I got the BMAH-exclusive gun for 12k.... It's pretty nice until I get something better.
OP here, still rocking 463 (471 with upg) blue gun, item level is now 492
Done: Lei RF, WIll RF, Will normal, saved last coin on Lei normal.
Coined this week Lei RF and Protectors elite. Not going to arse bout the will bow anymore when I have gem in bank.
BMAH 483 gun spawns fairly often on my realm but screw that, it never goes below 70k. Damn full server.
gonna be doing Lei Shi tonight. Brothers I humbly request sacrifices for the gun. I am at 0 coins atm and situation looks grim the blue weapon I got is so terrible it makes me cry. Oh hunter gods *gets dark and kneels as drums play* I beseech you oh hunter gods *grabs bow* I wish to honor you, and to honor you I humbly request a better instrument to rain upon my foes. *blood sacrifice* I offer blood in return for a better weapon. *sky clears* well now that thats done Ill see myself out.....
Guess what? I'm a Warrior, and for the entirety of Dragon Soul, I did not win a roll on even ONE Gurthalak. When there was barely anyone who could use it, it didn't drop, and when it did drop, it was either needed for OS, or needed to give to someones guildie. And You're complaining about raids that have been out for less than two months?
I'll tell you what I think about the new loot system. I got Starshatter on my second week of LFR. I like those odds considerably better than 8 or so months of a 378 weapon, watching it go to someone who already had it or didn't need it in the first place.
For the record, 25m raiding is not the "'auto-answer" to these weapon drops.
3 actively raiding hunters in 25m guild, all spending coins for-the-gold-win:
6 WotE kills normal, 6 WotE kills LFR, 1 bow off either mode out of these 36 total 25m kills
3 Lei Shi kills normal, 3 Lei Shi kills LFR, 0 guns off either mode out of these 18 total 25m kills
1 hunter still in 463 blue, 1 hunter wearing the single 389 bow drop, and me in BMAH 383 gun.
I had been using the 463 caster dagger since release, and only just got my sha touched weapon this week, so I feel your pain.
Been using 2x upgraded 478 Conquest bow for the same reason. Haven't seen a single WOTE or Lei Shei weapon drop yet.
People have been complaining about this since Vanilla, it's totally RNG as we all know.
I've gotten a belt, shoulders, pants, 2 sets of bracers Elegon's Torch, Regail's Dagger and Loshan on my lock in the 3 weeks he's been 90, while my Warrior who's been LFRing since the start is still rocking his heroic axes and only LFR gloves (which I've gotten 3 times now.)
Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.
I'm still trying to get my 2h from Sha.
While Diogenes was relaxing in the sunlight in the morning, Alexander, thrilled to meet the famous philosopher, asked if there was any favour he might do for him. Diogenes replied, "Yes, stand out of my sunlight". Alexander then declared, "If I were not Alexander, then I should wish to be Diogenes", to which Diogenes replied, "If I were not Diogenes, I should also wish to be Diogenes."
