    What's worse than getting 28g from LFR
    Getting 27g.

    Ba dum tiss

  2. #62
    Out of 3 weeks of running all lfrs, all the bags ive gotten, only 1 of them have given me a blood spirit.

    And yes, its even worse when you get an epic that you already have and or have better of and it vendors for less than 28 gold.

    Or, running the same lfrs and getting the same drops each week with no change to the pattern to get different drops

    lets also take a look at the attitude that the bonus rolls have fostered. before these bonus rolls were introduced you basically just sucked it up and if you didnt get anything, you didnt get anything. while 28g is a pretty insignificant amount of money at least its something, at least its something from an extra bonus roll that prior to this expansion you wouldnt have even received.

    dont get me wrong, im all for people getting gear. it is basically what WoW is all about (or any other mmo really) but i feel like (and i cant stress this enough, this is purely my opinion and how i feel) these bonus rolls and this whole "bad luck streak" thing will cause a lot of people to eventually feel entitled and will only get worse and worse until basically you will be guaranteed a piece of loot from every boss you kill.

    again, just my opinion. im not a loot nazi, i dont think the super hardcore should be the only ones to get decent end game gear, i just think its a dangerous hill theyre flirting with going down
    you of course completely forgot to mention that not only other catch up mechanisms were severely nerfed, new LFR system itself is slower than normal system due to people not having less competition when other obtain their gear.

    you know the difference between early and late DS lfr? you got half the stuff basically by default, since alot of people didnt want it anymore. basically the only competition whatsoever were tiers and trinkes´ts/weps from deathwing. you know the difference between early and late 5.1 lfr raids? there is none.

    I agree with him, LFR is there for casuals to see the content after all. But all I hear about it is "Buhu, I only got 3 epics this weekQQQQQ", thats the part thats getting old.

    Please refrain from expressing outrage over mathematical conclusions when you don't understand probability. Any alleged discrepancy between LFR loot and normal loot has nothing to do with "having less competition".

    Getting the same fucking chest piece 4 times in a row. I get that some of you were douche bags in DS and thus we can't have a system that involves any sort of trading but I was a good guy and would often trade shit I didn't need to people who did.

    And the tiny fraction for whom heroic raids are currently well tuned? Too bad,so sad! With the arterial bleed of subs the fastest it's ever been, the vanity development that gives you guys your own content is no longer supportable.

    You know the bracers with one secondary also have a socket and have more of that secondary stat than two secondary stat bracers would have, making them pretty much identical, right?

    Leaving LFR/world boss and repair bill is higher than 28g

    Now I'm gonna take you all back to the glorious days of DS. I, the humble rogue, wanted Vial of Shadows. Who dropped Vial of Shadows? Many! Did I get it? No. How many bosses did I kill?

    LFR:
    Morchock 10
    Zon'ozz 11
    Yor'sahj 12
    Hagara 12
    Gunship 13

    Normal
    Morchock 7
    Zon'ozz 12
    Yor'sahj 9
    Hagara 9
    Gunship 13

    Heroic
    Morchock 11
    Zon'ozz 4
    Yor'sahj 6
    Hagara 3
    Gunship 3

    That's 123 kills. Fuck my luck

    When you run through a whole LFR and need upgrades for every slot except one, use coins on every boss, and the only thing you win is a downgrade for that precise slot.

    Winning nothing is one thing, but that's just fking torture...

    You must of missed the memo. LFR is now the "catch-up" gearing process for new / returning players instead of 5 man heroics.

    17 kills on Shek'zeer, 15 kills on Tsulong, 8 kills on Will along with coin rolls on every boss since 5.2 and my Holy Pally still has a blue weapon.

    Naturally all my runs through ToT have resulted in jack shit too. Don't get me wrong, plenty of other gear has dropped (I have 4P T14 on both MS and OS) but that weapon is frustrating as hell.

    People complaining about Dailies.
    I'm neither Pro or Anti Flying, I just have a different opinion on the matter.

    Oh i rather get gold than that crappy lfr loot, unless said loot is worth more.

    Dragon Soul, with the bloody stupid OP trinkets that were demanded for PvP (as a Warlock, it was cunning for me). I have over 100 kills on normal and hc for the first 6 bosses (excluding LFR here) and I never saw it drop, not once (well, in LFR. 3 times, all of them lost to someone with minimal understanding of the game). I don't mind random loot systems that fuck me over, as long as there isn't a specific piece of loot that is considered mandatory for your class in competitive settings. LFR is just fine, some weeks you got nothing, some weeks you get plenty.

    wat? make some sense next time.

    Of course with normal system, people having gear already makes your chances higher, the new system doesnt care if someone already got the loot or not. when I was solo for protector token in whole 25man, i had higher chance to win than when there were 12 people for protector.

    And when there were 15, you had a much lesser chance. The fact that you had a higher chance when you got lucky is contingent on the low probability of being in a small sub-group. The fact that you don't take this small probability into account is the misunderstanding of probability.

    I think the drop chance of the damned coins in normal TOT should be higher, considering the bosses are much harder than LFR. What they should do is increase the coins cap per week and everytime you get 28g you should have a chance to get 1 extra coin.

    I stopped doing the math on it, but my luck has been subpar in LFR and bonus rolls from the very beginning, even in DS I got way less loot then I statistically should have gotten. In DS I could at least get guildies to roll and win stuff for me, now, there is nothing. ToT is nothing new so far. Too lazy to look at bosses killed and bonus rolls made, but I have 1 piece of gear so far in the time it's been out, so... >.<
