Here is the Blacksmithing leveling 1-300 guide. Best tips for leveling your profession.
This Blacksmithing leveling guide will show you the fastest way to level your Blacksmithing skill up from 1 to 300 in the cheapest way possible, especially on a new server where there is a whole economy to build and any gold coin will be saved.
The list of materials required assumes you gain a skill point for each craft. If this doesn’t happen, you will have to buy a few extra materials while you are leveling your Blacksmithing.
Leveling blacksmithing takes a significant amount of harvested materials which we’ve listed. Unless you have a lot of gold, we recommend your second profession be mining to help gather the resources needed.
This way, you can avoid a significant gold expense at the AH (Auction House).

Here is the list of all the materials you need to powerlevel your blacksmithing 1-300
First, visit any trainer in the main cities and learn Blacksmithing.
If you have mining, you will get the stones below by mining Copper or Tin.
Copper Ore is the lowest level ore
that you can farm. It comes from Copper Veins and is
mostly found in the starting areas and in
lower level zones. If you are below level 20, you should stay in the zone where you are questing currently;
there will be plenty of Copper Ore there.
Durotar is an excellent place to farm Copper Ore for Horde players with 5-6 Copper veins inside caves
For Alliance players, Darkshore is the place to be.
For more information, we suggest you read our Mining Leveling Guide 1-300.
Same as 1-90, this part will be about Copper ore and Tin ore.
Once 150: The Horde players will have to go to Saru Steelfury in Orgrimmar and for Bengus Deepforge in Ironforge for the Alliance to become "Expert".
If you have mining, you will get the stones below by mining Iron Ore. It's recommended to have Mining skill 100 before you start farming Iron Ore, because you will get more ores.
Feralas is the best place to mine Iron. Anywhere you go in Feralas, you will find Iron. Follow this route.
If you have mining, you will get the stones below by mining Mithril Ore.
It's recommended to have Mining skill 150 before you start farming.
The greatest place to mine Mithril is the Burning Steppes. You’ll maybe meet some lvl 60 doing the same profession and trying to level up their mining skills and you might have to fight or flee. Stay close to mountains and it’s better to avoid the caves because there is plenty of Mithril at the corners of the map. Avoid the center (red arc) if you want to loot quickly without having PVP troubles.
Alternatively, if the Burning Steppes are too scary because your level is not high enough or if there are a lot of PvP fights, you can go to the Badlands.
Once 225: The Horde and Alliance players will have to go to Brikk Keencraft in Loot Bay to pass as "Artisan".
[Plans: Mithril Scale Bracers] is sold by Gharash at Swamp of Sorrows (Horde) and by Harggan at The Hinterlands (Alliance). There is approximately a 30-60 minutes respawn time, this means you have to wait if someone bought it before you.
If you have mining, you will get the stones below by mining Thorium Ore.
It's recommended to have Mining skill 200 before you start farming. There are two types of Thorium Veins you will encounter on these routes, small and rich.
Winterspring is the best place for mining Thorium. Go to this route, you will find Thorium everywhere.
It's good to know that most of the rare and epic forge plans can’t get looted in raid but have to be bought from NPCs.
