Shadowlands Alchemy Leveling Guide 1-175

This Shadowlands Alchemy leveling guide will show you the fastest way how to level your Shadowlands Alchemy skill up from 1 to 175 as inexpensively as possible.

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.

Elixirist Au'pyr

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.

Check out my farming guides if you want to farm any of these herbs:

Leveling Shadowlands 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.

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:

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.

Alternative recipe:

10x Crafter's Mark II - 150 Death Blossom, 50 Rune Etched Vial, 50 Distilled Death Extract

Crafter's Mark II is a really good alternative if you have a Cordial reputation with Ve'nari. You can purchase this item from Ve'nari even with your alts because Ve'nari reputation is account-wide.

If you never farmed Ve'nari reputation, just skip this part. It just takes too long to reach Cordial reputation with Ve'nari if you are just starting, and it's not worth to raise your reputation only to level this profession.

The Recipe: Crafter's Mark II is sold by Ve'nari for 300x Stygia.

NOTE: To gain access to purchasing the items across all characters on your account, you must log into the character with the highest Ve’nari reputation.

120 - 125

7 x Potion of Sacrificial Anima - 42 Widowbloom

The reason I recommend switching to Potion of Sacrificial Anima at 120 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.

Alternative recipe:

5x Crafter's Mark II - 75 Death Blossom, 25 Rune Etched Vial, 25 Distilled Death Extract

Read the 110-120 on part how to get this recipe.

125 - 157

You can buy Distilled Death Extract from Distributor Au'naci. He is near your trainer.

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:

These recipes will be yellow for the last few points, so you might have to make a few more.

Alternative recipe:

You can still make Crafter's Mark II, but since the potions are pretty useful and sell pretty well on the Auction House, I would stick with the potions. You can get most of your gold back if you sell them.

13x Crafter's Mark II - 195 Death Blossom, 65 Rune Etched Vial, 65 Distilled Death Extract

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)

Alternative recipe:

5x Crafter's Mark II - 75 Death Blossom, 25 Rune Etched Vial, 25 Distilled Death Extract

Read the 110-120 on part how to get this recipe.
