Alchemy Captain


"There will be no foolish wand-waving or silly incantations in this class. As such, I don't expect many of you to appreciate the subtle science and exact art that is potion-making. However, for those select few... Who possess, the predisposition... I can teach you how to bewitch the mind and ensnare the senses. I can tell you how to bottle fame, brew glory, and even put a stopper in death." -- Professor Severus Snape, Potions Master

    • You can also make [Deepstone Oil] between 470-475 and then turn the Deepstone Oils into [Mysterious Potion]. You should reach around 477 with this method.

Once you reach an Alchemy skill of 475, you may begin a quest to learn one of three specializations: Potions, Elixirs or Transmutations. Being specialized gives you a chance to create an extra 1 to 4 (for a total 5) items while crafting in the field you have selected. For example, a Master of Potions may be able to craft more than one [Super Mana Potion] for the same material cost as one.

  • 475-480
    • 5 x [Elixir of Deep Earth] - 10 Heartblossom
  • 480-490
    • 10 x [Elixir of Impossible Accuracy] - 10 Heartblossom, 10 Cinderbloom
    • Make [Mythical Mana Potion] if Whiptail is cheaper than Heartblossom.
  • 490-495
    • 5 x [Golemblood Potion] - 5 Heartblossom, 5 Volatile Life
  • 495-500
    • 5 x [Mythical Healing Potion] - 5 Twilight Jasmine

500 - 600

  • Learn Zen Alchemy.

From this point there are some significant changes to the leveling process. The trainers will only teach you 2 Pandarian recipes at 500 skill. These two recipes are used to unlock additional recipes. As a result there is no set progression in crafting for skill points.

  • 500-530
    • 40 x [Alchemist's Rejuvenation] or [Master Healing Potion] - 40 Green Tea Leaf
    • Make your trinket [Zen Alchemist Stone] if you need it.
At this point you probably discovered 5-8 new recipes. You should always prioritize potions that use Green Tea Leaf because it can be found in every zone and most likely it is always the cheapest herb.
How to determine which potions to make:
[Green Tea Leaf] > [Silkweed] > [Rain Poppy] > [Snow Lily] > [Fool's Cap]
You should save around 25 each of these herbs: Green Tea Leaf, Snow Lily and Fool's Cap. You will need them to reach 600 from 575 when you discover the new Mana Potion recipe. It will be the only orange recipe that you can use.
  • 530-545
    • If you have loads of Green Tea Leaf, you could just make the previous potions until you keep discovering new recipes. Once you make a green potion around 8 times and there was no new discovery, you should stop making it and start making a higher level potion in the list below.
    • I made a priority list of the recipes you probably discovered, Mantid Elixir is usually the best recipe you can get. This list is based on how hard is to get a particular herb, but obviously if you have 20 Green Tea Leaf and 150 Rain Poppy, you should make a potion that use 2 Rain Poppy.
    • Choose only one.
      • 15 x [Mantid Elixir] - 30 Green Tea Leaf
      • 15 x [Potion of the Jade Serpent] - 15 Green Tea Leaf, 15 Silkweed
      • 15 x [Elixir of Weaponry] - 30 Silkweed
      • 15 x [Potion of the Mountains] - 15 Green Tea Leaf, 15 Rain Poppy
      • 15 x [Mad Hozen Elixir]- 30 Rain Poppy
  • 545-575
    • Choose only one.
      • 35 x [Virmen's Bite] - 35 Snow Lily, 35 Green Tea Leaf
      • 35 x [Elixir of Perfection] 35 Snow Lily, 35 Silkweed
      • 35 x [Elixir of the Rapids] 35 Snow Lily, 35 Rain Poppy
There are 3 other potions that you can discover, they require Fool's Cap instead of Snow lily, so if you have loads of Fool's Cap, you can make those potions instead.
Between 570-580, you will discover [Master Mana Potion]. When you discover the recipe, you should start making it if your skill is at around 575, but the maximum I would recommend to make the potions above is until you reach 577.
  • 575-600
    • If you didn't discover this recipe yet because you were unlucky , you will have to make the previous recipes, or any other transmute recipe.
    • 25 x [Master Mana Potion] - 25 Green Tea Leaf, 25 Snow Lily, 25 Fool's Cap
