TBC Classic Jewelcrafting Profession and Leveling 1-375 Guide
Jewelcrafting is a new profession introduced in TBC Classic. Its main use is to cut a new material: gems. These are items that give certain stats depending on the color and the cut that can be placed into gem sockets found on certain items. These are similar to how enchants behave, allowing you to permanently increase the stats on a specific piece of gear as long as it has open sockets.
In this guide we will go over all the different items players with Jewelcrafting can make, how gems and sockets work, as well as help you level and get the most out of your new profession.
Jewelcrafting is the newest profession added with TBC Classic. It allows you to cut precious gems and create specialty items that many players will frequently need. Here we will show you how to quickly level up your new profession.
Jewelcrafting uses ores, metals, and stone to craft. It can be quite expensive to level and maintain so pairing it with Mining can be quite beneficial, especially early on when materials will be more expensive. Mining will allow you to farm your own materials without needing to buy them on the auction house.
Make sure to buy a Simple Grinder and Jeweler's Kit from your local Jewelcrafting Supplier or General Goods vendor as these are required to make many of the different crafts available to this profession.
You may also find that Jewelcrafting can be used to complement your goldmaking in TBC Classic. For more information on this among other methods involving alternative professions, please see our separate guide on the topic:
Prospecting is a new skill that comes alongside with Jewelcrafting. It allows you to convert 5 ore into random materials, most commonly gems that are needed for many different patterns such as Jade.
Similar to how other professions work, each ore has a minimum skill required to be able to Prospect it, based on your Jewelcrafting skill. Prospecting can be an easy way to obtain some rare gems, and even profitable when used on endgame ore.

Try to craft something you can get easily that may also sell for a profit on the auction house.

Simply search the auction house for each gem name and find what is appropriate for your budget.
