Alchemy is the best combined with Herbalism. You can save a lot of gold if you level these two professions together because you can farm all the needed herbs.
I recommend using Zygor's 1-60 Leveling Guide if you are still leveling your character or you just started a new alt. The guide is in a small window on your main screen in-game. All the detail that you need to complete the quests are 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. And if you are low on gold, I recommend trying this Gold Making Guide, it can help you to make a lot of gold.
Learning Legion Alchemy
First, visit your Alchemy trainer Deucus Valdera at Dalaran. Just walk up to a guard in the city, you can ask them where the Alchemy trainer is located.
The recipes for the potions and the Crystal Vials are sold by Patricia Egan. She is in the same room where the trainer is.
You will need 9 [Yseralline Seed] to make the potions for the quest.
After you completed the quest, you will learn [Legion Alchemist]
4 - 50
Goblin characters have +15 Alchemy skill because of their passive [Better Living Through Chemistry]. An extra 15 Alchemy skill means recipes stay orange for 15 more points. You can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for 15 more points.
- 4 - 9
5 x [Rank 1 - Ancient Mana Potion] - 20 Yseralline Seed
Keep these, you will use them for the next recipe.
- 9 - 15
6 x [Rank 2 - Ancient Healing Potion] - 24 Yseralline Seed
Don't forget to buy the rank 2 healing potion recipe from Patricia Egan! You can discover the rank 3 potion recipe from making these.
Keep these, you will use them later.
- 15 - 20
5 x [Rank 1 - Ancient Rejuvenation Potion] - 5 x Ancient Healing Potion, 5 x Ancient Mana Potion
- 20 - 50
35 x [Rank 2 - Ancient Healing Potion] - 140 Yseralline Seed
This recipe will be yellow for the last 10 points, so you might have to make more.
If you discovered the rank 3 recipe, you can make this one up to 70.
50 - 70
Alchemy recipes are unlocked by doing quests given by Deucus Valdera at Dalaran.
You will need level 45 to unlock the recipes used below. The quests are pretty straight forward, so I will not write down the details of every quests. You will unlock the flask recipes sold by Patricia Egan after you finish Testing the Calibration quest. (around 26th quest in the quest chain)
You should finish every Alchemy quest given by your profession trainer, that's the only way to get the first rank of every recipe.
- 50 - 70
While crafting the rank 2 potions, you can discover the rank 3 version of that potion. So if you are lucky enough, you can make this one up to 90 if you discover a rank 3 recipe.
Make 25 from any of these:
You will need 10 from each for the Testing the Calibration quest.
- 25 x [Rank 2 - Leytorrent Potion] - 25 x Starlight Rose, 50 x Aethril, 50 x Dreamleaf
- 25 x [Rank 2 - Potion of Deadly Grace] - 25 x Starlight Rose, 50 x Fjarnskaggl, 50 x Dreamleaf
- 25 x [Rank 2 - Potion of the Old War] - 25 x Starlight Rose, 50 x Foxflower, 50 x Fjarnskaggl
- 25 x [Rank 2 - Unbending Potion] - 25 x Starlight Rose, 50 x Aethril, 50 x Foxflower
These will be yellow for the last few points, so you might need to make more.Rank 2 recipe locations:
- [Rank 2 - Recipe: Leytorrent Potion] - Dropped by Wrath of Azshara in Eye of Azshara dungeon.
- [Rank 2 - Recipe: Potion of Deadly Grace] - Droppey by Advisor Melandrus in Court of Stars dungeon.
- [Rank 2 - Recipe: Potion of the Old War] - Dropped by Advisor Vandros in Arcway dungeon.
- [Rank 2 - Recipe: Unbending Potion] - Dropped by Dargrul in Neltharion's Lair dungeon.
If you have a bunch of [Blood of Sargeras], then you can also make [Potion of Prolonged Power]. The rank 1 recipe is a world drop, but the drop chance is very high. You will get one while doing World Quests and killing stuff.
If you are Revered with the Nightfallen, then you can get the rank 2 from First Arcanist Thalyssra at Suramar, and then you can make this one up to 90.
70 - 100
While crafting the rank 2 flasks, you can discover the rank 3 version of that flask. The rank 3 flask is orange all the way up to 100, so if you are lucky enough, you will have to craft a lot fewer flask. Discovering a rank 3 flask recipe is entirely based on luck, you might get it after 10, you might need to craft hundreds.
It's pretty easy to miss when you discover a rank 3 recipe because it just simply appears in your inventory as a recipe. Try to que up only 5 Flask at a time and keep checking your bag/chat for the recipe.
Choose only one:
- 60 x [Rank 2 - Flask of Ten Thousand Scars] - 420 Starlight Rose, 600 Aethril, 600 Dreamleaf
- 60 x [Rank 2 - Flask of the Countless Armies] - 420 Starlight Rose, 600 Aethril, 600 Foxflower
- 60 x [Rank 2 - Flask of the Whispered Pact] - 420 Starlight Rose, 600 Fjarnskaggl, 600 Dreamleaf
- 60 x [Rank 2 - Flask of the Seventh Demon] - 420 Starlight Rose, 600 Fjarnskaggl, 600 Foxflower
These rank 2 flask recipes will be green for the last 10 points, so you might have to make more or fewer. It will greatly depend on your luck.
