I liked that you touched on the fact that farmed mats aren't free. I recently tried to explain this to one of my guild mates a couple of weeks ago when she wondered why I was buying flasks for my raids instead of making them myself (my main is an alchemist). On my realm Lichbloom runs about 80 gold a stack, while flasks normally run around 15 gold each. I tried to explain to her that you were losing money if you were farming Lichbloom and crafting them instead of selling the herbs themselves. I still don't think she understands the concept as she still makes flasks with farmed mats and sells them in the auction house. There are many crafted items that sell for far less than what you would get if you just sold the mats that you farmed, mainly because the crafters that farm their mats sell their products thinking they saved tons of gold by farming.
