Potion of Treasure Finding
In Cataclysm, Alchemists will be able to craft a rather interesting new potion. The Potion of Treasure Finding allows the imbimber to sometimes find extra treasure from monsters in the new Cataclysm zones of Mount Hyjal, Vash'jir, Deepholm, Twilight Highlands and Uldum. This effect lasts a full hour, persists through death (like flasks), and is not limited to the alchemy profession. Any level 80+ character can use this potion of treasure finding. The extra treasures come in the way of allowing mobs to drop a Tiny Treasure Chest.
Tiny Treasure Chests
The Tiny Treasure Chests on average were dropping 3-5 Gold, had a 75% chance to contain 8-15 Embersilk Cloth, and a 15% chance to contain a single volatile element. Extra Embersilk Cloth and volatile elements will be an excellent find for anyone out grinding mobs or killing for quests.
Will Potion Of Treasure Finding Be Profitable?
In the first weeks, all items are going to be ridiculously priced to craft just because of the horribly inflated prices we will see on the auction house. Once the market settles down and prices on herbs are reasonable, then we can look at more accurate data as far as the return on investment in using these potions of treasure finding while grinding or farming. I would expect these to be much more valuable to any of the heavy dps classes that can ramp up their kills per hour ratio. The potion of treasure finding lasts for a full hour so the more mobs you can kill within that hour, the more chances you have of finding a tiny treasure chest, thus increasing the potential of this potion. If I was grinding specific mobs for a certian drop, I would definately try one of these potions out.
Requirements To Craft:
