A reagent (IPA riˈeɪdʒənt or re-ey-gents[1]) is an item that is required in order to cast a specific spell or use a specific ability. A reagent differs from a tool in that successfully using the ability/spell will consume the reagent. The use of the term comes from chemistry terminology, reactant, and items used in chemical reactions.[2] Blizzard Entertainment adopted the term to extend its use to include spells and some recipes. Reagents are generally not tradeskill or crafting ingredients (except perhaps Alchemy).

As of Patch 2.3.0, Blind no longer has a reagent requirement for Rogues.

Reagents Used by ProfessionsEdit

Some drops from mobs that are materials for tradeskill recipes are also classified as "reagents" by the game. (For example in the auction house.) This is counterintuitive, as such items would more logically be called "trade goods". Examples include Elemental Earth and Ironfeather.

Elemental DropsEdit

There are three tiers of elemental reagents. These are used by all professions for crafting and enchants. They are dropped by elementals of the corresponding type at rates of 2-10%, making them somewhat valuable.

Each tier becomes available off of mobs of progressively higher level. For example, (almost) all fire elementals can drop the lowest level item Elemental Fire. A level 50+ elemental can drop Elemental Fire, Heart of Fire, or Essence of Fire.
