make profession-specific mounts, like the Frosty Flying Carpet.

Because Tailoring uses loot dropped from monsters, there is no explicit gathering profession that it is paired with. Instead, players usually choose to level Enchanting coterminously, disenchanting the excess gear for dusts and essences. There are also no items required to purchase in order to start leveling, so once you train in Apprentice, you can immediately begin!

Required Materials

Below you can find the materials you’ll need to level from 1-450, as well as a few tips and things to keep in mind.

  • Sometimes we will have to craft yellow recipes that don’t guarantee a level up on every craft, therefore the materials required are estimates, rather than exact figures.
  • Specific recipes will require items you have previously crafted, so check the lists before getting rid of crafts!
  • Some recipes don’t come from trainers but instead are acquired from drops or vendors.

All of these things are accounted for in the materials listed below. Listed separately from the material list are those recipes not acquired from a trainer, but rather from a vendor or world drop.

Training Route

Certain crafts need to be used later to further level up the profession, other times the materials can be bought from a vendor instead of the Auction House, or the crafting recipe is not acquired from a trainer. Other times we use recipes that turn yellow and as such do not have a 100% chance to level up your profession with every craft, this means some randomness enters the equation when it comes to materials. We indicate all of these situations with the following icons to make this guide as clear as possible.

Crafting

  • Note if you only want to level tailoring up until your cloak embroid you only have to follow this guide up to level 420.
  • Crafting 468 (± 48 ui grouploot dice up) Bolt of Frostweave should be enough to take us roughly to 440 Tailoring, after which most recipes will require Bolt of Imbued Frostweave instead. If you are crafting up to level 420 you will only need to craft 360 (± 30 ui grouploot dice up) Bolt of Frostweave or 1800 (± 150 ui grouploot dice up) Frostweave Cloth.
  • You might need to make a couple of extra Frostwoven Cowl, stop once you reach 395.
  • You will need to make additional Bolt of Imbued Frostweave for levels 440 to 450 once you reach that stage.
  • You might need to make a couple of extra Duskweave Boots, stop once you reach 425.
  • You might need to make a couple of extra Frostweave Bag, stop once you reach 440.

Level 440 to 450

Once at level 440 the cost per level up increases significantly. I highly recommend using either Nexus Hub or TradeSkillMaster (or a similar alternative) to determine which crafts are the least costly or will potentially turn you a profit. Note that for the epic crafts you want to consider diversification, such that you aren’t left with a bunch of the same epics before they all sell.

  • Frostweave Bag depending on the selling price on your server might or might not be a viable option, on the least you can use it to fill out your bag slot, bank slots, and those of your alts / guildies.
  • Crafting epic gloves whether Spellweave / Moonshroud / Ebonweave is another option, it is relativly expensive but you got guaranteed level-ups until level 445. Note that it might take a fair while to sell them.
  • At level 445 you can keep crafting bags, gloves or turn towards Epic chests Spellweave / Moonshroud / Ebonweave for guaranteed level-ups, they tend to be more expansive on the material side, but they offer a form of diversification.
  • Another alternative is Glacial Bag, do note that you can only craft a single one every week and it requires you to be exalted with the Sons of Hodir

Endgame Tailoring

Specializations

Tailoring has 3 Specializations: Mooncloth, Spellfire, and Shadoweave. While each had specific sets to craft in TBC, Blizzard has changed their purpose in WotLK. Now, they offer you the chance to proc an additional piece of cloth when you craft Moonshroud, Spellweave, or Ebonweave. All of the specialization quests begin from Lower City in Shattrath.

Embroidery, Bags, and Mounts

Blizzard added Embroidery — Tailor specific enchants that cause items to become Soulbond — to diversify Tailoring in TBC. In WotLK, it takes the form of two Spellthread patterns. Each is only available for purchase after reaching Exalted reputation with the necessary faction, and is sold by the respective Quartermasters listed below. The two Embroideries are:

Bags are another vital, and potentially profitable item created by Tailors at all levels. In WotLK, Profession and Class bags got bumped up to 32 slots, and bags for all players were increased to 22. While some of the patterns are available to learn from trainers, there are three that require specific reputation levels to purchase from faction’s Quartermasters. They are:

Like Engineering, Tailoring is able to craft its own mounts: Flying Carpets. Two — the Flying Carpet and the Magnificent Flying Carpet are each taught by trainers, and can be learned once you reach an appropriate skill level. Frosty Flying Carpet, on the other hand, is learned by purchasing Pattern: Frosty Flying Carpet from Frozo the Renowned in Dalaran for 6x Frozen Orb

Raiding Patterns

Like all crafting professions, Tailoring patterns have a small chance to drop (or be purchased) from each of the raiding tiers in WotLK. These patterns create Epic, BoE gear, some of which is BiS or pre-raiding BiS. These items are constantly in high demand and Tailors who know these patterns become incredibly important to raiding groups and guilds or stand to make a good amount of gold from selling their services.


Thank you for taking the time to read our Tailoring leveling guide for WotLK. I hope it was helpful, and if you have any questions or suggestions please feel free to leave a comment below.

If you can’t get 20 Knothide Leathers, you can craft 10 more Netherweave Pants and then craft 10 Netherweave Robes to get to 350.

Bolt of Woolen Cloth has incorrect material count.
Says 90, but actually requires 135. It’s 3 Cloth per bolt, not 2.
