Water Spirit drop rate?

90 Draenei Monk

Alright, I've got nowhere asking in general nor the professions forum, and I'm not sure where else since Google brings nothing up.

This character is a Mistweaver monk. Herbalism/Inscription.

Started herbing up in Pandaria.. all I'm getting are Life Spirits, one of the two uncommon drops from herbs:
Life Spirit

What I'm curious about is the Water Spirit:
Water Spirit

They are *not* dropping. At all.

My Elemental shaman has a stack of these already. And she's used a few. She's also slightly lower level than Resh here.

I'm curious as to if there's some kind of issue here where it's spec related, or just the class, or what.

I understand they're supposed to be uncommon, more so than the Life Spirits, but holy crap I've picked enough herbs to make my eyes bleed and have yet to see a single one.

I'm about convinced something's up.

Early morning bump for the bug report folks, not that I expect feedback, but I'd appreciate it.

Some quick polling in my guild has confirmed this.

Mages, Druids, Priests ... all classes with mana seem to get Water Spirits and Life Spirits.

Classes without mana seem to only get Life Spirits, which makes sense, but Monks seem to incorrectly be flagged in the "no mana" group.

Uppity for viewage and question of anyone else notice this?

Class specific bugs suck.

Adding my voice to this. I thought maybe it was because I quested *and thus herbed) largely as WindWalker, but even when I switch specs to Mistweaver and herb I still don't get these as drops.

Herbalism is a weak trade skill with the haste buff alone. This really needs to be fixed for the profession to feel "viable" to me.

I had this same experience as a Windwalker questing monk. Even in Mistweaver spec, I have found zero Water Spirits.

Same thing with my monk. Already seen water spirits on other herbalists, but never on my max herbalism 90 monk.

Yes, I am a mistweaver.
