    .........

    You missed the sarcasm in his post. Why would you ever prepot a 5 man boss?

    WHOOSH (that's the sound of Blackmist's post going over your head)

    He is an alchemist. He is trying to increase the potential purchasers of his product.

    so basically i pre-pot then pof etc on my pof macro, then army so they have max stat snap-shot. if that's wrong i learnt something ty.
    aotd do very little dps/damage they didnt scale well with cata. so i would never waste the time to prepot before them, only after, also, how long does your tank give you in their countdown? if they are not, i suggest you ask your RL to have them start doing this for many reasons, pre-pots, someone realizes wrong gear spec for the fight at last second, that happens. etc. etc.

    the best way everyone should be pre-potting is at 1 sec, and i hope everyones tanks countdown every single time before the pull. our tank is always 3 seconds, unless someone asks for a longer one, then he will.

    do any of you help out your guild? i hope so, as in farm herbs on your herbal alts, our guild provides all the pots for our raiders, and doesnt require anyone to farm, but we appreciate it very much when people do and put em in the g-bank. that way you kill a boss that much faster and for progression, it can make the difference between a kill and not a kill.

    And, realistically, unless you're in a guild that can actually pull a boss on schedule, and coordinate everyone potting - it's basically a waste of a pot
    (And alot of gold.)

    I've been in so many "progression minded" guilds that would demand I pre-pot for the few seconds of extra DPS... and then take 45 seconds to pull the boss, and make you wait another 10 for the tank to "get threat" and "position the boss."
    *sigh*
    Tanks should always count down before pulling the boss (as in 4-3-2-1... for pre pots), in the event he has to wait again, just wait for the potion to come off of cooldown. You will live if you end up losing a couple coppers over this scenario. And tanks should not ever take more than a second to get threat, whereas positioning the boss can be done through dps on the vast majority of fights.
    There is also a difference between "progression-minded" guilds who continually push through hardmodes at a healthy pace, and "progression -minded" guilds who are downing heroic content the first week its available, in nothing but last tiers gear... and really those are the ones who need pre-potting to actually down the boss. Otherwise, if you are getting the boss to within a few percent of death, a dps boost is a good thing. Also, if you are lusting at the start, a pre pot can be a very nice thing...

    So you have the proper time to cast your AotD and drink your potion
