Enchanters need Silver Rod, Golden Rod, Truesilver Rod and Arcanite Rod that are crafted by blacksmiths and cannot be looted from mobs, chests or fishing.
How can an enchanter level their profession in Self-found mode? Wait until reaching level 60, level blacksmithing first and make the rods or just choose another profession?

In the unofficial self-found hardcore challenge, this is pretty much exactly how you would have leveled enchanting, so that’s how we left it for our mode. We aren’t strictly opposed to providing an in-game solution to get one of these rods solo (a vendor or quest perhaps) but it’s also not something that we want to change lightly, as there are likely many veteran hardcore players that may expect this part of self-found to persist.

One of the fun things about hardcore is that you can sort of fine-tune your own difficulty level if you’d like. This might be one of those things that if you do it, others would know you worked for it, and that might be appealing to some folks who really want a challenge and to show off that accomplishment.

Like every aspect of Classic, we are always be interested to hear feedback from the community on this topic. How do veteran players feel about this? How would newer hardcore players feel about this?
