Tailoring Power Leveling Guide 1-300

Tailoring Power Leveling Guide

This guide is intended to help you level Tailoring as quickly as possible. Recipes in bold are considered the best option for that particular range. The recipes chosen have been optimized to use the lowest amount of ingredients. Occasionally recipes with the more common materials are included as an alternative. When making bolts of cloth, you'll often be making much more than necessary to unlock the next set of recipes. For this guide I assume you will be making bolts of cloth until the recipe turns green and I do not include a new recipe until that point.

In any situation where there are multiple choices you are free to select the recipe that is better for you. Tailoring has a large number of RP (aka "role playing") items that frequently sell better than the lowbie gear you could make. These RP items often use less cloth than armor recipes. I've include RP items (noted as 'RP' in the lists) as an option for those who'd like to craft marketable goods when possible. I've also included items that can be disenchanted for those that prefer to DE their goods instead of selling them.

This guide utilizes a few vendor and one world drop recipe. If you can get them, feel free to use them to level up. If not, ingredients have been calculated for appropriate alternatives. You can simply print out this page and mark the items you plan to craft to come up with your personal tally for bolts of cloth. A couple of these vendors have gone missing in Cataclysm, specifically those not in a city. If you intend to use a vendor recipe be sure to purchase it prior to the Cataclysm launch date.

Good Luck!
