Post-July-23-patch, Pinatas give weird rewards.

The July 23rd patch notes included that Pinatas would give rewards only on a kill. Unfortunately, I have some behaviour issues to report.

If I am NOT in a party, and I spawn a pinata, the person who kills it gets all the rewards. Regardless of if that's me or someone else. I suspect that if that person is in a party the rewards might be split, but that's not something I tested.

If I am NOT in a party, and I spawn a pinata, and I kill it after someone else has struck it, I get all the rewards.

If I AM in a party, and I spawn a pinata, and someone from my party kills it, the rewards are split among us.

This seems... worse than the previous behaviour of "everyone who hits a pinata gets some rewards". In particular, "the killshot gets all the rewards, split among their party" seems bad, when that means no rewards for the pinata spawner.

@nitocris83 not a BUG, per se, but very much a weird behaviour subject to griefing.

    Do you still get an equal amount of rewards as the way the pinatas worked prior to the patch? Because knocking off a few percentage of hp would give rewards, all the way till it was at 0 hp.....

    I believe the total amount is similar, yes.

    I have had some from last year on my characters and I find that only every 3rd or 4th one actually drops something and when it does its is usually 1 or 2 things. Brought some new ones, they appear so far normal from the two I have opened however they stack with the old ones. I am concerned the new ones will start to open and given nothing like the old ones as they stack.

    I mostly have old ones, and they produce expected results AS LONG AS I'm the one hitting them. As soon as anyone else is involved, they can take my loots.

    I'll let the team know about this behavior.

    TY. Again, not exactly a bug, but definitely subject to griefing and lootstealing.
