    Some idiot on my server posted 56 stacks of 20. he might sell 4-5 stacks, if I don't keep up on the undercuts. Selling them in groups of 8 seem to sell better than 20, since 8 is needed for flasks. Try it out and see if they sell faster.

    Yeah whiptail respawn rates are out of whack in my opinion,they're nearly instant.

    I really wish I had a high level herbalist to take advantage of this. D:

    It was definitely a needed change. Prior to the patch, it would sometimes take me 10 minutes to find 1 whiptail. I don't care if prices drop or go up. I play the game for fun, not for gold. Having the most expensive mount isn't going to make the game anymore fun for me.

    leveled my tauren druid from about halfway through 83 to 84 just farming whiptail for a couple hours last night. I wasn't closely tracking my XP/hour but i'd estimate it was at least as good if not better than questing, definitely far better than grinding mobs. I had the whole area virtually to myself though, and being a tauren druid with 310% is as good as it gets for herb grinding. I do find it hilarious how Blizzard often goes so over the top with changes like this, while acting like they do things so cautiously and incrementally. The market for Whiptail has already tanked on my realm, price down more than half already since the patch from 10g to 4g and not much sign of buyers for the endless stacks which keep appearing on the AH at this point. I sold a handful of stacks early on but holding on to the rest for now, need to level my alchemy and inscription still anyway, and planning to see what if anything Blizz does about these insane spawn rates in the coming days / weeks.

    I have farmed about 4000 herbs and a 1300 Vol Life of this atm. Will probably farm up to about 6k and take all the Vol Life I'll get in the process. Just looking at ppl desperately selling herbs for under 1/2 the price atm... pathetic. I have no problem waiting 2 months with selling them for 10 gold per herb again. Not sure what to do with the life atm. Transmute like a madman and sell Vol Air or sell life.

    And this will be fixed. It can not be intended in any way.

    And I am LOVING my Tauren Druid

    Yea, it's been a Whiptail fest in Uldum since patch. Actually quite fun.

    Well - on Proudemore went to farm a few - one thing spawning faster than the Whiptail, the herbies.

    Fighting 3-4 other herbies at each node ... half the nodes I went for got ninjaed from under me (that is - I was 70% through herbing, someone else lands and takes it off me).

    So - no herb wonderland for me.

    How on earth is that possible... if you are 70% through the herbing process, noone landing at the time can ninja it from you...

    9 stacks in 40min? Must be overfarmed in your realm then.
    I got 30 stacks in 45min and i stopped because i got bored.
    Most of the time before i mount up a nearby node spawn.
