And like that *snap* Tatia’s an alchemist. I found Alchemy easier to level than Herbalism. Then again.. when Tatia leveled herbalism ( in October: Herbalism 375) I socked most of those flowers away in my guild-of-one bank tab. So I had most of the mats already on hand. In all I think I spent 200g between paying for training.. and buying the flowers where I was short (Why is briarthorn always so hard to get?**)
I used the quick guide here: http://www.the-best-wow-guides.com/alchemy.php .
Tatia’s currently at 342/375 Alchemy. From start to finish.. I think it took ~3-4 hours. She would be further but I ran out of Netherbloom.
**I was talking with a guildie about a completely separate topic.. and she mentioned she was making a killing selling Briarthorn on the AH. Which is nice considering her highest toon is 42. I’m pretty sure I padded her bank account.
