No, there isn't. It looks like there is on your end. The action of herbing makes you dismount, and that action is registered server-side, not client side. When you see yourself dismount, you have already dismounted a "split second" beforehand and begun to herb. The action of herbing is the cause of the dismount, and begins simultaneously on the server end.If the bird "swooped down and took it before you could dismount", then so would any other flying character in his position. Once you start herbing, no-one else can take the node. He beat you to it and your lag possibly made you see it otherwise.
You do know it takes a split second before you start herbing off a mount. It dismounts and you start. The druid did not have to dismount so if we got to it at the same time his flight form gave him a edge.
Man common sense is missing in this day and age.
Which is very relevant to this thread, because herbing parties are all the rage.Then why not make a druid to farm herbs? Also..yeah i was there in BC and that whole "jack of all trades and master of none" stuff sucked...badly. Because we could do a lot of stuff...it was never good to be brought for dungeons and raids. I was so happy when blizzard moved to the whole "bring the player not the class".
also in case this turns into the usual "nerf flight form" stuff...nerf crusader first and then i'll be willing to listen.
it was nerfed, its not longer party wide.
