Alchemy Guide for Season of Discovery (SoD) Phase 3

Alchemy Guide for Season of Discovery (SoD)

Phase 3 of Season of Discovery brings the skill cap for professions to 300, allowing players to max out all of their crafting and gathering skills. For the Alchemy profession, that means you’ll be able to brew up almost any potion or elixir in the game, as well as a few new recipes that have been added for this season.

Alchemy Leveling & Trainers

Check out our Classic Alchemy Guide for trainer locations, a leveling guide, and more. Everything in that guide applies to Season of Discovery except for the level requirements for higher skill ranks (level 26 for Expert and level 41 for Artisan). There are some new recipes that are exclusive to Season of Discovery which we’ll cover in this guide, but they aren’t needed for leveling.

Learning Artisan Alchemy

From Phase 3 on, players will be able to level their professions all the way to 300 skill, or Artisan level – the maximum skill for Vanilla WoW.

Artisan Alchemy can only be learned from these specific trainers:

Alchemy Specializations

Upon reaching 275 Alchemy skill, Alchemists are now able to pick up two crafting specialization quests that will increase the yield of their crafting recipes.

These quests are Mixology for Fun and Profit, which increases the number of potions and elixirs you’ll craft, and Master of Transmutation, which increases the number of items you’ll produce with transmutation recipes.

For a walkthrough of these quests, check out our Alchemy Specialization Quests Guide.

New Alchemy Recipes for Season of Discovery

Several new recipes have been added to the Alchemy profession for Season of Discovery.

Phase 3 adds three new flasks to the game:

The following recipes were added in Phase 2:

One new Alchemy recipe was added to the game for Phase 1:

Phase 3 Alchemy Recipes

Here are the best Alchemy recipes you can craft in Phase 3 of Season of Discovery, sorted by type.

Flasks

Vanilla Wow flask recipes drop from level 60 bosses and crafting them requires an Alchemy Table, which only exists inside Scholomance and Blackwing Lair, neither of which will be accessible until later on.

However, there are two new recipes for epic, reusable flasks for Alchemists in Phase 3 that can be obtained by completing a new quest chain in the Sunken Temple raid.

Transmutes

High-level Alchemists gain access to transmutation recipes, which allow them to transform one item (such as a metal bar or an elemental essence) into another of the same kind. Most of these recipes have a shared cooldown of one day.

Transmutation is the only way to get Arcanite Bars, which will be needed to craft the highly-sought after Nightfall and Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker weapons at level 60. This transmutation will put all of your transmutes on cooldown for two days.

The Transmute: Water to Air recipe will not be obtainable until the Scholomance dungeon is accessible in Phase 4.

Recently went to take a gander at Trade, and I saw listed some of the potions that are in Phase 2, how is that possible?
