Raid Loot Droprates Tuning -- February 16

With scheduled weekly maintenance (February 16 in this region), we intend to make tuning adjustments to increase the amount of loot rewarded in Castle Nathria, and to improve the ratios of certain types of drops.

Raid

  • Castle Nathria
    • Bosses now drop 33% more loot than before, in all difficulties.
    • Weapons tokens now drop more often than before, in all difficulties.

10-player raids should now see 2 gear items, and 20-player raids should now see 4 gear items from each boss. These adjustments will not affect other loot that drops in Castle Nathria (such as Legendary Memories or Conduits), nor will there be any impact to drops from raid encounters outside Castle Nathria.

Thank you very much for your feedback!

Is that your way of saying thank you?

Guess I was wrong. Hope that helps alleviate it for those having issues w/ loot drop rates. Nice to see them do quicker changes than they used to.

What happen to Ion saying the loot drop was totally fine and he likes it the way it is. And where is all elist who said the same thing? What happen I thought they all say blizzard was right to nerf loot drop? Maybe blizzard was actually wrong.
Now all the elist is going to complain coz just coz causal night have have a chance at better loot now.

Why only 4 items for 20 players? Meh…
It used to be 5 per 20 players for years, make it that way…

Great - so PVP still has the easiest / best gearing, Raiding gets more gear, mythic+ has to wait a month just to get the honor of having to re-farm all of our gear again with 2-3% chance of getting targeting pieces per dungeon just so we can upgrade with a weekly cap. Awesome.

This is clearly to increase token sales since carries get more loot now.

In all serious, this sounds like solid news for the raiders in the room. Thanks for the update, Blizz
