Powerleveling Guide for Classic Blacksmithing

This guide is based on previous work by Willhelm, Highlander and Celaborn. Much appreciation to them for their excellent Blacksmithing guides.

I've mapped out what I believe to be the best route to take in order to minimize wasted time and gold when leveling your Blacksmithing profession.

This guide is based upon the following assumptions:

1. You have reached level 60 (or are close to it) and want to powerlevel your Blacksmithing skill to 300 as quickly as possible.

2. You are only interested in trainer recipes and/or recipes that can be obtained with minimal effort.

3. You have an alt set aside to hold all of the materials you'll need to level up your Blacksmithing. I recommend sending mats to your alt in the order provided below, and when you're ready, returning them in reverse order.

4. Whenever possible, you'll only want to craft items that are Orange or Yellow difficulty, for maximum skill gain. When required to craft Yellow and/or Green difficulty items, I've adjusted the required materials to account for less than 100% skill gain per item created. I've also listed alternate recipes and materials in red to give you additional options to consider.

Total Materials Needed to Get to 300 Blacksmithing

Listed below are the materials you'll need and the order in which you should craft items to get to 300 Blacksmithing as efficiently as possible. It's highly recommended that you farm some of these materials yourself and/or purchase them from the auction house over a span of several days, because your need for certain items (Iron/Steel Bars, Solid Stone, Mithril Bars, Thorium Bars, etc.) will most likely surpass the available supply on the AH at any given time.

Rough Stone 260
Coarse Stone 240
Silver Bar 5
Bronze Bar 115
Heavy Stone 300
Gold Bar 21
Iron Bar 336
Green Dye 35
Steel Bar 519
Strong Flux 16
Lesser Moonstone 12
Heavy Leather 28
Solid Stone 908 (Alternatively, buy up any cheap Solid Grinding Stone on the AH as a substitute for 4 Solid Stone, for use in making Mithril Spurs)
Mithril Bar 316
Citrine 4
Black Pearl 2
Shadowgem 8
Thick Leather 4
Dense Stone 30
Thorium Bar 420
