I have got more items last night from LFR then i had in 6 weeks > so yes defenitly a higher drop rate.
Maybe not noticable at once for everyone.

Its great reading all this and knowing that most of the people here are the type of people that back up old school wow saying stuff like "Back in the day i used to work hard for gear! bring the game back to the old days etc etc " then saying the game sucks because you dont get max geared from LFR in the 1st 2 weeks... seems legit...
The drop rate is increased, that doesn't mean loot is guaranteed. I've only had the chance to run one LFR wing on my main alt (monk) nad got shoulders I already had and didn't need. Aggravating but...well, its aggravating.
You must show no mercy, Nor have any belief whatsoever in how others judge you: For your greatness will silence them all!
I got 8 pieces from 1 LFR ToES on my druid. (with elder tokens of course, had like 15 of them from that scenario lol)
Drop rate def is better but i guess some people got unlucky
I've got loads of drops since 5.2 for my Druids OS, not ran it on alts yet until I get more Charms on them through running the solo scenario.
I've gotten 2 items in lfr so far, and I've only done Heart of Fear
I guess if people used the previous LFR loot system they way they were supposed to then the game wouldn't change it to completely random. But i also guess that would be too much to ask for ... i can't remember how many times a feral dps needed on the int neckless on morchok and won it...
With respect to T14 LFR, before 5.2 my 3 LFR capable alts all of them had at least 10 LFR items equipped by the time 5.2 dropped. That is actually more raid items than my main raider has. We have not seen any Pally, priest, lock tokens drop. There has been no int shield drop, there has been no int plate drop, no int weapon without hit has dropped, The only items my healer has gotten are two rings and two trinkets, plus what ever valor items I have purchased. Yesterday after the patch I ran LFR on my healer and picked up all 5 Tier tokens, a shield and a the sha touched mace without coins. So I would say the drop rates are definitely increased.
LFR is not slower than real raiding in terms of gearing up. LFR is not faster. Over all it is the same. Some people have bad luck and complain very loudly, some have good luck and shout it loudly, the vast majority get their 1-2 items out of 5 LFRs per week and say nothing.
Did all LFR's on my paladin this week. 16 bosses, 7 items. 2 of which I wanted quite badly.
Kri'tak, Imperial Scepter Of The Swarm
T14 head (offspec)
T14 gloves (offspec)
Signet of the Profane
Spirits Of The Sun
Healing mace from Will of the Emperor, vendor'd because I'd already gotten Kritak!
Seems your luck is just bad Or mine is just good
Tripling the drop rate of 1% is still only 3%.
And still is more of a chance than 1% + coin 1%.
They're sneaky like that.
Not as bad as my druid:
The week before 5.2 I killed Elegon and got the leather chest, used my coin and got...the same leather chest. Yesterday I killed him again, and got the leather chest again, used my coin and got my 4th leather chest!
But to be honest, last week I ran HoF 2nd part and ToES and got all 5 tier tokens in the same day
Spent 14 elder charms on Shek'Zeer/Lei'Shi since 5.2 was released, still no sha-touched weapon - bad luck is bad :<
From a recent blue post:
What do you guys think?Our developers are aware of and looking at ways to address outlier cases in Raid Finder where even a greatly increased chance to drop isn't enough.
