If I have a level 50 mining character spec’d, how long do the developers think it should take to work off the death penalty? I am estimating 5+ hours of mining. This seems like a lot when if I was a hunter it would probably could be addressed by a single hunt (tag 20 cuttles that die for 1000xp per).
I can mine roughly 57 blocks (non-ore) in about 30 seconds then rest for 6-7 seconds to recharge energy. Spending 20%+ of my time resting is frustrating, but I am hoping I can find a better mix of skills to do something about that. (Suggestions on addressing this are very welcome btw).
