Enchanting in WoW TBC Classic is one of the most important professions, allowing for powerful stat bonuses to be applied to player's weapons.

It's important to note that the newly added Blood Elves have +10 to their base Enchanting skill thanks to their Arcane Affinity passive. This means that recipes stay orange for 10 more points, and crafting something with an orange difficulty will always result in a skill-up.

How to Enchant Items

Just like in Classic, Enchanters must enchant the items directly. If you are an Enchanter who wants to enchant an other player's item, the other player can hand you the item through the "Will Not Be Traded" tab in the trade window, and it can be done there.

New expansion means new profession items, and TBC comes equipped with three new rods for Enchanting. You must have these rods in your inventory for the Enchants to work.

Enchanting Materials

Runed Fel Iron Rod - an enchanted version of a Blacksmith's Fel Iron Rod, used to enchant items in the 290-350 range.

Runed Adamantite Rod - an enchanted version of a Blacksmith's Adamantite Rod, used to enchant items above 350.

Runed Eternium Rod - an enchanted version of a Blacksmith's Eternium Rod, used for some enchants at 375.

As an Enchanter, any piece of gear can be disenchanted. A crafting material is granted depending on the rarity of the disenchanted item. The crafting materials gained from disenchanting are essential for enchanting.

Green Items - Items with a green rarity will always drop 5 Arcane Dust, as well as a chance to get Lesser Planar Essence or Greater Planar Essence. Greens are obtained from most quest rewards, as well as BoE's or Bind on Equip items found from random mob drops.

Blue Items - Items with a blue rarity will drop Small Prismatic Shards, and sometimes Large Prismatic Shards. Blues are obtained from more challenging quests, or at the end of long quest chains. Blues can also be found from dungeon bosses, and even as a BoE from any random mob if you're lucky.

Purple Items - While its not often you will be disenchanting these, the player is given a Void Crystal for disenchanting a purple. You will only be disenchanting purples if an item you receive is better than the raid items from raiding in Classic. Purples are found in raids, at the end of some dungeons, and if you are incredibly lucky - as a BoE from mobs out in the world.

The only other place you would need to get materials for enchanting are farmed from elemental Primals, granting important items like Primal Fire or Primal Might. Nagrand has lots of elementals.
