Alchemy Leveling Guide 1 – 60

  • 1-60
    59 x [Minor Healing
    – 59 Peacebloom, 59 Silverleaf

    You’ll need these in the next step of the Alchemy guide.

60 – 140

Learn Alchemy Journeyman.

140 – 205

Learn Alchemy Expert.


25 x [Elixir of Fortitude] – 25
Wild Steelbloom, 25 Goldthorn

If you don’t have that many Goldthorn, make [Mana Potion] or [Lesser
Invisibility Potion]
up to around 195.
These recipes will be yellow.

If you don’t have any Goldthorn at all, you can make [Nature Protection Potion] between 190-215,
the recipe
is sold by these vendors.

205 – 285

Learn Alchemy Artisan.

  • 205-215
    10 x [Elixir of
    Greater Defense]
    – 10 Wild Steelbloom, 10 Goldthorn

    Read the end of the previous section if you don’t
    have Goldthorn.

You can make this one up to 250 if it’s easier for you to get Sungrass instead of Blindweed.

If you are at or above level 85 and you will level Alchemy past 500, you can skip the next step.

You will use [Zen
Alchemist Stone]
for transmutes. You can get this trinket from your trainer when you reach Alchemy skill

285 – 350

  • 335-340
    5 x [Super
    Healing Potion]
    – 10 Netherbloom, 5 Felweed

    Make the previous recipe 5 more times if you don’t have

350 – 425

You can make [Pygmy Oil] up to
385 if you can find some cheap Pygmy Suckerfish.

  • 385-395
    10 x [Elixir
    of Mighty Strength]
    – 20 Tiger Lily

    This recipe will be yellow for the last 5 points, you might need
    to make more than 10.

  • 415-425This recipe turns green at 422, so you might need to make more than 20.

    20 x [Runic Mana Potion]
    20 Goldclover, 40 Lichbloom

425 – 500

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.

Make [Mythical Mana Potion] if
Whiptail is cheaper than Heartblossom.

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.

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.

    1. 15 x [Mantid Elixir]
    30 Green Tea Leaf
    2. 15 x [Potion of the Jade Serpent] – 15 Green Tea Leaf, 15
    3. 15 x [Elixir of Weaponry] – 30 Silkweed
    4. 15 x [Potion of the Mountains]
    – 15 Green Tea Leaf, 15 Rain Poppy
    5. 15 x [Mad Hozen Elixir]– 30 Rain Poppy

  • 545-575Choose only one.

    35 x [Virmen’s Bite] – 35
    Snow Lily, 35 Green Tea Leaf
    35 x [Elixir of Perfection] 35 Snow Lily, 35
    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
