I knew something was fishy.
On sunday mornings when I wake up I always do Black Temple > Tempest Keep > Naxxramas > Ulduar on My main and my alt with the best ilvl. From the TBC raids I was getting SQUAT, at least they reverted it for now..
I find any other way of farming gold completely boring. Hope they don't ruin this entirely..
Let's hope they don't notice Nax.. I come out with like 10 stacks of cloth and 900g worth of vendored greens/epics/greys
In any case, just to be 100% clear and for tl;dr purposes: The change we made last week was temporary and has been reverted. Everything is now back to how it was.
Bonus Points if you have been stockpiling Netherweave cloth after the nerf.
Thats pretty random I was bored and noticed my T6 lock set was missing some bits so decided to go in and get them half way through BT I thought to myself "I've cleared half a raid and have barely gotten anything" now I know why
thing is ive never been one for solo farming in fact this was the first time I've ever solo'd either of them my timing is really bad
His statement is:
- cloth drop rate converted back to normal
- grey and greens drop rate maybe stay at fixed state
- trash mobs will only spawn if the previous boss has been defeated (not sure what he means with that -> so skipping Hydross will cause no trash to spawn after him?)
Interesting. Wonder what they changed so bots won't farm the instances anymore, but allows legit players to do so.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
Even if they go ahead and perma nerf trash drops, outdoor mobs still give a TON more gold and item drops than dungeons or raid and there's some epic places where there's more mobs than an instance has. Way more profitable, although questing players will rage if you're stealing all their kills.

Your journey towards the gold cap!
I think the best way would be to to cause Mobs to only drop Loot at their first death each reset Period for a player, i.e. once per day for dungeons and once per Week for Raids.
That way Mount/Achievment/Transmog Collectors get everything they want whie Bots are at the back foot
Simple, adjust the vendor price of Netherweave Cloth, Outland greens and the epic gems. Problem solved and trade skills aren't effected.
There will be a hotfix that trash won't spawn until you have killed the previous boss. So you won't be able to pull all the trash to Noth, pull Noth and then pull all the trash between Noth and Heigan without killing Noth which can be done today.
