Now, although I'm not a fan of that ideology, it isn't the biggest issue I have.
The real issue is how awfully long it will take to farm a profession to level 600.
By my own calculations, I will need about 25 Spirits of Harmony to reach level 600 Leatherworking, which would be 190 Motes of Harmony. Since these have a 10% droprate, that means I will have to kill 1900 random creatures to reach level 600 Leatherworking.
If I'm honest.... not something I'd enjoy doing.
A change to this would be quite useful, whether it is the removal of the BoP issue (a guy can dream), or an increase in drop rate.
