Volatile Farming Guide - Cataclysm

This guide will list the places where I found the most Volatile Air, Volatile Fire, Volatile Water and Volatile Earth. The guide does not include Volatile Life because you can only farm it if you have Herbalism. One thing I noticed while farming Volatiles is that sometimes you farm for 15 minutes and you don't get a single Volatile Air or Fire or any other Volatile, this is just bad luck, don't get discouraged.

List of farming guides

Alchemists can use [Transmute: Living Elements] to transmute Volatile Life into any other Volatile. Typically, when you use Transmute: Living Elements, you will receive 14-16 random Volatile elements (Volatile Air, Volatile Earth, Volatile Water, or Volatile Fire) in exchange for 15 Volatile Life.

If you use this transmute while in one of the new Cataclysm zones associated with the Elemental Planes, however, the element into which your Volatile Life will transform will be predetermined. For example, if you use Transmute: Living Elements while in Uldum, you will always receive Volatile Air for your efforts.

Additionally, alchemists with Transmutation specialization will have a chance to receive bonus Volatile elements when completing this transmute. The bonus will be random, though, regardless of which zone you are in.
