Alchemy Items Adjustments - Oct. 1
Alchemy is getting a few fixes tonight. At max rank:

With a hotfix that we're making to the game today, several changes to Alchemy items will take place:

  • The ratio of ingredients for Battle Potion of Agility has been adjusted so that the demand for Siren’s Pollen and Riverbud are more closely aligned in the long term.
  • The costs of creating Potions of Rising Death and Potions of Bursting Blood have been reduced. Since these potions have non-stat effects, it has been difficult to judge whether or not you should use them instead of stat potions. In practice, both contribute a similar amount of damage, but these potions are more constrained, since they are direct damage. We’re reducing their costs to make the decision of whether to use them or not more of a question of economics, rather than a question of straight throughput. The goal is for these potions to provide most of the effectiveness of a Battle Potion, at a lower cost.
  • To complement these changes, we're reducing the minimum range required for the Potion of Rising Death’s damage effect to reach full value. It will now be a 20-yard range (it was 30 yards).

In the next major content patch, Tides of Vengeance, we’re going to update the Potion of Rising Death tooltip to read “damaging ranged abilities” instead of “ranged attacks”, to make it more clear this potion is functional for casters.

These hotfixes should go live very soon, over the next hour or two, and we'll have them noted in our hotfixes blog post later this evening.

Patch 8.1 Class Changes

Keep in mind this is still super early info! If the team is committed to making class reworks due to mechanical issues that Shamans, Prot Warriors, Shadow Priests, and (insert your class here) are asking for, then those take a little longer and start coming in later during PTR.

Not saying anything specifically is coming but I know the team has been looking into mechanical issues with class rotations and functionality that have been raised and this is a current goal within 8.1. Just saying this to be as transparent as possible as all that has been seen is just numbers, and that doesn't fully represent what the team is working toward.

TL;DR: more soon™ hopefully™

Hopefully? Is that a "Hopefully I'll have more soon!" or a "Hopefully they'll actually get around to fixing classes in this patch."?
Little of column A, little of column B, but I'd reword the second part a little if it was my words of course.

I say that just because you never know in development. There could be a unforeseen thing that pops up and delays this effort, so just throwing it in to cover all the bases.

    So Battle Potion of Agi is now ask for 8 Pollen and 10 Riverbud (it's was 10 Pollen and 8 Riverbud). The Battle Potion of Int is still 10 Pollen and 8 Riverbud.

    shit changes wont change anything, what we really needed is mat reduction for the battle pots, these changes literally screw over all bar melee and we still wont be able to use rising death despite the rewording proberly

    Now all they need to do is buff the rising death potion to actually make it worth using.

    Added some specific cost examples. Hopefully that helps!

    So the damage proc potions still cost like 200-300g each which is way too much to pop on every other trash pull on mythic+. Luckily I still have like 3000 prolonged powers left.

    It's absolutely laughable, once again, they're disconnected from reality.

    It's better than nothing (and free).

    But I'm not paying 300g for anything that I'm popping every other minute or so. We need a cheap affordable potion for mythic+'s like prolonged power was in Legion.

    Oh that blue post is grand.

    "Yeah, we're working on stuff. We might come up with reworks in 8.1."

    Nice clickbait title.

    "Class Changes" = confirmation that there will be class changes. Spot-on reporting.
