    Dragonmaw Pass
    Vale of eternal Blossom
    Zouchin Beach

    All had their spawn timers increased or hard coded to be 2 mins or longer.

    Windward (drops nerfed slightly)

    All in 3 weeks... looks like blizzard doesn't like people AOE farming.

    So they remove any decent chances we have of farming instead of banning the bots? Nice.

    I understand raids being reduced... you could run those and earn hundreds of gold from the loot, but farming locations? If someone wants to spend 6 legitimate hours at a location farming for gold, you should let them.

    Oh well, now you can just instance run Grim Batol or Lost City of the Tol'vir 10 times an hour with treasure finding pot for almost the same cloth as you were getting in dragonmaw pass anyway.

    Old world materials aren't the only focus...

    It is not Blizzards responsiblity to handle the botters. They are here and will be here as long as people keep being full retard and keep buying gold.

    You want the botters gone, stop complaining to Blizzard and get your friends to stop buying into their BILLION dollar a year industry.

    Blizzard is making it harder for the honest man because some people are too lazy to do it themselves. Period.

    Which? Oh please do tell. Am bad farmer and all the spots I found across pandaria have at least one aspect which makes them not worthwhile such as mob dennsity not dense enought, respawntimers slow, or too much HP.

    I thought you didn't consider aoe farming worth the time compared to the AH.

    Gotta try this out. Any idea how much cloth you get extra from the racial? Wondering how much better it is to take my tailor toon.

    Which just happens to be the biggest time-sink in the game...

    IMO now all the farm spots are at the same ~gold per hour.

    Also i don't understand why Blizzard are nerfing them, since this is the only thing left to do now ingame..farming gold lol.

  12. #32
    They specifically are trying to avoid inflation. They did this first at end of Cata iirc with nerfing of raid boss gold.

    My only comments about the AH both in public posts as well as in private messages were always negative.
    That is because whenever you want to "play the AH" you have to beat 5% Cut plus the expected Profit of the seller, and then when you resell the item in some shape you have beat the 5% Cut again and make profit on top of that. It is common knowledge that Casinos make you lose money and they have usually 2-6% "lose" rates, for example Roulette has 2,7%.
    "Playing the AH" means you have to beat two casinos and also the player you buy from so no, would not consider anything not worth the time compared to AH.

    But please Master Critique reveal some coordinates or Map Screenshots from worthwhile farmspots. #Love

    Did a little test. Ran Grim Batol and Dragonmaw pass on my tailor with a treasue finding potion to see the results. Heres what I ended up with...

    Grim Batol: 1 run - 12 min
    ~112g
    ~25g in greys
    166 Embersilk Cloth
    5 greens
    4 pyrite ore
    10 elementium ore
    15 elementals

    Dragonmaw Pass: 14min of farming
    ~53g
    ~24.5g in greys
    185 Embersilk Cloth
    1 green
    7 pyrite ore
    4 elementium ore
    24 elementals

    Looks like they just balances it out so it was in line with farming in 5 mans. Damn shame... used to do ~800-1000 embersilk in 30 min in Dragonmaw pass

    Grim Batol is clearable in as little as 4:30 on my mage, you just suicide off the edge at the end and reset the dungeon as a ghost, zoning into a new instance. Multiply your GB numbers by 10 runs/hour and you have numbers in line with what Dragonmaw Pass used to give.

    (also, I'm not telling what spots weren't nerfed, they'll just get ruined by dozens of destro lock and hunter bots showing up)

    800-1000 was not even that great tbh. I got atleast 5k cloth an hour in dragonmaw.
