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.


Tailoring Profession Bonus in Wrath of the Lich King

Tailoring offers the ability to craft some great end-game gear, as well as some powerful, unique cloak enchants. These cloak enchants have an amount of randomness to them as they are procs instead of passive stat increases. These enchants will be lost if you get rid of Tailoring.
