Alchemy Guide – Battle for Azeroth

Alchemy Changes in BfA

In BfA each expansion has it’s own professions tier with a max level.

  • Classic professions max out at 300
  • Burning Crusade, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and Mists of Pandaria professions max out at 75
  • Warlords of Draenor and Legion professions max out at 100
  • Battle for Azeroth professions max out at 150

In BfA alchemy now has a seperate skill depending on your faction, [Kul Tiran Alchemy] for (Alliance) and [Zandalari Alchemy] for (Horde), everything else is still the same between the two.

Alchemy Trainers

  • For (Horde) Clever Kumali is found in the Terrace of Crafters in Dazar’alor.
  • For (Alliance) Elric Whalgrene is found in the Tradewinds Market in Boralus.

If you have trouble locating your profession trainers, as usual you an ask a guard for directions and they will place a marker on your map.

You may notice that the ranking system is still present from Legion, however ranks 1 and 2 only require yout o reach a certain skill level to learn them. Rank 3 requires you to have learned rank 2, and then some come from vendors with Revered reputation while a few will come from World Quests.

  • Rank 1: Nothing special just allows you to craft the item. These are learned from profession trainers.
  • Rank 2: Reduces the amount of materials required to craft the recipe. Most of these are learned from profession trainers at a certain skill level, however certain ones are learned via other means.
  • Rank 3: Gives you a chance to craft multiples at no extra cost. These are acquired from vendors once you reach certain leels of reputation with different factions.
