Heroic loot drops are ridiculous...

Dungeons, Raids and Scenarios
Atleast 75% of the drops are always mail, this isn't just me either. All my guildys as well as the people in my groups say it as well. It's bs.
My guildies say it's all leather.
75% of drops I see are cloth, truestorybro
I see a ton of leather and cloth. It's just one of those things where ya want an item so bad, if ya can't need on it, you hone into it. If ya can need on it - Well, then you're not complaining about loot.
It's not even that, I only need a couple pieces of gear, but its all bosses I don't even need loot from, it's just all mail.
It's usually seems like 75% of some kind of loot you can't use. When I start heroics, I might find that drops are mostly cloth.

Greener grass and all that.
All plate on my shaman.

You know what's funny? There's like 3 topics over the past few days, about how it only drops plate, or leather.

I somehow doubt you're all right. :)
I see mail alot qq
Maybe I missed it elsewhere but... is there any reason I can roll need on leather int/spi gear? Because I can, and I find that odd.

There's a bug, I haven't seen concrete evidence on why, but sometimes the system reverts to group loot over NB4G, has been happening ever since 5.04
I see cloth and mail, my elemental friend got a full enhance gear even though he will never play that spec.
One week of statistics definitely means the loot system is broken...

There will be other guilds that are having the same "unfair" drops for cloth, or plate, or leather as well. Maybe it is broken, maybe it isn't, but a week of data isn't enough to start shouting that the system is ridiculous!
Everywhere I look, I see confirmation bias.
I've seen threads posting about only ever seeing mail, I've seen threads about only ever seeing cloth, I've seen threads about only ever seeing DPS plate.

Exactly. People remember the times they got shafted on loot more than they remember when they got an upgrade. I was just whining in a dungeon with my guildies the other day about how I've run a specific dungeon for my helm over and over and it won't drop and how bad my luck is, yet I've got my two piece of two Sha kills, got my 470 direbrew trinket off the first run, got my archeo OH after 5 solves, and generally had good luck overall. With so many spots to fill, it's easy to forget about the upgrades along the way, but really hard to forget missing out on those last few items you need that never drop.

It's just so unbelievably easy to get loot at the moment. Possibility of 2 tier pieces and 100% chance of epic boots of Sha which is a joke to kill. Valor neck and ring at honored for Klaxxi and Lotus, more when you hit revered. Dungeons are generally reallllly easy to just burn through, so yeah it's tedious but it's not difficult.

You'll get your gear eventually. Everyone has different experiences with the loot drops. Personally I feel like I've seen a lot of drops for everyone on my runs, and have had decent luck with cloth. As far as my helm goes, I see a lot of spirit helms or non cloth items I can't use, but that doesn't mean the loot system is broken after one week of data.
