'Relic of the Past' Optional Reagents - Patch 9.0.1

The Shadowlands pre-expansion Patch 9.0.1 is going live on October 13th in NA (October 14th in EU)! There are a lot of changes to classes and basically everything, but there are very few profession changes. I will only focus on the new Relic of the Past optional reagents in this post, but you can read through all the new changes on mmo-champion.

What are these 'Relic of the Past' reagents?

New optional reagents that you can use to increase or decrease a crafted item's item level and level requirement.

Who can craft Relics of the Past?

Tailors, Leatherworkers, and Blacksmiths can create 5 different relics:

All 5 of these 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 8 different cloths. The 8 recipes below 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.

Where to learn Relic of the Past recipes?

You can learn the recipes from each expansion's profession trainer. (you will automatically learn the new Legion and Draenor Recipes).

You can find the trainer's location in each of my profession leveling guides if you are having trouble finding them. You can also just walk up to a guard in major cities then ask where the profession trainer is. Asking the guard will place a red marker on your map at the trainer's location.

Where to get Penumbra Thread, Luminous Flux, and Curing Salt?

These items are sold by Blacksmithing, Tailoring, and Leatherworking supply vendors in main cities. I haven't checked every single vendor, so I don't know every NPC who sells them, but I can confirm that you can buy them from the vendor near your trainer in Orgrimmar, Stormwind, Dazar'alor, and Boralus.
