WoTLK Classic Alchemy Leveling Guide 1-450 for Wrath of the Lich King Classic

Here is our WoTLK Classic Alchemy leveling guide 1-450. Master the art of brewing potions and become a grand master!

Alchemy is a core component of raiding in WoTLK Classic. You can craft many different powerful Flasks, Potions, and Elixirs that can be used to improve your raiding performance.

On top of that, alchemists are the masters of transmutations and they can craft epic gems in later phases, such as Transmute: Cardinal Ruby. They can also craft rare materials such Transmute: Titanium for profit.
