Cataclysm: Alchemy Gold Making Guide Elixir/Flask Spec by Tarou
What’s up guy and girl players of World of Warcraft. This is Ryutarou AkA Tarou bringing you an Alchemy Gold Making Guide! For more FREE WoW guides, check out my channel at RyutaroAkaTarou In this Alchemy Gold Making Guide, I’ll be focusing on the Elixir Spec side of Alchemy. To get started you’ll need to have Alchemy leveled up decently and if you need help with that, I have all 1-525 leveling guides on my website at tarouwowguides.com. It will also teach you how to get the Elixir Spec if you’re unsure. A good profession to go with Alchemy Elixir Spec is Herbalism. Alright, now that the initial prep is out of the way, you can start banking with Elixir Alchemy. I like to start the day off getting mats for whichever CD I plan to do. Today, I’m going with Living Elements but you could also do Truegold or sell your cooldown in trade. As for which is better, take the sale price minus the mats and do the one with the highest profit. Next, I start buying up mats for making flasks. The best time to get mats is early morning to afternoon or on the weekends.
This is usually when they are the cheapest but monitor your server’s Auction House to find out the best time for you. It’s also a good idea to watch trade chat for bulk sellers and to setup some sort of CoD or direct trade deal with farmers if you can. Of course, if you already have Herbalism, farm the mats yourself. Now that you’ve got some mats, you can start making flasks and elixirs. The current proc rate is semi-low and the max is four extra flasks or elixirs which will look like x5 but you’re already making one so it’s really four extra. The key to selling flasks and elixirs is timing. 6-8pm is peak time and as you can see here, sales started at around 5:30pm and were fairly slow but by 6:50pm things started to pick up fast. By 7:22pm I started to run out of flasks and looks like I also pissed someone off. Called a nerd by someone with the name, “Knowledge”, rofl. Oh noes.
Alright, so it’s been it’s been a day and time to see what sold, what didn’t, and what the total profit was. Grand total for Flasks of: + 30,231g in net sales – 26,365.56g in mats —————————- = 3,865.44g in net profit for the day ____________________________________ Grand total for Elixirs of: + 900g in net sales – 418.8g in mats —————————- = 481.2g in net profit for the day Add Flasks and Elixirs together and the grand total is: + 31,131g in net sales – 26,784.36g in mats —————————- = 4,346.64g in net profit for the day For the full break down of what sold, for how much, and what it cost to make, check this guide on my website at tarouwowguides.com 4,346.64g in profit isn’t bad but when you see it took over 31k gold it’ll make you rethink if the risk is worth it or not. Elixirs are good for players without a lot of gold to sink into Flasks. Just be careful as you saw some didn’t net a profit at all and were a waste of time as well as some Flasks were too. To make sure you don’t make these mistakes. Try getting mats for the same price or cheaper than you can sell the item for and don’t count procs.
That way you should always net a profit. Finally, Elixir spec so far in Cataclysm is harder to have success with than it was in Wrath so tread lightly and be careful you aren’t wasting your time and losing gold. If you have any questions at all, write them in the comments on my website or below and I’ll go over them in a follow up FAQ video for Alchemy elixir spec. That’s it for this Alchemy Gold Making Guide – Elixir Spec and I hope you liked it.
