TBC Classic Tailoring Profession and Leveling 1-375 Guide

Last updated on Jun 03, 2021 at 02:00 by Crix 1 comment

Tailoring offers many different gear options throughout all Phases of TBC Classic, with many of them being best-in-slot for some specialisations.

In this guide, we will show you all the different gear available to Tailoring, how to train the profession, unlock its different specializations, and many other things.



Tailoring is one of the most powerful and game changing Professions in TBC. It allows you to make extremely strong armor sets that many classes like Warlocks, Priests, Mages, and even some Shamans and Druids, use these sets for both their caster specs and their healing specs. Some powerful sets like Spellfire Set, Frozen Shadoweave, Primal Mooncloth, and even BiS enchants like Runic Spellthread Icon Runic Spellthread, new bags, and so much more are available to tailors.

Tailoring is often paired with Enchanting, so as to disenchant the stuff you make while leveling it up, but this is not mandatory. Another option is a gathering profession like Herbalism or Mining.

You may also find that Tailoring 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:


Changes from Classic to TBC

Not much changes from Classic to TBC in terms of leveling up your Tailoring profession 1-300, but 300-375 is quite a bit different than what you may be used to from Classic. The main cloth that you can expect to use during your Tailoring adventures in TBC is Netherweave Cloth Icon Netherweave Cloth. This will be used to craft all3 sorts of cloth, including some very important ones like Bolt of Imbued Netherweave Icon Bolt of Imbued Netherweave, which is used to make very important Tailoring pieces, Bolt of Soulcloth Icon Bolt of Soulcloth, which is vital for Shadow Resistance gear that you will need later in Black Temple. There is also the all-important Specialization gear, which includes Spellcloth Icon Spellcloth, Shadowcloth Icon Shadowcloth, and Primal Mooncloth Icon Primal Mooncloth.


Where to Train Tailoring

For Classic, there are now Tailoring trainers located at all major Cities and will be able to teach you Tailoring from Apprentice to Artisan.

For TBC, the Tailoring Trainer that will teach you Master Tailoring is located in Honor Hold if you are Alliance and Thrallmar if you are Horde.

For the new TBC Specializations, all the trainers are located in Shattrath City in the Lower City district and they are all also located relatively close to each other. Take note that this is also where the Mana Loom is, which will be needed to craft Bolt of Imbued Netherweave Icon Bolt of Imbued Netherweave.


Tailoring Specializations

Tailoring had 3 specialisations introduced to it in TBC Classic, each having their own role and use. Shadoweave Tailoring IconShadoweave Tailoring, Spellfire Tailoring IconSpellfire Tailoring, and Mooncloth Tailoring IconMooncloth Tailoring are each used on their own to create extremely powerful sets of gear that will carry them easily into T4 and, for some, even into T5.

Once you reach 350, you can choose to train as one of these Specializations by simply going to Shattrath City in Outland and selecting one, leading to a simple quest. While you can make any of these cloths as a Tailor, if you are one of these specializations you can craft TWO rather than just one. This is huge because, with each craft, there is a very long cooldown and this doubles your amount of speciality cloth!

Along with the double craft on cloth, each specialization has a special set of armor that they can craft and each set comes with superb stats, a ton of sockets, and even a set bonus.

  • 3-set Primal Mooncloth: Primal Mooncloth Robe Icon Primal Mooncloth Robe, Primal Mooncloth Belt Icon Primal Mooncloth Belt, Primal Mooncloth Shoulders Icon Primal Mooncloth Shoulders
    • Set bonus: increases your Spell Power, restores Mana every 5 seconds. Set bonus: Allows 5% of your mana to regenerate while casting.
  • 3-set Frozen Shadoweave: Frozen Shadoweave Shoulders Icon Frozen Shadoweave Shoulders, Frozen Shadoweave Boots Icon Frozen Shadoweave Boots, Frozen Shadoweave Robe Icon Frozen Shadoweave Robe
    • Set bonus: your Frost and Shadow damage spells heal you for 2% of the damage they deal.
  • 3-set Spellfire Set: Spellfire Belt Icon Spellfire Belt, Spellfire Gloves Icon Spellfire Gloves, Spellfire Robe Icon Spellfire Robe
    • Set bonus: increases Spell Power and Critical Strike and your Spell Damage by up to 7% of your Intellect.

Shadoweave Tailoring

In order to be a Shadoweave Tailor, you must find Andrion Darkspinner at 66.6, 67.2 and get the quest Becoming a Shadoweave Tailor. He will then send you out to Shadowmoon Valley to an altar called the Altar of Shadows. After that, simply head back to Shattrath and Andrion Darkspinner will then teach you Shadoweave Tailoring, allowing you to craft Shadowcloth Icon Shadowcloth.


Spellfire Tailoring

In order to be a Spellfire Tailor, you must find Gidge Spellweaver located at 6.6, 68.6 and pick up the quest Becoming a Spellfire Tailor. She will then give you Nether-wraith Beacon Icon Nether-wraith Beacon, which you must take out to Area 52 in Netherstorm, where you use the item and it will summon a Furious Nether-wraith that you then must kill, dropping a Nether-wraith Essence Icon Nether-wraith Essence. Bring that Essence back to Gidge Spellweaver and she will teach you Spellfire Tailoring.


Mooncloth Tailoring

In order to be a Mooncloth Tailor, you must find Nasmara Moonsong located at 66.4, 69.0 and pick up the quest Becoming a Mooncloth Tailor. He will then give you Sample of Primal Mooncloth Icon Sample of Primal Mooncloth, which you must take to Cenarion Refuge in Zangarmarsh, where you will then have to imbue the sample on the moonwell located in the middle of Cenarion Refuge. Once done, you can return to Lower City in Shattrath and Nasmara Moonsong will then teach you Mooncloth Tailoring. This also allows you to craft the powerful Primal Mooncloth Set.
