the SP stashes are full since long ago . unless a wipe comes out i doubt there is a big number of SP players that care about drop rates any more . if this was an issue , you would have heard a lot of bitching about it since long ago .

You must be blind because
changelog to v 1.2 wrote: Reverted the nerf to single player drop rates


Which means version 1.2 already disabled nerf that was applied along with realm items transfer to sp. I'm playing sp alot and 1.2 version have alot higher quality drop rates compared to 1.1.3 :flip:

Have you found any good WDM COTW's you might be willing to trade via LAN? I've been farming Viz'jun and haven't found shit.

nono you misunderstood.
Version 1.1.2 brought a huge buff to sp droprates. Then they were stealth-nerfed in 1.1.3, then they were buffed back up in 1.2 to same level as 1.1.2.
And from what I hear it's nerfed again in 1.3 (although I didn't test this yet)

Alright thanks. Seems to me like a silly decision to nerf it again.

I cant tell myself if drops changed because had no chance to play current patch and will not play anytime soon, so must believe what you are saying is true.

I agree with you that more accurate changelog means better feedback in future and no matter if its drop rate change or anything else.

To be fair I must also add and highlight few things from older patch which in fact was drop buff (basically less time wasted to get top quality crafts):

Many low quality rolls on stats will now stop spawning on items with level 90 or more
Low impact affixes, which are unwanted by most players will now appear less frequently
Added new top level rolls for many affixes - these spawn infrequently
Shrines will now grant all of their bonuses
