Cataclysm Mining and Herbalism Guide

Two great things happened for those who have Mining or Herbalism (or both) as a profession as we shifted from the Wrath of the Lich King expansion to the Cataclysm expansion in World of Warcraft:
  • Gathering at an ore or herb node gives experience, which provides an alternate advancement path
  • Both Mining and Herbalism can be simultaneously tracked

It is yet to be determined whether these added benefits to gathering professions will cause the price of raw materials to reach equilibrium at a lower point, but, if you can get in on the farming during the first few months of the expansion, you ought to be able to reap decent rewards for your efforts.

Cataclysm Mining Guide

The three types of ore that you will find in the Cataclysm expansion are Obsidium Ore, Elementium Ore, and Pyrite Ore.  These correspond to Wrath of the Lich King's Cobalt Ore, Saronite Ore, and Titanium Ore.  In any of the ore nodes you can find uncommon or rare uncut jewels along with Volatile Fire, Volatile Water, and or Volatile Earth.

Cataclysm Herbalism Guide

All herb nodes in Cataclysm can produce Volatile Life. Also, there are several zone-specific herbs such as Twilight Jasmine in Twilight Highlands, Whiptail in Uldum, and Heartblossom in Deepholm. Azshara's Veil is almost unique to Vashj'ir (there are a few nodes in Mount Hyjal) and Cinderbloom is found all throughout the Cataclysm expansion zones.  The final herb, Stormvine, is found commonly in Vashj'ir and the lush areas of Mount Hyjal.
