This is just Blizzard trying to keep nailing in the coffin of the Dwarven racial Find Treasure. No Chests or Trackable Quest Items in Northrend, no more chests in BC dungeons? Blizz just really either hates that racial or doesn't know what to do with it.

It's not all about the Find Treasure racial.I believe this change mainly dealt with rogues stealthing throughout instances and looting chests for BoE items. Being a rogue and having done this repeatedly at 70 for a few extra gold/shards while bored, I can understand why Blizz has moved on this.Since WoTLK has been out for some time though, I don't see these chests carrying much value to their loot.

I suggest you take your tinfoil hat off. It had nothing to do with that and everything to do with gold sellers, who routinely exploited mechanics to skip content for these valuable chests.

Well you can't deny that Blizz doesn't know what to do with Find Treasure, and it has no use in LK, and removing them chests from BC dungeons gives one less use for it. I'll give you the remaining chests in various outdoor zones in BC though.Since there's no other dwarf players on wowinsider, what possible exploit could there be with these chests? Level 80's farming them(and the bosses) has been possible since level 40 players started soloing the Deadmines. So where's the exploit?

Even if this particular blow has nothing to do with dwarves, for heaven's sake give us some decent racials. After you're done nerfing Stoneform and removing treasure from the game, why don't you take a good look at diplomacy? Or heroic presence?And exactly how many tanking maces drop in Naxx?

"Since there's no other dwarf players on wowinsider, what possible exploit could there be with these chests? Level 80's farming them(and the bosses) has been possible since level 40 players started soloing the Deadmines. So where's the exploit?"The exploit isn't so much an exploit as you can just loot them easily and the Outland chests actually had decent cash and items in them. Notice how the ones not in instances all have crap in them? Its because gold farmers just farm the hell out of them. The outdoor chests in Original release used to have decent stuff in them too until Blizzard had to nerf it because it was being over-farmed by gold sellers.Yes, they should fix the dwarf racial to give you something that works but stop the conspiracy silliness, it just makes you look petty. If blizzard sees an abusable issue in their game it is their duty to fix it quickly, not to leave something to be abused until they can program a new racial to compensate people.It sucks, you will eventually get something to replace it.

They should just change the dwarven racial find treasure so that you just get a straight buff to how much gold you gain from mobs and quests. Something like 5% wouldn't be game breaking. Either that or make it so you have a slightly better chance of getting BOE's to drop for you.
