A  [Major Healing Potion] in the TCG.

Vials are a type of crafting reagent that can be purchased mostly from trade goods vendors and alchemy suppliers.


Vials' primary use is in alchemy; they're needed for a large number of alchemical recipes, including recipes for potions, elixirs, flasks, and oils.

The enchanting profession uses vials in recipes for wizard oils and mana oils.

In Classic, rogues use vials to create poisons.

  • A number of non-reagent vials (and phials) also exist. Most of these are quest items.

Patch changes

  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Alchemy recipes now require  [Crystal Vial]s. Deathwing broke all the others because he's mean (or because he didn't want alchemists to carry 5 different vials around with them).
  • Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.0.2 (2008-10-14): No longer used to craft poisons.
