A few notes from my own beta experiences:- yes, elementium veins drop elementium ore (at least they did last week). In fact, elementium ore is much easier to get than obsidium (similar to how saronite is easier to farm than cobalt)- volatile shadow used to be an ingredient earlier on but was phased out a few patches ago; it is no longer used as ingredient and the volatile shadows I had turned into gray items as vendor fodder. I guess blizzard decided there were too many types of volatiles already, and volatile shadows drew the short straw...- if herbalists only get volatile life but miners get a variety of volatiles, doesn't that set up for a relative overflow of volatile life? Answer: alchemists can once per day transmute 15 volatile lifes into a random other volatile (you will get 14-16 of the other volatile)- it is now not just miners and herbalists getting volatiles, skinners will occasionally skin a bladder that contains some random volatiles as well. The rate at which this gives you volatiles is far lower than miners and herbalists though.- and engineers join the fun as well, although in a very different way then before, and only if their second tradeskill is a gathering skill: they can make an item that will add volatile airs occasionally when mining/herbing/skinning. There are no new gas clouds. At the moment the amount of volatile airs you get this way is pretty crazy- fishing will occasionally give volatile waters
