The formula is dropped by Scarlet Spellbinders around Hearthglen in the Western Plaguelands and Scarlet Archmages in the cathedral in Tyr's Hand in the Eastern Plaguelands, respectively, with a drop rate of approximately 0.5%. Prior to the Burning Crusade expansion, this formula was heavily farmed.
There are only up to 9 Spellbinders at any given time (3 on the ground floor of the tower, 3 on the top and up to 3 wandering around; respawn time is about 5–7 minutes).
Spellbinders are relatively weak cold mages, no classes will have any difficulties killing them. However, most effective classes for farming are rogues (they can evade most of the ganking) and hunters/warlocks (pet in aggresive mode is the most effective tagging tool).
Farming can also be slowed by the presence of a Scarlet High Clerist at the top of the tower. This Level 63 Elite is a paladin variant and can be pulled at best with two Spellbinders, at worst three Spellbinders and Cavalier Durgen.
