#0 - 2007/11/15 12:34:38 AMI am considering scrapping 4 months worth of work levelling up alchemy. I am completely and totally disappointed with every aspect of this worthless profession. I seldom to never use potions I make, they never sell for much (I often lose money trying to AH them several times), and worst of all, potions are neither fun nor cool. There is no excitement to mixing up a mana potion.
The only cool thing about alchemy--- at least I presumed it would be--- was transmutation. This was completely neutered and rendered utterly, completely, and in all ways worthless by the 24-hour cool down for transmuting A SINGLE BAR!!!! I can not even transmute different bars. What possible good is this? Armour recipies often require 8 or more bars for each item. Who wants to wait a week while I eke out a bar a day?
I could see a 24-hour cooldown on a stack of bars, or a 1-hour cooldown per bar. 24 hours per bar is absolutely pointless. I can not believe I wasted 4 months on this.
Maybe I should have researched this a little better, but it honestly never occurred to me that this level of stupidity and asanine restrictiveness was possible from Blizzard. Do these people realize we are PAYING for this game? Do they realize that we are paying to ENJOY playing this game? I briefly considered dropping this, my primary character, altogether; jewelcrafting with me paladin alt is so much more fun than tinkering with bottles of potions and transmuting a grand total of one bar a day.
