Makes sense as well. You get XP from killing beasts for skins and people for their...well...clothing. I find it hard to believe all those brigands are just carrying bolts of uncut cloth, I think most tailors just wash and hem their victim's clothes.

It makes absolutely 0 sense to gain XP from mining or herbing. I love the fact that they want to give us XP and both my Cata toons will level mining as they will need to stock up for JC/Engineering. So do you get XP for fishing/cooking/first aid? What about all the people who min/max and have crafting profs. Will they get XP for every item they craft? Probably not. So no. It doesn't make sense and it is not even remotely fair to the rest of the professions. But I like it :)

Wow. look at all the reading failure. I am all for the extra XP. I make sure all my alts explore outlands and northrend to get all the extra XP they can. You can't seriously say it makes sense or is fair to any other profession though. Downrank it all you want. I plan on leveling all of my new toons (and 2-3 old ones) as miners.

Not downranking at all. I disagree that it's unfair to the other professions. Skinning, the only other gathering profession gets XP automatically if you're farming it. All the other crafting professions come with myriad other bonuses, especially when it comes to min/maxing. A little XP bonus doesn't stack up to the sheer stat and utility bonuses other professions provide.
