World of Warcraft Enchanting,Enchantment Shaman GuideEnchanters use their magical formulae to grant permanent augmentation to weapons, armor and other equipment. Enchanting requires the use of special ingredients that can only be gathered by disenchanting magical items. Using these ingredients enchanters can make items more powerful.
Enchanting is a higher-level Profession, thus requiring more work than most Professions. The enchanter does not generate items directly from the skill, but instead makes existing items better.
To attain higher levels of enchanting, enchanters often must repeatedly cast enchantments on their friends equipment, sell enchantments to other players, or offer free enchantments.
Another challenge for enchanters is gathering magic items to disenchant in order to gather the required enchanting reagents. Enchanting for a guild is typically the easiest since guild members send you items to disenchant. Another option is spending money to buy materials, buying trade skill items to disenchant, or using a high level character to try to find magic items to disenchant.
Additionally, enchanters must also work with other Profession masters to create a few other reagents required for enchanting.
There are five levels of enchanting: Apprentice, Journeyman, Expert, Artisan, and Master. You will need to work your way up the ladder to enable more powerful enchantments.
Select the proper enchantment in the enchanting window, and press the enchant icon on your action bar (or the corresponding hotkey). Then, click on the item you wish to enchant. This can be performed upon items equipped by your character or in your inventory.
A method of enchanting items for other players is to use the non-trade slot in the trade screen window. Instruct the other player to place the item they wish to have enchanted in the trade screen window. Next, the enchanter should perform the enchantment on the item in the trade screen. Place your cursor over the item, and it will indicate that the item has been enchanted and that it will not be traded. You both then press the trade button, the player will receive the item back, and the enchantment will be complete. You can only enchant one item at a time in the trade screen window. Players should not give you their items to have enchanted. It should only be done via the trade screen window, without actually trading the items.
Some required ingredients can be purchased from the enchanting supplier. They sell things such as copper rods, simple wood, star wood, and may also have some rare limited supply items.
