WoW Alchemy Guide

Alchemy is one of the oldest professions involving a high use of herbs to make potions and elixirs. This WoW Alchemy guide will show you how to get to level 450 and pick up some tips on the way.

Alchemy is a mixture of brain and brawn and can help you in both strength and health, you start off collecting roots and similar but the materials you use can get really costly as time goes on.

WoW Alchemy Guide Tip

  • Make Herbalism your secondary profession and save a LOT of gold!

If you work your way up to level 450 in Herbalism you will have a supply of all the best materials and won’t have to queue up at the auction house and pay top dollar that other herbalists are demanding for their creations.

You can farm most of the materials you need but depending on how quick you want to level you can cut corners and buy one every now and again but it will definitely help your bank balance to become a Herbalist.

Alchemists can also transmute items, turning one object into another, although the cool down for this skill is a whole day the outcome is well worth it.

You can end up with precious metals and if you don’t need them you can sell them.

WoW Alchemy Guide Tip

  • You can use the new items created for crafting or even charge others for the service.

If you are running out of space in your inventory you can use an injector. Normally you carry 5 items in a stack but with this you can carry up to 20. This is great when you have to go into battle with lot’s of the same potion.
