Artisan's Mettle and Spark of Ingenuity Guide for Dragonflight
On this page, you will discover what the critical Spark of Dreams and Artisan's Mettle reagents do, and how to farm more of them for your end game crafts.
Spark of Dreams Purpose and Farming in Dragonflight
The Spark of Dreams is a rare reagent which serves as a time gate to Season 3 combat crafting gear in Dragonflight.
By default, items created with the Spark can go up to 463 item level, but you can add the optional reagents Enchanted Wyrm's Dreaming Crest or Enchanted Aspect's Dreaming Crest, crafted with Enchanting, in order to make them go up to 476 or 486 item level at maximum quality!
There is also Enchanted Whelpling's Dreaming Crest, which can be used on basic gear crafts such as Band of New Beginnings without a spark in order to get the gear to up to 447 item level.

|Whelpling's Dreaming Crest||Enchanted Whelpling's Dreaming Crest||LFR Amirdrassil , M+ 2 to 5, World Content||434 to 447|

If you are a crafter, you can get some for free from Thomas Bright in The Artisan´s Market area of the capital of the Dragon Isles, in Valdrakken, after you complete the short introduction quest to crafting in Dragonflight.
This handout is repeatable once per week and will reward increasing amounts of Artisan's Mettle as your reputation with the Artisan's Consortium increases, up to 110 Mettle at rank 4 and 150 at the final rank 5.
