Tailoring

Tailoring isn’t an easy tradeskill to get to 300 but is extremely useful when you get there hence why I recommend it second.  Along the way you will come to some popular items that you can sell for a nice profit in the bazaar – mainly bags.

Get a tailoring kit (the largest one available) – eventually you’ll need other tools but not in the beginning.  I also recommend one of your first purchases be the tailoring kit so you can work on it while leveling up.  I also included some items that are in demand on most servers and those have a “Popular Item” note before the recipe.  While it is not recommended to skillup with these you can make the items and sell them in the bazaar – better profit if you farm the materials yourself.

Unfortunately tailoring requires a lot of components that need to be farmed.

Note:  when you are finished you’ll never want to see another gorget in your life.

  • Silk swatches and silk threads – 15 (no fail)
    • You are going to be beating up a lot of spiderlings and spiders and you will get a lot of spider silks and spiderling silks.  Two spider silks in the kit makes one silk swatch and two spiderling silks make one silk thread.
    • These combines also do not fail.
    • Save everything
  • Alternate:  Patchwork & tattered armor – 26
    • 1 pattern + 1 ruined skin (cat, bear, wolf)

    • You can either save these for smithing or sell them in the bazaar
  • Raw silk armor – 36
    • 1 pattern + 1 or more silk swatches (for skilling up, use the gorget pattern, it makes collars and only uses one silk)

    • This only requires two studs – others require more

    • Ribbons are a great path up to 116 and 122 (silver ribbons) but require rare farmed or foraged items.
    • If you have the money, you can use gold ribbons (31PP each) and they trivial at 162 & 167

    • There are other reinforced items, this uses the least materials.
