I noticed that there seems to be the same number of players close to the farms and one place I knew that always had a few spawns of green tea leaf was on the location of "the heartland" where I use to enjoy fighting those fast hopping rabbits for those herbs.
As it seems now is has not been a spawn there for more than 20 mins, I guess Blizzards wants those fast hopping rabbits left alone.

This seems pretty backwards. It gives bots an even bigger edge while preventing honest players from being able to gather mats to level their professions.

Next they'll probably just remove Halls of Lightning from the game.
Seems logical. Make a change that negatively affects every single player in the entire game, so that the illegal botters won't make quite as much profit. *sigh*
And sadly, has been the response from Blizzard on past occasions as well.
Make a change in the game that impacts all the legitimate players so that the people doing it legitimately are punished along with the bots.

^^^^^ THIS a thousand times THIS !!
Bots will now get the herbs and the rest of us suffer.
Backwards thinking is causing very dumb choices to be made that support the cheats and punish the honest players.
This will make it harder for honest people to make ANY money. More promoting goldsellers?
THe 'solutions' they have come up with support the cheats and hurt the honest people. 'Gold sinks"? Why? average players do not have that much gold so you helped those that cheat. Nerf spawn rates? Only helps those that use sheat programs that tell them when and where nodes are so their bots can get them as soon as they spawn.
Block or ban botters. Many say in forums how they report them but the bots stay. It feels more like you support the cheats/goldsellers/bots and don't care how the average player feels in seeing these cheats get all the 'Firsts' gold and unique things in game well before a simple player.
Stop hurting the average player under the guise of 'dealing with' cheats without thinking through how the 'fix' impacts the average player.

Everyone is screwed except for the botters, who will undoubtedly adapt to the situation or come up with some other scheme of making gold (See HoL). This will only be successful in combating players leveling up their professions. Perhaps that is what blizzard is trying to do? It awfully seems like they want to slow progression as much as possible, so why not put a huge hamper on one of the fastest ways to get gear and items? (Gold Grinding)
