WoW Jewelcrafting Guide 1-375
World of Warcraft Jewelcrafting Guide
Jewelcrafting can be both a profitable and a useful profession for any class in World of Warcraft. You can learn to create many rings and necklaces which can be more difficult to come by at lower levels, as well as some cloth head armor and trinkets that only the Jewelcrafter can use.
It should be noted that, because Jewelcrafting was introduced with the Burning Crusade expansion, you cannot learn the profession in the basic cities of Azeroth. You will need to visit a Burning Crusade city, like Exodar or Silvermoon City. You can talk to any guard to locate the Jewelcrafting trainer.
It's helpful and less expensive to train in Mining for your 2nd profession, but it may not be necessary if you already have a character that is a miner or if you have the gold to buy your materials at the Auction House.
Jewelcrafting Apprentice (up to 50)
With 60-100 Copper Bars, you can create 30-50 Delicate Copper Wire and attain 30-40 Jewelcrafting skill points. Then you can use some of that Delicate Copper Wire you've created, along with 20-25 Tigerseye, to create Tigerseye Bands. Or you can use 20-25 Malachite and your Delicate Copper Wire to create Malachite Pendants. Or choose any combination of both items, which you can put on the Auction House.
Jewelcrafting Journeyman (up to 125)
You should have atleast attained a Jewelcrafting skill of 50 by crafting Tigerseye Bands and/or Malachite Pendants, but possibly up to 70. You can now create 20-30 Bronze Settings using 40-60 Bronze Bars. With another 80 Bronze Bars you can make 20 Solid Bronze Rings to reach 100 Jewelcrafting, otherwise you can use Silver. With 70 Silver Bars you can craft 10 Elegant Silver Rings and then 30 Rings of Silver Might. Either method can help you reach 100, possibly 110 Jewelcrafting. Simple Pearl Rings can also be crafted with Lustrous Pearls, Bronze Settings, and Copper Bars to reach 110.
To reach 125, you can create 15 Rings of Twilight Shadows with 30 Bronze Bars and 30 Shadowgem. Or you can make Heavy Stone Statues with Heavy Stone and then use Bronze Settings and Moss Agate to craft Pendant of the Agate Shield.
Jewelcrafting Expert (up to 200)
After training for Expert Jewelcrafting, you can possibly level to 150 by making more Pendant of the Agate Shield. Or you may use 54 Iron Bars, 27 Jade, and 27 Bronze Settings to create 27 Heavy Jade Rings to level from 125 to 150 Jewelcrafting.
You can use 50-60 Mithril Bars and create 25-30 Mithril Filigree to reach 170 or 180 (or possibly 185 using 80 Mithril Bars). You can then use that Mithril Filigree and some Truesilver Bars to make Engraved Truesilver Rings and reach 200.
Jewelcrafting Artisan (up to 275)
You may use Citrine Ring of Rapid Healing (1 Citrine, 2 Elemental Water, 2 Mithril Bars) to reach 210, possibly 225. Aquamarine Signets (3 Aquamarine, 4 Flask of Mojo) can also level you to 225. Alternatively, you can craft Aquamarine Pendant of the Warrior to get these points.
Then you can make 50-60 Thorium Settings (each requires 1 Thorium Bar) to get your skill up to around 250 or 255. You can then use some of those Thorium Settings, along with plenty of Star Ruby to craft Ruby Pendant of Fire; it's possible to reach 275 this way.
From about 260 Jewelcrafting you can also craft 20 Simple Opal Rings to reach 275 or 280.
Jewelcrafting Master (up to 375)
From about 280, you can craft Sapphire of Winter Night to reach 300 (1 each Powerful Mojo, Thorium Setting, Essence of Earth). Otherwise you can create Onslaught Rings (1 each Blue Sapphire, Thorium Setting, Essence of Undeath). From 290 to 300 you can also make Emerald Lion Rings (2 Huge Emerald and 1 Thorium Setting each).
At 300 you can begin to cut gems for your skill points, here are the basic gems you may want to cut to continue leveling your Jewelcrafting.
To 305 – Brilliant Golden Draenite, Radiant Deep Peridot, Glowing Shadow Draenite, Flame Spessarite, Solid Azure Moonstone, or Teardrop Blood Garnet.
To 315 – Jagged Deep Peridot, Bold Blood Garnet, Bright Blood Garnet, or Sparkling Azure Moonstone.
To 325 – Glinting Flame Spessarite
To 355 – Sovereign Shadow Draenite, Smooth Golden Draenite, or Rigid Golden Draenite. (You can also create Mercurial Adamantite to help you reach 355 and use it to attain 375 later.)
To 365 – Purified Shadow Pearl
To 375 – You can cut rare (blue) gems until you reach 375, or you can try to attain it by crafting 11 Khorium Band of Leaves (22 Khorium Bars, 44 Mercurial Adamantite, 33 Primal Life) or by making Figurines like Felsteel Boar (8 Felsteel Bars, 2 Blood Garnet, 4 Primal Earth) and Talasite Owl (2 Eternium Bars, 2 Talasite, 4 Primal Mana).
To get many uncommon and rare gems you can Prospect different kinds of ore. This destroys the ore, however, and you never know what you gems you might get. Beware, while prospecting is fun, it can easily become a sort of gambling habit! Good luck.
