Welcome back, everybody. Dave the Gamer here. Today, I just wanted to make a quick guide on how to level your enchanting from 1 to 300 made easy. So on the screen; I’m going to pop up all kinds of different things. I highly recommend pausing it if you need to know the information, also I’m going to put a link I found a great guide on Wowhead that I reference a lot of this from and I figured I’d make the video format for some people that just like to watch video instead of having to read everything.
But I think enchanting is going to be very important especially for hardcore raiders and PVP players come TBC. What a lot of people are going to do; you're going to either level up enchanting 1 to 375 just to enchant your rings and then drop it for a different profession but others are actually going to keep it the whole time and make a large amount of money just doing a lot of different enchants, being that most people are going to be leatherworking and probably like tailoring or blacksmithing or something to help with their raiding.
So there's not going to be as many people that are going to be in high level enchanters especially because you need to be I think like level 55. So I think there's a good source of possible money to be made come TBC, so I would highly recommend stocking up some of these supplies now so you don't have to buy it to level it up later on.
So what I'm going to go over is all the different items you get, talk about disenchanting, talk about some of the important recipes that you need to get now that could still net you some good money, and then a look ahead into the future. So let's jump right into this.
So starting off, let's take a look at disenchanting. So right now, it changes in TBC where you need to have much higher level enchanting to disenchant max level 70 items, but right now you only need a level 5 alt and you can disenchant anything. So on the screen is all of the different chances that you get in like what type of items, like based off the levels; so if I was to disenchant say a level 55 to 60 item, there’s a chance you're going to get the Illusion Dust.
Now if that item… So when I’m buying, there's a lot of times like I’ve bought items off the auction house really cheap knowing that the disenchant is actually higher than what I bought it for. But like I wouldn't want to enchant like, you need to know where the separation is because if you bought a 55 level item instead of 56, it would be Dream Dust instead of Illusion Dust. So depending on what you're shooting for disenchant-wise, make sure you're paying attention to those different levels.
So while leveling up, you're going to need different enchanting rods. So you're going to need a Rune Copper, a Rune Silver, Truesilver and an Arcanite Rod. All made by, well… The first copper rods, you can pick up by the vendor but the other ones you're going to pick up at a blacksmith.
Mats Required from 1-300
So here's an overall list of all of the possible items you're going to need to get from 1 to 300.
228 Strange Dust
11 Lesser Magic Essence
10 Lesser Astral Essence
2 Greater Astral Essence
65 Soul Dust
20 Lesser Mystic Essence
156 Vision Dust
10 Lesser Nether Essence
2 Greater Mystic Essence
290 Dream Dust
20 Greater Nether Essence
4 Greater Eternal Essence
4 Small Brilliant Shard
2 Large Brilliant Shard
82 Illusion Dust
You will also need several items acquired outside of disenchanting:
1 Copper Rod sold by vendors
1 Silver Rod created by Blacksmiths
1 Golden Rod created by Blacksmiths
1 Truesilver Rod created by Blacksmiths
1 Arcanite Rod created by Blacksmiths
1 Iridescent Pearl
1 Black Pearl
1 Golden Pearl
Personally, when I purchase, I like to buy all my items in one shot so I don't have to keep going back to the auction house. So what I always do though is I overbuy because I always feel like when it turns green and there's a small chance to level up, I feel like i just have shitty luck.
So where when it says 228 Strange Dust, I’d buy 240. It says 11 Lesser Magic Essence, I would buy 15. So none of these items are very expensive until you start getting into some of your higher level ones at the bottom, that's when I might buy one or two extra. But the cheap ones, buy 5-10 extra. It saves you from having to run back to the auction house. Your time is worth more than a couple gold, so just buy extra but buy this whole list and get ready.
So on the screen now is going to be all of your trainers that you need to go see from Horde to Alliance, to some of your higher end ones. As you see, like your expert enchanter locations, you can see that on the screen. And when you want to get past 225, you need to go get your Artisan one in the Uldaman dungeon. Now, it has a very great tip that I like there. As you see when you travel there, like I said, you have to be at your max out 225 so you'll level up there.
So you can also pick up some great enchants there. The Enchant of Minor Haste and Enchanted Leather, Enchanted Thorium but those are at 250 so I would make sure I look ahead and I bring the materials needed to level from 225 to 250. So while I'm there, I could just talk to the trainer again and learn those recipes.
So you don't want to have to make a second trip back to this place. So if you were wondering what it takes to make all the different Rune Copper, Silver, all the rods from the blacksmith, I'll put that on the screen now so you can actually see what you need to buy and that you can actually give it to a blacksmith to be able to make.
All right, now let's take a look at all the different things you want to craft to get from 1 to 75. And we're going to go right up the line, so next we're looking at 75 to 150. This is where you might want to pause the video, take a screenshot of it, even take a look at the link. You want to craft these different types or you can just follow along, craft a couple, pause the video, craft a couple, pause the video. So whatever you have to do to be able to level up through the 1 to 300.
So this is 75 to 150.
Now this is what you want to craft from 150 to 225.
And from 225 to 300, this is what you want to finish up with.
In a lot of the higher level ones from 225 to 300,
I’m sure if you stood in your major city and said, “Hey. You know if it costs you three gold to make this yourself, if you charge everybody a gold or two gold, it's better than just completely losing the money. You can at least recoup some of the money. I wouldn't be trying to get max value for it for the fact that a lot of these, not many people want it”.
So if you make it cheap enough, someone on their alt account will pick it up and you'll still recoup a little bit of money while not wasting too much time. Because if you spend two, three hours sitting here trying to get maximum value while leveling up, you're going to think there's gold farms you could have done and like, I don't want to talk about a mage making 300 gold.
A regular person, they could gold farm and make 100 gold an hour. So if you wasted all of this time to save 50 gold, you know three hours, you could have made 300 gold. So you have to keep in mind how much your time is really worth when trying to do this type of thing.
Best Enchanting Patterns
All right, lastly, let's talk about some of the big patterns you're going to be going after. Like I said, this is going to be huge in TBC so I highly recommend leveling it up now on your alt account.
I wouldn't do it on your main account unless you're strictly going to enchant your rings and whatnot but at least on your alt account, it's a great source to be able to, you know, do it for other people, get good tips especially if you get good patterns and TBC and stuff like that.
But even right now. So like I'll put on the screen all the big enchants I'm thinking about, I might have missed a couple but, Brilliant Wizard Oil, the Smoking Heart of the Mountain, druids need this for one of their trinkets.
You got the Spell Power for the weapon.
You got the Healing for the weapon.
Crusader for the weapon.
The Greater Stats for the chest
Riding Skill for gloves, pretty much everybody needs that one.
Healing for the bracers.
You have the plus 5 resist all for the cloak.
Plus 9 stamina for bracers. So that alone, that's what, like ten different big enchants that most characters need in the game. So you're definitely highly sought after and you can definitely make a good source of money.
I don't see many people spamming and at least in my server, I'm not seeing many enchanters spamming, “Hey, I can do this. I can do this”. So it's like if you have an auction person that you just send all of your stuff to, to sell, it'd be so nice to be able to just spam a macro like, “Hey, here's my services”, while you're selling and making money in the auction house. Boom, you drop out, you enchant something, get a 5-10 gold tip, move on.
So it's just a nice source of income and it's going to be highly sought after come TBC. I hope this was a great guide to be able to make it pretty straightforward one to 300.
I wanted to take a quick second to thank all of my Patrons. I have a couple Patrons now; I'll put their name on the screen.
Thank you guys so much for helping support the channel. All of my silver plus Patrons get access to a special spot on Discord where I put all of my early access videos so they get to see all of my videos weeks, if not months, before they ever go live so they get the little edge on competition for all the investing, the gold farming places, way before everybody else. So if that's something you're interested in check in the description. But I hope you enjoyed the video, guys. As always, game on.
