    Flex Mode - Loot Question

    Scenario: You clear the 1. part of SoO with a raid of alts of your guild. Later on, you just switch one or two of the alts with main characters and clear again.
    As the 8 alts already killed the bosses in flex mode, they are not eligible to win epic loot again for this ID in flex mode.

    Question: Will the 2 mains now win loot for sure from every boss? Or will the 8 alts "roll" anyway but just win gold or something else if they were chosen again?

    you loot once per week, you saved to bosses not raid id , like lfr

    The loot system of Flex Mode is the same as LFR. All personal. You can't funnel a system you can't control.

    The question was, if the 2 mains will win items for sure (100%) due to the fact that the other 8 players (alts) already killed the bosses this week (--> ineligible for loot)?

    No, since the chance for loot is individual. It's entirely possible (but unlikely) that all or none get loot in LFR or Flex.

    No

    The boss doesn't have any loot. When it dies, if they are eligible each player rolls to see if they get loot. If they do, there is another roll to see what loot they got.

    Just to back up the above poster, our first flex boss kill (12 people all on their first kill) only one person got loot.

    Ok, thanks for all answers. Was on a wrong trip for loot assignment.

    Just thought like in 10m (every boss drops 2 items)... always 2 players will be selected to win loot, my fault

    Interesting thought though, worth exploring
