I experienced this last night with my enchantress, figured the same (that they nerfed the over-generous drop rates of elites) and stopped farming. The lack of a patch note made me pause, but I do figure they can tweak drop rates and stuff like that server side without any client patches.

Glad now that I farmed the heck out of those dungeons with my archer the other day, especially with inter-character loot sharing via stash coming in 1.1. :P

idk I havent gotten a single pink today and only two purples in 10-15 runs.... seems like it but could be a stretch of really bad luck

It still amazes me when I see devs putting rumors to rest. Thanks Justg for the quick responses!

Wow, looks like my luck is rubbing off on other people.

I don't know about "nerfing" but I did notice a difference between these last couple days and last week... the difference being that sometimes I run 4-5 dungeons in a row (alone or in group) and get peanuts, while once in a while a single dungeon spits out a pink item within 45sec, often grabbed by the new comer (again...)

So you did it on monday, right? I'm on to your sly tricks :p

lol that could be the case Splurd becasue there is an obvious difference, while the pinks are still dropping they are much more rare than before.... As they should be IMO but I feel bad for the people who didnt get their loot over the weekend.

Dunno ... I grabbed a few pink bone armors this morning. Didn't "feel" like the drop rates had been nerfed.

Maybe you're just unlucky?

Could be it!

Haha so I guess this was just a case of randomness actually kicking in. Probably exacerbated by me having switched to my enchantress for some runs, which went much slower vs. my dps archer who I was farming with exclusively before.
