The prices of the Black Lotus are getting out of hand. This resource spawn rate was designed around a population of 3-4x less players than are currently inhabiting the large servers. This problem is only going to worsen as the demand goes up with new content like AQ and Naxx. With current prices around 175g-200g, how high will you let it climb before acknowledging this problem was created by increasing server populations way beyond Vanilla’s levels?
I will admit that this is also partially caused by the player base and min-max culture. Every player does not need a flask for current content, but at the same time only a handful of players are getting to interact with lotuses in the open world. Devilsaur spawn rates were adjusted to compensate for this at the beginning of classic, now please do the same for Lotuses so campers and bots are not the only players who see them outside the AH.
