AoE looting has only been in wow for a short time yet I can hardly remember a time before it. It just feels..so right, many other games had it for such a long time that it felt long over due. There are those who think of aoe looting as some sort of a conspiracy to give players less loot, or that less loot is given just no one notices since you still get more loot / time spent.
Is aoe loot a good or a bad thing? Is there a conspiracy behind aoe loot? What is the biggest benefit aoe loot has for you personally? What is your favourite spot to farm using aoe loot? Do you farm more with aoe loot now than before?
For me the biggest and best part of it is leveling, it has completely changed leveling for me. Before I could not be bothered to loot, the few coppers and low value grey items were simply not worth the loss of xp gaining time. But now I can kill / aoe grind as many mobs as possible and actually get treasure off them without slowing down my speed at all. Before I would not loot other than mobs needed for professions / quest loot I would not loot until at least late lvl 30s and even then I skipped about half the mobs all the way to outlands. It has completely brought me back to the time when I did not have lots of gold and every object looted meant more gold for me!
