Enchanting is a profession that is used to create or make magical formulas that can grant buffs to armours, weapons, and other items in the game. Collecting ingredients aren’t the sole items that you need to make formulas because, without the respective recipe, you cannot learn the art of Enchanting. These recipes can be gathered from vendors across the game or by defeating various mobs in dungeons. The ingredients that are used for Enchanting can create items that can add up stat bonuses, such as strength, intellect, and much more!

From level 50, you can start with Enchant Bracer: Minor Health, requiring Strange Dust to make. Continue the process till level 90, and then switch to Enchant Bracer: Minor Stamina till level 100 (Requirement: Strange Dust). If you feel that Greater Magic Essence is too expensive for you to purchase, then you can continue with Strange Dust enchantment till level 120. In case you have a good supply of Greater Magic Essence and Simple Wood, you can start will enchanting Greater Magic Wands from level 100 to 110. Simple Wood can be bought from a supply vendor, located nearby your respective trainer. At level 110, you have to head to the Stonetalon Mountains (Horde Faction Players) or Ashenvale (Alliance Faction Players) to locate Kulwia or Dalria, respectively. Purchase the two recipes called Enchant Bracer: Lesser Strength and Enchant Cloak: Minor Agility from them and start making the formulas to level 135. Enchant Cloak: Minor Agility will require you to have Lesser Astral Essences.
Levels 135 to 220

Now, switch to Enchant Boots: Stamina (Vision Dust) till 235, Enchant Chest: Superior Health (Vision Dust) till 240, and then Enchant Boots: Lesser Accuracy (Vision Dust and Lesser Nether Essence) till level 250. If you can get the Enchant Bracer: Greater Stamina formula from the Auction House or a random world drop, then it’s best to use that from level 245 to 265. Otherwise, make Lesser Mana Oil, requiring Dream Dust, Purple Lotus, and Crystal Vial, from levels 250 to 260. The recipe can be bought from Kania, located at Silithus.

Abyss Crystal can be obtained from the old Northrend raid instances. If you can’t obtain Abyss Crystal, then make Enchant Boots: Icewalker (Infinite Dust and Crystalized Water) from level 390 to 396, and then switch to Enchant Cloak: Superior Agility (Infinite Dust) till level 405.
