How to Complete Alchemist Finkelstein's Daily Quest in World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King


There are lots of daily quests in the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. If you wish to gain reputation with the Argent Crusade faction, one of their daily quests, a part of the "Troll Patrol" daily, involves assisting Alchemist Finkelstein in creating a truth serum by procuring certain items from his shelves. This can be one of the trickiest dailies in the game until you learn the secret.

  • Get the daily. Before you can even do the daily, you need to level up to at least 73, then visit the Argent Stand in Zul'Drak. Once there, you need to do a series of quests before the Troll Patrol daily opens up to you. Note that in order to get the best reward from the Troll Patrol daily, you need to complete all four mini-dailies in under 20 minutes. Doing so is extremely difficult without a flying mount.

  • Visit Alchemist Finkelstein. His lab is in a small ziggurat just northwest of the Argent Stand, amid a field of spiders and bats. Inside, you will find the Alchemist and his assistants in the center area, then two rooms full of shelves; one to the north (which we will call "Right Side") and another to the south (the "Left Side.")

  • Have a look around before you start the daily. Knowing where certain items are on the shelves is essential to completing his quest. You are required to grab certain items in a certain amount of time, then run back and throw them in Finkelstein's cauldron before the time runs out. Take note of items that only appear once, and on one side. Some examples: Blight Crystal (Left Side), Abomination Guts (Left Side), Prismatic Mojo (Left Side), Trollbane (Right Side) and Icecrown Bottled Water (Right Side.)

  • Start with the right side. Learn everything that is on the right side first. The right side contains fewer of the rare items and more of the common ones. Since he always starts out asking for common items first, you can just run to the right side immediately for the first four or five rounds. After the fourth request, wait in the middle for him to tell you what he needs. This allows you the time needed to run to either side. If you run to one side and can't find an item, you will not have enough time to run to the other and grab it before the time expires.

  • Keep at it! Don't fret if you fail the first time or even the third time. The requests are random, so the chances of getting the same series of requests two days in a row is extremely low. You will get better with practice. Note that if you have a flying mount, you can fail this quest several times and still make the 20 minute deadline. Remember, the best way to get better at this quest is simply to keep doing it.
