Tailoring 1-300 Guide

Recommended Posts

Hey Everybody,


So I have been going through some websites and gathering some nice profession guides to post here on the forums since they are still virtually empty.

None of them were writen by me but of course I checked them for clear mistakes or to simply clear out some nonsense.



Make sure you read through the whole guide before you start.

Now, first of all.. lets see how much cloth you need. Let me remind you, there is a few sites that gives you some information, some different than others. But I used these numbers, and got to 300 just fine:

You'll need:

8 stacks of Linen Cloth

10 stacks of Wool Cloth

38 stacks of Silk Cloth

26 stacks of Mageweave Cloth

45 stacks of Runecloth

12 stacks of Rugged Leather

*and of course money to buy the coarse thread, rune thread, dye etc. But thats less than 50gold.

Now, how do you get all of those clothes, you may ask? simple:

First of, because you will need a sh*t-ton of Runecloth, you should have a 'WTB all your Runecloth' in trade and world channel up. That way, you spend less time in the end. // If you don't feel like buying all the Runecloth, then you can farm it easily of any humanoid mob above level 50. WPL and EPL are nice places, but also Silithus at the Twilight camps, so you can raise your Cenarion Hold Reputation at the same time. // Meanwhile i'd suggest you go Scarlet Monestary with a friend (I was a mage, and i had a hunter friend, sometimes another mage, and sometimes a priest) -- that will do just fine, regardless of gear. I suggest Library and Armory for the most Silk / Mageweave. - That way you can also get your little Tabard of Scarlet Crusade, which I think is awesome. -- It's a small bonus to the grind default_sad.png

If you haven't got any friends to farm with (lol) then you can go Tanaris, at the Oasis Water guys, just east of Gadgetzan. They drop silk, mageweave, some greens and some food/water. Have low respawn timer aswell.

Wool cloth and Silk cloth are easily farmed in Hillsbrad Foothills at the Humanoids near the castle and the farms. Respawn timers are not that bad, and there is lots of them. - remember to bring free bag space of course, since there is a 5min walk to nearest town.

And as for the Rugged Leather I suggest you simply buy it off Auction House (unless you are a skinner aswell, or got some spare in bank from some other stuff you should've used them for).

They aren't the most expensive leather out there, since its the 'final leather' and all skinners at level 60 skins it easily.

Now, Linen Cloth is easily farmed as Horde in Ragefire Chasm (inside Orgrimmar), and Deadmines as Alliance (where you can also gain Wool Cloth). --- Both easily solo-able, with moderate pulls.


You can of course buy all the cloth and leather off the auction house, but in my case, it didnt have that large amounts. So I had to farm myself.


Fishing will be an easy - and occasionally - faster way to get cloth, especially if you're not high level enough to farm in larger bulks.


The Skill-up of Tailoring


What to make, from skill x --> y ... and materials needed for each item crafted. And how many of them to make (estimated, remember it can turn green and you can be VERY unlucky, but this should do. -- You can also be lucky, and use less cloth/money than needed, so it goes both ways.

1 - 50

Bolt of Linen Cloth (2 x Linen Cloth) x 80

50 - 60

Heavy Linen Gloves (2 x Bolt of Linen Cloth, 1 x Coarse Thread) x 10


Red Linen Shirt (2 x Bolt of Linen Cloth, 1 x Coarse Thread, 1 x Red Dye) x 5

65 - 75

Reinforced Linen Cape (2 x Bolt of Linen Cloth, 3 x Coarse Thread) x 5

75 - 105

Bolt of Woolen Cloth (3 x Wool Cloth) x 60

105 - 110

Gray Woolen Shirt (2 x Bolt of Woolen Cloth, 1 x Fine Thread, 1 x Gray Dye) x 5

110 - 125

Double-stitched Woolen Shoulders (3 x Bolt of Woolen Cloth, 2 x Fine Thread) x 15

125 - 145

Bolt of Silk Cloth (4 x Silk Cloth) x 190

145 - 160

Azure Silk Hood (2 x Bolt of Silk Cloth, 2 x Blue Dye, 1 x Fine Thread) x 15

160 - 170

Silk Headband (3 x Bolt of Silk Cloth, 2 x Fine Thread) x 10

170 - 175

Formal White Shirt (3 x Bolt of Silk Cloth, 2 x Bleach, 1 x Fine Thread) x 5

175 - 185

Bolt of Mageweave (5x Mageweave Cloth) x 100

185 - 205

Crimson Silk Vest (4 x Bolt of Silk Cloth, 2 x Red Dye, 2 x Fine Thread) x 20

205 - 215

Crimson Silk Pantaloons (4 x Bolt of Silk Cloth, 2 x Red Dye, 2 x Silken Thread) x 10

215 - 220

Black Mageweave Leggings or Black Mageweave Vest (2 x Bolt of Mageweave, 3 x Silken Thread) x 5

220 - 230

Black Mageweave Gloves (2 x Bolt of Mageweave, 2 x Heavy Silken Thread) x 10

230 - 250

Black Mageweave Headband or Black Mageweave Shoulders (3 x Bolt of Mageweave, 2 x Heavy Silken Thread) x 20

250 - 260

Bolt of Runecloth (5 x Runecloth) x 180

260 - 275

Runecloth Belt (3 x Bolt of Runecloth, 1 x Rune Thread) x 15

275 - 280

Runecloth Bag (5 x Bolt of Runecloth, 2 x Rugged Leather, 1 x Rune Thread) x 5

*280 - 300

Runecloth Gloves (4 x Bolt of Runecloth, 4 x Rugged Leather, 1 x Rune Thread) x 20

*extracted from http://www.blizzardguides.com/wow_tailoring_guide.html, and modified a bit.

*You can also go from 230-250 by making Black Mageweave Boots (3 x Bolt of Mageweave, 2x Heavy Silken Thread, 2 x Thick Leather) x 20. This will cost you the extra Thick Leather, but will also be more likely to sell at the Auction House (due to the Engineering use; Gnomish Rocket Boots and Goblin Rocket Boots, which is in higher demand from Player vs. Player-action.

*You can also go from 275-300 by making Brightcloth Cloak (4 x Bolt of Runecloth, 2x Gold Bar, 1x Rune Thread) x35. Depending on auction houses' price, Gold Bar can be cheaper than Rugged Leather.

The pattern, however, is a drop. High chance of getting it if you're farming mobs at a regular basis. It also drops very well from chests in Aszhara. **THIS WILL REQUIRE 100x (5 stacks of runecloth) more.

*You can also get from 285-300 by doing the following:

Make 10x Runecloth Pants (4x Bolt of Runecloth, 2x Ironweb Spidersilk, 1x Rune Thread) (285-295), each skillup is 100% guaranteed.

Make 5x Runecloth Headband (6x Bolt of Runecloth, 2x Ironweb Spider Silk, 1x Rune Thread) (295-300) each skillup is 100% guaranteed.

This process (285-300) will require 14x Bolt of Runecloth, aswell as 30x Ironweb Spider Silk and 15x Rune Thread.

As said, I will try to upload my video of the timelapse tailoring skill up, cut down to a minute or so.

- I was unlucky with the last few levels, so i had to make some mooncloth instead. still got to 300 with no large issues.

You can also see where to learn the different tailoring skills (as horde though) in the video.

Except to gather all the materials needed within a few weeks, depending on how much you farm each day etc. Of course it will take less time if you don't farm, and just buy things straight off the auction house.
