I see a lot of people missing two very important quotes:
25-man will drop more loot per player. So if 10-man drops 2 pieces of loot (1 per 5 players), then 25-man would drop something like 6 pieces of loot (1.2 per 5 players). The same would go for badges and gold.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
I've seen people quote mechanics of Lich King and (god only knows why) Thaddius in this thread. No current content is relevant as the content wasn't designed for 10/25 to drop the same loot. Current content was designed around 25-man dropping better loot.Originally Posted by Blizzard Entertainment
In summary: Pull your heads out of your asses and read.
