This page covers everything you need to know about leveling Jewelcrafting in the Shadowlands expansion from 1-100, as well as how to make gold with the profession.

1.

Jewelcrafting in Shadowlands

Jewelcrafting allows you to create gems to socket in gear, as well as bind-on-equip rings and necklaces, including Legendary base items, which can be infused with Soul Ash Icon Soul Ash by the Runecarver in Torghast in order to gain unique powers.

You can also make a transmogrify headpiece, Crown of the Righteous Icon Crown of the Righteous, which is very cheap to make and does look quite nice as you can see for yourself below!

Leveling Jewelcrafting from 1-100 in Shadowlands

Reaching 100 skill in Shadowlands Jewelcrafting is quick, and you will probably make a profit while leveling, as ores are quite cheap and the gems sell very well with the extra sockets available, not to mention the bind on equip gear which people buy to quickly gain item level to access the LFG system.

The trainer can be found in Oribos, in the southwestern part of the Hall of Shapes:

1-45 Shadowlands Jewelcrafting

Prospect ore (Laestrite Ore Icon Laestrite Ore tends to be the cheapest) until Level 20 and Mass Prospect more ore until Level 45.

You can use the resulting materials to make more gold later, so this comes at either no cost or a profit!

Craft Crafter's Mark I Icon Crafter's Mark I until Level 50, Deadly Jewel Cluster Icon Deadly Jewel Cluster until Level 60, and Quick Jewel Cluster Icon Quick Jewel Cluster until Level 70.

This is where we start to get into the most common wares of Jewelcrafting, making gems to socket into gear is the bread and butter of the profession, and will usually earn you a few gold pieces while leveling up.

You will be crafting more gems and some bind on equip gear until Level 100, which often sells well as it is a fast and cheap way to gear up new characters for the LFG system. Remember to use the gems you crafted in the previous step as materials for this final step!

Making Gold with Jewelcrafting in Shadowlands

Making Gold with Jewelcrafting is all about buying cheap ore or gems and either prospecting it in hopes of hitting expensive gems or crafting gear and gems that might be well priced in the auction house at the moment, such as Legendaries. Check the prices of various gems and Jewelcrafting gear on your server with The Undermine Journal and use that information to guide you on what you should be crafting, as that can vary a lot between servers.

Typically selling gems in the afternoon of hot raid days such as Wednesday and Sunday is a good bet!

3.1.

Legendaries

Crafting Legendaries is one of the main benefits of being a Jewelcrafter in Shadowlands. It also helps that the materials to craft these tend to be much cheaper than those needed for the other Legendary gear, and as such these are appealing slots for cost-conscious players.

In order to learn how to craft legendaries, talk to the Runecarver in Torghast once you have 100 skill points in Jewelcrafting. Afterwards, you are able to learn the legendary base item recipes at your trainer in Oribos, for 25g each.

There are currently 4 ranks of Legendaries you can craft, with each new rank requiring more materials, having higher item level and requiring more Soul Ash. Because you can only craft a ring or an amulet, it is much easier and cheaper to hit the highest ranks, overall. Here are the materials for each legendary rank:

Name Rank Crafting Materials Required
Shadowghast Ring 1 20 Shadowghast Ingot Icon Shadowghast Ingot, 10 Essence of Rebirth Icon Essence of Rebirth, 10 Essence of Torment Icon Essence of Torment, 10 Orboreal Shard Icon Orboreal Shard
Shadowghast Ring 2 30 Shadowghast Ingot Icon Shadowghast Ingot, 15 Essence of Rebirth Icon Essence of Rebirth, 15 Essence of Torment Icon Essence of Torment, 15 Orboreal Shard Icon Orboreal Shard
Shadowghast Ring 3 50 Shadowghast Ingot Icon Shadowghast Ingot, 25 Essence of Rebirth Icon Essence of Rebirth, 25 Essence of Torment Icon Essence of Torment, 25 Orboreal Shard Icon Orboreal Shard
Shadowghast Ring 4 80 Shadowghast Ingot Icon Shadowghast Ingot, 40 Essence of Rebirth Icon Essence of Rebirth, 40 Essence of Torment Icon Essence of Torment, 40 Orboreal Shard Icon Orboreal Shard
Shadowghast Necklace 1 20 Shadowghast Ingot Icon Shadowghast Ingot, 10 Essence of Rebirth Icon Essence of Rebirth, 10 Essence of Torment Icon Essence of Torment, 10 Orboreal Shard Icon Orboreal Shard
Shadowghast Necklace 2 30 Shadowghast Ingot Icon Shadowghast Ingot, 15 Essence of Rebirth Icon Essence of Rebirth, 15 Essence of Torment Icon Essence of Torment, 15 Orboreal Shard Icon Orboreal Shard
Shadowghast Necklace 3 50 Shadowghast Ingot Icon Shadowghast Ingot, 25 Essence of Rebirth Icon Essence of Rebirth, 25 Essence of Torment Icon Essence of Torment, 25 Orboreal Shard Icon Orboreal Shard
Shadowghast Necklace 4 80 Shadowghast Ingot Icon Shadowghast Ingot, 40 Essence of Rebirth Icon Essence of Rebirth, 40 Essence of Torment Icon Essence of Torment, 40 Orboreal Shard Icon Orboreal Shard

You will learn how to craft the next rank every time you craft 15 legendaries of a given rank, as the experience needed and experience awarded per craft increase equally.

Also, later in the expansion, secondary stats will start becoming more valuable, making these slots more appealing as legendaries.

3.2.

Starter Gear

You can craft rings and necklaces with multiple stat distributions that always have a socket, making them naturally more powerful than gear at a similar item level. These typically sell well for new characters, and are very cheap to make.

3.3.

Prospecting

While it is a activity with a high degree of randomness, simply buying cheap ore and prospecting it for a chance at more valuable gems than the cost of the ore you just prospected is a quick and easy way to make gold with Jewelcrafting, as long as you are not unlucky, that is!

3.4.

Socketable Gems

Besides the secondary stat gems that players always need to socket into their gear, you can also craft special gems such as Straddling Jewel Doublet Icon Straddling Jewel Doublet and Revitalizing Jewel Doublet Icon Revitalizing Jewel Doublet, which have special niche uses on speed and solo farming gear sets.

3.5.

Transmog

You can craft Crown of the Righteous Icon Crown of the Righteous for a profit, although it might sell somewhat slowly, as most transmog pieces do. Make sure to check prices and sell volumes before committing to a lot of stock here!
