Optional Reagents in Shadowlands

Optional reagents are new types of reagents that can change the item level and the secondary stats of the items you craft. You can probably guess from its name, but it isn't required to fill the Optional Reagent slot when you create something, you can craft an item with no optional reagents or you can fill as many Optional Reagents slots as you prefer.

Secondary Stat Changing

These Optional reagents basically let you choose which secondary stats you want on an item, instead of just getting two random stats. (you can't use two from the same stat)

All 4 of these below are crafted by Scribes.

Item Level Changing of Shadowlands Items

These reagents change the item level of a crafted armor or weapon. (You can actually downgrade an item's item level and its level requirement if you use a lower level optional reagent)

These 3 optional reagents below can only be used to craft items from Shadowlands. All 8 manufacturing professions can craft these.

Item Level Changing for Older Expansions

The five types of Relic of the Past below can be used on items from older expansions, and cannot be used to craft items from Shadowlands. Only Tailors, Blacksmiths, and Leatherworkers can craft these.

All 5 can be crafted with 24 different materials. (different materials from each expansion for each profession). So, for example, you can craft Relic of the Past I with Linen Cloth, Netherweave Cloth, Frostweave Cloth, Embersilk Cloth, etc. The 8 recipes all make the same item, the different versions were added so it won't matter where you level with your character, you can always make useful gear by using these.

WoW Leveling Guide 1-60 Do you want to reach level 60 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.
