I was in a low-level zone for an RP event with my guild, and our poorly chosen location ended up being the spawning point for a bandit-killing event. After giving the thugs the beating they so richly deserved, I ended up with a gold medal and 62 copper, instead of the usual 1.2s for < Lvl 50 events I used to get.

Does anyone know if rewards been nerfed across the board, or do events no longer bottom out at Level - 30? That is, do level 50 events give half as much money now?

It's a low level zone... you don't get rewards based on your level for DE's.

You're not entirely correct, unless that's the nature of the nerf. Event rewards were floored at Level - 30. If you did an event at level 80, you never got less than level 50 rewards, a level 50 never got less than level 20, etc.

Update: Okay, just finished a L45 DE, and got 1.9 silver. So that means that the reward floor has been dropped/removed, either intentionally or as a bug.

I got 4 silver earlier today for a simple defend event in WvW. I thought it was just a bug but now...ZOMG

So I decided to do some more testing. Brought the same 80 back to Queensdale and did the Eda's Apples event.

L80 Toon/L4 Event - Gold medal
XP: 6,464 (~L60)
Kar: 131 (~L25)
$: 65c (~L25)

Then I brought a level 48 alt, same DE

L48 Toon/L4 Event - Gold
XP: 1275(~L30)
Kar: 83(~L15)
$: 41c (~L15)


25/80 ~= 15/48 ~= .31, but that might just be coincidence, since the 80 got the XP for 75% of its level, but the 48 only got the xp for 63%.

I've got a Post up on the official bugs forums, but with things going the way they are, it's hard to tell whether it's a bug or a nerf.

If someone has the time, could you try this out and see if you get the same sort of results?
