I disliked the idea of scenarios when they came out - I think Theramore may not have been a good advert; it seems significantly longer than most of the others. But as fillers in a LFR queue or just a way to grind VPs, I like them. Dailies can put you to sleep (after having done them so many times to get exalted with everyone) while 5-mans can be a bit stressy. Scenarios are halfway between - enough interaction to mean you stay awake, but no risk of drama. With double VP for the first of the day, they seem time efficient ways of grinding VPs. If you do one scenario a day, run each LFR and do some normal raids, you are likely to be close to vp capped.

As of yesterday, Elegon hotfixes were still not applied on EU side.

Once a shat-touched is acquired on my spriest, might give them a go.. hunter still needs too much LFR gear to bother with scenarios yet.

That seems backward to me. Scenarios are pre-LFR, though they can help with boredom while waiting for LFR and heroic queues.

I think the thing is "Getting VP from scenarios is a waste of my "alt-tab" time, as I need to run LFRs a lot anyway"

Did they recently do something to the Golden Lotus "droprate" from Enigma Seeds?

Right after 5.1 hit, I was getting 6 constantly from a full farm (and up to 9 or 10 on a good day), and in the last 4 days or so the highest I've gotten has been 4... :(

I had 7 last night, and only two the night before that.

Probably just increased the possible spread.

Random stuff is random. I've been getting only 3-4 since I started.

Got 10 from one character the other day, and 1 from another, both 16 plot farms. Just RNG.

Oh, sure, but I have 3 chars that run the full 16-plot farm with pure Enigmas (i.e., bigger sample size), where I was getting about 20 a day before from them, it's been down to about 12 lately. *shrug*

Just feels to me like they reduced it from about 1/3 to 1/4. Certainly possible that I was hitting the good side of the RNG, but there's enough sample size that I don't think it's likely.

Yesterday was the best I've had in a while (7 + 4 + 5) at least.

Almost the same here, most take too much time for the VP earned and low chance of something in the box. I always cross my fingers for the Arena scenario, quick and easy one..
