Where to Get the Pattern for Brilliant Spellthread

The first step to make brilliant spellthread is to get the pattern. The pattern for brilliant spellthread is sold by [Veteran Crusader Aliocha Segard](^4^), the quartermaster of the [Argent Crusade](^5^), in [Icecrown](^6^). You need to be exalted with the Argent Crusade to buy the pattern, which costs 5 gold. The pattern is bind on pickup, so you cannot trade it or buy it from the auction house.

To reach exalted with the Argent Crusade, you need to complete quests and daily quests in Icecrown and Zul’Drak, as well as run the heroic dungeons Trial of the Champion and The Culling of Stratholme. You can also wear the [Tabard of the Argent Crusade](^7^) while running any level 80 dungeon to gain reputation. You can check your reputation status by opening your character panel and clicking on the reputation tab.

How to Farm Reputation with the Argent Crusade

One of the fastest ways to farm reputation with the Argent Crusade is to do the daily quests at the [Argent Vanguard] in Icecrown. There are four daily quests available there, each rewarding 250 reputation. They are:

  • [Slaves to Saronite]: Free 10 saronite miners from Ymirheim.
  • [The Fate of the Fallen]: Recover 10 [Lost Valiants’ Effects] from Scourge corpses.
  • [The Skybreaker]: Report to [High Captain Justin Bartlett] aboard the Skybreaker.
  • [The Shadow Vault]: Report to [Thassarian] at the Shadow Vault.

You can also do the daily quests at the [Argent Tournament Grounds] in Icecrown, which reward 250 reputation each as well. There are five daily quests available there, depending on your race and faction. They are:

  • [A Blade Fit For A Champion]: Retrieve a [Warts-B-Gone Lip Balm] from [Maiden of Ashwood Lake] and use it to polish a [Worn Sword].
  • [A Worthy Weapon]: Retrieve a [Whispering Crystal] from [Lake of Frozen Tears] and use it to infuse a [Tempered Sword].
  • [The Edge Of Winter]: Retrieve a [Everfrost Razor] from [Lord Everblaze] and use it to cut off a piece of an ancient sword.
  • [A Valiant’s Field Training]: Kill 10 Scourge units or players in Icecrown.
  • [At The Enemy’s Gates]: Use an [Argent Warhorse](30) or an [Argent Charger](31) to kill 15 Boneguard Scouts, 10 Boneguard Lieutenants, and 3 Boneguard Commanders at Corp’rethar.

What Materials You Need to Make Brilliant Spellthread

To make brilliant spellthread, you need the following materials:

  • 1 [Eternium Thread]: This is a common tailoring material that can be bought from any tailoring or trade goods vendor for 3 silver.
  • 10 [Bolt of Imbued Frostweave]: This is a tailor-crafted material that requires 3 [Bolt of Frostweave] and 2 [Infinite Dust] each. Bolt of Frostweave can be made from 5 [Frostweave Cloth] each, which can be looted from level 70-80 humanoid mobs. Infinite Dust can be obtained by disenchanting level 70-80 green items or by buying them from the auction house.
  • 4 [Iceweb Spider Silk]: This is a rare tailoring material that can be looted from level 80 spiders in Icecrown, Storm Peaks, and Sholazar Basin. It can also be bought from the auction house.

In total, you need 1 Eternium Thread, 30 Bolt of Frostweave, 20 Infinite Dust, and 4 Iceweb Spider Silk to make one brilliant spellthread. The cost of these materials may vary depending on the server economy and supply and demand. You can check the current prices of these materials on the auction house or on online databases such as [Wowhead] or [The Undermine Journal].

How to Save Money on Materials for Brilliant Spellthread

If you want to save money on materials for brilliant spellthread, here are some tips you can follow:

  • Farm Frostweave Cloth yourself: If you have a high-level character with decent gear, you can farm Frostweave Cloth from humanoid mobs in Northrend. Some of the best places to farm Frostweave Cloth are the Scourgeholme in Icecrown, the Pit of Saron in Icecrown Citadel, and the Violet Hold in Dalaran. You can also use a [Tailoring Scissors] to increase the amount of cloth you get from each mob.
  • Buy Infinite Dust in bulk: Infinite Dust is one of the most widely used enchanting materials in Wrath of the Lich King, so it is usually in high demand and low supply. However, you can sometimes find cheap Infinite Dust on the auction house if you buy it in large quantities. You can also look for bargain deals on trade chat or on online forums.
  • Trade Iceweb Spider Silk for other materials: Iceweb Spider Silk is a rare and expensive tailoring material that is only used for a few recipes. However, some tailors may have excess Iceweb Spider Silk that they don’t need or want to sell. You can try to trade your Iceweb Spider Silk for other materials that you need, such as Bolt of Imbued Frostweave or Eternium Thread. You can also offer gold or other items as part of the trade.

How to Craft Brilliant Spellthread

Once you have the pattern and the materials for brilliant spellthread, you can craft it using your tailoring skill. You need a minimum of 450 tailoring skill to craft brilliant spellthread, which is the maximum level for Wrath of the Lich King. You can increase your tailoring skill by crafting other items, such as cloth armor, bags, or bandages. You can also learn new patterns from tailoring trainers, vendors, or drops.

To craft brilliant spellthread, you need to use a [Tailoring Needle] and a [Tailoring Thread]. You can buy these items from any tailoring or trade goods vendor for a few silver. You also need to be near a [Tailoring Loom], which can be found in most major cities or towns. To craft brilliant spellthread, simply open your profession window, select the Tailoring tab, and click on the brilliant spellthread icon. You will then see a crafting window that shows the required materials and the number of brilliant spellthreads you can make. Click on the Create button to start crafting.

How to Use Brilliant Spellthread

After you have crafted brilliant spellthread, you can use it to enchant your own pants or sell it to other players. To use brilliant spellthread, you need to have a pair of pants that are level 600 or lower and that have an open augment slot. You also need to be level 27 or higher to benefit from the enchantment. To use brilliant spellthread, simply right-click on the brilliant spellthread in your inventory and then click on the pants you want to enchant. You will see a confirmation window that shows the current and new stats of the pants. Click on Yes to apply the enchantment.

Once you have enchanted your pants with brilliant spellthread, you will see a blue text on the item tooltip that says “Permanently embroiders spellthread into pants, increasing spell power by 8 and versatility by 7”. You will also see an icon of a needle and thread on the bottom right corner of the item icon. This means that the item is augmented and cannot be augmented again. You can only have one augment per item, so if you want to change the augment, you will have to remove the current one first. To remove an augment, you need to use a [Vanishing Powder], which can be bought from any enchanting or trade goods vendor for 10 gold.

FAQs About Brilliant Spellthread and Other Spellthreads

What is the difference between brilliant spellthread and sapphire spellthread?

Brilliant spellthread and sapphire spellthread are both tailor-crafted leg enchants for casters.

Brilliant spellthread is the best option for casters who want to maximize their damage output and survivability, while sapphire spellthread is a cheaper and easier alternative for casters who are on a budget or don’t care about min-maxing.

What is the difference between runic spellthread and mystic spellthread?

Runic spellthread and mystic spellthread are also tailor-crafted leg enchants for casters. The main difference between them is that runic spellthread gives more spell power and spirit than mystic spellthread, but also requires more materials and a higher reputation with the Kirin Tor. Runic spellthread is the best option for casters who want to increase their mana regeneration and healing output, while mystic spellthread is a cheaper and easier alternative for casters who don’t need as much spirit.

What is the difference between master’s spellthread and greater spellthread?

Master’s spellthread and greater spellthread are both leg enchants for casters that can be obtained from work orders or draenor tailoring. The main difference between them is that master’s spellthread gives 9 spell power and 8 of a random secondary stat, while greater spellthread gives 10 spell power and 10 of a random secondary stat. Greater spellthread is the best option for casters who want to have the highest possible stats on their legs, while master’s spellthread is a slightly inferior but still viable option for casters who don’t mind some randomness.

Can I use brilliant spellthread on heirloom pants?

Yes, you can use brilliant spellthread on heirloom pants, as long as they are level 600 or lower and have an open augment slot. However, you should be aware that brilliant spellthread will not scale with your level, unlike the stats on the heirloom pants themselves. This means that brilliant spellthread will become less effective as you level up, compared to other leg enchants that scale with your level. Therefore, you might want to consider using a different leg enchant on your heirloom pants, such as [Arcanum of the Savage Gladiator] or [Arcanum of Hyjal], which can be bought from vendors or obtained from reputation.

Can I use brilliant spellthread on BoE pants?

Yes, you can use brilliant spellthread on BoE (bind on equip) pants, as long as they are level 600 or lower and have an open augment slot. However, you should be aware that once you use brilliant spellthread on BoE pants, they will become soulbound to you, meaning that you cannot trade them or sell them to other players. Therefore, you should only use brilliant spellthread on BoE pants that you intend to keep for yourself or give to your alts.

Can I use brilliant spellthread on BoP pants?

Yes, you can use brilliant spellthread on BoP (bind on pickup) pants, as long as they are level 600 or lower and have an open augment slot. However, you should be aware that once you use brilliant spellthread on BoP pants, they will become augmented, meaning that you cannot disenchant them or send them to your alts. Therefore, you should only use brilliant spellthread on BoP pants that you are sure you want to keep for yourself.

Can I use brilliant spellthread on legendary pants?

No, you cannot use brilliant spellthread on legendary pants, such as [Val’anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings] or [Shadowmourne]. Legendary pants do not have an augment slot, so they cannot be enchanted with any leg enchant. Legendary pants already have very powerful stats and effects, so they do not need any additional enhancement.

Can I use brilliant spellthread on transmogrified pants?

Yes, you can use brilliant spellthread on transmogrified pants, as long as they are level 600 or lower and have an open augment slot. Transmogrification is a cosmetic feature that allows you to change the appearance of your gear, without affecting its stats or effects. Therefore, using brilliant spellthread on transmogrified pants will not change their appearance, but will still give you the benefits of the enchantment.

Can I use brilliant spellthread on pants from other expansions?

Yes, you can use brilliant spellthread on pants from other expansions, such as [The Burning Crusade], [Cataclysm], [Mists of Pandaria], [Warlords of Draenor], or [Legion], as long as they are level 600 or lower and have an open augment slot. However, you should be aware that brilliant spellthread may not be the best option for pants from other expansions, as there may be better leg enchants available for those pants. For example, if you have pants from [Legion], you might want to use [Mark of the Ancient Priestess] or [Mark of the Hidden Satyr], which are leg enchants from [Legion] that give more spell power and other effects.

Can I use brilliant spellthread on pants from other professions?

Yes, you can use brilliant spellthread on pants from other professions, such as [Blacksmithing], [Leatherworking], [Engineering], or [Jewelcrafting], as long as they are level 600 or lower and have an open augment slot. However, you should be aware that brilliant spellthread may not be the best option for pants from other professions, as there may be better leg enchants available for those pants.
