I used to wonder if I should drop Alchemy and Herbalism form my Warrior in favor of mining and Blacksmithing.Endless potions and lifeblood have made sticking with it worth it. :)

The best thing about the alchemy bonus I find is the savings it makes. Having double length flasks is awesome. I raid 2 hours five days a week, that's 5 flasks I get saved each week or 150g, not to mention I'm elixir specced so sometimes flasks get even cheaper and you get a really cool transmute each day for another 100g.I'm sure other professions can make more money by selling their goods or whatnot but if you're lazy I think alchemy is a great profession, 700G a week and half price flasks are nothing to sneeze at.

I'm lazy too and very pleased with the Alchemy/Inscription combo. Neither trade is particularly exciting, but both are easy to level. Alchemy saves tons of gold with the extended flask durations, and Inscription saved me from having to grind Sons of Hodir rep.

Pemberton, Good lord if you are tanking do not drop herbalism. First off when you use flasks you don't have to buy the frost lotus which save a good bit of gold. That health boost from lifeblood is not anything to sneeze at. You have a free HOT to drop on yourself that might give your healer enough time to heal you and someone else that gets wacked. Anything that makes life easier on my healers and saves me gold is a must in my book

Go Blacksmithing and Jewelcrafting if you must switch professions. The net benefit is higher than anything with mining.I would hope, however, that you have a miner alt to feed you materials.
