Alchemy – Choosing your Specialization

If you chose alchemy as your profession, at level 68 and your alchemy is at 325, you will be able to choose what specialization you want – elixir, potions or transmute. A specialization will give you the ability to produce more than one product using the materials for one. For instance, you could be lucky in making one potion and it ends up being five potions. These are called as “procs”. Choosing a specialization is a big part of earning gold using alchemy because of the extra items that you create because they are free of charge! But before anything else, let us differentiate the different specializations and how you can master them.

Elixir Master

This is the most popular choice of gold makers due to the fact that they will be able to “proc” in making flasks like Flask of the Frost Wyrm and Flask of Endless rage. And these flasks are raid requirements and therefore needed on a daily basis! You will be able to get the quest to obtain Elixir Master from Apothecary Antonivich in Thrallmar, Hellfire Peninsula if you are Horde. He is on the ground floor of the tower up the hill. If you are an Alliance, Alchemist Gribble is in Honor Hold, Hellfire Peninsula in the tower, west of the keep.

Get the quest “Master of Elixir” which is a 2 part series. The first one requires you to go to Shattrath City and talk to Lorokeem. He is in the lower platform of the second Skettis Tree House.

He will give you the second part of the quest “Master of Elixir” . He requires you to go to Black Morass and get 10 Essences of Infinity from the rift Lords plus other elixirs you must make. Click the link on Wowhead or just view the picture below:

Just get a group of friends and queue for Black Morass. You could try soloing the instance especially if you are already level 80. You will have to farm/buy out the materials needed to make the elixirs. The totals materials needed are: 15x Ancient Lichen, 15x Terocone, 15x Felweed and 15 Imbued Vials. If you are also a herbalist, it will be easy to get these materials. If you are not a herbalist, you can search the auction house for the herbs. If the herbs are too expensive, search for the elixirs themselves. Once you have all the materials, turn it in and you will be an Elixir Master.

Potions Master

Potions Master get procs from making potions like Runic Mana Potion, Runic Healing Potion, Potion of Speed, Potion of Wild Magic and Indestructible Potion. The last 3 are the most commonly used potions on raids. These potions have a very short time limit, unlike flasks which lasts for hours so there is a possibility that these potions are consumed several times in one boss encounter if the raid keeps on wiping.

The quest “Master of Potions” still starts with Apothecary Antonivich if you’re Horde and Alchemist Gribble if you’re Alliance. And the quest requires you to talk to Lauranna Thar’well in Cenarion Refuge, Zangarmarsh.

Lauranna will then give you the second part of “Master of Potions” and ask you to obtain the following:

The Botanist’s Field Guide can be obtained by going to The Botanica and killing High Botanist Freywinn. The others you have to craft by yourself or just buy them out from the auction house. Again, check if it is cheaper to just buyout the potions themselves compared to buying out the herbs. The herbs can get a little pricey because farmers know people need old level herbs to level their alchemy. Turn these in and you will become a Master of Potions.

Transmutation Mastery

Get the “Master of Transmutation” quest from Apothecary Antonivich (Horde) or Alchemist Gribble (Alliance). You will be required to go to Stormspire in Netherstorm and talk to Zarevhi.

He will only require you to give him 4 Primal Might. This is quite easy to obtain especially after the cooldown of Primal Might has been removed. You have several options to obtain this: First is to farm the materials yourself needed to make a primal might: Primal Earth, Primal Water, Primal Air, Primal Fire and Primal Mana. You can farm these from Nagrand in the Elemental Plateau, East of the Throne of Elements.

You can also search the auction house for these Primals if you are too lazy to farm. It might be tempting to buy Primal Might as well if it sells cheap (or if you have a lot of money).

If you’re planning to make your own Primal Might, you can buy the recipe for primal might from Skreah in Shattrath City in the Skettis Tree House.

Changing Specialization

Don’t worry if one of these days you think you need to change specialization. If you already have a specialization, you will be able to change it at the cost of 150 gold. You just go to the specialization trainer you want and pay the npc 150 gold and that’s it. Ever since this was implemented, some people decide to take the transmutation mastery first and just pay 150 gold to transfer to elixir mastery or potions mastery. Transmutation mastery is the only specialization that does not require you to go to an instance and kill something. For those with extra money and not a lot of time, transmutation mastery is the way to go and just pay an npc to change mastery. Changing specialization will not affect your alchemy level and changing specialization every now and then will not increase the fee unlike unlearning talents from your class trainer. The fee will always be 150 gold.
