Alchemy Icon

Engineering Icon

There are 3 possible ways to level up your Profession in Ascension WoW. Firstly, through the use of a Book of Artisans (which can be purchased from our Store or via the AH). Secondly, you can level up your Profession by visiting a Profession Trainer. These Trainers can be found in any main city by speaking to a Guard or by clicking on the Profession name above. And lastly, you can instantly reach max level via the use of a Trademan's Scroll. The scroll will be consumed upon use and is only usable once all realm first profession achievements have been earned. You can obtain a scroll by purchasing it from the store with DP (currently it costs 25DP) or via the Auction House with Gold.

Click on the one you would like to unlearn, which will in turn make it show up in the blank space below, and then click on the small red button that shows next to it. You will then notice a pop up window asking if you would like to unlearn the profession. If you would like to proceed with unlearning it, click "Unlearn". If not, click "cancel".
