WoW Blacksmithing Guide 1-600 Leveling | Blacksmithing Guide for MoP

Average: 5 (100 votes)

Below is a detailed walk-through on how to level Blacksmithing 1-600 easily. This Blacksmithing 1-600 guide is as complete as I can make it but players may have to purchase extra Blacksmithing materials due to sometimes not getting a point from a yellowed item. Some players may also find that making different items is cheaper depending their server's economy. In total, expect to spend 11,000-13,000g leveling Blacksmithing 1-600 (Note: Players should be able to recover around 7,000g or more by selling on the Auction House or disenchanting the items depending on the server's economy). Please enjoy this Blacksmithing 1-600 Leveling Guide and if you have any questions or feedback feel free to post them on our forums.

WoW Blacksmithing Guide 1-500 Leveling Short Cut Section - Patch 5.2

  • This section is for those who have a lot of gold and don't want to bother with the lower level mats. You won't make any meaningful gold with the items you make. They are grey and don't even vendor for much. The best advice I can give is use the below 1-500 leveling section as more of a filler for the normal way of leveling. If you get stuck somewhere and mats can't be found on your server's Auction House, make the training project that will give you the skill points to bypass it and then go back to normal leveling.

    • 575-600: From here you could just make any of the Ghost Iron items while they're yellow and then green until you hit 600. It will take approximately 48 or so to get there depending on your luck and if you have the guild perk for tradeskills. If you want to make gold from Masterwork iLvl450 items or Contender's PvP Set Pieces or the rare spellthreads (leg enchants), you'll need to level your character to 87 so, you can learn some new patterns from a vendor in Vale of Eternal Blossoms. Each recipe will cost you 1 x [Spirit of Harmony] which can be found from mobs throughout Pandaria. Jorunga Stonehoof - Horde or Cullen Hammerbrow - Alliance. Note: You need to do the quest (video below), A Celestial Experience which will lead to the quest, A Witness to History and into the Vale of Eternal Blossoms zone.

    • Be sure to disenchant or sell all items on the Auction House to recover some of the gold you put into leveling the Blacksmithing profession. You can also use the items for alts to help them level easier.
