Dragonflight Alchemy Overview

“Mix potions, elixirs, flasks, oils and other alchemical substances into vials using herbs and other reagents. Your concoctions can restore health and mana, enhance attributes, or provide any number of other useful (or not-so-useful) effects. High level alchemists can also transmute essences and metals into other essences and metals. Alchemists can specialize as a Master of Potions, Master of Elixirs, or a Master of Transmutation.”

Dragonflight Crafting System Overview

Quality and Expected Quality

Every newly crafted equipment will have 5 different qualities. Crafted Reagents and consumable items will have 3 different qualities. Higher quality equipment will have higher ilvl, while higher quality consumables will give you more stat or last longer.

If you hover the little icons near the bar, then you can see what kind of items you can get at higher quality.



Optional Reagents

Optional Reagents are used to set your desired secondary stats, craft higher ilvl items, and they can also add a couple of unique bonuses.

Finishing Reagents can be used to get extra Inspiration, Skill, Multicraft, or Resourcefulness when you craft an item.

For example, you can add Illustrious Insight to add +30 Skill. This can be really useful if you only miss a few skill points to craft an item at higher ilvl.


Profession Equipment

Profession Tools and Accessories will give you bonuses to profession Skill, Multicraft, Inspiration, Crafting Speed, Finesse, Deftness, Perception, and Resourcefulness.



Dragon Isles Profession Knowledge

Dragon Isles Profession Knowledge points are the “talent points” that you can put into your profession specialization to learn a new skill, stats, and bonuses.

You get one Dragon Isle Profession Knowledge point when you craft any item or gather a herb/ore/leather for the first time. But after that, every source seems to be something with a weekly reset, so pretty much all profession Knowledge gains will be time-gated.

This is something that I couldn’t test properly in the beta since some of the sources were bugged, not resetting with weekly reset, etc. It’s still not clear to me how many you can actually get each week, but if they don’t change anything, it will be VERY slow to gain Knowledge Points. It would take months to max out even a single specialization.



Crafting Orders

Crafting Orders are a new way to request another player to craft something for you for almost any Dragon Isles crafting recipe. The interface basically looks like the Auction House, it’s very easy to use.

  • All reagents must be provided by the one who posted the Crafting Order.
  • Completing a crafting order as a crafter will cost you nothing, and you can gain skill points in your professions. (if the recipes would normally give you skill points)
  • You will also be able to customize the order by including various Optional Reagents depending on the recipe, dictating exactly what you want to be crafted. For example, many equipment recipes will allow you to specify secondary stats.
  • There are Public and Personal Crafting Orders. Public ones can be completed by anyone, but Personal orders can only be completed by the person you send them to.


Item Recrafting

Every crafting profession can recraft an already-crafted item. This is very useful once you gain higher profession skill because you don’t have to craft your items again, you can recraft them at a higher ilvl for a fraction of the cost.

  • Recrafting items don’t reroll secondary stats unless you use optimal reagents.
  • You can add optional reagents that increase ilvl.
  • Non-crafters can use recrafting via the usage of the Crafting Order system, but this feature currently only works for Personal Crafting Orders and not Public Orders. You will have to find a guild mate or friends or look for someone on the trade chat.
