Heavy Sacks - Difference since patch?

Has anyone else noticed that heavy sacks seem to contain a greater quantity of items since the patch? At least on the XBOX I have. I got 5 potency ruinstones out of one and 10 raw ash out of another (which I happened to need). It seems like the "buffed" them.

    Yeah they sure have. Be sure and grab them when you see them. I've gotten up to 20 rough nightwood from one of those on the NA PC server.

    Right on. That's a nice change. In the past, they were pretty worthless.

    I read in the patch notes that they changed something with heavy sacks dues to them respawning too often.

    I have looted 5 Ta's from the Heavy Sacks a couple of times. So, that just tells me that 5 Rekuta's or Kuta's might happen.

    Was this before the IC patch? Or after?

    If before... I have faith in 5 Kutas :)

    Looting corpses and chests seems to be buffed as well. My new level 18 toon is picking up items that my level 30 was just starting to pick up previously.

    I concur with this!

    Thank you Zenimax. It's a great change.

    Also, thank you for letting us free that horse, you know the one. But that's another story...
    If you can be anything, be kind.

    Actually I'm rather displeased so far with this change, because they used to usually hold either trait stones or runestones (which seem to be less plentiful than other materials), and even with passives in refinement some of the trait stones are hard to come by so the heavy sacks were really gold to me, but now.... 10 barley that I easily get whenever I actually need it by just ducking into a level 5 dungeon to loot the crates and barrels, or 10 rough wood that I can reliably harvest myself by just running out and checking known spawning areas.... it's really a bummer. I don't neeed those, they aren't gold for me, it's not a special find. The trait stones however definitely are, and I've not been seeing those lately. I used to always always make sure to get the heavy sacks, now... I'm probably not going to be actively keeping an eye out anymore. :(

    Trait stones are not "gold" other than Nirn... that's why they sell for less than 1g each in stores.

    *shrug* all I can say is that I'm always finding myself low on divines, exploration, precise, and training stones despite all the refining and deconstructing I do (and hirelings), and while of course you can buy things in guild-stores, I personally enjoy obtaining things myself through playing rather than shopping and always wonder how much someone had to go through to accumulate some things.

    After playing since launch and saving all the stones I get from just playing, and selling many stacks to vendors just to clear space I think I still have about 600 of each stone and 600 of each non-rare crafting style. :disappointed:

    I kind of feel they're all too worthless and would love to see more use for them. I guess I can't expect my own experiences to reflect everyone's though.

    One of my fellow guildies received 5 Kuta's from a heavy sack shortly after the update. I hate him :) About the best I've done is receive a Potent Nirncrux in one in Upper Craglorn at one time. If there is the possibility of getting 5 of those now, that would be sweet :)

    I got 5 Rekuta out of a Heavy sack earlier today. I had to double check my inventory. I couldn't believe it.

    I'm a fan of the change. I will actually dismount from my trusty steed to loot these sacks now.

    dont forget the "lush" materials now. Found a bunch of 5 lush void bloom in craglorn yesterday - gained 70 void blooms from 5 plants.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the new change yet. While it's nice to see higher quantity, it hasn't been fun seeing nothing but wood, fibers, ores, or fungus.

    I did find 5 essence runes and 3 aspect runes (Ta, of course), so there's hope maybe I'll score the greatest find ever: 5-10 Kuta runes.

    One can dream.
