Alchemy Leveling Guide

I was looking online today and noticed that while there are dozens of different guides to leveling trade skills and I was unable to find one set up for what I specifically wanted to do.

My plan here is to level my character with two gathering skills for the money, Herbalism will be one of them. Once I am at or near the level cap I will drop the other gathering profession and pick up Alchemy.  I will only keep what I will need for leveling on a bank alt, while selling the rest. This plan could be used in that way, or to level as you go. It would also work well if you were already level 70 and changing professions.

The things I was looking at as I put this together were trying to only use the recipes at orange if at all possible, for the guaranteed skill up. On a few occasions I went away from that, but usually on recipes that will sell well. I also tried to steer clear of faction specific recipes as much as possible since I hate rep grinding. There is a grand total of one faction recipe in my plan.

level 355- 365

Major dreamless sleep potion x10 (vendor recipe)

dreaming glory x1

nightmare vine x1

Now we come down to a few different options. If you have a few days and some Patience you can follow the route I will be, and that is to get revered with sporregar for the recipe: transmute primal earth to primal water,. I will then buy, transmute, and sell once a day till 375. if you need to be at 375 right away here are the easiest alternatives I see. Either continue making major dreamless sleep potions until 375 ( recipe turns yellow at 365, green at 372) or grind Cenarion expedition rep for the major nature protection potion. I will probably just do the transmutes.

level 365 – 375 (transmute method)

transmute primal earth to primal water, (requires Sporregar, revered)

Primal earth x1

level 365 – 375 (alternative method)

Major nature protection potion x10(requires Cenerion expedition, exalted)

priaml life x1

mana thistle x3

imbued vial x5


Here is a list of all the required materials for the crafting, just so I know what to stockpile before selling the rest off. Note these mats are based on doing primal earth to primal water transmutes from 365 to 375. If you go one of the other routes adjust your stockpile accordingly.
