View Full Forums : Nerfed herb drops

03-04-2006, 01:24 PM
I use to be able to go to blasted lands for gromsblood and Swamp of sorrows for blindweed. Now blasted land has ZERO Gromsblood, and Swamp of Sorrows has a much smaller amount I'd say about 85% less probably even more. Meanwhile herbs have been going down in AH. Seems like I should just drop herbalism and take up engineering as a second tradeskill.

Have you tried doing your herby runs during unsociable hours? It's possible that other herbies are getting there before you and the zones you're looking in are being picked clean..

I haven't noticed any changes, Swamp of Sorrows is as fertile as ever for me.

A guildie of mine his SoS every day for blindweed and always comes back with a few stacks ( after not that long too ).

Sounds like someone is beating you to it.

The first time there was a warrior there, so I took that into acount. The second time was at around 4:30am when I get ready for work. There was blindweed there.. but I use to be able to get 10 or so in a full run.. I stripped the whole zone and only got 2, everything else was liferoot or some other one. I was looking at the blindweed item thread on thottbott, many of the people there said the same thing.

I've run it twice since you posted and no problems on my server.
