To me it's fairly obvious from the wording. 'progressively' would indicate something like 01+basechance on the 2nd roll, 04 on 3rd, 0.1 on 4th, 0.18 on 4th, 0.28 on 5th, 0.4 on 6th, etc etc, up to around 0.89 @ 10 (assuming a 10% base chance)
Nah thing is there is idea how to exploit it, simply by tossing up in old LFRs or normals and keeping buff on yourself, than roll to ToT and toss with increased chance.
Not sure though it would work.
What happens if you won on a coin roll in LFR ? Then your increased chance of the item you wanted in normal / heroic mode would be gone (I assume the increased win chance from failed rolls resets to zero once you have a successful coin roll) and you'd have wasted all your coins on a worthless LFR item.
I also assume elder charms and Mogu coins would be seperate so you couldn't just use elder charms to increase your win chance on mogu coins. Even if they aren't seperate..... The chance to win with elder charms in 5.1 raids is already over 30% so there would be a high chance of wasting your increased chance of a specific TOT item on some worthless piece of 5.1 LFR gear.
Bonus rolls, Treasures of the Thunder King, Amber Encased Treasure Pouch, Cache of Mogu Riches, and Dividends of the Everlasting Spring now have a small chance to award a larger than usual amount of gold.
Protection for bad luck streaks have been added to bonus rolls. Each bonus roll that does not provide loot has a progressively better chance to award loot to the player.
only 2 changes: bad luck protection (which isn't a flat buff) and a small change to get a bigger gold reward.
Its a bonus roll an extra chance to get free shit. I am not sure why all the complaining? You have bad luck, that sucks but the game is based around RNG.
My 10 man raid in the previous 4 weeks has seen 17 vanquishers tokens out of 20 drops, 6 of them wasted or offspeced. Shit happens.
RNG is RNG.
What is it you would like? To do some dailies that take 20 minutes get 3 free rolls a week that always work and let you pick your item from the bosses loot table?
Blizzard is pandering so much to this whining this might actually come to fruition in 5.4.
I would also get HabeebiT http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/habeebit or another mod that shows the loot your eligible for based on the spec you queued for. I think a lot of people just roll when there isn't an item they want anyways.
This functionality is provided in the default UI. Open the raid journal, click on ToT, click on the boss, and set the filter to your class/spec.
A better chance at loot is nice but it would be even better if it didn't give you the same loot you already have.
Every time I coin meg I get the neck or a sack of tears/gold, which I already have. No offhand, no boots, no trinket, just that damn neck.
