With a hotfix, we’ve just made the following update on all Classic Era realms, including Hardcore realms:
Completing “Fish in a Bucket” no longer rewards gold.
This change was originally made in patch 2.0.10 and works well in Classic Era/Hardcore, as the original quest provided an uncontested, single-faction, infinitely repeatable, low risk gold reward that does not comport with the nature of the rest of the game.
We’ll continue to monitor for situations like this one and if necessary, we’ll take further steps to promote player interactions and Classic gameplay.
Wow, thanks for that, Alliance has been really struggling in getting players on Classic Era and this unfair advantage to Horde has finally been fixed. I’m glad this will help drive more players to alliance and finally create a balance.
this sounds like Horde favoritism. you can’t let them have nice things, and leave the alliance to inhabit their impressive building(s) (architecture) in peace and tranquility.
you are stirring them up into a frenzy removing this, and are going to get them, to, declaim each other, and cause the loss of alliance life, where it is, unnecessary in the functional, alliance-world…
Who care that it is a fact in Vanilla warcraft, that statistically, alliance does better in pve on a whole than their rival faction the horde, and that all horde has is an excellent pve game, pvp, and Their Gold.
NOW THE GOLD’S GONE!!! They’re coming for us, alliance!!! make yourselfs!!! MAKE REEEAAAADY!!!
