Is the only way to get the Elder Charm Coins is by doing dailys by getting 90 of the good coins and turning them into 3 elder...? that sort of forces u into dailys if so.. because u know people want that extra chance in Raid to get the gear so your know there going do dailys to get a silly coin that doesnt even help one bit gg..
"Gear drops in raids like it always has."
"I like gear like I always have."
"But I want bonus chances at that gear."
"I have to do something to earn bonus chances at that gear?!"
"I don't want to do something to earn bonus chances at that gear!"
"That thing I don't want to do that would earn me bonus chances at that gear, doesn't earn me bonus chances at that gear!"
Let me know if that's an accurate summary, as well as what you're talking about. o.O
one thing to keep in mind that the 'gear drops in raids like it always has'
should be worded more along the lines of 'gear drops in raids like it never has before ever in the history of world of warcraft'
as the loot is bound to each person as compared to it dropped like it has.... every.. single.. expansion since vanilla !
with all other raids you can have a piece of gear drop, see it, look at it, gaze longingly upon it and /moan at it if you feel the need.... only to see it be taken by another random person. OR to a buddy who you /GRRRRRRRRatz! to
but the next week that same item drops and you go through all the stages of the after effects of Bloodlust (on a proper kill lol) and OH MY GOD !! this time, the buddy or random person would not need that particular item = it is yours WOOT! VS the 'Bindings of the Windseeker
' system that you have implemented with looking for raid MoP edition
you could run molten core till the end of time and never see those bindings drop(got a buddy who had ran it weekly for three years and has not even seen a binding yet... while I run it and get two of the same binding on my druid x-x and the sword on my warrior x-x)
the 'old' LFR system with Dragon soul is much preferable in my opinion as you can increase your odds by running with other people (much like you would if you were hoping to win a mount from a raid such as EoE, keep running as a group till you all get it) .
and sure I suppose it could be said that 'it is not fair for those who dont have friends' ..*insert foreveralone.jpg* too bad for them? lol buy 'friends' in trade to run lfr for the particular item your hoping for (i made a group that would run weekly and help each other get exactly what we needed, i needed cunning, one needed the staff another needed the dagger and we would run it each week till we got one.)
It helped foster comradery on my dead server between the last of the player-base and was an event that we all enjoyed partaking in as more and more people got their gear they would keep joinging just for the hilarity that ensued as we would try out crazy tactics on lfr bosses all the while helping benefit the SERVER.
As it is now, yeah.... you have TERRIBLE odds of winning loot and... even if you beat those terrible odds, you unlock even more odds to face of hoping that you win Item B instead of item A that you already have and.. possibly have already had multiple times over (if you somehow got 'lucky' with the RnG gods)
Especially since x-x the looks from LFR look far more bad @ss than the normal/heroic items for some classes and once the Xpac ended... or you wanted to level to 90 (or even 86) you are locked out of LFR forever! (unlike normal/heroic modes which you can go back and grind with 5-10 people or so for 10/25m of older raids. and even if you did camp out at 85, you basically have to have 24 other people on your server/friends list who also camp out at 85 and are willing to do LFR... because the default LFR Dragon soul que will NEVER happen as it is now)
blah blah rant over, feel free to nit pick at every other thing, but only every other thing lol.
and since i linked bindings, is only fair to link :Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker
