[WotLK] Jewelcrafting 1 to 450

dark_fanboy's picture

The following is how I prefer to level my Jewelcrafting. I've used this guide several times and seems to work well enough for myself. Shortly after finishing my Blacksmithing guide I started on this one but never found the time to get it posted. So here it is for your approval. As always I based this guide off of information gathered from www.wowhead.com using the updated level ranges for professions. I'm looking for feedback to see if there are any possible ways to smooth it out or if there are better options because of material costs.

As you enter this level of Jewelcrafting you're going to start making socketable gems more than you will be making jewelry. For leveling purposes you're going to be making mostly random gems until there are stable pieces of jewelry to provide solid points for leveling. If you haven't already noticed you're going to be using a lot of raw ore as a jewelcrafter, and this can be quite expensive if you do not have a gathering profession or a dedicated gatherer.

-- List of Materials --

- Mining and Prospecting-
* 10 Fel Iron Bars
* 15 Adamantite Bars
* 200 Adamantite Ore (Prospect for Adamantite Powder)
* 20 Blood Garnet and/or 20 Golden Draenite
* 10 Primal Earth

NOTE: By prospecting the 200 Adamantite Ore this should give you a sufficient number of uncommon gems if you do not wish to waste time farming Fel Iron Ore for the start of this guide.

As you prospect you're going to receive random colored uncommon gems. You'll want to reserve certain gems during specific phases. From 300 to 310 Make sure to save up 10 Blood Garnet and/or Golden Draenite, you only need 20 total combined not 20 of each. After you finish making the rings from 311 to 320 ALL other gems are fair game to make from 321 to 325. When you make gems from 321 to 325 be sure you're making gems that you learned at 315 and not 305.

For the 350 to 375 Random Socketable Gems there is a large number of gems in the Grand Master segment that I'm not going to try to list them here. Please consult wowhead or your crafting manual in game. Also of note we've gone back to making jewelry due to the availability of the materials. Thankfully in the Grand Master segment the gems are now orange skill level and offer solid points for skill leveling. By the time you've leveled past the random gems you should have enough Crystallized and Eternal Earth that it will expedite the leveling. Much like the Random Socketable Gems I've listed several options from 376 to 390 for jewelry, simply make the items that you have the gems available at that time. I would recommend you pick one specific type that you have an abundance of and reserve those for one of the pieces of jewelry for when you finish the random Socketable Gems segment.

Unfortunately, a lot of the guide writers just don't play anymore.  Does it suck?  Yes, but there has been a module added to the add-on that includes profession leveling.

Ok, wow. Sounds like this guide needs some serious updating. I'll have to get to work on it as soon as I can. I apologize for being gone so long, but a great deal happened and took priority.

Your guide is pretty good, I

Your guide is pretty good, I found its very expensive to level JC, took my about 2k gold to get the mats from lvl 1-35, but its gonna be worth it.
The mats for Citrine ring of rapid healing have changed, you do no longer need the elemental waters. The elemental earths were a pain though, the ownly downside to this guide (or JC itself). They are rarely sold in the AH and farming them is very slow. The best place to farm them is in de badlands, there are around 4 solid spawning areas for rock elementals there, but they only have a 6-10% drop chance.

This needs a lot of work

Normally when I start a profession leveling guide, I just head straight to the shopping list and start gathering materials.

So of course when I gather the first batch of materials and find that you didn't bother to list some of the items I would need in your guide (coarse stone, for example), I got annoyed. At least I hadn't given all of it away or (even worse) destroyed it. I just had to go get it off the mule I had sent it to.

Next up - Gloom Band requires more copper wire... so why don't you just have people making more of that, since it's still yellow at 20, rather than useless statutes?

I'm hoping that this will not be an indication of how the rest of the guide will be going.

You note that you can

You note that you can prospect the adamantite ore for all the gems you need in the Outland section - however this is not correct. I couldn't prospect this ore at first, I think I was around 320 or 325 JC before I could prospect it. So you will need Fel Iron Ore to get the gems for the first part of that section, or you'll need to buy the gems.

I'm thinking about throwing

I'm thinking about throwing away 2000g away to go from 1-450 will that be enough and do you think it is worth it?

For 286-290

You recommend Glowing Thorium Band for leveling from 286-290. However, for me, the Diamond Focus Ring stayed orange until 290. Given that it takes only 1 Azerothian Diamond instead of the two used by the Glowing Thorium Band, I'd recommend it. However, I'm a Dranei so I'm not sure if that extra +5 to JCing is screwing things up. I just wanted to pass it along.

Hello

I think there's a gap between 70 and 81 on this guide. I made Coarse Stone Statues to fill it in, but I thought I'd let you know. If there actually isn't a gap and I'm missing something, please correct me.

NOTE: By prospecting the 200

NOTE: By prospecting the 200 Adamantite Ore this should give you a sufficient number of uncommon gems if you do not wish to waste time farming Fel Iron Ore for the start of this guide.

very good guide but i spent a lot of time farming adamantite only to find out that it is only prospectable at 325 so i had to go back to farm some fel iron.

Holy poop on a stick!!!

/facepalm

More epic fayl on my part... I blame Jiyambi and Jame for not proofing my work...

/shiftyeyes

alt + f4 = Quick escape!!!

Edit: Side note, for now I'm just going to make it Coarse stone statues, because quite simply when you get to this point in the guide you should have more coarse stone than you know what to do with.

I'm currently using this for my Death Knight and so far everything has gone well. Thanks!

I agree about the shadow gems I am buying all the ones I can while prospecting tin/copper but still seem to be coming up short. I used the heavy jade ring and Iron collar for fillers to help through that section. However, depending on the server the mats for these may be easy/hard to obtain.

Thanks for your hard work!

Glad to hear its going well.

Glad to hear its going well. I was able to thin out the amount of Shadowgems, but its still a pain in that section without have to go into other items that could be harder to make.

correct me if i'm wrong

/* did not try your guide I just read it*/

- You suggested to make 20 Delicate Copper Wire(dcw) s (1-20) but then used more then 20. Since more will be needed and dcw greys at 50 they should be made from the very start. (then rough stone statue part will be skipped)
- Same goes for bronze setting&thourium setting

dark_fanboy's picture

The problem with making

The problem with making things until they go gray is that you waste time and you never know how much in the way of materials you'll need once the item turns yellow. I only use items while they're orange, which means that yes, you will return to items that have already turned gray to progress. This is a sad fact of the nature of Jewelcrafting unlike Blacksmithing where you don't need a large number of fabricated components, just raw materials.

Barbaric Iron Collar and

Currently skilling JC with your guide, it's good but I get stuck at a few places since, for some God forsaken reason, there are rarely any gems at all on the AH, so I have mostly used it with a few tweaks here and there, but what I did was that I skipped the "Ring of Twilight Shadows" on 121-130 and replaced them with Barbaric Iron Collars. Mats: 8 Iron Bars, 2 Large Fangs, 2 Bronze settings.
It costs a lot of Iron bars, but you get the chance to skip the Shadowgems in favour of Large Fangs, which you should be able to get from alts/AH/trade chat (I got mine after two minutes or so on the trade chat).

Also I chose to replace the Diamond Focus Ring and Glowing Thorium Band (280-290) with Onslaught rings (1 Powerful Mojo, 1 Essence of Earth, 1 Thorium Setting) Because I ran out of gems. I was training mining so I had a lot of raw ores but I got unlucky on prospects.
