Gathering from a node where a member of the opposite faction is fighting a mob is good and right. Taking from someone of your own faction is evil and selfish.

I agree, but since I play on a PvE server, where you can't "deal" with people of the opposing faction "correctly", I prefer to never attempt to take from a node that ANYone is near. Why waste my time dismounting and remounting over a single node and getting/causing ire.If I do end up trying to take a node that was being attempted for by another player, I just stop tapping the node and help them kill the mob. I also move away to relieve any proximity stress that you get when farming.

Comon don't be mean just because he rolled the opposing faction. He's still a person behind that screen.

I'm actually surprised at either the number of ore nodes or the respawn rate of them, because last night I was out mining and came across like 3 other people doing the same thing. If I saw someone headed for a node, I went on to find another one. By the time I was done looping twilight highlands a couple times, I noticed I had a lot more ore than I thought I did since I kept running into people. It either respawns faster or there's more of it, no need to fight over it - opposing faction or not. :)

@walkerspace, I totally agree with you. Node PvP is a perfectly acceptable form of aggression vs. the opposite faction.

Depending on the area, you can simply fly by and collect the next node or two. Totally not worth fighting over. Also, if there is a mob there to fight, time is money, just go to the next one.

That's why I like farming with my rogue. So many stuns and CCs that I can disable 2-3 in the area, mine, then vanish away.I find it funny when I'm farming and someone is following same route, so they keep coming short of my node mining. You'd think after one or two they'd stop landing once I'm halfway through a node, but no, I've had some follow me for 5-7 nodes straight, never getting there in time to beat me.

Nodes are worth fighting over if you like PVP. If you remember, we still are at war with them, whether it's fighting over land or fighting over resources. It's something a little more tangible than just attacking someone just running down the road.Also, not every node battle is from farming. I often stop to gather stuff if it just happens to be along my route (free money, right?). So there is no "just get the next one". I either get it or move on, and chances are that I have time to duel one person.All that being said, I am almost never the aggressor. If I see someone gathering, I move on. It's when I'm gathering and someone tries to ninja me that I open up the can of whoop-ass.

@Moeru When I need to farm ores, I'll do it on my rogue...there's no easier, quicker way to get elementium than to stealth through the depths in Highlands, and there's hardly anyone in there (or if there is, they're usually having to fight off other people). The only time I get concerned is when I'm in there and see other mobs sapped...then I know I've got competition!As to grabbing other peoples nodes; if someone's there clearly going after it, I'll leave it alone. When an Alliance player swoops in to grab it from me, I get angry, but I get it and get over it. When a fellow Hordie grabs it off me though, that's when I get irate.

I freak people out when they're fighting a mob at a node. I swoop in and help with the mob, then /bow while they mine. Either faction, it's all good. Mining Club, there's plenty nodes for everybody!
