I am an Alchemist. I still make Mythical healing Pots and I have noticed the effectivness is rather insignificant now, too.In the beginning of Cata, when health pools were not as large, a mythical healing pot could restore a useful amount of health. Now health pools are much, much larger. The hard coded amount a healing pot heals for is not enough to warrant the use.If Mythicals healed a percentage of the HP bar they would have scaled up and have remained useful. (and not have been overpowered in the beginning, too)Oh, and the same for Mana pots, too.But, the argument for blizz phasing out the use of potions all together is, look at the drop rate for Eternal Life. Even with the gatherer bonus from my guild I have a hard time herbing enough of these to make the flasks for a cauldron. I have 3 bags full of herbs! (and one on my toon) I sell herbs on the AH, I got herbs all over the freakin' place. I go 10+ herb nodes and get *maybe* 2 eternal lifes.Make a flask? Use 8 eternal life. I need 32 to make one cauldron. One evening of raiding? 2 cauldrons. (for the non-alchemists who only get the 2 hour version) That's 64 eternal life! I simply do not have the time to go farming for hours and hours before each raid.I spend as much time farming as I do raiding. Bleh. Talk about sucking the fun out of the game....
