I would like to take this oppurtunity to discuss some obvious issues with the new spawn rate of herbs. First I would like to say that in terms of Alchemy you have greatly balanced the ability to make flasks! Gratz on this. However... I would like to point out that you have almost killed inscription. One of the main benefits to inscription are darkmoon cards. Considering that it takes 10 starlight inks and the drop rate on misty pigment can barely be relied upon lets assume for every 8 stacks of herbs you can get 10 starlight ink(with turning in inks for starlight ink.
Now... after spending an entire hour farming herbs all over dread waste and kunlai summit i have amassed only 10-12 stacks of herbs. Unfortunately I can't play all day. You are asking us inscriptionists in order to make money using darkmoon cards/weapons to spend all day farming herbs. That would be great if I didn't have dailies left to do on this toon. Even after dailies we will have to spend a significant amount of time farming just to make money. I appreciate you trying to balance the prices, but it seems of all the professions inscription has been hurt the most in terms of farming etc. We already have to deal with a daily cd.
I Do agree that dropping the spawn rate from 5.0.5 was a great idea but I think you guys dropped it way too much. You are encouraging botters as it is the only way i can see people like me getting a significant amount of farm in since I only have about 2-4 hours a night and most of that is raiding.
I am sure that many people, not just inscriptionists feel the same way. Feel free to add your insight to this post or make your own :p
