What I have noticed is a correlation between Valor cap and drops, before I hit cap I got armor drops, sigils etc... after I hit Valor cap no armor pieces, or sigils drops, just coin bags from the last 9 bosses I was part of killing.
The RNG gods must totally hate me because I've gone thru about 8 coin rolls on 2 toons the past 2 weeks(doing normal), and did not give me one item. I hate the god of RNG so much!!!!
it's a known fact that certain letter combinations in character names causes slightly different odds with rolls.
Why do people keep saying this and making threads about it ? This has been going on all expansion lol
Random is Random and is still random even if the randomness screws you up the rear end.
Nope. Just RNG.
I've been running flex/norm/Ordos on my mage for months now and still have an LFR neck. I haven't even seen one drop.
Yet, I hit 90 on my shaman and within 3 weeks have almost completely geared her, including 3 pieces of Ordos gear.
R N G hooray!
I know it's been said but rng is random. I myself ran lfr to help my husband's alt gear on my main who is geared and received 5 pieces of loot from 1st wing alone (1 on normal roll for every boss and 1 on coin roll hoping to get a pet off Sha). When I ran on a brand new 90 alt the same day who could use damn near any gear out of there, I couldn't get anything with several coin rolls. Go figure, right?
rng is not rng, blizzard intentionally watches for what you need/want to drop and make sure it doesn't so you keep playing = more money for them. simple right?
I get it, people make mistakes. But there is a difference between "ah shit i put in int and mastery instead of parry and mastery gem" and "Don't tell me how to play my character. I do what I want!" and "I don't see any issue with gemming int as a rogue lol xD"

Enough with RNG. If i put in more effort to do damage and avoid shit, i should at least be rewarded with the higher chance to get gear.
So little logic in many of these arguments. It often seems like RNG is some sort of religion that people "believe" in without any evidence that it actually exists. All bow to RNGesus! Blizz says it's random, so it must be! And then there are the people that say "I got 3 items last week", so my anecdotal evidence negates your anecdotal evidence and therefore you are wrong and I am right.
Truth is we have no way of knowing if Blizz adjusts the drop rate from time to time. In addition, computer generated "random" numbers are not truly random. A seed number must be generated first.

I sometimes go week or two without seeing anything drop but that's rng for you. Hopefully they may up the drop rates just before the expansion
5 times...I tried across 3 characters and I give up after 1 and a half runs of SoO with some ToT mixed in, which is why I'll never finish grinding RNG for my cloak.
There's only so much I can take of..
"stop dping in Defensive stance"
"get the ads"
"Run from the mines"
"kill one engi..no not that one...why did you stop killing the engi?"
"Wow you noobs, the tank who is in half PVP half DPS gear with a shield and no enchants or PvE glyphs is completely screwing everything up but I don't want to wait for a new one so I'll blame DPS who will blame healers!"
"you're all terrible so I'm going to show you the social skills I learned from LoL and XBL as you tremble before my 20k dps with a 540 ilvl as a hunter!"
"need a tower group"
"need a tower group"
"need a tower group"
"need a tank for the tower group"
"need a healer for the tower group"
"why did the tank die in the tower? oh! went before the demolisher with a healer who was AFK!?"
"It's a maze, avoid the big eye beam"
"seriously..it's a maze..look if you can't figure it out follow me!" (half the raid dies repeatedly)
"Stand in the feed young green stuff so healers won't heal you cause they think you're standing in stupid" (same with the 3 pandas and thunder king)
"hey guys I'm going to explain nicely the mechanics as opposed to being snarky and yelling at you to go watch a youtube video for LFR..."
"screw u man! I play how I want"
"Oh look it's captain LFR, did I do it right this time capt LFR?"
"I bet you get all the chicks doing LFR right"
"dude shut up it's LFR"
"I don't need to listen to you"
otherwise RNG is RNG and it's a bastard
