WoW Cataclysm Archaeology Guide 1-525

This is a 1-525 Archaeology guide. Archaeology is the newest profession released with Cataclysm. It is technically a secondary skill that everyone can level up and train in addition to their two chosen professions (just like fishing, cooking, and first aid).

Leveling Archaeology is a bit different than other professions. Once you train it you will be able to see digsites on your main map. Once you arrive at a digsite you can then Survey and collect fragments and eventually Solve the artifact.

You need to be at least level 20 to train Archaeology.

Go to digsites and simply use your Survey ability, don't Solve anything.

Begin using Solve to complete artifacts. You will still need to collect fragments to do this although you won't level with your Survey ability anymore.

WoW Cataclysm First Aid Guide 1-525

First Aid is really easy to level up, just get some cloth and begin crafting. Here is a route that will take you to 525 very quickly. I have an estimated amount of mats listed but please don't take it exactly, it is just a general estimate. Also, since buying cloth will save you time I recommend it, if you can't afford it you should really look at this gold guide.

Please Note:
All the bandages in the guide below are trained by the First Aid Trainer.

Linen Bandage - 50 Linen Cloth

Heavy Linen Bandage - 120 Linen Cloth

Wool Bandage - 55 Wool Cloth

Patch 3.3.3 Profession Notes

Patch 3.3.3 debuted today with a few changes to the professions. I have pasted them below for your convenience.


Runed Orbs: Recipes which require this item have had their material requirements significantly reduced.

The Pet Bombling and Lil' Smoky non-combat pets are no longer Bind-on-Pickup.

The "Monsterbelly Appetite" daily fishing quest has changed so it now takes place outside the Violet Hold in Dalaran. The quest still requires a Severed Arm and has been renamed to "Disarmed!"

Most recipes that required 2 inks now only require 1.

Titansteel Bar: Creating this item no longer results in a cooldown. If this ability is on cooldown when the patch is applied, players must wait for the cooldown to expire naturally before it is permanently removed.

Glacial Bag: Creating this item now invokes a 7-day cooldown.
The cooldown and location requirements have been removed from creating Moonshroud, Spellweave and Ebonweave. If any of these abilities are on cooldown when the patch is applied, players must wait for the cooldowns to expire naturally before they are permanently removed.

WoW Cataclysm Herbalism Guide 1-525

This is a World of Warcraft Cataclysm Herbalism Guide. This guide will help you level your Herbalism to 525. If you're using this guide to get mats for Alchemy, stop, buy your supplies! You'll save a ton of time buying your mats instead of farming for them. If you can't afford to buy your supplies take a look at this gold guide.

For best results simply run in the general area of the lines on the maps.

For 1-70 you can either hit up Durotar as shown below on the map or Elwynn Forest. Either area will do and you will level to 70 very fast.


Elwynn Forest
If you don't feel like hitting up Durotar try here.

The Barrens
There's nothing to explain for this zone, you'll find lots of herbs and are still at a low enough level where leveling is very fast.

WoW Cataclysm Inscription Guide 1-525

This is a World of Warcraft Cataclysm Inscription Guide that will level you from 1-525 if you don't plan on buy the mats for this guide you really should as it's a waste of time to collect them all with Herbalism. If you don't have the gold right now check out this gold guide.
