miner's definitely got the shaft here. 300 extra HP at level 70 is laughable, when you are a warrior running around with 10k+ hp. Id rank them with the skinning one being the best, followed by herbalism. Mining is a distant third.

Not sure how much economy planning blizz does, but maybe part of the plan is to push more people into skinning and less into mining.... I know in my realm there's lots of miners and few skinners...

Its 300 you never had before, why would you complain about something that is a bonus?

300 health = 30 Stam (less if you assume BoK). I'd happily take a passive 30 Stam? That's like 2 epic socketed gems. I don't think my tank will be retraining (very happy with JC/LW thanks), but this isn't a negligible buff.

I see what you did there.

30 Stamina >>> 300 HP, actually. Many classes have talents to increase stamina by a certain %, then there's BoK as you mentioned, and for my bear 300 hp is about 19-20 stam before BoK. This is why bears would use a Heavy Knothide Leather kit (+10 stam) over +150 health enchant. That's also why there was so much qq about Blood Pact's change from stamina to health.300 free health is great, but it's pretty weak compared to the other 2, in my opinion.

Since when did stam kits get modified in bear form? +150hp enchant should be better than +10 stam kit on a druid.

@JDM-At least since I have ever played one. Personally observed and every gear guide for bears makes this point. Though +armor is not multiplied, +Stam always is. +6 Stats is better anyway, though.

True enough, it's an extra 300 hp we didn't have before. But when you compare that against the benefits of picking up another crafting profession (as was the impetus to giving bonuses to gathering professions), it could be considered pretty weak.Extra health is always good, it's just not 'OMG I'm so glad I drop mining after all' good.

None of them are supposed to be soo good you change classes...blizz does not want that...there is enough min maxing as it is.ITs a nice freebie, enjoy it.Also, my tank has 18k health, and 300 more is great.I have dropped a boss with 200 health left before.Every point counts.
