Levels

1-2
Make 1x [Runed Copper Rod].
================================================== ==================================================
2-50
You must disenchant any green item you come across or you can do about 48 x [Enchant Bracer: Minor Health] – 48 Strange Dust.
================================================== ==================================================
50-135
At this point you will go to your nearest city if you are not there already to learn (Enchanting Journeyman).
================================================== ==================================================

40x [Enchant Bracer: Minor Health] -40 Strange Dust.
================================================== ==================================================

110-135

If you are on the Alliance side you must go to Ashenvale and find Dalria -Coords:35.0,52.0. After you find ether of these npcs you will buy these two recipes form them: [Enchant Bracer – Lesser Strength] – [Enchant Cloak: Minor Agility].

25x [Enchant Cloak: Minor Agility] -25 Lesser Astral Essence.
================================================== ==================================================
135 – 220

135-155
20x [Enchant Bracer – Lesser Stamina] -40 Soul Dust.
================================================== ==================================================

156-185
40X [Enchant Bracer – Lesser Strength] -80 Soul Dust.

This one turns yellow at 165, however if 2 Soul Dust is a lot cheaper than 1 Lesser Mystic Essence, keep making these until 185. If it’s not then at 165 switch to:
================================================== ==================================================
165-185
20x [Enchant Bracer: Spirit] -20 Lesser Mystic Essence.
================================================== ==================================================

================================================== ==================================================

================================================== ==================================================
220-225
5x [Enchant Cloak: Greater Defense] -15 Vision Dust.

It all depends on your realm but if Lesser Nether Essence is too expensive, make this until 230.
================================================== ==================================================

5x [Enchant Gloves: Agility] -5 Lesser Nether Essence, 5 Vision Dust.
================================================== ==================================================
230-235

================================================== ==================================================
240-250
10x [Enchant Boots – Lesser Accuracy] -40 Vision Dust, 10 Lesser Nether Essence.

Try to hunt for [Formula: Enchant Bracer – Greater Stamina] on the AH. It’s a random world drop, but this recipe is the best to level Enchanting from 245 to 265.
Do not mistaken for boots enchant.
================================================== ==================================================
250-260
10x [Lesser Mana Oil] -30 Dream Dust, 20 Purple Lotus, 10 Crystal Vial.

Recipe sold byKania at Silithus.

If you wish you may also make [Enchanted Thorium Bar] this is an alternative if you don’t have Purple Lotus. The recipe will be yellow when you learn it and it turns green at 255, but it is pretty cheap to make. You can also just continue to make the previous recipe up to 265.

260-265
5x [Enchant Bracer – Greater Intellect] -15 Lesser Eternal Essence.
================================================== ==================================================
265-299
40x [Enchant Shield: Greater Stamina] -200 Dream Dust.

Recipe location – Watch out! This one binds when picked up. Don’t make the mistake of trying to buy it with an alt and mail it. It’s also a limited supply item, this means you have to wait if someone bought it before you.
================================================== ==================================================
299-300
1x[Runed Arcanite Rod] -1 Arcanite Rod, 10 Illusion Dust, 4 Greater Eternal Essence, 1 Runed Truesilver Rod, 2 Large Brilliant Shard.
================================================== ==================================================

================================================== ==================================================
301-310
9x [Enchant Bracer: Assault] -54 Arcane Dust.
================================================== ==================================================
310-320
10x [Enchant Bracer – Brawn] -60 Arcane Dust.
================================================== ==================================================
320-330
12x [Enchant Gloves – Assault] -96 Arcane Dust.

If Arcane Dust is expensive on your realm, or you don’t want to level with a yellow recipe because it’s based on luck how many skill points you gain, then you should make the following recipe:

10x [Enchant Chest – Major Spirit] -20 Greater Planar Essence.
================================================== ==================================================
330-335
5x [Enchant Shield – Major Stamina] -75 Arcane Dust

Recipe sold by Madame Ruby at Shattrath City. While you are here, you should also buy the next two recipe in the guide. Do not leave Outland until you bought them. Just click on the links below and see where they are. Superior Wizard Oil is also sold by Madame Ruby.
================================================== ==================================================
335-340
5x [Enchant Shield – Resilience] -5 Large Prismatic Shard, 20 Lesser Planar Essence

There is an alternative really cheap method, but only Blood Elves can benefit from it. Due to their Racial Ability it allows them to gain ten free skill ups by converting a Large Prismatic Shard into three Small Prismatic Shards and back again. Only the conversion from three Small Prismatic Shards to one Large Prismatic Shard is effected by this. Therefore, you will only have the chance to gain skill ups half of the time (since the other half of the time you’ll be converting back to three Small Prismatic Shards). This can make for a fairly lengthy session in gaining your ten free levels.

What you need:
[Formula: Large Prismatic Shard]
[Formula: Small Prismatic Shard]
================================================== ==================================================
340-350
15x [Superior Wizard Oil] -45 Arcane Dust, 15 Nightmare Vine, 15 Crystal Vial.

================================================== ==================================================
