Personally as a lvl 80 450 miner I like it, but have heard complaints. Some thoughts:1. Mining is the hardest of the 3 gathering professions to level, this will help a bit (though there's still that gap in the mid 200s that requires gold and other hard-to-find nodes and you can't smelt all the way through it).2. Mining is the most lucrative b/c it supplies 3 professions, vs 2 (herb) or 1 (skin). So its increased leveling and farming time was the compensation for that. Does removing that time unbalance it?3. This could be a problem for lowbies as high-levels run around training mining by hitting each node just once for the skill point. Previously most of the node was still left for the lowbies to scavenge and sell for much-needed gold, but now the entire node will get used up. On high-pop servers this could noticeably reduce ore availability to lowbies, unless the respawn timer correlates with the pace at which ore is mined.
Has anyone else noticed the crazy increased drop rate for gems?
Oh I see..I just rly hate anything that looks like a complaint ...If youre gunna whine about what blizz does THEN STOP PLAYING...Ty
