Vanilla WoW Blacksmithing Guide

Leveling blacksmithing from 1 to 300 takes a significant amount of harvested materials which we’ve listed at the bottom of this post. Unless you have Dodgeykabob levels of purchased gold we recommend your second profession as mining to help gather the resources needed.

1 – 25
Rough Sharpening Stones (1 x Rough Stone) x 50

25 – 65
Rough Grinding Stones (2 x Rough Stone) x 80

65 – 75
Coarse Sharpening Stones (1 x Coarse Stone) x 30

75 – 100
Coarse Grinding Stones (2 x Coarse Stones) x 100

100 – 105
Silver Rod (1 x Silver Bar, 2 x Rough Grinding Stone) x 5

105 – 125
Rough Bronze Leggings (6 x Bronze Bar) x 20

125 – 150
Heavy Grinding Stone (3 x Heavy Stone) x 60

150 – 155
Golden Rod (1 x Gold Bar, 2 x Coarse Grinding Stone) x 5

155 – 165
Green Iron Leggings (8 x Iron Bar, 1 x Heavy Grinding Stone, 1 x Green Dye) x 10

165 – 185
Green Iron Bracers (6 x Iron Bar, 1 x Green Dye) x 20

185 – 200
Golden Scale Bracers (5 x Steel Bar, 2 x Heavy Grinding Stone) x 15

200 – 210

Golden Scale Bracers (5 x Steel Bar, 2 x Heavy Grinding Stone) x 5

215 – 235
Steel Plate Helm (14 x Steel Bar, 1 x Solid Grinding Stone) x 20

235 – 250

Note that as an alternative to some of the items listed below for levels 235 to 265, you can use Mithril Spurs (4 x Mithril Bar, 3 x Solid Grinding Stone)

  • Orange at 235
  • Yellow at 255
    • At this point on average it should still give a skill up about 75% of the times you make it, making it a better choice than any other mithril recipes at this level.
  • Yellow at 260
    • This was a turning point to me and i only got points between 33 and 50% of the times. Not worth it anymore.
  • Green at 265

Mithril Coif (10 x Mithril Bar, 6 x Mageweave Cloth) x 15
If your lucky enough to get the Mithril Spurs plans, then make those tillthey turn grey at 275. It’s by far the cheapest way to level. Unfortunately theplans are now selling for anywhere up to 300g since TBC was released.

250 – 260

260 – 270
