    Droprates SoO increased?

    Just read this:
    "can you comment on SOO increased LFR drop rate. Are these statistics accurate?
    We view LFR each tier as having a finite lifespan whether you finish your gear or not, so we might as well give you the gear. (Source)"

    Have they increased droprates in SoO? Not even all the wings are open yet.
    Or are they planning to increase it as the we go along?

    First time I read anything about higher droprates in SoO.

    I would be happy if they did increase the droprates, that's nice for gearing alts and so on.

    They are talking about the baseline chance of getting an item from an LFR boss.

    In t14/15 it was something like 16% whilst the content was current, in SoO it's 25%.

    It would be kinda ridiculous to maintain the same drop rates while considerably bumping down LFR ilvl at the same time. Even fewer people with a brain would do LFR.

    i hope so, ive ran every LFR wing on 2 characters since SOO released, used maximum tokens every week, and ive got 2 items so far, one item on my hunter, and one item on my monk. i am either very unlucky or the drop rate was like 2%
    Too cool for a signature

    Droprate can be 99% and you can still run it 500 times and get nothing, probability is a bitch.

    Ran LFR on my alt shaman and got gear from every single boss. Which was a shocker, because I went 6 weeks in ToT LFR without a single piece of gear.

    Guessing they changed it because LFR gear is crap anyway. It's not even as good as the timeless gear.

    I think they want people upgrading quickly in LFR and then getting into flex/normal raiding.

    That sucks ._. I went through 8 bosses and got 2 leather shoulders, 2 leather gloves, 1 fist weapon, 1 Neck and 1 leather boots.

    Went through 8 bosses again and got 2 AoC trinkets and a waist..

    This is great!
    I remember running lfr for weeks and only getting gold. 25% isn't bad.

    Just unlucky. I've done it on two. On one, I won nothing. On the other, I won gold on every roll but I won an item on every boss - shoulders, 450 - 528 bow upgrade, and the "30% cooldown reduction" hunter trinket. Was sooo pleased

    I'm glad to see a slight buff in drop rates. I agree with Blizzard on this one: the tier will not last longer just because people are forced to run it even more to get any kind of gear. If anything, I'd rather seen 30 - 40%. A lot of us have a lot of alts that we'd gear up, keeping the LFR alive longer than the normal/heroic raid tier would.

    I really hope that as time goes by and the next patch comes, the rates will be increased.

    It's just the base line drops compared to T15. I forget who did the research on it but I think it was on average ~10% higher.

    Drop rates are great...I get to have the same item 2-3 times now. Not a new item, just something I already have. YEAH ME!

    I won't notice this "buff" to drop rates.
    I do lfr, flex, some reg.
    No one drop this week from either. Or last week. Celestials is on week 4 with nothing. Quite common for me.
    Nice to know though.

    Don't be so selfish, now.
    OT: I've done the first wing of LFR a few times before my sub ran out. across 4 toons doing the first 4 bosses up to once., i've only won 3 pieces of loot.

    The higher drop rate may be evidence that the next expansion is closer than we think.

    Or it may be that progressive nerfs are incoming, so they want everyone to move up to Flex/Normal/Heroic and will stretch out the tier that way.
