This is a guide to all of the Burning Crusade Alchemy recipes, organized by the source of the recipe. (Within each section, the list is sorted by the minimum skill required.)

See also the Sources of Wrath alchemy recipes.

All Alchemy recipes are used by Alchemists to learn to create potions, oils, elixirs, and flasks. Recipes may be trained at a trainer, automatically learned via random discoveries, or learned from a Recipe item. These Recipe items can be purchased from vendors or found as loot. Some recipes can only be purchased after achieving a certain reputation level with a particular faction -- see faction recipes.

There are 75 Outland Alchemy recipes introduced with the Burning Crusade and subsequent patches.


Twelve recipes are learned from a master Alchemy trainer in Outland:


Eight Outland Recipes can be purchased from different vendors in Outland (sometimes only in Limited Quantity).


Twenty-two Outland recipes (including four flasks recipes that were available prior to the Burning Crusade) are obtainable via raising your reputation with various factions.

The discovery system grants a very small chance to learn a new recipe when making other potions.

Potion and Flask Discoveries

Six potion and flask recipes can be randomly learned via discovery, when making flasks, elixirs or potions.

Transmute Discoveries

Six transmute recipes can be randomly learned via discovery, when performing a transmute.

Cauldron Discoveries

Five Cauldron recipes can be randomly learned via discovery when making the related Major Protection potions. Note that even though there is a Major Holy Protection Potion, the Cauldron of Major Holy Protection has not been reported as discovered and so does not appear to exist.

Specific Monster Drops

Nine recipes are bind on pickup and are known to drop off specific mobs. You have to go and farm those mobs to get the recipes. The recipe will only drop if an alchemist is present in the group; non-alchemists will not see the drop.

World Monster Drops

Instance Monster Drops

Random World Drops

The remaining seven recipes are random world drops. Keep an eye on the Auction House for them.
