One of the main things I like doing in World of Warcraft is farming for patterns and recipes that I don’t have. I am not obsessed with it, but it’s still neat to find new ones I don’t have.
Who the hell is Finklestein and why do I care?
Alchemist Finklestein is a vendor located inside Icecrown Citadel. He has several recipes for sale for various professions. I went in as a tailor for a normal farming run and went to him to clear trash from my bags. Having killed a few bosses, I had some Primordial Saronite on me. I was going to keep it, but then realized Finklestein had some patterns I needed.
That saronite, which dropped from a few bosses I had killed in ICC, was what he took as payment. After clearing my bags, I ended up buying a few of his recipes. Primordial Saronite doesn’t sell for much at all on my server so dumping them was a no-brainer.
From the looks of it, Finklestein has patterns for Tailors, Leatherworkers, and Blacksmiths with the latter getting most of the love.
*Pay no attention to Scott…unless you’re a priest.
The next time you go on an ICC run, be sure to pay Finklestein a visit for some patterns!
