Why should you choose Alchemy as your profession?

Alchemy is an incredible profession in Cataclysm Classic. If you’re an Alchemist, you can mix herbs to make potions, flasks, elixirs, and other helpful stuff for yourself or to sell at the Auction House. These items are handy for taking on tough PvE challenges at the end of the expansion because they give your character a big boost. It’s a good idea to pair Alchemy with Herbalism because you’ll need lots of herbs for your potions, and gathering them yourself can be cheaper than buying them at the Auction House.

Moreover, Alchemy gives you a unique buff called Mixology, which boosts the stats and duration of your flasks and elixirs. Additionally, you’ll receive the Flask of Enhancement, which provides fewer stats than a regular flask but can be used unlimited times in arenas and rated battlegrounds. With Alchemy, you can also craft the following Stones that increase your stats and improve the effects of potions:
