I thought that the reason that picking up herbs and hacking mines granted xp was to balance out the gathering professions that don't involve killing. I've got each of these professions across various toons, and I love free skins as much as the next skinner (big 'ol thank you to people who loot animal corpses!), but I don't miss the xp granted by picking up the skin because I get more than the "gather xp" the next time I kill an animal for its skin.On the other side of that, I was surprised to see xp granted by picking up herbs (and mining mines). My main is an herbalist and I can't say that I thought I was missing out on anything while maxing out the skill during Wrath. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the xp, I just see it as a pleasant little bonus from Blizzard along with the new herbs to pick up in the new zones.
