WoW Tailoring Leveling Guide 1-600

Tailoring is a useful and profitable profession to have but it can be a bit pricey to level up.  You’ll go through hundreds of pieces of various types of cloth.  Farming for all of this cloth isn’t worth the time, it’s far easier and faster to simply buy your mats on the Auction House.  If you don’t think you can afford to buy them all or hope to make gold with your Tailoring once you level it up take a look a this guide before you start Tailoring.

This Tailoring Leveling Guide is updated for patch 5.0.5 and Mists of Pandaria.

Here is an Apprentice to Zen Master Tailoring leveling guide (levels 1 to 600). Leveling Tailoring requires an amazingly large amount of mats to level up. Below are step by step instructions for leveling Tailoring using only basic recipes and materials. If you need more gold in order to finish leveling your Tailoring then take a look at this guide. Enjoy!

What’s in this guide:

Materials Required for Leveling Tailoring from 1-600 (approximate)

Here is a list of all the cloth and items you will need off the Auction House to level from 1-600.  You’ll also need to purchase various threads and dyes from vendors but I have left them out of this list since they are easy and cheap to obtain.

Apprentice Tailoring Guide (Levels 1-75)

Leveling up Apprentice Tailoring will require a bunch of Linen Cloth and Coarse Thread. Linen can be easily obtained as you’re leveling or you can go back to places like the Deadmines later to farm the linen you need or simply buy it on the Auction House.

Expert Tailoring Guide (Levels 125-205)

You’ll need Silk Cloth for these levels.  The best place to get silk is either Scarlet Monastery or the Auction House, it’s one of the most popular or easy to find cloths so it typically is less expensive than Mageweave.

Now if you have plenty of Windwool Cloth you can make the items that are yellow and green till 600 but it would be a huge waste but maybe you have no Spirit of Harmony to complete it this way

  1. Thanks for the guide I really appreciate it. It helped me to get back into the game.

  2. Thx! This is such a great help!

  3. thank you very much for this and all of your up to date and accurate guides :)

  4. At 450 I’d go for 5x “Enchanted Spellthread”. You’ll need 15 Bolt of Embersilk Cloth and 30 Volatile Fire. With that you go from 450-465 and need less Embersilk Cloth. Because of MoP Embersilk Cloth isnt obtained so easily anymore and costs quite a lot depending on your population.
