WotLK Tailoring guide
Tailoring is one of the most helpful professions in WoW for cloth wearers of all classes. It entails transforming the fabric you gather from monsters around Azeroth into high-powered apparel like Spellslinger’s Slippers and Royal Moonshroud Robe. Blizzard also included Embroidery in TBC, which are Tailor-specific enchants, like Sapphire Spellthread, that may significantly improve the stats on gear. Tailors, like Engineers, create profession-specific mounts such as the Frosty Flying Carpet.
Tailoring is not associated with a collecting profession because it needs treasure dropped by enemies. Instead, most players opt to level Enchanting concurrently, disenchanting extra gear for dusts and essences. There are also no things needed to begin leveling, so after you train in Apprentice, you may start leveling right away!
WotLK Tailoring guide: Training Tailoring
Trainers in every major capital can begin by teaching you Apprentice Tailoring, and you can return to them until you achieve Artisan.
Your Master trainers will be at the first questing area for your faction as you travel into Outland. The Alliance must locate Hama in Honor Hold, while the Horde must communicate with Dalinna in Thrallmar. Weaver Aoa of The Aldor and Miralisse of The Scryers are both ready to train you if you have access to Shattrath.
Specialization (All in Lower City, Shattrath)
Blizzard added three Tailoring Specializations to TBC, allowing players to select between competence with various sorts of fabric. Like other specialties, though, in WotLK, they lost a large amount of relevance. Each still offers a minor benefit, and they’re covered in further detail in the last portion of this guide. They have the following trainers:
- Nasmara Moonsong– Mooncloth
- Andrion Darkspinner– Shadoweave
- Gidge Spellweaver– Spellfire
You’ll discover your Grand Master Trainers in your first questing location after arriving in Northrend. This requires locating Darin Goodstitch in Valiance Keep for the Alliance, and Raenah in Warsong Hold for the Horde. However, because this is a power leveling tutorial, the best trainer to use if you have access to Dalaran is Charles Worth in the Magus Commerce Exchange. His closeness to the Auction House, as well as the portals that may transport you elsewhere to farm, are crucial. Dustin Vail in the Argent Tournament Grounds may also teach both factions.
WotLK Tailoring guide: Types of Cloth
While all Tailoring supplies may be acquired at the Auction House, it may be more cost-effective at times to grow your own fabric. Cloth is dropped by all humanoid mobs, and the kind varies on the mob’s level. Here is a list of farming zones:
- Linen Cloth
- Any starting area
- Wool Cloth
- Darkshore, Westfall, Ashenvale, The Barrens, Hillsbrad Foothills, Silverpine Forest,and Ghostlands
- Silk Cloth
- Ashenvale, Desolace, Stranglethorn Vale, Thousand Needles

- Frostweave Cloth
- Icecrown, Zul’Drak

WotLK Tailoring guide: Endgame Tailoring
Tailoring is divided into three specializations: Mooncloth, Spellfire, and Shadoweave. In TBC, each had a certain set to craft, but in WotLK, Blizzard has modified their function. When you make Moonshroud, Spellweave, or Ebonweave, you can now proc an extra piece of fabric. All specialized missions begin in Shattrath’s Lower City.
- To specialize in Mooncloth Tailoring, you must complete Nasmara Moonsong’s mission Becoming a Mooncloth Tailor. Then you must travel to Cenarion Refuge in Zangarmarsh.
- This will allow you to proc extra Moonshroud.
- You must first locate Gidge Spellweaver and begin Spellfire Tailoring. She’ll send you to Netherstorm, and you’ll return to Shattrath.
- Spellweaveis Spellfire’s proc.
- Andrion Darkspinner is the trainer for Shadoweave Tailoring. He’ll allow you to become a Shadoweave Tailor, which will take you to the Altar of Shadows in Shadowmoon Valley.
- Shadoweave Tailors proc on Ebonweave.
Embroidery, Bags, and Mounts
To broaden Tailoring in TBC, Blizzard included Embroidery — Tailor-specific enchants that cause objects to acquire Soulbond. It takes the shape of two Spellthread patterns in WotLK. Each can only be purchased after achieving Exalted repute with the relevant faction, and is sold by the Quartermasters indicated below. The two Embroideries are as follows:
- Pattern: Brilliant Spellthread
- Veteran Crusader Aliocha Segard– Argent Crusade
- Pattern: Sapphire Spellthread
- Archmage Alvareaux– Kirin Tor
Bags are another important and possibly valuable item made by Tailors of all levels. Profession and Class bags were raised to 32 spaces in WotLK, whereas all player bags were increased to 22. While several of the patterns may be learned via trainers, three need particular reputation levels to acquire from the faction’s Quartermasters. They are as follows:
- Pattern: Abyssal Bag
- Duchess Mynx– Revered, Ebon Blade
- Pattern: Glacial Bag
- Lillehoff– Exalted, Sons of Hodir
- Pattern: Mysterious Bag
- Cielstrasza– Revered, Wyrmrest Accord
Tailoring, like Engineering, may create its own mounts: Flying Carpets. Trainers teach the Flying Carpet and the Magnificent Flying Carpet, which may be learnt if you reach a sufficient skill level. Pattern: Frosty Flying Carpet, on the other hand, may be taught by purchasing Pattern: Frosty Flying Carpet. Frozo the Renowned in Dalaran Frosty Flying Carpet for 6x Frozen Orb
Tailoring patterns, like all crafting professions, have a minor chance to drop (or be purchased) from each raiding tier in WotLK. These patterns result in Epic, BoE gear, with some of it being BiS or pre-raiding BiS. These things are always in great demand, and Tailors who know these designs become extremely valuable to raiding groups and guilds, or stand to make a lot of money by selling their skills.
- Belt and Boot patterns drop from all monsters and caches in Ulduar. They are as follows:
- Pattern: Sash of Ancient Power
- Pattern: Spellslinger’s Slippers
- Pattern: Cord of the White Dawn
- Pattern: Savior’s Slippers
- Bosses in ToC drop patterns for chest pieces and bracers. They are as follows:
- Pattern: Royal Moonshroud Robe
- Pattern: Royal Moonshroud Bracers
- Pattern: Merlin’s Robe
- Pattern: Bejeweled Wizard’s Bracers
- Tailors can purchase ICC designs from Alchemist Finklestein on the Citadel’s Lower Level for the price of one Primordial Saronite. They are for legs and footwear and include the following:
- Pattern: Leggings of Woven Death
- Pattern: Deathfrost Boots
- Pattern: Lightweave Leggings
- Pattern: Sandals of Consecration
