Please try to get this fixed before DMF ends, I need to come up with enough inks for ~40 cards and with the current spawn rate of Fool's Cap...yeah.

The nerf seems to be local to Briny Muck (and Dread Wastes possibly) but not global as Valley of the Four Winds is still an herbing bonanza. I might recommend to those folks with card farms taking a wander out there (I realize it's 10 stacks of subpar milling herbs vs 6.25 Fool's Cap stacks per card, but still).

To clarify, there wasn't an intentional reduction in the number of herb spawns. We're investigating the situation now.

What the hell is up with this nerf? I've been flying around Briny Muck for around 30 minutes and I've found maybe 10 nodes, and that's 10x more than I found in dread wastes.


woo!

I can cite so many examples of this, it's starting to get ridiculous.


Cool, let's hear them.

This is horrible ! I couldn't even get a whole stack of fool's cap at all, even after much farming. And I needed Fool's Cap to make my strength potions so I couldn't just gather another herb. Sucky , sucky move Blizzard.

Futile attempt to curb the botting, nerfing legit players farming.


Blizzard absolutely LOVES to punish innocent players.
It seems to be their main goal.

Oh for the love of...stop blaming everything on bots!

I wouldn't be surprised if node rates were nerfed again simply because they were RIDICULOUS at launch and remained incredibly plentiful even AFTER they nerfed spawn rates.

Farmer Rekrap at your service! What would you like?* Herbs, ore, enchanting, cloth, many other items to choose from.

*disclaimer only 16 nodes per day so don't be greedy, alt currently has 12.

Sure, they deserved a nerf. But NOT to this magnitude! I'm so beyond frustrated with getting 10 stacks of fool's cap an hour, it's not even funny.

The funny part is, Blizzard hasn't addressed this at all yet. The idea that it was done to stop bots is something players came up with on their own and treat as a gospel truth without any evidence outside their own biases.

I think the reason for the ton of spawns at the the start was to accommodate CRZs when they become active in Panda Land.

Likely didn't intend for as many nodes to be active yet.

I love how they had time to nerf the node spawns in Pandaria, but couldn't be bothered to address Outland.

Did they intend for it to be this scarce, then? This is beyond ridiculous.

I think it's more likely they wanted to avoid a repeat of the beginning of Cata when nodes were too few and there was heavy competition for them. Ditto the cloth that rained on our toons the first six weeks.
