    Ok, this may be a noob question, but what is the benefit of mining in Illeshnar over Fellucca. I know in Felucca that each time you get mine each swing you get double the ore (plus the off chance that you are a human and get that random extra stack) and the eles (atleast shadow and above) give you the 25 stacks of ore. Do the paragon eles give you more ore, better loot?? bring me up to speed please.

    Paragon ore elemental chests are rare, and fetch a premium when sold.

    Other than that, the main draw is that you have far less competition for the ore, since it is a no-mark facet. If you know how to manage veins to where they don't reset, you can have productive veins that no one else goes to, that rarely (if ever) change.

    Of course, mining up a paragon valorite elemental on Swoop Hill, before the buff to the swoop, had its own fun side-effects (the val is immune to pets, summons and spells - alas poor swoop farmers...).
