Complete Alchemy Leveling Guide

Since Wrath of the Lich King went live the prices of herbs have increased by a lot. If you're a little poor on the gold side you should consider Herbalism as your companion profession. With herbs frequently going for 20-40 gold (or more) per stack you will save a ton of gold by gathering your own.

Alchemy

The alchemist mixes herbs, gathered by Herbalism, and reagents in order to generate elixirs, potions, oils, flasks and cauldrons with a variety of effects. A player can create healing, invisibility, elemental resistance and mana potions; oils to coat weapons; and much more.

Alchemy is useful to all character classes. Melee fighters can use alchemy to create buff and healing potions. Spell casting classes can use alchemy to create mana potions and related buffs. You can create potions for yourself, sell them to others, or give them to your party members and friends. Alchemists are well loved when they hand out potions.

With the price increase in herbs since Wrath was released it's hard for Alchemists to make a profit, though some potions will sell well. Check prices on your server and eith gather your own herbs (to keep costs down) or keep an eye on the AH for screaming deals on herbs.

Cataclysm Tips

If you're farming mobs on the new Cataclysm zones, and have mased your alchemy skills, then try making yourself a few potions of treasure finding. The extra loot you find on the mobs might easily more than pay for the costs of creating the potions.
