This is a guide on how to train Enchanting economically.

As this is intended to save you money, buy only the materials you are sure you will need. If you run out, buy more. Avoid having extras, but if you do, try to sell them back on the Auction House.

Because Magic Essences (e.g. [Lesser Magic Essence] and [Greater Magic Essence]) can be freely changed between their lesser and greater forms, section totals will be in lesser forms. Step totals, however, will show whichever form is needed to complete the step.

The rods made by Blacksmiths can be very expensive on the Auction House; it will save you time and money to find a Blacksmith to make all the rods at once.

The best source of materials is from your own disenchanting. Higher level characters have a much easier time of obtaining materials by farming instances of significantly lower levels. For example, a level 70 character can easily farm Shadowfang Keep for uncommon quality items of low level in order to obtain Soul Dust and Lesser Magic Essence. Similarly, tailors can create low-level cloth items fairly readily in order to disenchant them for materials. See the Disenchanting tables for a list of what items can be used for your raw materials. NOTE: Check the Auction House for items for Disenchanting as well as dusts, essences, and shards. It may be less expensive to purchase low-level green gear than to purchase stacks of materials.

Artisan Edit

Artisan Enchanting allows 300 maximum skill, requires level 35 and 200 skill in the profession. The Formula: Enchant Bracer - Greater Stamina might be somewhat rare on the AH since the 0200Bc icon Burning Crusade expansion came out, so you can continue doing Enchant Cloak - Lesser Agility for 246-250. It may not give a skill-up every cast, but 6-7 sets of mats should get you the 5 levels needed, for cheaper than the recipe and mats.

The Lesser Mana Oil and Wizard Oil can be a very cheap way to get from 250-300 in Enchanting if you can find pre-BC mats being sold for low prices on the AH on your server. Both formulas are sold by Kania at Cenarion Hold in Silithus. If you have the Recipe: Enchant Bracer - Greater Stamina, though, you may consider using this enchantment to get 245-285 as you may not get skill-ups from the Lesser Mana Oil all the time. You may also craft the Wizard Oil for 295-299.

Enchant Chest - Major Health is a very cheap way of getting from 275 to 300. Small Brilliant Shard is Disenchanted from Blackrock Depths gear, and other level 42-52 dungeons.

Skill Product Qty. Materials (Total)
225 Enchant Boots - Stamina
Req. Runed Truesilver Rod
235 Enchant Chest - Superior Health
Req. Runed Truesilver Rod
240 Enchant Cloak - Lesser Agility
Req. Runed Truesilver Rod
245 Enchant Bracer - Greater Stamina
Req. Runed Truesilver Rod
250 Lesser Mana Oil 25
275 Enchant Chest - Major Health 25
295 Runed Arcanite Rod 1

Artisan Enchanting Totals

A cheaper alternative is to use Enchant Shield - Greater Stamina (10 Dream Dust) to level from 265-299 and finish to 300 with the Runed Arcanite Rod.

Master Edit

Master Enchanting allows 375 maximum skill, requires level 50. (Note that as a Blood Elf, conversion between Large Prismatic Shards and Small Prismatic Shards becomes possible at 335 and can be used for free skillups until 345 just by converting back and forth.)

Skill Product Qty. Materials (Total)
300 Enchant Chest - Restore Mana Prime
Req. Runed Truesilver Rod
330 Enchant Chest - Major Spirit
Req. Runed Fel Iron Rod
340 Superior Wizard Oil 10
