Eternal Fire is a necessary material in many crafting professions as you make your way through the Northrend levels. Alchemists can use Eternal Fire to transmute Scarlet Ruby (rare WotLK red gem) into Cardinal Ruby (epic WotLK red gem) which is popular with twinks due to its lack of item level restriction. Miners need Eternal Fire (along with Eternal Shadow & Earth, and 3 Titanium Bars) to smelt Titansteel Bars – a major component in Chopper mounts. You may find yourself paying a pretty penny for Eternal Fire on the AH, unless of course you use these 5 tips to get them cheaper!

If you’ve got the gold and time to farm the materials (or more gold to buy some of them) then here’s a quick checklist for obtaining a Vial of the Sands mount.
