How to get Expulsom in Battle for Azeroth

Expulsom is a new crafting reagent introduced with the Battle for Azeroth expansion. I put together this Expulsom farming guide to show you an overview on how to get Expulsom.

Expulsom


 

Table of contents:

1. Scrapping

Expulsom is obtained primarily from scrapping armors and weapons using the Scrap-o-Matic 1000 (Alliance), or the Shred-Master Mk1 (Horde). These tools work like disenchanting, you can break down any gear obtained that is from the Battle for Azeroth expansion, including dungeon/raid drops, quest rewards, world drops and crafted gear. The Scrapper isn't restricted to specific trade skills. Anyone, even people without a crafting skill can use it.

1.2. Where can you find the scrapper

  • Alliance: The Scrap-o-Matic 1000 can be found in the new Alliance capital Boralus at the Tradewinds Market.
  • Horde: The Shred-Master Mk1 can be found in the new Horde capital Dazar'alor at the Terrace of Crafters.

1.3. How to use the Scrapper

Simply click on the Scrapper, and then a new window will pop up on your screen. You can put 9 items there by right clicking them in your inventory. Then hit the Scrap button and it will scrap your items one by one.

1.4. Expulsom drop rates from scrapping

The quality of the item scrapped doesn't seem to have an impact in how much [Expulsom] you get. Green, Blue and Epic BfA gear has SAME CHANCE for [Expulsom] proc from Scrapping gear. Drop rate seems to be between 16 and 17%.

On average you will get one [Expulsom] for every 6 gear pieces scrapped.

Trinkets are the exception, because you will always get one [Expulsom] from scrapping a trinket. (this does not include crafted trinkets, like the Alchemy trinkets)

1.5. Crafting items to scrap

Since the quality of the items doesn't matter. Crafting the cheapest Blacksmithing, Tailoring, and Leatherworking items from the Battle for Azeroth expansion is the best way to get a lot of [Expulsom].

List of items to craft:

2. Other sources of Expulsom

2.1. World Quests

Professions-related World Quests have a chance to reward Expulsom, and you should also always complete any World Quest that rewards a trinket, since as I mentioned before, trinkets always scrap into Expulsom. (you can only unlock World Quests after you reach 120)

If you install the World Quest List addon, you can quickly check if there is any Expulsom or Trinket world quests up. This addon saves you a lot of time, you don't have to check every single zone one by one.

2.2. Alchemy Transmute

Alchemist can transmute herbs into 5 Expulsom once a day, but you need to level your Zandalari / Kul Tiran Alchemy to 110 before you can learn this transmute. (Note: Transmute master is useless for BfA transmutes)

[Transmute: Expulsom] - 10 x Akunda's Bite, 10 x Winter's Kiss, 3 x Anchor Weed

The Battle for Azeroth transmutes are on a separate cooldown, so you won't "waste" your transmute cooldown. You can still make one transmute from older expansions.

WoW Leveling Guide 1-110 Do you want to reach level 120 fast?

I recommend Zygor's Leveling Guide. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quest is included. You’ll never have to switch back to a website, or even the in-game main map to see where you have to go or what’s next. The guide is available for both Horde and Alliance.

I use Zygor's guide for leveling and I highly recommend it.
