    Unhappy Ran Flex All Day: 12 Bosses - 12 Bonus Rolls - No Gear Dropped - All of it was Gold

    Seriously? I spent four hours today raiding SoO flex, and out of the 12 bosses, not one of them gave me a piece of gear. That's right, all bosses, with bonus rolls, all I got for it was gold.

    Remember that, for every time you double roll and get nothing, somewhere in the world there's a guy getting double heroic warforged loot off Garrosh.

    Well, this is a refreshing thread. What is there to even discuss? Did you really coin all 12 bosses by the way? Since the limit is 10, did you actually wait until you'd used three up and then turned in the weekly?

    With all that gold you got (~50g per coin) why not go buy a crafted belt to take your pain away.

    Statistics on Wowhead show that you are more likely to get a single piece of gear from a 24 chance drop run then you are to get a single piece of WF gear from four weeks of heroics.

    Pretty standard.

    It's bad enough that getting into Flex without already being 550+ means begging someone half the time, but then it refuses to drop anything on top of that.

    Funny thing about statistics. They're stats, not real world applications. Just because you have a 1/100 million chances of getting struck by a lightning bolt doesn't mean you won't, or the lottery, or whatever other fancy expression you want to use.

    I think I only got 2 drops from Flex the entire time I ran it, only to promptly replace those pieces with Ordos drops the following week. It happens, you aren't alone. I know it doesn't make you feel better but at least you know there are other's just as unfortunate.

    I did LFR with 4 different toons this week, nothing dropped even with extra rolls, just plain cold gold.

    I feel your pain.

    Big thanks to Shyama for the sig <3

    Not too sure what the point of the thread is other than just to say you had bad luck. Just know your chance each time it fails is increased by a certain percentage. Though I don't see how you could go 12 bosses without getting loot and I'd say your probably stretching it a little as one was probably an item you already had.

    Working as intended. Keeps you paying that sub fee for another week.
    Did you think we had forgotten? Did you think we had forgiven?

    On the plus side your luck protection has increased the chance you'll get loot from all those bosses next week. They REALLY should show that in-game.

    P.S. How much gold did you make?

    RNG in raids is a new and exciting topic.

    You get to do it for another 5+ months!!


    We all change, when you think about it. We're all different people all through our lives. And that's okay, that's good, you've got to keep moving, so long as you remember all the people that you used to be. I will not forget one line of this. Not one day. I swear. I will always remember when the Doctor was me.

    I won't forget that 30-in-a-row roll from MV to ToT LFR that was solid gold, including bonus rolls.

    Better than the old system where groups needed for their friends to trade.

    Just so you know, each failed attempt per boss increases your chance to get loot. What you should have done is picked out 3 or 4 bosses you really wanted something from and kept running and bonus rolling. Each time you bonus roll a boss loot table, the chance to get loot increases. It's a failsafe blizzard implemented. By you using your rolls evenly on all bosses really didn't help your cause much.

    I hear this a lot and it's simply not true. I have 538 ilvl with pvp gear and i always get invited to flex groups within 5-10 mins of queueing.
