Alchemical Extravagance (Alchemy) is a Masterwork Professions quest that unlocks Alchemy recipes. Your Alchemy must be rank 25 and your Stronghold Guild Hall must be at least rank 10 to take this quest.

Objective[edit | edit source]

  • Complete Alchemy Tasks for The Artisan.

Once training begins you may not begin training another profession until it is complete. Training can be time consuming and expensive, do not begin training unless you are certain of your choice.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Artisan
I'm sure you're eager to put your new tool to the test. Luckily an order has just come in for [Oil of Vitriol] and [Aqua Fortis], half a dozen each.

You'll need [alum] and [nitre], gather them yourself with an explorer's chart, or buy them from the auction house. Distil the vitriol and combine with alum and nitre.

Your new alembic will aid with the distillation. You're liable to fail more than you succeed, the process is grueling, but stick with it. When you have the full order, bring it to me.

Steps[edit | edit source]

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

After turning in first materials:

The Artisan
Perhaps this hasn't been a waste of time after all, these mixtures came out as well as one could hope for. Seems you have more of a knack for this than I gave you credit.

You can practically taste the difference in the concentration of this vitriol... though I wouldn't recommend it.

Aqua Fortis will disolve just about any metal, but not gold or platinum. For that you'll need [Aqua Regia], bring me six flasks. Oh and none of that weak stuff alchemists around here use in potions, I still can't fathom drinking aqua regia.

After turning in second materials:

The Artisan
This is a strong batch, well done. hope you didn't breath too much in. Gah-hah!

You've done well relaying my lessons to your artisans, I've seen quite an improvement. I have an order from a certain harpy that I'd like you to fill. But I'll need you to master one more skill first.

You're going to disolve [gold nuggets] directly into the [aqua regia] and make a flask of [Dragon's Blood]. The stuff is used in enameling, gilting and glassmaking.

Just don't tell the jewelcrafter you buy the gold from you're planning to dissolve their hard work.

After turning in third materials:

The Artisan
The mixture takes its name from the red crystals that form if it is distilled further. The name can cause plenty of confusion for alchemists working with actual dragon's blood.

I mentioned before that an order came from The Master of Coin. To be fair she's maintained her end of the bargain, she even sent The Ranger to place the order, didn't bother me herself.

I'm a reasonable man, this is a chance for a peace offering. Here's where the [dragon's blood] comes in. She's ordered a new ledger. A good ledger ought to have gilted pages. I want you to make a [Gilded Ledger] and deliver it directly to her.

After turning in Gilded Ledger to The Master of Coin:

Master of Coin
Fantastic, I've been waiting for this! The Artisan made it, didn't he?

...Oh, you made it? Well... that's still great, it's a very nice ledger! Gilted pages even, should I sell it or use it? Ah, I—I mean of course I'll be using it!

It seems like those "pointers" are really paying off. Thank you, Adventurer, I really appreciate it!

Completion[edit | edit source]

The Artisan
I'm sure The Master of Coin was disappointed when she learned I didn't make the ledger. That's too bad.

You have done well to relay my every lesson to your artisans, whether you think of yourself as such, you are indeed the master of a trade guild.

I've taken the liberty of having a new alembic made, and a cauldronmaster's garments to boot. The alembic should serve your alchemists better than that old hand-me-down I gave you earlier, and if you're going to lead an alchemist's guild, you ought to look the part.

You've learned everything I have to teach, and The Master of Coin hasn't come around to bother me in person since the start. It's been an honor.
