WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

Gathering no longer needs tools

No need for tools when gathering
Mining and skinning no longer require that you have a Mining Pick or a Skinning Knife in your bags, as of patch 5.0.4. If you're thinking you missed this change in the patch notes, you didn't. It's not there.

Don't throw away your tools just yet, however; each gives +10 to your skill. The new Herbalist's Spade is now available to give +10 to your herbalism as well. And if you have a Gnomish Army Knife, all three gathering professions get +10.

The Mining Pick, Skinning Knife and Herbalist's Spade can all be purchased from your local Trade Goods vendor. None of the tools have to be equipped in order to gain the bonuses, but the spade sure looks fetching, don't you think?

[Thanks for the tip, Atara!]

It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!
