More nerfs to furnishing plan drops?

Have there been more nerfs to the drop rates of furnishing plans? They were severely nerfed sometime during my hiatus in 2020, but they seem to be even worse now. Has this been your experience as well? I've been looking for Summerset plans, which even last year, had abysmally low drop rates, and now I only see the odd green plan. (And of course, I've never even seen furnishing plans from the new chapter).

    Yeah, I used to make good coin selling plans but not much since Elsweyr for me.

    I usually get several greens, a few blues, and if I'm lucky, a purple every day, just by looting every desk, urn, trunk, etc. that I see.

    They have a kind of cool down. If you get a purple.plan for example you won't get another one for 1 to 2 hours (don't know the exact number) on the same character no matter how much you loot.

    But if you have an alt, you could just switch.

    I just want to furnish my home :D Thankfully I learnt a number of Alinor plans from 2019, but there are a few I've been trying to get, and no luck in the 18 months I've been back. I can't even find them on the traders now. I'm going to have to spend some writ vouchers with Faustino, I guess.

    Yup, desks, nightstands, wardrobes, urns and backpacks. I get some greens, maybe a blue or two during an afternoon running around some towns, and maybe a purple every 2 or 3 weeks - however 90% of the blues and purples are provisioning recipes or base game plans, so it's all pretty dire. In the past few months, it's been a lot worse too, it seems.

    I can't remember if crates and barrels can contain plans, might have to take a look at those too.

    Yes, I've heard that, thanks. Purples rarely ever even drop for me, unfortunately.

    So this is funny, after literally years of looking for the Alinor armchair blueprint, it finally drops after I posted this thread! There must be little elves working behind the RNG here :D Thanks, RNGesus!

    Odds increase on furnishing plans when stealing or pickpocketing.
