    Trouble with making gold

    Hey everyone I'm pretty new to being active here and I have a question I find myself having trouble making gold with alchemy. Now usually I alchemy/enchanting as professions, but I make bang with enchanting, but with alchemy I am breaking even usually or lose gold. Now is it worth after having my guy with alchemy decently high is it worth switching to something else or do you guys think the herbs market will lower?

    You're losing gold with Alchemy because you don't have any rank 3 recipes.

    Like @Gumdrops said, you need R3 recipes in alchemy. You can get away with R3 for certain recipes (enchanting for one) but alchemy is too competitive.

    It will cost you anywhere between 10-50k to get R3s discovered .

    Is it even worth doing in that case should I switch to something like tailoring?

    Entirely depends on how much gold you think you can make in the long run, also remember that if you decide to switch to tailoring, there's a similar barrier of entry there. I'd personally stick with alchemy if you can log in at least once a day.

    Thank you I stopped putting gold into it but I will focus on one of the flasks and try to get it to 3 star.
