An Arcanite Bar is a rare metal used in many level 60 recipes. Not only is it a component to making many items, but it is also needed to create Elementium.

This grayish metal looks dull even when tempered, but it holds a keener edge than any other metal on Azeroth. Arcanite is extremely flexible and can be worked into a springy armor that turns aside the mightiest blows. Only weapons, armor, and shields normally made of metal can be fashioned from arcanite; a warblade can be made of arcanite, but a tauren totem cannot.[1]


This item is created by Alchemists using the Transmute: Arcanite ability which requires a skill level of 275 and a [Philosopher's Stone]. The recipe can be learned from Alchemist Pestlezugg in Gadgetzan. NOTE! Transmuting Arcanite won't trigger the shared cooldown.
