    I agree it might be nice to get more per click...

    But, ah, we'll see what live looks like.

    It should scale on level. At 450 if I "herb" a Peacebloom I should get the max available every time. Same with mining. Of course place a cap so even at 450 I wont get the max unless of course enchantments etc come into effect pushing me over the norm.

    I'm surprised you didn't bother to read the rest of the replies...

    Fun times.


    Anyway, moongleam:
    You could still both get you skillpoints. The first one to mine just doesn't take any item. If the skill-up-mechanic won't change he'll get his skillpoint without looting.
    Edit: DrJones, you're too fast.
    lulz?

    Best moneymaker? Jewelcrafting. Not for actually crafting anything but you do the daily and buy one dragonesye. Sell that puppy for 400g easy. Making a killing doing this and it saves me from having to do the terrible dailys.

    Well, people thought the original brilliant glass for JCers would lower the price of gems and it didnt..at least not on my server.

    I kind of doubt that this change to mining will lower the price at all. It may at first but I doubt it will over the long term. If respawn node times stay the way they are, there is still a finite supply of ore that can be gathered up at a time. Other people are going to be competing. In fact, this may make it harder for other miners to compete during peak farming times and prices could go up since it will be easier for a person to go around and get ore quicker and cut out competition. Its really hard to say.

    Personally, I like the current way, HOWEVER, they should make it "After tapping a node, no one else may attempt to mine from it for 30 seconds after your last attempt." To prevent people from stealing it.

    -.-;

    Come on why would the prices drop ? you get ore faster ? no... not really.. Currently all thats holding me back in veins respawning.. This just gives me more wait time = more boring.
    I predict the opposit.. People getting bored with mining cause they have 310% mounts flying around Sholazar and all of a sudden there isnt that many veins cause everyone gets it faster and they stop..

    Dont see why in hell prices would do anything but increase by this.. Only good thing about this is that atleast you aint gonna spend 10 mins mining some stupid rich saronite vein.. Giving all the hordes kekadins time to find you and gank you..

    A 4 year wish of mine finally come true. The only negative is that you can't kill opposing factions (on pvp) and steal the rest of their ore anymore, but I can live with that.

    I said it's a good moneymaker, I never claimed it's the best

    Seriously dude, as already pointed out ... there were 4 posts prior to yours saying exactly that ... way to point out your lack of forum reading skills.

    You answered your own question kinda. Sorry this WILL produce more ore/bars in the public. More (most of the time) means price competition, price competition means lower prices.

    Why? Well more people will mine because it now seems "easier/quicker".

    Yea was a tad bit annoying back in TBC days a high level with a flyer just swoops in and K.O.'s ya. Then they just mine your node over your dead corpse all because you needed more swings on that damn node. lol :'(.

    Re: One shot Mining

    I like it, I think. It is annoying when people try to steal your node (both opposite and your OWN faction) after you have cleared the mobs around it. I will leave and go find my own node if I see someone doing this, but its very annoying when people stand there waiting for you to aggro so they can ninja the node but forgetting you have a pet. This should help reduce that.

    YES! Thank you blizzard. Great change.

    Re: One shot Mining

    TBH I rather enjoyed stealing nodes after killing hordes. It is nice that your faction can't gank your nodes anymore though. Will be interesting to see if they adjust node spawn times.

    Oh sweet, wonderful Blizzard!

    /weeps for joy

    My biggest pet peeve in the game is jerkbags who try to steal Nodes from you. Honest to god, I've had people stand there and wait for me to loot a Saronite Node (not Titanium, not even Rich Saronite) for up to 10 minutes. It's a Saronite Node you tools! Go hit one of the three hundred other nodes in SB and stop trying to steal the one I got to first that I've already struck at least once. Honestly, what the hell is wrong with people?

    WTB 3.0.8 next Tuesday.
