After first visiting the Stormspire of Netherstorm, I was reminded about the 3 specializations in alchemy that are now available. I thought that it would be relevant to start a topic about it to help people (including myself) to choose.

As a reminder, the three specializations are Potions, Elixirs, and Transmutations. Potion specialization has a chance to create an extra potion when creating consumable potions (such as health, mana). Elixir specialization is very similar, having a chance to create an extra elixir (which I believe are the ones that provide buffs instead). Transmutation specialization has a chance to yield a better outcome, such as twice as many products.

Each specialization has a corresponding quest/trainer. The transmutation teacher is an ethereal in Stormspire, potion in Cenarion Refuge, and Elixir in Shattrath.

I believe now that I will master in transmutation. Historically, I have never gotten any really rare recipes, so I found transmutations to be much more beneficial. For this I will need for [wowitem]Primal Might[/wowitem] to learn. If anyone has any primal air, fire, earth, water, or mana, please contact me Smiley

Thanks for starting up this topic, Rivs.  I've been wondering where the specializations were, too.

A few things I'm wondering about:

Once you pick one specialization, are you then stuck-- like the armour vs weapon specialization in Blacksmithing?

Are transmutes always increased yield, or just a chance.  Is that the same w/ potions and elixirs, too, or does transmuting have a built in advantage in that it always works.

Are there any special recipes only available to someone specialized, or is it just increased yield? 

Is there any advantage to trying to cover the bases across guild alchemists, or is it meh?  I don't think there are any Aldor or Scryer recipes, so I don't that is an issue.

So many questions, so little playing time.....

Unlike the tailoring specializations, alchemy specializations are just a proc chance - even the transmutes.   A potion or elixir person can proc 1-3 extra potion/elixirs one each attempt to make.  A transmuter could not see a proc for weeks (however, it will be nice Cheesy).  Basically if someone specializes in potions or elixirs - expect to be asked to make a lot of potions as the proc is too useful that it makes doing your own potions/elixirs if you aren't specialized effectively more expensive. 

If and when Gnofear gets up there - she will probably be going Elixir.

There are no specific BOP/rare patterns that can only done by a specialist.

The specializations ARE permanent, from what I've heard.

There is one alchemy recipe with the Scryers, but none for the Aldor. I plan on getting the rep to make these, but then again I probably won't be pot specced Smiley

Thanks brad!

I think i will specialize elixirs. We should probably coordinate together and try to have  at least one person in each.

i think it is elixir but i could be mistaken. I know for a fact that i would rather have 2 flask of supreme powers instead of 2 major mana pots. I have most of the high end recipes for alchemy. I think elixir is for flasks, but i could be wrong and i wouldnt be surprised if i was wrong.

It would make sense that if the flasks fell under a category, it would be elixirs.

Also, for anyone interested, there is a vendor pattern for the flask of supreme power. However, it is only available for those that are exalted with the keepers of time. Should take a while, but I'm friendly so far Smiley

In an attempt to fill the boots of rivs, i'll declare that i am a 355 alch capable of transmuting both diamonds and mercurial stones.  In addition, i plan on being specialized in transmutes as soon as i have the money to get the 3 mights required for it

All of the BC alchemy information is listed on the Wiki. All potions, all quests, everything. It's all there.
