Are mining nodes based on a timer, or nodes in the zone?
As in, does each node have a respawn timer after you mine it before it respawns, or are the nodes based upon people mining other nodes in the same zone?
I have a couple routes I camp when I want Ghost Iron ore, and on the shortest one where it used to be I mine one and the next one has respawned while I am working on the one I am mining, and it would just be a quick and easy loop... I found myself, mining all the nodes and none are respawning (This was the first month of Pandaria.)
So, how exactly do the nodes work?
