Alchemy Leveling Guide 1 – 450 on the cheap

Well Lets see here. Apparently I have this character that I would like to level Alchemy on. Now, like everyone else, I don’t want to spend a ton of money doing it. My solution is to farm up all my own herbs.

Now while this may seem self explanatory, my problem is that I have no Herbalist. One would think that this will leave me with no alternative but to buy all my herbs in the auction house. I figure at current prices it would cost me about 1K gold to level strictly by buying from the auction house. Thats a little on the expensive side.

Well, I will pick some up there if the price is right, but there is another way. By knowing in advance what I am going to need I can take herbalisim on the character who will be the alchemist and farm everything up before hand. Of course that means I need a shopping list.

 

Leveling Alchemy 1 – 450 on the cheap

Notes:

  • Dont forget to train, it wastes materials. I know this from experience.
  • I am making the choices I am because of both skill up potential and resale value. If you are both lucky and patient you could scoop everything up off the AH when it is cheap and resell everything you craft for enough money to have it come out almost even. Even if you are not in it for the long term money anything’s  better than making stuff just to vendor it.
  • Alchemy Apprentice is 1-75
  • Alchemy journeyman is 75-150
  • Alchemy Expert is 150-225
  • Alchemy Artisan is 225-300
  • Specialisation in Transmutation, Elixirs, or Potions is available through a quest at 325 skill. Minimum level 68.
  • Alchemy Master is 300-375
  • Alchemy Grand Master is 375-450
  • If I think of anything else I’ll add it here.

 

Alchemy 1-60

  • 59 x Minor Healing Potion – 59 Peacebloom, 59 Sliverleaf, 59 Empty Vial

  • 360 – 365
    5 x Icy Mana Potion10 Talandra’s Rose, 5 Imbued Vial
  • 365 – 380
    17 x Spellpower Elixir17 Goldclover, 17 Tiger Lily, 17 Imbued Vial
  • 380 – 385
    5 x Potion of Nightmares5 Goldclover, 10 Talandra’s Rose, 5 Imbued Vial
  • 385 – 395
    12 x Elixir of Mighty Strength24 Tiger Lily, 12 Imbued Vial
  • 395 – 405
  • Upon reaching 400, you can  start doing Northrend Alchemy Research and can craft your Alchemy Trinket, so you might as well do it now and get the skill ups.
  • 12 x Elixir of Mighty Agility24 Goldcover, 24 Adder’s Tongue, 12 Imbued Vial
  • 405 – 410
    5 x Runic Healing Potion5 Goldcover, 10 Icethorn, 5 Imbued Vial
  • 410 – 425
  • 20 x Runic Mana Potion20 Goldcover, 40 Lichbloom, 15 Imbued Vial
  • 425 – 435
  • 10 x Transmute: Earthsiege Diamond 10 Dark Jade, 10 Huge Citrine, 10 Eternal Fire
  • 435-450
    I suppose you could continue leveling past 435 if you really want to. It seems to me that there is no point however. By the time you get here you can make every recipe in the game (provided you have it) with a single exception. The only recipe that requires 445 skill is Transmute: Eternal Might. Now, I could be mistaken but I looked and cannot find a single recipe or anything that uses Eternal Might as a material. I have no idea why it’s even there, future expansion perhaps? If I find something I’ll note it here.

 Profit!
