This is every reagent you’ll need to carry around in Burning Crusade Classic

WoW Classic and Burning Crusade Classic have their roots in tabletop roleplaying games like D&D. In that tabletop world, the Sorcerer uses a tiny ball of bat guano and sulfur to cast a Fireball; a Paladin touches his Holy Symbol to Channel Divinity. You see this reflected in earlier incarnations of World of Warcraft with consumable reagents that are required to cast certain spells. If you don’t have the reagent, you can’t cast the spell — which can turn into a real inventory management problem over the course of a long raid night.

But not every class — or even every spell — needs a reagent to cast. If you’re trying to figure out what to pack in your bags for the trip through the Dark Portal, these are all of the reagents in Burning Crusade Classic and where to get them.

Where to buy reagents

Most reagents are purchased from a reagent vendor. While many are in cities or major settlements, others are scattered about the open world.




  • Silithus
  • Winterspring
    • Vi’el is way south of the city of Winterspring near Dark Whisper Gorge.
  • Shattrah City
    • Fantei in the Lower City.
    • Amshesha Stilldark on the Scryer’s Tier. Only for characters who are aligned with the Scyers.
  • Zangarmarsh
    • Mortog Steamhead inside the entrance to Coilfang Reservoir. Requires exalted with the Cenarion Expedition.
  • Terokkar Forest
  • Caverns of Time
  • Netherstorm
  • Blade’s Edge Mountains
  • Shadowmoon Valley
    • Rumpus in the Dragonmaw Base Camp.
  • Karazhan
    • Ythyar is inside the instance, right before the Chess Event.
  • Black Temple (Burning Crusade Classic Phase 3)
    • Aluyen is inside the instance.
  • Zul’Aman (Burning Crusade Classic Phase 4)
  • Isle of Quel’Danas (Burning Crusade Classic Phase 5)
    • Kaalif is on the first floor of the Inn at Sun’s Reach Harbor.

Where to farm reagent drops

While you’ll purchase the vast majority of your reagents from vendor, some reagents are drops. When you run low, you either need to go out farming for them or buy them on the Auction House.

  • Light feathers drop from Harpies and birds.
  • Shiny Fish Scales drop from various water creatures.
  • Fish Oil drops from Naga and Murlocs. The Underbog 5-man dungeon in Coilfang Reservoir in Zangermarsh has many mobs that will drop both Shiny Fish Scales and Fish Oil.
  • Soul Shards are generated by Warlock’s Drain Life spell. They only come from relevant mobs — those that would give the Warlock experience or honor.

Spells that require reagents

The vast majority of these spells that require reagents are “greater” versions of buffs you can cast without the reagent. They typically have longer durations and affect more players. so they’re just what you want for dungeon-diving. It’s a good idea to have a stack or two of the relevant reagents for your class when you’re running dungeons or raids. But not all of the original TBC reagents will be in Burning Crusade Classic: Blind’s reagent requirement for Rogues was removed in 2.3 so we won’t see that in BCC.

Side node: Can we please stop referring to the lesser versions of these buffs (the ones with a shorter duration that don’t require reagents) as ‘ghetto buffs’. The term is offensive and we need to purge it from the lexicon.
