    However, with the previous loot system, I stood a very good chance of getting something which would WF/TF and/or socket, coupled with a greater drop chance overall.

    If the GV is to remain, then it needs to be changed so that it can only offer one item per gear slot when opened.

    Maybe something around raid finder ilevel? Thats 187 atm I think? Or maybe normal raid gear level at 200. PS! Not sure about ilevel numbers.

    The loot table for badges can be more or less the loot tables from dungeons or unique so people farm them for apperance to.

    Its not needed to drop ALOT of badges everyday or every week, but something would be nice to gain from dungeon spams. The honor gear upgrade is rather nice and a good example. You start off with buying the blue gear and after getting enough honor, you can upgrade that gear to a certain ilevel. Makes doing random BGs worthwhile instead of just the one daily for 40 conquest.
    Honestly the "new" pvp system is probably what badges should ve like just for pve not pvp

    If you don't raid, Pvp or do M+, why should you get the gear?
    It ignores such insignificant forces as time, entropy, and death

    Not like they didn’t before..when the game had it’s largest subscriber base in it’s history...almost like the game was designed better back then

    Badge gear has always offered trash compared to actual good PVE gear.

    If you think saving 90 badges for 2-3 slots of 213 gear will make gearing amazing in not sure what to tell you.

    Either way, it makes sense. Less loot in M+ and raids, but better selection in weekly rewards. We just want the selection to be good. Pure RNG sucks, just look at Classic. There's bad luck protection in many of WoW's current systems, why not the vault as well?
    I remember a blue post back in BC where a dev discusses the "dubious honor" of having what he said disassembled, overanalyzed, and put back together into something entirely different and then sent back at him in the form of a "promise" Blizzard somehow owes the players.
    The most difficult thing for people to do is objectively look at something they don't like and be able to accept that it is not bad, that other people like it, and if it was changed to the way they'd like it that other people would not like it and want it changed back. The second most is to receive something they didn't want or ask for and be grateful for it, not immediately demand what they wanted instead.

    It was a way to get at least entry level gear and still progress even if say unlucky or you just prefer to do simpler stuff..it made EVERYTHING rewarding

    so lets say I run Mists 10 times this week for a chance at that sweet dagger. Will the great vault only have loot from MISTS or will it be from any other mythic dungeon?

    it doesnt matter if gear has subpar stats - its giving people the reason to log in into game .

    this system worked well for years - it was always a mistake to remove it.

    its the last moment to save wow and bring back badges .

    yup - even if you were unlucky in raid you got currency and got few pieces of raid gear.

    now its gone - and so are casuals.

    Ion made another WoD - because he hates casual players

    Ofc you can... most of my m+ and pvp is through pugs. You can even pug raids.

    i think the new concept is very very good. like it alot more then bfa concept because i dont feel forced to do the weekly mythic as only pvp-boi. on top of that i get 3 options per character (3 chars) each week and thats alot i guess. i had good and bad loot in it (2 times a staff for my rsham - come on blizz) but overall my gear improved every week so far and its nice that i can upgrade the pvp loot when i get higher pvp ranks so the old items from like the first week when my alts werent that high still matters.

    That is the whole point of this system. You don't have to do more then you want.
    then sadly i miss out on the one thing im lacking...a good weap since im still rocking a 200 and sime im still a trial unless i get a orb myself from the raid the vault is the best chance i have of getting 1 while means getting as may options i can sadly

    Another upgrade? Sounds like a pretty sweet deal. I've been getting 3 options every week and every week it's a clear upgrade. Even in dirty alts that I don't even care about I do an LFR wing. UPGRADES.

    sure you have 9 chances at 1 piece of better loot rather than 1 from the weekly chest. but m+ also rewarded much better loot in bfa that more than offset this. id much rather have the bfa system. its not close.
    Of course you would. Doing the easiest content for next to best rewards. Oh sorry. Infinitly grindable rewards plus next to best weekly reward for the easiest content.

    You mean where it lost the most subscribers ever where the era with the largest ever increase in subscribers is the era where we had the great vault. Use facts please, not feelings.

    No I mean wrath when the game had over 12 million active subscribers..the falloff was in cataclysm not wrath..I suggest you learn the facts of the games history

    And shadowlands JUST came out..lets see how high the numbers are in a couple of months to say nothing of years
