Dragonflight Alchemy Leveling Guide 1-100

This Dragonflight Alchemy leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Dragonflight Alchemy skill up from 1 to 100 as inexpensively as possible.

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.

This guide was updated to the new Dragonflight Expansion, you can find the Shadowlands Guide at the following link:

Dragonflight Alchemy Trainers

New Dragonflight Alchemy features

There are a lot of new stats added to professions in Dragonflight, so here is a quick explanation for some of these.

Recipe Difficulty

Recipe Difficulty shows you how much profession skill is required to make a recipe at the highest quality. You can see your current profession Skill below the Recipe Difficulty stat. Your Skill comes from your base profession skill, specializations, profession equipment, racials, and using high-quality reagents. So, your profession skill can go well above 100.

Item Quality

Every newly crafted piece of equipment has 5 different qualities. Alchemy Flasks and Potions have 3 different qualities

Basically, if you have higher skill, you can make higher ilvl gear and higher quality consumables that give more stat.

Inspiration, Multicraft, Resourcefulness

  • Inspiration: Each time you craft something, there is a chance you get Inspired and craft the recipe with some bonus profession skill, so you can basically craft an item with higher quality than you could normally. This stat is only helpful when you craft recipes with higher Recipe Difficulty than your current Skill.
  • Resourcefulness: You have a chance to use fewer reagents.
  • Multicraft: You have a chance to craft additional items. (doesn't work on crafted gear, only consumables, and reagents)

Dragon Isles Alchemy Knowledge

Dragon Isles Alchemy Knowledge points are the "talent points" that you can put into your profession specialization to learn new skills, stats, and bonuses.

Leveling Dragonflight Alchemy

Goblin characters have +15 Alchemy skill because of their passive Better Living Through Chemistry, and Kul Tiran characters have +5 from the trait Jack of All Trades.

Any 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.

Alchemist's Lab Bench Location

Most Dragonflight Alchemy recipes require a nearby crafting station.

You can find the Alchemist's Lab Bench near the Alchemy trainer in Valdrakken. There are other stations near the other Alchemy trainers, but I recommend leveling near this one because there is an Auction House nearby, so it's just easier to buy reagents.

Approximate Materials Required

This is the list of materials needed to get to 30. There are just too many variables for the 30-100 part.

1 - 7

2x Refreshing Healing Potion - 4x Rousing Frost, 16x Hochenblume

7 - 11

2x Aerated Mana Potion - 2x Rousing Frost, 16x Hochenblume

11 - 15

Use Reclaim Concoctions on the 10x Refreshing Healing Potions and 10x Aerated Mana Potions you just made.

15 - 16

1x Transmute: Awakened Air - 1 Awakened Frost, 1 Awakened Fire

This is to get your first craft bonus, while Transmute: Awakened Air still gives skill points. (you can skip it)

16 - 25

12x Omnium Draconis - 12x Writhebark, 12x Saxifrage, 60x Hochenblume, 12x Bubble Poppy

You can also use Reclaim Concoctions on Potions or Flasks until you reach 20.

It doesn't really matter which one you make. Both of them will be used to level Alchemy to 100, so you will have to make a bunch of them anyway.

Alchemy Specializations

When you hit 25, you will unlock Specializations. I would suggest having a little bit of a look through the specializations. Spend some time reading through them, then choose which direction you might want to go.

But don't be too hasty with spending points just at this time unless you have a clear goal of which direction you wanna go. The Knowledge points are going to be the limited commodity that you will never be able to get enough of, and you will always want more of. You can continue leveling Alchemy and return to choosing a specialization and spending knowledge points a bit later.

You will need 50 skill points to unlock the second specialization and 100 for the third. 50 is not that hard to reach, but it may take you a little while to level all the way to 100. So, be aware that you will have to choose which one you feel you can do without for the longest.

25 - 26

1x Primal Convergent - 1x Awakened Earth, 1x Awakened Fire, 1x Awakened Air, 1x Awakened Frost, 1x Awakened Order

This is for the First Craft bonus, but you will also use this in many recipes. This recipe is a lot more expensive than the others, so you can skip this, but I think it's just better to get your first craft bonus while it still gives skill points.

26 - 27

1x Phial of Tepid Versatility - 2x Awakened Frost, 16x Hochenblume

Craft one Phial of Tepid Versatility to get your "First craft" bonus.

27 - 29

Basic Phial Experimentation and Basic Potion Experimentation is the source of almost every new potion and flask.

Unfortunately, while doing experiments, you will often get a debuff that will prevent you from doing more experiments for 4 hours. If you got any Liquid Courage from experimentations, you could use it to remove the 4-hour CD.

Make one from each to get your First Craft Bonuses:

To make 1x Experimentation, you will need 5x Artisan's Mettle, 2x Dragon's Alchemical Solution, 1x Omnium Draconis

The Dragon's Alchemical Solution for the experimentations comes from destroying potions with Reclaim Concoctions.

Refreshing Healing Potions and Aerated Mana Potions will probably be the cheapest, but they will give fewer Dragon's Alchemical Solution than Flasks or Higher level potions.

Discovering Potions and Phials

Discovering Potions and Phials is not that rare. You will usually get at least 1 Discovery if you do 10 Experimentations, but it will get harder to discover potions/flasks once you only have 1 or 2 undiscovered ones left.

29 - 50

Make more experimentations until you discover something that can be used to level up to 50. So, any potions or flask that's orange. 

You can also make Phial of Tepid Versatility up to around 35.

50 - 56

2x Elemental Potion of Power - 6x Omnium Draconis, 2x Primal Convergent

56 - 65

If at this point, you discovered any potion or flask that you can sell at the Auction House in large quantities, I recommend making that until it turns grey. Otherwise, your only option is to make more experimentations or more Elemental Potion of Power.

Basically, every Potion and Flasks that you can discover will stop giving skill points at 65. (a few at 70).

65 - 100

Your only option to level to 100 will be making Basic Phial Experimentation and Basic Potion Experimentation. Both of these spells give you skill point up to 100, but you will get skill points much less frequently between 90-100 because both will be green.
