Are you alchemists serious? You're saying the entire point of being an alchemist hinges on players having to chug 2 or 3 extra potions for each encounter? I find it funny that someone thinks herb prices are going to hit the floor when a new herb using profession is coming out.

The only people that I see against Potion Sickness are either elitists that get off trying to make things as difficult as humanly possible so that they feel better about the fact that they play the game 17 hours a day and are "hardcore" (when being hardcore doesn't require this) or alchemists that are just pissed that they won't be making 2-3k a week by listing a few pots on the AH. They might even have to switch to transmuting or making flasks, god forbid.The difficulty of an encounter should be the encounter itself, and perhaps the gear it requires. Being "inconvenient as hell" by requiring hours of farming daily beforehand does not equal a difficult encounter, it just equals another massive time sink so that some can laugh when another guild has a few people graduate school and get a job that gives them enough time to play for an hour or so before the raid itself.

Glad to see you berating Alchemists for all the complaining herbalists are doing.BTW, they're separate professions. Many alchemists buy the herbs rather than gather them so they can have a second crafting profession. Just because the two have a synergy doesn't mean that every alchemist is an herbalist. Alchemy is VERY easy to level without being an herbalist, unlike things like blacksmithing and leatherworking that require insane amounts of mats and make not taking the associated gathering profession financial suicide.

"alchemists that are just pissed that they won't be making 2-3k a week by listing a few pots on the AH"I say this to you as well: it's the HERBALISTS that are making money, not the alchemists. Alchemists that are herbalists make as much money selling raw herbs as they do pots. The reason mana pots are 25G for a 5 stack is because the herbalists are listing Dreaming Glory at 50 G a stack. We aren't going to sell you potions for less than it costs us to make them.Learn the difference between gross profit and net profit before commenting on financial matters, please.

I agree with this, as an alchemist and a herbalist. Pots were a huge and consistent money maker, but by no means would potion sickness destroy alchemy. You'd still be able to sell flasks, elixirs, and your transmute cooldown. AND potions would still sell decently, to people who are leveling (who would only need one per fight anyway) and raiders. Herbs will sell well to fuel the same, as well as for inscription. Anyone who tries to make money off of a crafting profession without the matching gathering one is ridiculous and shouldn't be complaining that the gatherers are making a lot of money off them.
