It has been a long, long time since I last played World of Warcraft. Back when fast land mounts were 1000 gold training and You had to "run the gauntlet" as we called it in my former guild to get between Night Elf starting lands and the rest of the alliance starting lands...
Basically, back before Burning Crusade had even been released. But that's enough reminiscing for now.
My question is this: Was the money drop rate nerfed since then? I realize things change over time. Especially over the course of nearly 3 expansions now... But I seem to recall being able to go down to Silithis, running just west of town, and killing the humanoid enemies there for anywhere from 1 to 5 gold each. I just went back there to build up a bit of money (I gave all my gold away before I quit last time), and was quite disappointed by the results.
So, was it nerfed since then, or is my memory just being wishful?
