Tailoring Introduction

If you are interested in training tailoring as one of your two professions the first step you need to take is to train tailoring. To do this all you need to do is head to a major city, right click a guard, click professions, click on tailoring, and following the flag on your map to the tailoring trainer. When you get to the tailoring area find the tailoring trainer and train Apprentice Tailor. Click your “Spellbook & Abilities” (P) and on the “Professions” tab you will find a tailoring button, click it. You will see that you have several formulas (Simple Linen Pants, Linen Cloak, Brown Linen Shirt, Bolt of Linen Cloth) in your book already, the trainer gave you these when you trained Apprentice Tailor. You can also train White Linen Shirt right away.

Now that you have tailoring trained you need to get the supplies for it, which consists mainly of cloth. To begin you’ll have to get linen cloth and then most recipes require other miscellaneous items which at lower levels are usually bought from a tailoring supplies vendor.

Tailoring 1-125

This is probably the cheapest and easiest part of the guide since it involves the creation of items made with linen and wool cloth and lower level recipes. Keep in mind that the number of items listed to craft is just an estimate and you might need to make more or less to reach the project skill.

1-45 Bolt of Linen Cloth 60 120 Linen Cloth Keep
45-60 Heavy Linen Glove 15 30 Bolt of Linen Cloth/15 Coarse Thread Sell

Tailoring 425-525

This is the final section of the guide and it’s actually pretty simple and fast to run through even though there are a lot of different recipes to craft. If you are out of gold at this point or are looking forward to making gold with your Tailoring check out this Gold Guide for the best ways to maximize the gold you make with your Tailoring skill now that you’ll be 525.

I suggest at 500 that you make a Dreamcloth since these will be used to make nice items or used to make gold with by selling them on the Auction House. If you don’t want to make one though, you can just begin making the Emberfire Bracers at 500.
