alt="" src="http://www.tentonhammer.com/image/view/228967">



Jewelcrafting is a primary
crafting profession introduced in the World of Warcraft: The Burning
Crusade expansion. This profession revolves around taking raw materials
and transforming them into items such as trinkets, rings, necklaces
that players can equip on their characters, as well as spectacular gems
that can be used in socketed items. Those with the determination to
level Jewelcrafting can easily turn a huge profit by creating those
items that are hot sellers on the
Auction House.

Jewelcrafting - Getting
Started

To learn Jewelcrafting you will
want to seek out your local Jewelcrafting Trainer. Trainers can be
found in every major city and even some smaller ones! Can’t
find your trainer? Don’t fret! If you are in a major city,
such as Orgrimmar or Stormwind, simply speak with a nearby guard who
will then mark the location of the trainer on your map. Once you have
located the trainer speak with him or her to learn Jewelcrafting for a
minimal fee. After learning this profession you will need to train
again to increase your rank every 50-75 skill points Below you will
find a chart breaking down the various levels of Jewelcrafting for you:

Jewelcrafting
Tools

Every great craftsman has their
tools and Jewelcrafters are no exception. Players wishing to delve into
the world of Jewelcrafting will need to equip themselves with both a
[Jeweler’s Kit] as well as a [Simple Grinder]. Both of these
items are required for the creation of high level jewelry items. The
[Simple Grinder] may be purchased from any Mining supplier, the
[Jeweler’s Kit] can also be purchased from most Mining
Suppliers as well as Jewelcrafting Suppliers.

Secondary Professions

Wondering what secondary
profession would go well with Jewelcrafting? As mentioned above,
Jewelcrafting is a production profession. What this means is that in
order for the player to be able to do anything with this profession
they must first obtain raw materials. These raw materials typically are
produced by one of the gathering professions (Skinning, Mining,
Herbalism) in game. The gathering profession that currently provides
the most benefit to Jewelcrafting is Mining. Basically everything
Miners dig up (raw ore, gems, etc.) is useable by the Jewelcrafter
making this a top notch secondary profession to couple with your
Jewelcrafting.

Jewelcrafting Perks

As you may know, every
profession has a serious of perks that benefit the player that chooses
to learn them. Those that choose the fine art of Jewelcrafting will
find themselves privy to Jewelcrafter only trinkets as well as special
gems with increased stats that can only be used by the Jewelcrafter
himself. Both of these perks are sure to make any non-Jewelcrafter
green
with envy.

Gem Cutting

One of the major money makers
in any Jewelcrafter’s arsenal is their ability to take raw
gems and cut them using various designs. These gems then, depending on
the gem cut used, take on various stats which benefit the player once
they have been socketed into a piece of gear. While most players will
find themselves wanting to jump right into the world of gem cutting
they will find that their first gem cuts will not be available until
around level 300 Jewelcrafting skill.

Once you finally reach the
level needed to cut your first gems you may be surprised to find that
most gem designs are not trained at the Jewelcrafting Trainer. Designs
are typically purchased from various vendors found throughout the
world. Checking out the inventory of every vendor you come across will
ensure that you do not miss any of these designs.

After you have obtained a gem
design you must seek out the correct color gem to use it on. To do this
players must either purchase the gem through the Auction House, luck
into it through mining, or use the Prospecting (Not sure how to use
Prospecting? Continue on to the next section for more details. ) skill.
Once you have a gem that matches the color the design calls for, simply
bring up your Jewelcrafting interface, click on the design and then
click “Create”. In a few seconds the process will
be complete and you will have a brand new cut gem that can be either
inserted into your gear or placed up for sale on the
Auction House.

Prospecting

Prospecting is the ability of a
Jewelcrafter to take raw ore gathered via Mining to extract gems. Five
of the same type of ore is required each time a player wishes to make
use of this skill. The ore destroyed in the Prospecting process and
will vanish from your bags afterwards. The type of ore used while
prospecting will determine the quality of gems produced. For example in
Cataclysm Obsidium Ore, the most common and easily obtained, has a very
low change to produce rare gems, while Pyrite has the highest chance
being the rarest Cataclysm ore. While players may choose to purchase
ore from the Auction House to use for Prospecting it is highly
recommended they have their own miner on hand
instead.

Making Gold with Jewelcrafting

Making cash with Jewelcrafting
is an easy endevour. Simply head to the Auction House or check out
Trade chat to see which gems are currently in demand. Cut several of
these gems yourself and place them up for sale. Wallah! Almost instant
cash. Be sure to make use of your Prospecting skill to keep up a steady
supply of gems to keep up with your business. Jewelcrafters also may be
able to sell their various jewelry items, however, this is a much more
unpredictable and risky business and should be approached
with caution.

Skilling Up Jewelcrafting

As with all production
professions, Jewelcrafting, requires the player to create items to
skill up. Players should try to create orange and yellow items in order
to ensure a skill up for every item created. Green colored items are
flaky when it comes to skill ups and grey items will give you no skill
points at all.

Before you can create any items
however, you must first gather the raw materials needed for it. Use the
Auction House or your own personal Mining skill to obtain the materials
for a particular pattern then open your Jewelcrafting tab, select the
pattern you have gathered the materials for and click
“Create”. A bar will appear at the bottom of your
screen as the item is created and once it completes the item will
appear in your bags. If you feel the need to stop an item from being
created simply jump or move and the process
will be cancelled.

Now that you know almost
everything there is to know about Jewelcrafting you are probably eager
to start leveling it up. This can be a difficult and rather tedious
process that could leave you wondering what you have gotten yourself
into. For the easiest and most pain free method of leveling your
Jewelcrafting continue reading onward for a no-frills
guide on leveling up Jewelcrafting.
