I have promoted five of my main account's pirates I've received at most five items as drops; of those five, three were level 25 items. On one of these I only got three drops and all were level 25 items. This is severely disappointing and doesn't really encourage me to try to farm. This up-date has been slapped together and rushed into live.
Even more disappointed this morning -- I went and fought Old Scratch for the promotion on my witchdoctor, and the drops were LITERALLY JUST LOW LEVEL PET SNACKS?
I know they have a separate drop table from gear drops, but it is serious deflating when an entire high level dungeon results in a few rank 2-4 snacks. Could we at least have a chance at the occasional MEGA snack? At level 70?
I haven't received any more level 25 gear, but I did receive level 55 gear. So I believe they upped the gear to around level 55 for the Nightmare bosses.
However, I have noticed that a lot less "things" drop now. Only one or two gear items, some scrip, and the remaining chests seem to be gold averaging about 2000 gold per chest.
For me, this is a major improvement (getting rid of the odd level 25 drops), but it still doesn't provide a desire to farm the bosses, since my gear is already better than what they have to offer. Really looking for unique gear that I can stitch....that is my problem.
