I got loot from every boss in Terrace and the 2nd half of Heart of Fear. Granted, it was shit that I already had, but that's a gigantic step up.
Oh cool, super easy lfr content wasn't enough - guarenteed loot too! This is a step in the same direction (not saying it is right or wrong) but at least Blizz isn't flip flopping here.
I love that catchup is one set of RNG chances once a week now. It's so good getting all of your 463 items, doing the palace, getting some coins, getting 4 items, sitting on 467 and going "now what?". Oh wait now I have to find an MV pug that will take a 467 disc priest. This is going to be so much fun!
Fuck this stupid system. Fuck RNG catchup. Fuck it so much.
The RNG gods giveth and the RNG gods taketh away. Ive done LFR ToES and both MV LFRs and out of those 10 bosses Ive gotten 4 drops without coins. Nothing I needed (although Sha Crystals are always useful), but good to see more drops coming. They definitly upped the rate. Just gotta keep plugging away and the gear will come.
The funny thing is you guys seem to expect the correct item from each boss. The increased drop rate still follows rng to a degree. My lock got 8 items this week from coins while my hunter got 1 with 10 coins. I could definitely tell there was an increased drop chance and I got a few useful items (blood spirit and sha crystals) people need to just relax and not expect the perfect drop 100% of the time.
Here's the thing, Blizzard intends this to be a way to catch up but the problem is there is so much RNG involved. You are lucky to get something, you're even more lucky to get what you want. It was better back then when you could farm the hell out of dungeons to gear up for the new raid. This is ridiculous.
Well, i got 3 Items and was able to complete my Legendary Quest, so yeah....I'm fine lol :P
Did MSV and HoF on my alt DK yesterday, used a coin on every boss and got 0 drops, so yeah RNG is RNG. Realy not something to whine about. Hoping on some drops this week to increase my ilvl so I can go Terrace, and hopefully the new one soonish. But I can get a decent ilvl from Malevolent gear now (476 I think it was?), so that will help alot.
Hook 'till you're hooked!
I just saw that the drop rate for the old LFRs is now 30% and 16% for the current LFRs, so you'd be obviously looking at more than 2 pieces a week but let's assume you get unlucky with RNG and/or you'd be getting pieces you already have so you'd still be looking at 2 new pieces a week.
