Next Reset - Legacy Loot Coming to Legion Instances
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
With scheduled weekly maintenance the week of March 31, we’re enabling Legacy loot rules in Legion raids and dungeons.

We’re reached that point in an expansion where the content from the previous expansion no longer requires a full group, and the rewards are primarily sought by transmog collectors. With this change, Legion raid and dungeon encounters will drop a fixed quantity of class-agnostic loot. Today, if you and one other player enter Emerald Nightmare on Mythic difficulty and kill Nythendra, it’s unlikely that you’ll receive any loot, since drop rates normally scale to the number of players. After this change, Nythendra will always drop 5 items from her loot table, regardless of your group size.

Dungeons and many of the lower-difficulty raid bosses in Legion are already soloable by well-equipped Battle for Azeroth characters, though some bosses, especially on Mythic difficulty, may still require you to bring a few friends. Nonetheless, this should amount to a great increase in the availability of Legion transmog gear.

See you there!

    Of course it wasn't good enough, because it was a lie. There has never been a point where you are guaranteed to get at least two pieces, currently Legion content gives a single item ~20% of the time and never gives multiple items.


    Giving them the benefit of the doubt, I think he was confusing soloing old content with running current content with a minimum size raid.

    I really don't know much on this since I never bothered to run Legion stuff since I knew it wasn't on legacy loot rules. I do, however, remember the pain of trying to run DS through HFC LFRs during Legion. Gotta love having a chance to get one piece of gear in LFR from the same boss you get ~5 pieces from on the other 3 diffs. Once they added legacy loot I had all the mog in a matter of weeks. /yay

    Cringe. They make a stupid rule of "previous xpac content is current content" just to boost their Engagement Indicators, they remove it (kinda) and you say we should make them an Altar? It's not a QoL fix, they are half-ass reversing a dumb decision

    Make sure you don't cut or scratch yourself. That much salt would be extremely painful. You must be a blast to be around with that kind of negative outlook.

    Of course lol, why even bother until legacy loot is enabled? I don't expect to be in BFA raids until 11.0

    Legacy Loot applies to all difficulties, LFR included. You can try it with Draenor.
    But from a logical standpoint, it wouldn't make sense whatsoever to have legacy loot rules disabled while the higher difficulties have it enabled.
    One of the reasons for opening Legion Raids for legacy loot is because the big majority can be soloed. LFR is the only difficulty right now that allows you to solo every raid and boss.

    I think Legion legendaries, Argus trinkets and tmog weapons from Maiden, Aggramar and Argus will work the same way as before. They weren't loots from bosses, they were programmed as a kind of "pop up loots" or whatever we should call them. I may be wrong tho.

    So no argument, just an edgy comment. You know I'm right.

    Imagine shilling for free.

    You have no argument to refute, though. Just your feels that anything you don't like bad and anyone disagrees with you is a shill. You're not looking to discuss anything.

    That's cool, but we still can't solo some bosses (Imonar, Aggramar if you're slow, Shivarras), and in LFR you still can't fight the 3rd boss...

    Yeah, I was hoping they'd give it their full adjustments.

    The legacy loot change was nice, but it's kinda of silly to leave the relics in the loot tables. Too often more than half the drops are relics, getting 4 relics and a ring is kinda annoying.

    So, you don't really know what bigoted means, huh.

    When you go into a situation with your mind made up that the opposing party is already wrong and evil and anything they do will be twisted to kick you in the nuts even if they technically give you what you asked for isn't bigoted?
