I'm all for it. I'm currently leveling mining and herbalism on my Death Knight. You can only get one skill point for a given node, so I'd rather consume the whole node in one hit so it's available again during my next pass.
26reverse - On the contrary - having to hack the same node 4 or 5 times achieves nothing. THis change ahs been too long coming.in terms of racial mounts - I think you've misunderstood. All they've done is stopped certain mounts from being unrideable: eg, now any alliance race can earn rep with Gnomergan Exiles to get a mechanostrider. On the past you could ONLY have a mechanostrider as a dwarf or gnome as other races were considered too big. They're not handing out foreign mounts suddenly.
Rofl @ RP servers. IMO Blizzard only put those servers in to serve the whining of a smaller player base. I think this new update is a long awaited one for us miners."Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work we go"
my one problem is competition...lets say i was mining something just dismounted tried to mine to lvl up and boom....i mess up..so i try again..then hey look some other guy wants in...well i was there first was i not? well now if i can mine it quicker he can boom snatch it from me I get no chance to lvl...well i also i dont like the fact of all the competition...I try to mine and now i get 2 peeps on a titanium fight...no fun..no fun..:( hope it works...
You could always share skillups from the same node with other herbalists as long as you only opened the loot window, without actually taking the herbs. I'm sure the same will work with ore, but it will certainly be a lot more difficult to split the actual loot from the node between multiple miners now. Personally, I run into those situations very rarely, so I'm looking forward to leveling mining on my low-level alts.
