Stealth Nerf to Glimmer Griever Drops?

on Hib, one of our prime farming spots is Sheeroe Hils, and notably on the Grievers due to their metal armor drops. Apparently with the latest buff pot patch, the drop rate or drop table has been altered significantly. Was this intentional?

Re: Stealth Nerf to Glimmer Griever Drops?

It is not a stealth nerf or a ninja nerf. Grievers were just wrong. They had drops on them which they shouldnt have dropped at all. Those drops got removed.

Glimmer Grievers are level 48, 49, 50, 51, 52 and had their regular (salvageloot) on them. That got fixed. They will only drop ROGs now.

We are atm checking "salvageloot"-mobs and if we find any other mobs that dont have the correct loot on it, we will fix that. Feel free to open a bug report if you know of any mobs that have the wrong loot on them. And not only in the other realms, but also in your own.

Well you do realize that this is a bad idea, because the hibernian economy is already completely destroyed and there are people probably sitting on hundreds of platin by now. And that is just plain unfair to new(er) players, because there is not a single activity in this game that even comes close to this plat/hour.

There will be some funny moments at the Azurs now.
And with funny I mean akward. Until they also get fixed (,they are orange so I guess they aren't above 55 as well).
But there are alternatives. They may not give 8p/hour but 4-5p, so it's not that bad.
But as mentioned, it's bad for everyone who did not have the chance to farm there until now.

It would have been worth mentioning in the patch notes.

Are you suggesting that because Hib has been getting too much free money that they should be allowed to continue getting more free money and that it is unfair to stop Hib from getting more free money?

Re: Stealth Nerf to Glimmer Griever Drops?

yet more hib nerfs as if hib not losing enough players already. Guess I picked the wrong time to reroll hib, bac kto alb like 90% of population then. Nice way to ruin the hib economy for players who just switched to hib, how do we now compete with people who have 100's of plats and can keep prices inflated

Wow, this is a pretty huge change, I had thought it was intended for mobs in Sheeroe Hills to have their own loot so you could actually make money with salvage.
