The loot you COULD have gotten.

Its silent loot from a boss.

Pretty much says;

"This is what dropped"
"You weren't eligible for it, just an FYI this is what it was"
"It will now go to someone else who was eligible for it"

Blizz doesn't just leave it there, it wasn't saying you won it, it was saying that is what you could have won, had you been eligible.

Someone else would have got the loot.

No!!!! Don't do this!!!

If it weren't for NOT-ELIGIBLE loot, I'd barely get any loot from LFR at all!

Actually untrue. Your loot rolls are separate from everyone else's. The intelligible loot quite literally gets wasted by going to pixel heaven. *sad face*

It's not good.


Acting from on high. Proclaims will not check in again because he thinks hes No. 1. Then proves hes not by doing exactly what he said he would not, Just to try to get the last word in in a conversation he claims he realizes is over.....

Yeah you may want to rethink that No. 2 position thing.

I'm more curious as to why it even rolls for you to give you a chance at loot when you're no longer eligable. Give it to the other people in the raid that are actually eligible as opposed to wasting loot on someone that has already done it, just to tell them LOLNOLOOTFORYOUBRO.

Your frustration is completely justified, Xeylas. This was not meant to happen and we fixed the issue with Patch 5.1.


What?

This has been happening since DS LFR... How are you saying it was unintended? o.o;

Friends ask me to run LFR with them, and I have to say, "No, I don't really feel like running on a treadmill while Blizzard dangles a metaphorical Twinkie in front of my eyes."


Accept now they don't make twinkies anymore :(

As a FYI, you winning or not winning loot has no bearing on whether anyone else wins loot. It's entirely personal. Theoretically, all people in the raid could win, or they all could lose. You're just rolling a dice. Doesn't matter what anyone else rolls.

"You are not eligible for the following loot because you have already looted from this boss." Or something along those lines.


qft. 2 weeks ago I was eligible for my first LFR run due to ilvls.

So I ran Mogu-whaterver...then ran it again cuase hey I could!

The bow drops the second go round and pops up telling me, basically, to F off.

yeah, owch that hurt!

We're all missing the bigger issue here!

Where's Blizzard still getting twinkies!?


Actually, Twinkies are still being made in Canada.

Also, anyone can bake their own home-made twinkies.

That is hilariously, soul crushingly cruel.


I remember seeing that a few times in Cata. Often I healed LFR twice, going with different people to help out/lend support and also just learning how to heal fail so I could be prepared for any raid situation when it came to the real thing.

Always made me die a little inside when I saw something I really needed yet was powerless to get it.

Just having one small window pop up that says "You are not eligible for this loot" would do it.
