This guide's main focus is leveling Alchemy, but you can visit my Shadowlands Alchemy Guide if you want to read more about the new changes, alchemy bonuses, and recipes.
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. Check out my Herbalism leveling guide if you want to level Herbalism. If you don't have Herbalism, make sure you have enough gold to buy herbs because you will need a lot of them.
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.
Shadowlands Alchemy Trainer Location
You can learn Shadowlands Alchemy from Elixirist Au'pyr in Oribos at the Hall of Shapes. (Coordinates: 39.6, 40.2)
Oribos is the new Shadowlands city hub for both factions. You will arrive there after you finish the Shadowlands intro quests, so you can learn the new profession recipes before you head out questing.
Approximate Materials Required
At some parts, there are multiple potions that you can craft to level Alchemy, therefore I can't list the exact number of herbs needed to reach 175.
Below you will find a list that is usually the cheapest way to level, but the price of herbs varies from realm to realm.
- 133 x Rune Etched Vial
- 328 x Death Blossom
- 169 x Rising Glory
- 104 x Marrowroot
- 98 x Vigil's Torch
- 70 x Widowbloom
Check out my farming guides if you want to farm any of these herbs:
- Death Blossom farming
- Rising Glory farming
- Marrowroot farming
- Vigil's Torch farming
- Widowbloom farming
- Nightshade farming
Leveling Shadowlands Alchemy
An extra Alchemy skill means recipes stay orange for more points. You can save a lot of gold by doing lower level recipes for more points.
1 - 20
Make 8 from each of these:
- 8 x Spiritual Healing Potion - 16 Death Blossom
- 8 x Spiritual Mana Potion - 16 Death Blossom
- 8 x Spiritual Rejuvenation Potion - 8 Spiritual Healing Potion, 8 Spiritual Mana Potion
These recipes are yellow for the last few points, so you might not reach 20.
20 - 30
12 x Ground Death Blossom - 26 Death Blossom
You can also make Ground Rising Glory if Rising Glory is cheaper than Death Blossom.
30 - 45
15 x Potion of the Hidden Spirit - 30 Death Blossom, 45 Rising Glory
45 - 55
10 x Ground Marrowroot - 20 Marrowroot
55 - 60
5 x Potion of Soul Purity - 10 Death Blossom, 15 Vigil's Torch
60 - 80
28 x Potion of Specter Swiftness - 56 Death Blossom, 84 Marrowroot
Yellow for the last 10 points.
80 - 97
22 x Ground Vigil's Torch - 44 Vigil's Torch
The recipes will be yellow for the last 7 points.
97 - 100
3 x Potion of the Psychopomp's Speed - 9 Rising Glory, 9 Vigil's Torch
100 - 110
10 x Potion of Hardened Shadows - 30 Vigil's Torch, 30 Rising Glory
You can also make Potion of Spiritual Clarity if Vigil's Torch is cheaper (or if you have more of them), but I think Rising Glory will be cheaper at the start of Shadowlands since you can gather it in the first zone.
110 - 120
14 x Ground Widowbloom - 28 Widowbloom
The recipes will be yellow for the last 5 points.
120 - 125
The reason I recommend switching to Potion of Sacrificial Anima is that Ground Widowbloom becomes green at 122 while Potion of Sacrificial Anima stays yellow up to 137, so it has a lot higher chance to give you skill points even if it costs 3 times as much.
7 x Potion of Sacrificial Anima - 42 Widowbloom
125 - 157
38 x Crafter's Mark I - 190 Death Blossom, 38 Rune Etched Vial, 114 Distilled Death Extract
157 - 170
Make 17 from one of these:
- 17 x Potion of Spectral Agility - 85 Widowbloom
- 17 x Potion of Spectral Strength - 85 Rising Glory
- 17 x Potion of Spectral Stamina - 85 Vigil's Torch
- 17 x Potion of Spectral Intellect - 85 Marrowroot
These recipes will be yellow for the last few points, so you might have to make a few more.
170 - 175
I recommend simply finishing the last 5 points with World Quests. You can craft everything at this point, so there is no need to rush 175. The only thing that you can't craft is Recipe: Eternal Cauldron, but you will need a revered reputation to buy the recipe, so you will have plenty of time to do the 5 World Quests.
Alchemy World quests pop up every few days in one of the Shadowlands zones, just look for a little Alchemy icon on your world map. They all give you +1 Shadowlands Alchemy skill point. (requires level 60)
I hope you liked this Shadowlands Alchemy leveling guide, congratulations on reaching 175!
