Dear Blizzard, we urge you to repeal the recently introduced cap of 30 unique instances per day, per realm in World of Warcraft Classic. If you do not take the time to consider just how malicious your negligence is in the implementation of this change, then we the players must combat it via action on all fronts by whatever means necessary.
Feral druids in Classic are reliant on the Manual Crowd Pummeler drop from Gnomeregan. This drop makes us competitive. With instances already capped at 5-per hour, feral druids already have to carefully plan Gnomeregan farms when their schedules allow. Some of us with the time to do so might spread these farms out over a week, locking out twice a day, spending 30 minutes across two lockouts to get some pummelers. Others might only have time on the weekends, spending under two hours farming the mace over 7 or 8 lockouts. What is the Feral Druid who farms Gnomeregan only once or twice a week to do, given the recently introduced cap of 30 unique instances?
Although I’m a Feral Druid, I’m not here to discuss just my spec. I could be diplomatic and demand that the drop-rate of the Manual Crowd Pummeler be 100%, in order to replicate the rate at which I collected pummelers before this change was implemented. But I will not do that. This goes for all of us. I speak too for the mages selling boosts or farming ZF/Mara, for the hunters farming Tribute runs, for the pre-bis casters looking for Jed over in Blackrock Spire, even for the DME jump runners who cannot find a better path to riches. That Feral who only farms Gnomer over two lockouts a day likely has alts too: Should they abandon leveling in SM? All of us will suffer here, in World of Warcraft Classic, with oppression at the hands Blizzard, with the economic exploitation of our wallets over the broken promises #NoChanges.
If you, Blizzard, do not repeal this change soon, I think you’ll have to agree that we’re going to be forced to unsubscribe.
