In the course of WoW Classic, we hadreported several times about the numerous rogue bots that did nothing but empty the pockets of the dwarves from the Blackrock Depths all day. The big plus point of this gold farm strategy: The pockets of the robbed automatically refill after some time, so that the bot users don't have to reset the instance at any time. The latter was worth its weight in gold after Blizzard introduced a dungeon limit for WoW Classic


To make sure that history doesn't repeat itself in the championship season, the developers came up with something, namely a thief debuff. This was introduced in the latest beta patch and comes into play whenever a rogue picks pockets ten times in a row in the Blackrock Depths.

The new debuff then makes all the dwarves hide their remaining belongings for 30 minutes, so the thief can only steal a gray item worth just one copper piece. By the way, you can remove the debuff by virtually dying. But then you have to live with the almost three minutes runtime back to the dungeon entrance. A cycle of claw, get debuff, die, run back, revive takes about five minutes and probably averages about 20 silver pieces. That's not exactly the stuff of gold dreams.

What do you think: Can the new debuff drive the rogues away from the Blackrock depths? Tell us in the comments!
