Vanilla Tailoring Guide (1-300)

Classic Tailoring Guide


This Vanilla WoW Tailoring guide can help you from 1 to 300 Tailoring. With a little patience you should be level 300 Tailoring in no time!
Let’s start off with the materials needed for leveling to 300.

The Process

Now, how do you get the cloth?
simple: First off, 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 Cloth / Mageweave. – That way you can also get your little Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade, which I think is awesome. — It’s a small bonus to the grind 🙁

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 Cloth, Mageweave Cloth, 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 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 Bolt of Runecloth) more.

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

Make 10x Runecloth Pants (4x Bolt of Runecloth, 2x Ironweb Spider Silk, 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.
