Potions of Luck

Professions
Is it just me or does anyone else think that the mats required to make this are a bit high?

3 Golden Lotus to make 1 potion that only last an hour?

i understand that the potion is great for farming and i use them but i am just curious as to why the mats to make them are so high. These potions are eating through my Spirits of Harmony at this rate i am gonna end up using all of my spirits to make these potions.
If you can get 1 spirit of harmony + drops from one potion of luck, you've made profit. if not, you lost profit.

Pretty simple. Though the bags could use a bit higher droprate.

Basically this.
I was farming up some windwool cloth and figured i'd use the potion of luck. Spent 1800g on making it (golden lotus at 600 ea) and went as hardcore farming mode as possible.
Got about 10 chest drops, no motes of harmony, 2 stacks of cloth, 14 white/dark ore or whatever.
500 cloth an hour without the potion, about 540 with. Unless my RNG was wayyyy low, it's not really worth the cost till those golden lotus' come down in price.
potion of luck is a total ripoff. granted, i only spent time farming the lotuses with my herbist, but i farmed the full hour and got 3 chests, 6 or so motes, and about 5 trash greens.

crazy to think that i could have gotten at least 800g by selling the lotuses or selling the pot to some unsuspecting soul.
make it require about 4-5 herb's with various amount's. that worked fine for cata. the lotus system doesn't exactly work maybe for flask's though.
If it made lotus easier to find for an hour and you could recoop that would be alright, but I agree with everyone here - cost > reward.

On a side note...I'm making a killing selling my lotus and living steel ;)
weird every time i use the potion of luck and farm for an hour i seem to get well over 20 motes = 2+ spirits along with a boe blue drop every time not to mention countless greens totaling over 150G in vendor value.... maybe you guys are not farming the right spots....
You Aren't kidding when i farm with the potion of luck i end up with about 2.8k in stuff in a hour

Well, yeah 7 months later the economy and amount people spend on your stuff is more.

Thread necro is bad, ne?

(But thanks for the reminder to feed these potions on my leveling chars).
