You will get more avoidance from the elixirs but more HP from the flask. For Archimonde, the elixirs probably win.
Option 2 is available to you even in conjunction with 1 or 3.
What is best to use on boss fights (like Archimonde)?
1. Major Fort Pot + Major Agility Elixir. Elixir of Major Fortitude - Item - World of Warcraft Elixir of Major Agility - Item - World of Warcraft
2. Chainchugging Ironshield Pots every 2 minutes. Ironshield Potion - Item - World of Warcraft
3. Flask of Fortification. Flask of Fortification - Item - World of Warcraft
use flasks for progression - sure its gets less of an edge but it means that you spend less money on consumables.
you should always chug [item]Ironshield Potion[/item]
if you insist on using elixirs, use:
battle: [item]Elixir of Major Agility[/item]
guardian: [item]Elixir of Major Defense[/item]

if you just start on working on Archi you probably will wipe 80+ times, till you get your firstkill - at least we needed that many trys - so a flask will safe you quite a lot cash compared to elixirs
Chainpotting ironshields allways helps, till you have encounters on farm or start overgearing the content that you raid...
Chain-chugging ironshields progression bosses is policy where I'm at, and on a fight like archimonde, it can be a huge difference in damage taken. That + flask is usually what I wind up with for most progression, though agi + def is a good combination when you're nearing your first kill.
