I think they're fine where they are. Sure, a better drop rate would be fantastic. Maybe a 1:4 or a 1:5 ratio. I was collecting rocks over in the Badlands off of the Elementals. The lesser rocks had about a 1:7. That felt like forever. But the next quest to get 3 big stones was a 1:1.The reason I think that Blizzard made these drop rates as they did is because we can get great Exp from killing these mobs. Lets say I did have a 1:7 drop rate on those lesser stones.200 exp per kill,7 mobs per dropNeeded 10 drops.10x7=70 mobs, 70x200 = 14,000 ExpRight there, even in 2.3 terms (at level 40), is about 3.5 quests. Now you turn in your loot and you have about 17,000 Exp just for doing one quest that is not hard, but time consuming. I think this is why Blizzard put in these types of quests with a chance-of-drop bellow 25%. (It also could have just been my luck with those stones having such a low drop rate lol).-Aticus, http://www.paladintales.blogspot.com
