This is a guide on economical alchemy training. However, you should be sure to take a reality check on any materials you buy. Prices will fluctuate across realms.

As this is intended to save you money, buy only the materials you are sure you will need. If you run out, buy more. It is always more cost-effective to gather your own materials, rather than buying them. Avoid having extras, but if you do, try to sell them back on the Auction House.
