Hey all, I'm a GM and a raid leader. I really enjoy raiding in WoW and wanted to start doing 25 mans with my alt. Rather than recruiting 25 guildies to attend a raid I decided to host public DKP runs on my server. I chose DKP because I wanted to reward people for consistent attendance but also want to balance not screwing over new people who come into the raid.
I'd like to get some feedback on my loot system given the situation. I tried to make rules very clear cut and not loop-holey and non negotiable.
In addition I was wondering about the ethics of streaming the raids? Is that acceptable as long as I tell people I'm doing it first?
Getting a spot: We'll take the most geared and experienced people first.
Personally I disagree with your "you must take this if you have the highest dkp" system.
Sure people should share but if raider A who has 240 dkp (dedicated) is there and a necklace drops then no one really wants it too badly so he loses it and its thrust upon him. Then the next boss that axe he really wanted drops and raider B with 110 dkp gets it by default that seems a bit unfair to me.
The way I would recommend is a system of dkp roll>non dkp roll ms>non dkp roll os.
This would make it so people who have really been looking forward to something can get it and loot isn't wasted.
This is perfectly acceptable if they know about it beforehand. Some people get embarrased and very disturbed over being watched by people they dont know when sometimes its beneficial so people are more inclined to perform well.
Exactly this. If they aren't there for the first couple of weeks, and others are, they aren't going to see loot for a long, long time and will be put off from joining. Why bother raiding with you when the other people in the group will get everything?
