Jewelcrafting is one of World of Warcraft’s most valuable professions It allows players to insert stat-boosting gems into their own armor, earn huge at auctions and gain a wide variety of other profession perks for all classes. Our WotLK Jewelcrafting guide will help you understand why Jewelcrafting is so important, what сut gems are necessities in any raider, what other profession is usually paired with it, where to find trainers and how to level Jevelcrafting itself.
WotLK Classic Jewelcrafting Bonuses and Benefits
Since the addition of Jewelcrafting in the TBC expansion, players got an opportunity to insert gems into their armor, while jewelers sold them at auction for a substantial profit. Most high-level gear can be upgraded with gems, so players always want to get them.
Wrath Classic Jewelcrafters use their founding skill Prospecting to find gems in raw ore to cut them out, destroying the minerals in the process. Therefore, Jewelcrafting is usually used in tandem with Mining as a collector skill.
With the advent of Lich King Classic, Jewelcrafter crafting is even more important to endgame content. Luminous Ametrine, Regal Dreadstone, or Sundered Eye of Zul are essential in a raider’s or PvP specialist’s endgame gear. With the addition of daily tokens, Jewelcrafters can purchase items such as Design: Nightmare Tear to create +10 to all stats any socket stone. So you can’t go wrong picking Jewelcrafting, because it is at least a good way to gold making.
