Tailoring Specializations in Wrath of the Lich King

Tailoring is one of the few Professions in WotLK to keep its specializations, although they play a much smaller role than they did in previous expansions. All 3 specializations still exist, Mooncloth Tailoring IconMooncloth Tailoring, Spellfire Tailoring IconSpellfire Tailoring and Shadoweave Tailoring IconShadoweave Tailoring; but instead of providing unique gear based on your specialization, you simply only gain double the amount of specialty cloth made every cooldown.

WotLK has 3 new cloths available at level 415 Tailoring; Ebonweave Icon Ebonweave, Moonshroud Icon Moonshroud, and Spellweave Icon Spellweave. These cloths have nearly a 4-day cooldown, making them valuable to craft every time they are available. Whichever specialization you pick will increase the cloth crafted from 1 to 2.

Unlocking a specialization requires you to be Level 60, have 350 Tailoring skill and complete one of the quests down below. After unlocking a specialization, you are able to change between the 3 options for a fee of 170g by talking with the quest givers below.

  • Becoming a Shadoweave TailorAndrion Darkspinner in Shattrath City.
  • Becoming a Spellfire TailorGidge Spellweaver in Shattrath City.
  • Becoming a Mooncloth TailorNasmara Moonsong in Shattrath City.
