Anyone else getting less gold after the patch? I used to get 100-150k gold on a king run, now I am getting 60-80k. I didn't see anything in the notes about this.
From the patch notes:
"Destructible objects no longer have a chance to drop items, and will only have a small chance to drop gold when destroyed".
They nerfed the drop rate of gold from the pots.
Seems like they nerfed object gold drops because of knuckleheads doing pottery runs. Thanks Blizz, for gimping my legit farming to spite the knuckleheads.
They weren't getting enough extra cash from RMAH sales because people were content to buy gear with gold. So they nerfed gold drop rates and made it 10 times as expensive to repair. Problem solved, more cash in ActiBlizzard's pockets.
This company disgusts me more and more every day. What made them successful in the first place was making good games. They're so greedy they've entirely lost sight of that.
I start at "The cursed hold" quest, and personally I go clear all three wings of the cemetary of the forsaken, then go to the forsaken woods and clear both caves and the event there, then to leorics manor and go right outside, kill the 1-2 rare packs just outside, then do the warden/butcher.
Make around 150k easily, just with gold and vendor selling things, sharding the level 60 gear for mats and either selling them or making six random gloves.
On mobs I been noticing a lot less gold from them as a whole, drops have been a lot less as well.
I love that the one place I go has been ignored completely. All I do is kick things, average about 250k an hour, more if I push it, purely non-combative area, spawns a few chests sometimes, and takes less than 2 minutes to clear. Never hit the, " You've started to many instances" or whatever they tell you.
I'll make about 100k per run, and once in a while, something good (maybe more now).
