Yes, Alchemy and Inscription are in the same boat. And it's bad design for them too. Let me be more specific. It's not bad design. It's great design, IF AND ONLY IF all the other professions have th same limitations. Blacksmithing, Leatherworking, Tailoring, and Enchanting all have no limitation on how fast you can get new recipes short of gold.Blacksmiths with lots of cash hit 450 on day one and had EVERY available recipe. Ditto leatherworkers. Ditto enchanters and tailors, although the two patterns mentioned earlier took a few days to get, but only because you had to level to 80 first. After that it could all be done in a day or two if you pushed yourself. The only limit was on the player's time.Jewelcrafting, Inscription, and Alchemy all have ARTIFICIAL time limits put on them. This is great in theory, but NOT when the other professions don't have the same issue. Jewelcrafting is the most common QQ because they are the most frequently changed items, and because there are SO many more patterns to obtain.The time limit placed on these professions is GREAT for each profession's cash flow, and is an awesome mechanic, but it should have been applied to every profession. If COOKING requires a daily to be able to cook something that makes squirrels follow you around, Blacksmiths should have to do dailies to be able to make all this crazy good epic gear.
