Ectoplasmic Distiller Changes
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
A hotfix was applied last week that made it so the Ectoplasmic Distiller quest item would no longer generate threat. We made this change because in patch 1.12, dropping this item applied a buff to everybody in range of the item, and since buffs generate threat by default, it could be used to trivialize the threat mechanics in many encounters. We don’t believe this was an intended effect and this was a case where the impact was extreme enough to warrant the change.

Another notable reason for the change is that this item is not a quest reward, but item used as part of the mechanics to complete a quest, which is then removed when the quest is complete. We want quest completion to be a rewarding experience, and not feel like a mistake.

    Not the point. You're not supposed to feel like the right way of doing a quest is to hold on to a tool for completing it and just having it take up space in your log.

    The change has nothing to do with getting the catchup gear, its about an item on the chain to get it that completely removes threat as something you need to care about. When this was used it was nigh impossible for anyone else to pull threat so DPS no longer had that as a concern and could just go crazy.
