One of the ongoing issues with World of Warcraft Classic has been the complaints about spawn rates with the higher population on realms. Black Lotus is an herb gathered from high level zones including Winterspring, Eastern Plaguelands, Silithus, and the Burning Steppes.
While even in Vanilla they were rare, they are now almost impossible to get in any type of large quantity without buying them on the auction house. These flowers are used for quite a few flasks and alchemy recipes, causing frustration among players at the high cost due to them being farmed constantly.
Blizzard has now made changes to account for the increased populations that should leave the flowers still rare, but more inline with the original intent from Vanilla.
Additionally they are implementing changes in the Warsong Gulch battleground. Players have taken to finding exploitative areas where the opposite faction is not able to reach them in order to return their flag. In this case the changes Blizzard is making is a little more… interesting.
They talked about the possibility of using invisible gates but from what they said that doesn’t work for all scenarios. Accordingly if you go into one of those areas, you’ll just die instead.
Hopefully that will correct the behavior issues we’ve been seeing in the PvP battleground, but you can always count on players to show ingenuity when finding exploits.
