I think the game's always been stingy with potions. I find that while I'm leveling, mobs drop the kind of potion that would have been appropriate ten levels ago. In TBC, despite the increase in health, you're still reliant upon level 55 potions through most of Outland. I didn't see my first Runic Potion until I hit level 80 and Rhonin mailed them to me. I only found out about Mythical Healing Potions because I went to the Auction House looking for a level 85 potion.The scarcity can be resolved by Alchemists, but Cata potions are also severely underpowered. Given the big jump in health and stats, they really should have had a level 81 potion and a level 85 potion. If you have three Tol Barad mobs pounding on you, cloth armor, and no shielding abilities, a Mythical Healing potion will give you about one additional second to live. That's nothing compared to the mitigation provided by abilities like War Stomp, Stoneform, and Disperse.
