Alchemy Leveling Guide: Alchemy 1-450

Updated: 8-21-2009

If you have questions or want to share ideas, please visit our Professions Forum.

This guide will help you to level your Alchemy from 1 to 450. It’s going to require a lot of herbs, so you are going to need to buy them, or take up herbalism as well to be able to supply your own. Alchemy and Herbalism go well together, as one will feed to materials for the other. 

One of the first steps is to assemble the raw materials you will need. The herbs can often be found on the auction house, if you don’t gather them yourself. The draw back of buying the materials is it will be very expensive. You will also need to pick up vials. These can be purchased at a alchemy supply NPC for a minimal cost.


First of all go to any Alchemy Trainer in the Captial Cities and learn Apprentice Alchemy. If you don't know where they are just get directions from a guard.
