A Purple Smoke Flare

The Purple Smoke Flare item is a pyrotechnic device used primarily to mark a location by placing a purple smoke column object on the terrain.

Some uses that people have come up with:

  • marking locations for raids
  • smoke bomb the Flag Rooms in the Warsong Gulch battleground
  • props for floor shows and fashion shows


This item is crafted with Engineering (335); taught by  [Schematic: Purple Smoke Flare], a world drop.

Materials required:
Inv misc ammo gunpowder 07.png 1x [Elemental Blasting Powder] Inv fabric netherweave.png 1x [Netherweave Cloth]
Inv potion 02.png 1x [Purple Dye]


The Smoke Flares are cheap recipes for increasing engineering skill from 335, however, the White Smoke Flare is the cheapest, lacking a dye, and the White Smoke Flare schematic is the most readily available.

Unlike the Hunter [Flare] ability, Smoke Flares do not influence [Stealth] detection.
