"Extra Herbalism skill doesn't cause more herbs to come from a plant or anything like that, either."Yeah, well it should! Its kinda stupid that a max level herbalist still only extracts a single goldclover from what seems to be a huge patch of them. What? Does your character trample all but one of them?I figure the reason low level herbalists fail is because they somehow didn't do it properly, but as you become more deft at extracting herbs you should get more from the lower level plants.This also helps counteract the fact that once you're lvl 80 you don't really visit most of the lower level zones anymore, but you still need the herbs from those zones to make pots. Even some of the most advanced pots (like flasks) still require goldclover. If you were to get 4-6 goldcover from a node instead of just 1-3 it would counteract the fact that you just don't run into it while you're mopping up the final quests in Icecrown and Storm Peaks.

Maybe 'one' goldclover isn't a single piece of clover.Perhaps the problem is in the perception. It might be that when you have 'one' unit of goldclover, you've really got a big handful, and that a big handful is the smallest usable amount of goldclover that can be useful for anything.I always thought of herbs as being measured in ounces or something. It made me feel better for only picking a single usable 'ounce' of a plant instead of a single leaf from an entire bush.

I've pulled as many as 3 "ounces" of goldclover and 2 dead nettles from a single patch of goldclover.
