WoW Alchemy Leveling Guide 1-600

Important: If you want to learn the best ways to make gold I highly recommend you visit this site to learn how to maximize your farming, increase your gold making with your professions, and learn the secrets to making 5,000+ gold an hour.

This guide will help you level your Alchemy from 1-600 in the fastest and cheapest way possible.  I recommend while using this guide that you buy the herbs you need off of the Auction House because this will save you a lot of time and allow you to begin making high level flasks, elixirs, pots, and so on to sell for gold or for your own use.

If you are planning on making gold with your Alchemy or don’t think you’ll have enough gold to buy all the herbs you’ll need to level it up I highly recommend that you read this guide first to make sure you’ll have enough gold to buy as many herbs as you can on the Auction House and so you’ll know how to sell the items you create for maximum profit.

This Alchemy Leveling Guide is updated for patch 5.0.5 and Mists of Pandaria.

In this guide, I’ll help you level your Alchemy from 1-600 with as little gold as possible. Leveling Alchemy is easier than it might seem, especially with the paths in this guide. If you are interesting in leveling Herbalism as well, take a look at my Herbalism guide with maps for levels 1-600.

* Apprentice & Journeyman Alchemy (Leveling from 1-140)

Leveling Alchemy from 1-140 is very straight forward. All of the following recipes can be learned from any major city’s Alchemy Trainer. The herbs you’ll need for this section include Peacebloom, Silverleaf, Briarthorn and Bruiseweed. All are easy to find in level 1-10 and 10-20 zones while leveling Herbalism, or on the Auction House. If you are concerned about gold or how to make the most gold with your Alchemy, read this guide for the best information on the topic.

While leveling Alchemy to 300, you will need Goldthorn, Wild Steelbloom, Khadgar’s Whisker, Sungrass, Purple Lotus, Blindweed, Golden Sansam, and Mountain Silversage. I recommend you buy these herbs off the Auction House.  If you’re short on gold, learn how to make it by reading this guide.

In this section you’ll follow the easiest/cheapest path to 350 Alchemy, which requires Golden Sansam and Felweed from Hellfire Penninsula. Ragveil and Dreaming Glory from Zangarmarsh and Netherbloom from Netherstorm.  As always though, it’s easier and faster to simply buy what you need off of the Auction House.

* Grand Master Alchemy (Leveling from 350-450)

For this section of the guide you’ll most likely be able to buy all of the supplies you require on the Auction House, which is a great time saver but not so great on your gold supply. If you’d like to save time, instead of looking for herbs, but don’t have much gold please look at this guide.  You’ll be using Goldclover, Talandra’s Rose, Tiger Lily, Adder’s Tongue, Icethorn, Lichbloom, and Cinderbloom for these levels.
