    What does "by desing" means? Another stealth nerf? I can't see anything on patch notes about that

    Like I've said before and will say it again, they have plans for WOOD as they had plans for GRANITE (dungeons). Let's see what comes..... :D

    I'm not aware of the specifics of the loot bundles in question, but in general loot packages are from time to time adjusted for balance and/or other reasons. Again in general, we try to avoid having the same mob drop the same thing 100% of the time .
    Need some clarification here on the issue you are seeing. Sounds like you are saying that the game balance is "off" for a particular scene. (all sieges, or just one?)

    Siege Engineers have always dropped wood as a part of the design of sieges. How much wood has varied over time. In R62, you would generally end a run of a siege with a mix of maple, pine, and wood scraps. I.e., a few hundred wood scraps, and anywhere from 20-60 maple and 20-60 pine (but the grand total across both wood types would generally be no more than 100). I.e., I might get 50-60 pine and 20-30 maple, or vice versa, depending on the run.

    In the beginning, you could even destroy catapults for wood & wood scraps. That was later removed. Unfortunately, your weapon will still target and hit catapults (which are unkillable). This is a long standing bug that also needs fixing.

    I've added an issue #64111 regarding the auto-target of catapults.

    I am seeing the same thing. The maple wood, pine wood, and wood scraps that drop in a siege are 10 to 100 times lower than R62.

    You may not recall, but just prior to R63 going live, there was an entry in the release notes that they were going to cap Adventurer level at 80, and all skills at 100, inside of sieges. This change was reverted prior to R63, but it was being done to address an exploit. My assumption is that they chose to address the exploit by reducing the amount of wood and wood scraps available in sieges. Thus the change in the title of this report to "By design".

    I'll try again: A player was exploiting sieges. This was addressed in R63 by reducing the amount of wood and scraps that are dropped. Thus the change is by design.
