It’s a given that Mists of Pandaria are still in Beta, but, I did promise more cheat sheets on my last post about cooking. I’m not going to list every possible flask, potion or elixir here…what I will list are ones that pertain to the Healing aspect of wow. I am not a theorycrafter at all, therefore if you are looking to find best in slot sort of information, this is not the blog you are looking for.
Flasks, Potions and Elixirs
When it comes to Flasks, you’re going to want to go with which stat you need the most. If you’re having regen problems, go with Spirit! If you’re not go with Int! With Elixirs you always want to use two at a time, one Guardian and one Battle. The combo is really up to what you need stat-wise. As for potions, I generally tend to use mana potions, but there are several other options!
Flask of Falling Leaves - Increases Spirit by 1000 for 60 min.
Mats Needed: Crystal Vial, Green Tea Leaf (4), Golden Lotus
Flask of the Warm Sun - Increases Intellect by 1000 for 60 min.
Mats Needed: Crystal Vial, Silkweed (4), Golden Lotus
Elixir of Peace - Increases Spirit by 750 for 60 min. Battle Elixir.
Solid choice I would choose this if I needed more mana regeneration or if a haste elixir would adversely affect my haste numbers.
Elixir of the Rapids - Increases haste rating by 750 for 60 min. Battle Elixir.
If I did not need the Spirit elixir, I would choose this one instead
Monk’s Elixir - Increases your mastery rating by 750 for 60 min. Battle Elixir
This is the battle elixir of my choice, as currently mastery > crit for most healers
Mad Hozen Elixir - Increases critical strike rating by 750 for 60 min. Battle Elixir (note: most people don’t focus on crit for their healers, at the time of this writing, but I included it just in case)
Master Mana Potion - Restores 28500 to 31500 mana
This is the mana pot most people will carry around for everyday use, stock up on these!
Master Healing Potion - Restores 60000 health
As a healer, I don’t generally keep health potions on me, I give these to my favorite rogue!
Potion of Focus - Puts the imbiber in an elevated state of focus where they can restore up to 45000 mana over 10 sec, but they are defenseless until their focus is broken
This is my absolute FAVORITE mana regen, I carry a stack of these to use when I have a moment to regen mana while my fellow healers heal. Even if you only get to use half of it’s duration its larger than the regular mana potion!
Potion of the Jade Serpent - Increases Intellect by 4000 for 25 sec
These can be pretty good for crunch time or to prepot at the start of the fight
There you go ladies and gents! Granted, this is a list from the beta, so it could become incomplete or completely outdated very quickly. I also did not include alchemy only items!
If you would like a more complete list of what’s going on in Mist of Pandaria for Alchemy, you should check out WoWhead’s Guide. It’s pretty darn awesome!
