WoW Alchemy Guide 1-600


Alchemy This WoW Alchemy Guide details the most efficient method of leveling Alchemy from levels 1 to 600 in the World of Warcraft. Alchemy is a primary profession that allows your character to create elixirs, oils and potions. The Herbalism profession is usually selected as a complementary skill while leveling Alchemy, as it can provide many of the raw materials required for Alchemy. Take a look at our WoW Herbalism Guide 1-600 for details on leveling Herbalism.

Updated for WoW patch 5.2

This guide focuses on making leveling Alchemy as easy and as cheap as possbile by using recipes that can be learned from Alchemy trainers and recipes that use the fewest and most easily obtained materials.

If a specific trainer or supplier isn’t mentioned for a recipe this means that the recipe should be commonly available from all Alchemy trainers for the item’s level.

Alchemy Guide Shortcuts


Alchemy Research

Some flasks made available in the Burning Crusade expansion (requiring level 375 to craft) are only available through discovery, that is, there is a small random chance that when crafting another potion, elixir, flask or transmute from the Burning Crusade expansion, you will discover a new flask recipe.

After reaching level 400 it is possible for players to learn and perform Northrend Alchemy Research to discover new Alchemy recipes. Performing Northrend Alchemy Research will randomly create 2-3 Elixirs or 2-4 Flasks and discover a new Alchemy recipe (you can only learn new recipes in line with your skill – you will need to increase you Alchemy skill appropriately to learn all of the recipes available through this method). Alchemy Research has a cooldown of 3 days, that is, it can only be performed once every 3 days.

Specialization

After reaching level 475 in Alchemy it is possible to choose a specialization. The specializations give your character a chance of creating an extra 1 to 4 items when crafting in the selected specialization.

For potions complete the Potion Master quest available from Yelmak in The Drag, Orgrimmar or Lilyssia Nightbreeze in The Mage Quarter, Stormwind.

For elixirs and flasks complete the Elixir Master quest available from Yelmak in The Drag, Orgrimmar or Lilyssia Nightbreeze in The Mage Quarter, Stormwind.

For transmutes complete the Transmutation Master quest available from Yelmak in The Drag, Orgrimmar or Lilyssia Nightbreeze in The Mage Quarter, Stormwind.

You can change your specialization by deleting your current specialization and then completing the quest for the new specialization.

The Alchemy Speialization have now been chanced. The old quest no longer work so you have to go to your cap city alchemy trainer.

Alliance: Lilyssia Nightbreeze http://www.wowhead.com/npc=5499

Horde: Yelmak. http://www.wowhead.com/npc=3347

To unlearn you old specialization simply click the small unlearn button next to it. Make sure you don’t unlearn alchemy by mistake.

Sadly the new quests are alot more expnesive to do :(

I had to drop my old spec, I picked up Zen Master, but there were no recipes at all given to me. I am currently a 535, and dont have 1 single pandarian recipe. All of my other recipes are now greyed out. I tried picking up an expensive specialization quest which still hasnt given me any recipes. Thoughts? I went to the trainer in the drag (org)

You need to make the Alchemist’s Rejuvenation recipe. Each time you make this, there is a chance you will learn a new Pandaren recipe.

Master Healing Potion also does this (the other MoP trained recipe).
