You all -know- you want it.

With the guild closing on level 20, it may very well be worth looking into getting everyone involved in gathering all the needed materials for the super-sized cauldron. While it may seem very daunting as individuals, it's certainly possible to achieve given the concerted effort of as a large group such as Apotheosis. We're already well over a third there! This would also possibly open the door for the guild to provide flasks for the raid, even before we get the achievement completed.

Currently we need approximately 1700 flasks to reach our goal. Divided evenly among the most commonly used flasks (Which also happen to be the ones used for cauldrons), that's 430 of each. Assuming we use elixer masters, which we should, with an assumed proc-rate of 10%, we'll need to make about 400 of each flask. But consider this: How many flasks do we use per raid? 3 or 4 each. (Except Irloki, but he doesn't count.) Per raid, that's 75-100 flasks per raid day. That's 250-300 per week! If we start working on this as a guild, and stop buying flasks out of the Auction House, we'll get there pretty quickly. It'll only take us a little over one months worth of flasks to get the achievement. And then you can stop carrying around flasks in your bags. Who doesn't want that?!

Now for the nitty-gritty. 400 of each flask. 8 each of 3 materials (not counting bottles). That's 320 stacks of Whiptail, Azshara's Veil, Cinderbloom, and Twilight Jasmine. And a whopping 64 stacks of Volatile Life (Remember that one stacks up to 200). We have a fairly large number of Herbalists in the guild. We also have a fairly large amount of gold hoarders and whatnot. Everyone needs at least 3 flasks per raid. Everyone. That's what you plan on unless you like mooching off of others, or plan to not get caught by Xirony (which is fairly unlikely). If you're going to be buying them anyway, just buy mats and approach one of the Alchemists in the guild. I'm one, Hankisback is another. Winkatink, Nexvotum, Payload, Wilicia, and even Shifterror are also Alchemists. And that's just the raiders, many of us have alts, and some of those are also bound to be Alchemists. Hopefully the Elixer Masters among us will speak up and offer their services.


If you would like to contribute to the guild, be it herbs, food, volatile elements, gems, enchanting materials, metal and ore, or just gold, you should talk to an officer (keep in mind, I am -not- an officer). I've been informed that contributions to the guild are always welcome and noticed. Step up and be part of the experience.

I've been stockpiling herbs to help us get the big cauldrons. Sometime next week I'll be making about 150 of each flask. Then I'm going to bank those and use them to make big cauldrons when we can.

That's great! I wish I knew who 'Johny' is. That'll get us a lot closer. Are you an Elixer Master?

Well, I just burned through all my Eternal Life making almost 150 flasks. We're more than halfway to the achievement now. Johnny, when are you going to start massing flasks up? Need a hand making them, I'm Elixir spec'd now?



**Edit**

Just burned some more cash getting this done. About 100 more flasks. I'm 40k in, so I'm going to stop for now. Contribute, people!

Ok. I used the cash I got from Loki and Thorn, 15k from myself, and 10k from the Guild Bank (To be paid to me at a later time) to make another 300 flasks. We're now at 1965/3000. Big things I need are Twilight Jasmine and Volatile Life. Pitch in, people.

At last check, we're sitting at just over 2000 flasks made. We've come a long way, but we have just as far to go. New recruits and old alike stand to benefit from getting this complete.
Currently we need Twilight Jasmine and Volatile Life the most. (And that's unlikely to change, given the price of other herbs.)
Pitch in when you can, raiding doesn't stop when the raid is over!

Burned 20k or so to make another 85 flasks. (The expensive kind, Draconic Mind). That puts us at 2220.
Thanks go to Leo for farming some for the guild bank. With so many new members, we're starting to accelerate the process, but I'd still like to get it done ASAP. Donate mats, especially Volatile Life and Twilight Jasmine by either giving it to an officer, or dropping it in one of the mats tab of the guild bank. Gold would also be appreciated, donate that to myself or another officer, but kindly let me know that you've done so.

Remember, don't buy flasks from the AH, buy mats and have a Guild Elixir Master (Such as myself) make them.
