Dark Soil Nodes

BRING BACK THE SPAWN RATES AND NUMBER OF NODES FOR THE DARK SOIL MOUNDS. I am fairly certain that you guys nerfed these overnight and there is NO reason for it. Not quite fair that you allow only a small collection of people who powered their way to 90 farm the hell out of these things then turn it off so that the rest of us have to go about it at a PAINSTAKINGLY SLOW PACE!

STOP messing with things that dont need to be fixed!

Or you know, it could simply be that those nodes have their spawn timers tied to the number of people in the zone, much like the mobs and other quest objectives. Virtually overnight most people finished the zone at about the same time and moved out. Less people in the zone means slower respawn on things. The soil patches may very well be one of them.

Anything's possible. But I don't believe this to be the case. There are still a ton of ppl in this zone on my server, but finding these nodes has dropped down to about 1 (2 if im lucky) about every 20min that I can find. I know there are more and I am only finding 1 because the others get looted by other players. But I was able to get an average of 1-2 per min yesterday. That big of a drop is not from player migration out of the zone.

I tried to farm some more today and the spawn was very low. Not only in Four Winds but on other two zones.

Dark Soil need to have a high spawn rate no matter if the zone have 200 chars or 2.

Pretty sure this was intentional. You're not supposed to be BFFs with everyone in the valley overnight.

Wasn't the case. On my realm at 5AM (When I start work) there was no one to be found and a lot of dirt piles. This has been nerfed significantly which really doesn't make any sense since it still was time consuming and it is not like the rewards are game changing at all.

Yeah I tried farming today and It seems like they decreased the spawn rate dramatically at some point, CHANGE IT BACK PLS.

The spawn rate was intentionally decreased. If you want to suggest a change, you'll need to post in a more relevant forum where the developers will actually look at the change.
