did a little homework, googled a couple guides, did a quick crosscheck between them and everything seemed hunky dory. accumulated 95% of the mats and then my patience ran out.
flew myself to the scryers' tier to get down to business and then realized that the guides i looked at were BUNK!
it's like i was looking at the auction hawk's wishlist for alchemy powerleveling shopping list. as in, pick the most expensive old world herbs and advise people to go 5 to 10 points deep into yellow and you know what? eke out 5 more points at green with that briarthorn there, buddy.
so yeah... if you're looking to get some professions up before cata hits, double check the guide against the profession lists here at alla or wowhead before you start accumulating mats.
PROTIP: allies can make rounds of loch modan gathering the aforementioned briarthorn while checking the vendor waaaaaay off in the corner of the zone for a limited supply recipe that will let you skip a stack's worth of the godforsaken briarthorn. hordies can buy it at the crossroads.
best of luck to y'all, and hawks i hope to mete out some meager revenge in the next couple weeks.
