TBC Classic Alchemy Leveling guide 1-375 for Burning Crusade Classic

This TBC Classic Alchemy Leveling guide will show you the fastest way to level your Alchemy skill up from 1 to 375 in Burning Crusade Classic. I recommend leveling Alchemy and Herbalism together because you can save a lot of gold if you can farm all the needed herbs. 

Alchemy guide sections:

Preparing for TBC Classic launch

You can make classic potions up to 315 or 330 if you want a bit of a headstart at the start of the expansion and use fewer Outland herbs. Below you will find the list of herbs that you can gather before TBC launch.

I would only recommend making them up to 315 until you can learn Elixir of Healing Power. It's a much more useful potion that players will use during raiding in TBC. There is also a chance to discover the new flask recipes from crafting potions/elixirs, but you can only discover them from crafting TBC potions/elixirs.

I think Felweed and Dreaming Glory will only be expensive for the first few days. Everyone will be leveling in the new Outland zones, and both herbs can be gathered in every single zone.

These are the potions that you can make up to 315:

If you want to make them up to 330:

Greater Arcane Elixir turns green at 320, so I wouldn't recommend making it up to 330.

Approximate Materials Required:

There are many yellow recipes used in the guide, which means you won't gain skill points every time. I added 10-20 extra herbs for most of these recipes, but it's still possible you will have to get a few more if you have the worst luck.

Classic (1 - 300)

TBC (300 - 375)

Alchemy Trainers

You can learn Alchemy from any of these NPCs below. Just click on any of the links below to see the trainer's exact location. You can also walk up to a guard in any city and ask where the Alchemy trainer is, and then the trainer will be marked with a red flag on your map.

Classic Trainers (1-300)

In Burning Crusade Classic, you can learn Journeyman, Expert, and Artisan Alchemy from trainers in every major city. You don't have to visit different trainers anymore.

Horde trainers:

Alliance trainers:

  • Neutral: Both factions can also learn it from Lorokeem in Shattrath City. /way 45.8 20.4

300 - 315

Make 15 from one of these:

Alternative recipes:

If you want a bit of a headstart at the start of the expansion and use fewer Felweed, then you can make a few more classic potions. But, I would only recommend making them up to 315 until you can learn Elixir of Healing Power. It's a much more useful potion that players will use in TBC during raiding, so you are not actually wasting your gold making almost useless potions.

These are the potions that you can make:

315 - 330

25 x Elixir of Healing Power - 25 Golden Sansam, 25 Dreaming Glory

330 - 335

5 x Elixir of Draenic Wisdom - 5 Terocone, 5 Felweed

Make Mad Alchemist's Potion if you have a lot of Ragveil.

335 - 340

5 x Super Healing Potion - 10 Netherbloom, 5 Felweed

Make the previous recipe 5 more times if you don't have Netherbloom.

340 - 355

15 x Super Mana Potion - 30 Dreaming Glory, 15 Felweed

Recipe: Super Mana Potion is sold by Daga Ramba (Horde) and Haalrun (Alliance).

IMPORTANT: Horde players should also buy Recipe: Major Dreamless Sleep Potion because you will need it in the next step.

These are limited supply recipes, so if someone bought them before you, you have to wait for them to respawn. Roughly 18-20 minutes for the Mana Potion and 5-10 minutes for the Dreamless potion.

355 - 375

40 x Major Dreamless Sleep Potion - 40 Dreaming Glory, 40 Nightmare Vine

Recipe: Major Dreamless Sleep Potion is sold by Daga Ramba (Horde) and Leeli Longhaggle (Alliance)

This is also a limited supply recipe, so if someone bought it before you, you have to wait for it to respawn. (5-10 minutes)

This recipe will be green for the last 3 points, so you might have to make more.

Alternative recipe:

40x Elixir of Major Shadow Power - 40 Ancient Lichen, 40 Nightmare Vine

This is a much better potion to make if you can buy the recipe. Elixir of Major Shadow Power is used by Shadow Priests and Warlocks for raiding, so you can easily sell all of these at the Auction House.

The recipe is sold by Nakodu at Shattrath City. You will need Revered reputation with the Lower City faction to buy the recipe.


Congratulations on reaching 375! Please send feedback about the guide if you think there are parts I could improve, or you found typos, errors, wrong material numbers!
