Enchanting Introduction

First off to get your enchanting started you’ll have to head to the enchanting trainer (which can easily be found by asking a guard in a large city). Once you are at the trainer train “Apprentice Enchanting” and by clicking your Enchanting icon in your Spellbook you will see that you can Enchant Bracer – Minor Deflection, Enchant Bracer – Minor Health, and Runed Copper Rod. You also obtained the Disenchant skill, which you will use to disenchant “green” or better items to get enchanting supplies.

You can get your enchanting supplies by disenchanting items, as mentioned above, or by buying the supplies on the auction house. Either way is fine, so use whatever method you prefer. Some players even buy items off the auction house to disenchant for supplies, so be creative.

You will find throughout this guide that you will be required to make rods, these rods are required for enchants and at higher levels they can be fairly expensive to make. When you make a new rod your old one will be consumed in the creation process and the new rod can be used for all of your old enchants which require lower level rods. The rods required in the enchanting formulas (Silver Rod, Golden Rod, Truesilver Rod, Arcanite Rod, Fel Iron Rod, Adamantite Rod, Eternium Rod, Titanium Rod, and Elementium Rod) are created by blacksmiths and can often be found for sale on the auction house. Copper Rod, which is required for your first rod is purchased from enchanting supply vendors.

For the beginning levels (1-50) you can in fact disenchant items to gain skill ups. You can actually level up slightly higher by simply disenchanting items although it becomes inefficient to do so since after 50 it becomes very slow to get skill ups. So, if you’d prefer to disenchant to get to 50, go for it, but keep these levels in mind:

Enchanting Skill Required Level Item Level
1 1-15 1-20
25 16-20 21-25
50 21-25 26-30
