Regional FlagIce fractal - svanir loot nerfed?Source

So I used to kill the 3 svanir+wolf groups at the end of the fractal because they dropped good loot, at least 10 items. Other people skipped them because they didnt know the good loot. However since latest patch I only gained 0-2 items (same with everyone else from group) from doing them. Good job in making people want to skip even more.

Hey folks,

What was happening here was that some of the mobs were respawning in the dark forest area, and they were dropping loot. This meant that the spawns could be farmed continually in an instance, which is something that poses some danger.
We have the tech to turn off their loot without having to patch. Our next content patch will fix the issue with them respawning, and they will have their loot turned back on then once they can no longer be exploited by farmers.

Hey folks,

Thanks for bringing this back up. We still had the safety measure on after the patch went through that fixed the problem. We have now turned the safety measure off, and can confirm that the Svanir in the forest area will now drop loot once again.
