    BfA Coins of Air

    Is there anything similar to Coins of Air in BfA or is pickpocket a waste of time?
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    you get around 30 silver per pocket picked. Nothing special, no quests, no Griftah.
    It's not a waste of time exactly,as long as you simply pick anything when it's convenient, but anything noteworthy about it is gone.

    I believe there was mention of Pick Pocket "things" being added "later"

    Could be mistaken though

    Download "quick loot" addon. Enable auto-loot in options. Macro pickpocket. Profit.

    Coins of Air was only introduced in 7.2.5 so could be that they will implement something similar later on during BfA

    Doubt it, but on a side note - was the 10k weekly stealth nerfed this week? Only got 1,232g instead of 2.5k

    Yep, nerfed again. Only 1232g now, so it's hardly even worth it anymore.
    Its not too hard to get 100k coins in about 15-20 minutes, but still.

    this is an example of cool things that keeps getting removed from the game.
    for rogues there is little incentive to pickpocket anymore, and i can't remember seeing a single lockbox in bfa either.
    combined with the ongoing homogenization and pruning, while rogues offer some great dps, they offer very little that is unique in the game anymore.

    This. I'd love more class-unique things in the game too.

    Been a while since I've done rogue, but iirc pickpocketting was not on the gcd. So couldn't you make a macro such as...

    #showtooltip opener
    /cast pick pocket
    /cast opener
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

    Necro-ing old thread for Shadowlands update.

    Looks like these Pickpocketing weekly quests rewards are scaling up now, at least on PTR.
    At level 12 (since you can start Legion @ 10 now), the Coins of Air weekly was rewarding only 100g, but on my 50 rogue (copied over), it was up to 1.6k, from the current 1.2k on Live.
    The WoD version (Da Big Score) is up to 275g at level 50, instead of 250g on Live.

    Anyone with Beta know if it's upped even more at 60?

    Interesting. May be worth doing them again, especially since with level/ilvl squish all the things you used to sell to farm gold are now worth shit.
    No one wants to choose. Everyone wants everything.

    I think that soon every user will be able to get enough Pick Pocket
