Enchanting While Levelling?

Does anyone know a guide on tips to level enchanting while levelling up? Thanks

Or even better if you can just answer whether or not this is viable! :D

Oh gods, no. Enchanting has to be the most tedious and annoying profession to level up, at least when you still need different rods for higher levels, which can sometimes sell for hundreds of gold depending on the server.

But if you really, really, really  have to take it, pair it with tailoring so you can disenchant the stuff you make. And in later expansions you actually need the enchanting materials to level up the tailoring.

Don't leave it till level cap, keep it up with your character progression so you can disenchant loot and items you craft on the go.

If you are talking about "leveling on a fresh server" then...
1. as soon as possible get your enchanting up to 10/75 (you can do this by disenchanting greens [and you can buy those greens from random ppl for a selling price +1-3s])
2. start crafting lesser magic wands (10 red, 75 yellow) and selling em for about 10-12s
3. keep buying greens and repeat 2 (up to 75/75)
4. start crafting greater magic wands (70 - red, 110 - yellow), ppl gonna buy em for about 40-50 silver
5. around 130 skill you will have to buy silver rod (from a blacksmith) and this is a first problem
6. don't even think about crafting lesser/greater mystic wands because noone is going to buy em (ppl can get better wands from quests)
7. noone is going to spent money for low level enchants so around 130/150 you should leave it

So, in this very early game you are going to earn a lot of money. Unfortunetly, you are not going to have any profit from ~140 to 250 (enchanted thorium/leather avaible), BUT you still need to find a blacksmith...

In total (140150) you are going to craft about:
65 lesser magic wands (about 5 gold profit)
60-70 greater magic wands (about 25 gold profit)
And this is not enought to skip 140-250 hole (better get mount at lvl 40)

 

But if you are not talking about "leveling on a fresh server" then... Listen to Ilovecats

Acquire it as a level 1/75 skill and get an addon that shows you vendor prices for items. Disenchant every green item you come across that has a low vendor value and keep the mats. You can eventually get to 50+ skill for free just from this as a starting point once you begin investing more. Don't bother doing anything besides the above until after you have enough gold for your level 40 mount (Warlocks/Paladins excluded). Then go ham.

Enchanting is a fun profession. Pair it with a crafting one, ideally tailoring, as that doesn't require any gathering, and disenchant everything you come across. The first 50 points are obtainable just by disenchanting, from there it's a journey of pain, not having enough essences, and snorting leftover dust.

But beware, unless you sell every single skill-up, you're gonna end up piss poor.

Don't do it, basically.

Get it at level 1. Disenchant everything you get and stuff the items in your bank char. Don't go beyond 150 until after you have your level 40 mount.

you can feel free to use all the strange dust you have to level enchanting

you can actually get to 190 enchanting with nothing but strange dust and a runed copper and runed silver rod and some stuff to enchant

yes, yes, you'd be using alot of strange dust to do it, but its not always easy to sell it, and when you do it wouldn't be for that much I think, as the price of strange dust is closely related to the vendor price of minor wizard oil and the AH price of linen cloth

I've done enchanting while leveling twice and had money for mount at 40 and some 200g at reaching 60.

Things that were needed:

1) Server with high pop of leveling toons.

2) No hurry to reach 60.

3) Be tank or healer.

4) Be social.

The secret is to run dungeons and that's it. Only do dungeon quests and get all exp in dungeons. There are some holes like between SM cath and Ulda but mostly there is a dungeon for all levels 18+

Being a tank was easier than healer. Never tried as DPS. It's actually less bad than what people think. You spec properly (prot / holy, resto) and after some time you build yourself a name and a long friends list. You get added a lot too if you are not retarded. Oftentimes I had to form groups but I got LOTS of invites.

 

Little downtime(outside of dung), lots of fun, loooots of bop blues ($) and boe greens (mats), the occasional boe blue ($$$), little exp per hour, bis gear all the time.... It's a different game than questing, but a nice poison nonetheless.

/played was around 12 days I think.
