Since the patch I have noticed that node-based gathering, namely herbalism and mining is giving XP rewards. I presume a bug as it if it was intended then surely the reward would have been extended to all professions or at least to all gathering skills.
I can't see any mention of this in the "Known Issues" or in any other posts I hav searched for, and currently my lvl75 character is earning approximately 4,300 xp for each herb node he gathers!...... (not that I'm complaining!)
