My only beef with this is that it didn't come *before* I leveled mining from scratch on my newfound DK. Other than that - YAY!
As a fellow miner, on two characters, which I've hated mining as they've wasted time, Woot!Are you going to raise mining above 275 now mal?And regarding your concern of:
Well that doesn't help you if you're just trying to level your Blacksmithing. :P
Previously wasn't it possible to get more than 1 skill point from tapping a node multiple times? I would think that yes this would nix out node-jumping, but... i think it'll slow your skill raising, wouldn't it? ...I don't mine. >.<
The problem IMO was never so much that you had to hit a node multiple times, but that after taking out a chance to skill up on each hit (a long, long time ago) they never made more nodes spawn.I've leveled all the gathering professions and it is no secret that mining is by far the most arduous to do. Skinning of course you can just farm mobs, and you can't take 5 steps in the game without tripping over a flower to pick.So while this is a welcome change, it's not quite the one I was looking for.
I've really never had a problem with mining except getting the points for mithril and thorium - geez those suck. I goto the Wetlands and more or less skip iron by getting that alliance quest ore and smelting now gives extra points so if you time it well enough and use Highlanders forum guides it's pretty simple :)Oh well back to circuits of Tanaris on my warrior *sigh*
omfg thats....huge, that will also stop the node stealers who liked to jump on your node just as you get there
IMO this hurts Jewelcrafting a bit... When you had to hit the node multiple times, each time was a chance for a gem gain. Now you have one shot at getting a gem/some gems. Blizz probably saw this coming though, I wonder how they are compensating.
FYI : You cant get multiple levels for mining from one node, its impossible, so this doesnt hurt your leveling
Can't say I've ever seen that behaviour, elstor.
