[Professions] Pandaria Mining

So, has anyone seen this drop yet? What are your thoughts? I think it is pretty cool. It is crazy to see the 100% drop chance though?

All gathering professions get similar stuff. It's talked about in the profession changes thread a couple days ago.

I know that many of them give you a +10 to skinning, herbalism, mining, but this is the first I saw of this particular item. I will have to read more through the professions thread.

there is an engineering item that lets you see extra mining\herb nodes.

Well, once I get my Monk leveled up, it looks like I will have to find both this and whatever the equiv. isf or herbalism. Looks like a fun time.

I think I saw this last night, a Horde DK beat me to it picking it up. I just figured it was a quest item. The rare items are just laying around and are rare spawns. I got to pay more attention to things that glimmer.

Yeah, that is why I was confused. It says from a "chest" with a 100% drop chance. It doesn't look like it is a chest if you saw it ont he ground, and with it being "rare", how does that equate to it being a 100% drop? More like a 100% drop when it decides to spawn.

That screen capture may be from MOP. I had to look it up once I saw your post. Then I realized what I might of saw last night.

Ancient Pandaren Mining Pick - wowhead
By benergy (1,016 – 7) on 2012/07/29 (Patch 4.3.4)
I found this today while questing in Greenstone Quarry in The Jade Forest. I ran around a corner and saw it lying on some rocks. I don't remember the exact spot, but it's a small cave. It was sparkling like an un-looted mob, but it wasn't a drop. I was also awarded the Lost and Found achievement.

Just to confirm, you can use this to replace your regular mining pick.

Also, although the caption reads "Allows you to find gems while mining in Pandaria," I have yet to find any gems from mining Ghost Iron Ore.

Indeed there is. Plus - it doesn't have to be equipped to get the benefit. Plus plus - you don't have to have a certain engineering skill to use it. Meaning - my DK (eng/ench) will be making one of these and sending it over to my hunter (mine/BS) ASAP. And, I will have to keep my eyes open for that Pick of the Gods. I've finally got my mining up high enough to get at the Rich Ghost Iron nodes, plus I'm far enough away from the starting area that nodes last more than 6 seconds. 0__0
