Enchanting Guide Classic WoW

May-20-2020 PST
Welcome to our guide for Enchanting in WoW Classic! Enchanting is a primary profession that allows players to add permanent buffs to weapons and equipment, as well as the ability to make Wands, consumables and reagents used by some other professions. Enchanters also have access to the Disenchant spell, which allows you to destroy objects for materials used for Enchant objects or sold on the Auction House. Enchanting can be efficient and very useful for both PvE and PvP situations because it is used extensively.

This guide will cover the enchanting aspects such as recommended second primary professions and classes, how to enchant and acquire enchanting recipes and objects, how to use enchanting rods, trainer locations, and a suggested route to take your Enchanting Skill Points to level 300.

Before we jump into it, you should know that wow gold collectors also learn the Disenchant ability while practising Enchanting. This will allow players to kill and turn Uncommon, Rare, and Epic quality objects into enchantment materials such as Dream Dust, Greater Eternal Essence, and Small Radiant Shard. Things that cannot be equipped cannot be disenchanted, except for bags (because they are equipped). To enchant an object, the Enchanter is required to have a rod in its inventory. You will need various rods as you level up your skill, all of which can be made from your Enchanting Spell book. Rods are further clarified within this guide.

Professions to Pair

Enchanting is a primary profession, and in Classic WoW you can have only two primary professions active at once. Enchanting combines well with Tailoring, Leatherworking or Blacksmithing, as these professions produce equipment that can be disenchanted. Tailoring is normally combined with Enchanting because you can loot the fabric you need for tailored pieces without having to learn a trade of collecting (such as skinning for leatherwork). Then these tailored pieces can be Disenchanted into dust.


Enchanting is important to craft the Smoking Heart of the Mountain Trinket for druids interested in Tanking, but it can be dropped after crafting. Cloth-wearers (Mage, Priest, Warlock) need wands to level from 1-60, and Enchanting is a source of two easy-to-get wands: Lesser Magic Wand and Greater Magic Wand. Tailoring goes well with Enchanting, as discussed in the section above, and cloth-wearers will outfit and profit from designed tailoring gears. Enchants can also produce Wizard Oils which casters can use as consumables.

Enchanting Items

Using the Trade Gui you can enchant your own equipment, as well as other faction matches. Open a trade and have your player position their item at the bottom of the window in the "will not be traded" section. In the Profession UI select the desired enchant and then click on the object. Enchanters will order tips to provide players with unique enchantments, so if you have a special recipe you may want to advertise in Trade.

Enchanting Rods

If you have an Enchanting Rod in your Stock, you won't be able to enchant an object. The following is a list of the types of rods per skill level you'll need: Runed Copper Rod: Copper Rod, Strange Powder, Lesser Magic Essence, Enchanting Levels 1-130, Learned from Trainer.

Levelling Guide

As with all World of Warcraft professions, the player earns skill points when he performs a specific task. The frequency at which those skill points are earned by the player is proportional to their current skill level. You can see this through the colour codes: Orange – Always granting a skill point, Yellow – Frequently granting a skill point, Green – Infrequently granting a skill point and Grey – Does not grant a skill point.

Getting Materials

All Enchanting Reagents must come from the ability to use Disenchant. Generally, the reagents extracted from damaged objects depend on the level of the item. Below you'll find all the reagents you can get that can be used to craft things and add enchantments to items.

Disenchanting Gear

Disenchant can permanently destroy an object, rendering it enchanting materials— dusts, fragments, essences, crystals. Your disenchanted gear level correlates directly with how strong the reagents are going to be. Disenchanting the top gear in Classic WoW will yield reagents needed for high-end Enchanting Recipes, as covered in our section on Reagents. Use the Disenchant ability found on any uncommon, rare, or epic gear in your spell book to deceive an object. If you accidentally start disenchanting an object, move or hit Escape to cancel the cast.
