    Balrons in Blackthorns Felucca used to be my go to spot for gaining karma to stay above 20k even with casting necro spells.

    I used to be able to get to 30k in there.

    Today I went in with 21k, and get 0 gains.

    Not only that, but even with only 6k fame, I only gain 70 at a time. Used to be 200+.

    Balrons got nerfed for fame and karma?

    Now what do I kill to get karma above 20k?

    Just tested at Legends.
    Karma, honour and fame gains are normal at Fel Blackthorn Balrons.
    I was getting good karma gains at 28K karma.

    I always use Balrons to get Karma, but i fight them in Fan Dencer Dojo. And once i got the same thing - Karma was not increasing (it was on 22k). Another day it went to normal. I don't know what was reason there.

    I have solved the mystery, at least for me.

    Last night I was in a party, and even though my bud was no where near by, we were just in the party for chatting, it seems I was splitting karma with him.

    He said he didn't remember seeing karma gains while he wasn't killing stuff, but then again, he wasn't looking.

    I went back this morning, and I now have 29K+ karma.

    Is gain on balrons better than on Trasher?

    I seem to remember thrasher topping me out at 25k, I could be mis-remembering that though. I find the loot table on balrons to be slightly better though, so there's that. I usually only hit thrasher to farm leather. Take 30 charges of a BoS in there, leave with 16k leather in the bank 40 minutes later.
