Ectoplasmic distiller going to stay how it is?

WoW Classic General Discussion

Many might not be aware but the ectoplasmic distiller from the t0.5 bracer quest line is a pretty crazy item for tanks. I puts a buff around all players when used. This application of a buff generates agro. So if this is used in a raid it can generate quite a lot of threat per second or TPS.
Wondering if any blue is going to comment on if blizzard is aware of this or not. If it stays how it is tanking bosses in classic is going to change quite a bit. As a tank I honestly would like to see it nerfed as it will make things even easier but if it stays how it is I will just adjust. Would be nice to know if anything is going to change with it before sink out the money for it though lol…

A hotfix was applied late last night that made it so the Ectoplasmic Distiller quest item would no longer generate threat. We made this change because in patch 1.12, dropping this item applied a buff to everybody in range of the item, and since buffs generate threat by default, it could be used to trivialize the threat mechanics in many encounters. We don’t believe this was an intended effect and this was a case where the impact was extreme enough to warrant the change.

Another notable reason for the change is that this item is not a quest reward, but item used as part of the mechanics to complete a quest, which is then removed when the quest is complete. We want quest completion to be a rewarding experience, and not feel like a mistake.
