Blizzard i don't know if you are aware of this or not the there is a huge problem with Whiptail!

The whole place is packed with herbs...
We have instant respawns...
Pll don't even move then just stay in some small inland and farm it.
Whiptail price down to 50g on my server...
Pll report that they can farm to 2000 herbs a hour or 100 stacks per hour.
I was chating with 10 pll farming and there was still enough...

I can't stress enough how important to nerf as fast as possible is.

There is already a huge impact on professions/markets that depend on herbs...
Some ppl are thinking to sell slow(this means a long term effect on the AH) allready.
Lichbloom and Icethorn are selling for more atm.

I just did a quick math that a bot will be able to gather 48000 herbs if he farms for 24 hours

Combines with the nerf in alchemy(lower number of herbs needed) this a disaster the market is full to the brim and there is no need for so many herbs.

Please nerf this until it has effects for months.

So much Whiptail, so little time! Just what kind of fertiliser have those Tol'vir been lacing the waters of Vir'Naal with, and when will all this Whiptail madness end? Maybe sooner than you might have hoped. We've been looking into this sudden rush of Whiptail proliferation and we may be considering curtailing all that excessive growth.
