Average: 3.8 (6 votes)
Tailoring Gold SQ

Below is an overview video and detailed walkthrough on how to easily make gold with Tailoring. As shown in the video, after two days I had net sales of 4,838g with a total profit of 2,586g! As of patch 3.3.3 some items have had significant declines in pricing since this Tailoring Gold Guide was made so, make sure to test your server's economy first before sinking a lot of gold into this. Materials have dropped as well as so on my server this is still profitable aside from some of the rare pvp pieces but still be careful.

WoW Tailoring Gold Guide: Which patterns to get and their requirements.

  • First, you will need to get some patterns by having the required reputation or achievement.
  • I have listed the best selling patterns below and suggest getting these first.

    [Pattern: Brilliant Spellthread]
    This pattern will make [Brilliant Spellthread] and requires being exalted with Argent Crusade. It can be purchased from Veteran Crusader Aliocha Segard in Icecrown.

    [Pattern: Sapphire Spellthread]
    This pattern will make [Sapphire Spellthread] and requires being exalted with Kirin Tor. It can be purchased from Archmage Alvareaux in Dalaran.

    [Wispcloak]
    To be able to make the [Wispcloak] you will need to complete the Northrend Dungeonmaster. Once you have completed the achievement, talk with Charles Worth in Dalaran to learn the pattern (Click the chat bubble instead of the "Train Me" text). It requires a skill level of 420.

    [Deathchill Cloak]
    To be able to make the [Deathchill Cloak] you will need to complete the Loremaster of Northrend - Horde or Loremaster of Northrend - Alliance. Once you have completed the achievement, talk with Charles Worth in Dalaran to learn the pattern (Click the chat bubble instead of the "Train Me" text). It requires a skill level of 420.

    All of the other items can be trained from Charles Worth in Dalaran.

    WoW Tailoring Gold Guide: Final Thoughts

    • So, Tailoring can be pretty good if you invest the time into it. It's not a great profession to get to 450 and start making gold with as you need rep to buy patterns for some of the best sellers and you need a decent amount of gold to start, but if you take the time to gather the best selling patterns you can make a lot of gold with it. Some other bonus's with Tailoring are the basically free leg enchant and the nice cloak enchant. Currently, my friend also makes about 1000g+ a day in tips by just crafting the ToC epics.
    • In short, don't disclude Tailoring as a good profession. Be creative when making gold with any profession and you'll see they all have potential.

    WoW Tailoring Gold Guide: Final Suggestions and Tips

    • Once you get the hang of how much you sell begin purchasing mats during the weekend; they are typically the cheapest on the weekend.

      The main reason for this is most players aren't actually raiding on the weekends and have a lot more time to gather mats. With the abundance of mats comes the simple economic rule of supply exceeding demand, which leads to lower prices. This doesn't mean 100% of the time they will be cheaper on the weekend, but instead it makes it more likely. After you get a feel for mat prices you can purchase them throughout the week for the lowest prices.

    • Checking on mats everyday will get you familar with who sells what.

      Pay attention and take a look at who is selling mats all the time and message them to sell directly to you at a discount. This will save you big on the craft costs. I have countless farmers listed on my friends list who I deal with regularly to get the cheapest price possible.

    • Finally, World of Warcraft isn't just about making gold and really should be the smallest part of your playtime.

      I hope this guide will help you get rich in World of Warcraft but at the same time free up farm time so you can actually enjoy the game for what it is meant to be; fun! So, don't sit at your computer 24-7 just to make gold. Go out, raid, PvP, whatever, just make sure to have fun (^_^)v.

      Good luck and I hope you enjoyed this guide. If you have any suggestions, comments, or feedback, please make a post on our forums.
