    Alchemy Mount

    I wanted to post this really quick before work, but most of us know about the new mount via Alchemy that they will be introducing in Cataclysm. MMO Champion

    This is entirely speculation at this point, but the fact that Alchemists will be able to craft a two-person mount will generate massive popularity, and I'm willing to bet that a LOT of people will be re-rolling Alchemy. In fact, I'm willing enough to bet on this that I will be investing twice as much as I was into mid to high level herbs for those leveling up Alchemy.

    Leveling Herbalism does not provide you with enough materials to level Alchemy at the same time (if you are power-leveling), therefore many many people will be visiting the Auction House for those herbs.

    Vendor Recipes also necessary to level:
    - Super Mana Potion
    - Philosopher's Stone

    Yes and no... The mount is the new Chopper gold sink... except anyone who wants it will have to level Alchemy. One of the ingredients you need for Vial of The Sands is 6 Sands Of Time.. Which are sold by a vendor in Uldum for 3k a piece so on top of everything else your giving 24k to a Vendor. Not saying you will not see an increase in people leveling Alchemy thinking about getting this mount. I just doubt the number of people will be high at first. There may be reason to look into your suggestion as a possiblity toward the end of the first raid Tier.

    That said Low level mats will be selling well across the board I just don't think this Mount will attribute to Alchemy mats becoming worth more Profit wise then other low level mats.
    Not all treasure is silver and gold but it can be sold for silver, gold, and a little copper.

    I Has Stuffs and you can too

    That's an instant cast flight for any class and will indeed be a game changer, especially for PVP realms.

    That's a really good point Dizzy, thanks. I could definitely see it not really being that popular until the masses know what it's all about, and have the money to drop into it, similar to the Chopper/Mammoth at the start of Wotlk.

    I'm adding the mats list to this new time and gold sink for all.

    • 1 x Pyrium-Laced Crystalline Vial (5k from vendor)
    • 8 x Sands of Time (750g sell-price x 4 = 3000g buy-price)
    ===== 3000 each x 8 = 24,000g (unconfirmed)
    • 12 x Truegold
    ===== (5 x Pyrium bars) x 12 = 60 Pyrium Bars
    ========== (2 x Pyrite Ore) x 60 = 120 Pyrium Ore
    ========== (10 x Volatile Air) x 12 = 120 Volatile Air
    • 8 x Flask of the Winds
    ===== (6 x Volatile Life) x 8 = 48 Volatile Life
    ===== (12 x Azshara’s Veil) x 8 = 96 Azshara’s Veil
    ===== (12 x Whiptail) x 8 = 96 Whiptail
    ===== (1 x Crystal Vial) x 8 = 8 Crystal Vial
    • 8 x Flask of Titanic Strength
    ===== (6 x Volatile Life) x 8 = 48 Volatile Life
    ===== (12 x Cinderbloom) x 8 = 96 Cinderbloom
    ===== (12 x Whiptail) x 8 = 96 Whiptail
    ===== (1 x Crystal Vial) x 8 = 8 Crystal Vial
    • 8 x Deepstone Oil
    ===== (1 x Albino Cavefish) x 8 = 8 Albino Cavefish

    Total:
    • 29,000g
    • 120 Pyrium Ore
    • 120 Volatile Air
    • 96 Volatile Life
    • 96 Azshara’s Veil
    • 96 Cinderbloom
    • 192 Whiptail
    • 16 Crystal Vial
    • 8 Albino Cavefish

    And then add Kaliope's Alchemy Guide Alchemy powerleveing guide found here. Alchemist probably need level 85 to be able to access the zone (Uldum maybe?... since NPC not located yet) with no level requirement to purchase Recipe: Vials of the Sands.

    Not a trivial task for getting a profession specific mount. Yes it is special. considering that the hog mount is 2 seater and the 2-version mammoth mount is 3 seater but ground only. Guess being somebody else's epic mount is special. :P

    Just a note that the Deepstone Oil is a 1-2 per fish. So it could take as few as 4 Albino Cavefish. However, the Cavefish should be the least of your worries.

    Do you mean there is no 1.5 sec cast time for this - you hit a button, and you're flying? Almost as good for farming as the Druid's flight form? ;-)

    Complete noob moment, never mind. For some reason I read that as a trinket and the "on use" part is what would have been instant. I think I read the trinket below, thought it was neat, then read the Mount above, then just amalgamated them.
