I was wondering what peoples thoughts about flasks/elixirs/potions are?
Currently, I plan to use haste potions on boss fights and specific times during boss fights (an example would be like Evocation on Curator, or Kil'rek's weaken on Illhoof, although I don't actually use potions for those fights). I plan to use elixirs of major agility and I plan to keep it up throughout the raid, I also plan to use flasks of relentless assault on progression targets.
My REAL question would be is, should I keep them premade and lying around in my bank/inv or should I make them half an hour before a raid or something? I'm currently Engineering/Mining but I was wondering if I should drop Engineering and take Herbalism, or drop Engineering/Mining and take Alchemy/Herbalism instead? I make a good chunk of gold daily with my mote extractor and mining circuits around Nagrand, and it helps pay for my potions/elixirs/flasks.
If anyone could give me some insight on how they go about obtaining their required flasks/elixirs/potions for raiding and how they use them as far as in a raid goes, it'd be much appreciated. Also, which would be the easier road in the long run? Farming and selling/using my own mats or just keep making gold and purchasing the mats and finding an alchemist?
