After running a lot of LFR's... I've have yet to get any loot out of those bags, even with using my elder charms. I've seen a ridiculous number of complaints of duplicate loot. After 3 weeks of bags of "28 gold" I'm getting fed up that the effort I put into this, there zero results. I no longer see the point of it.
Blizz -- When will you fix the loot system to go back to the previous system, but refine need/greed per class and specialization. EX: Holy Pallys not rolling need on tank gear ect.
When the LFR version of Dragonsoul came out, I was pumped to have a chance to get some decent loot without having to save a certain number of hours, 2-3 times a week specifically to Raiding with the busy schedule that I had the time. And within that loot table, I wanted nothing more than to get my hands on Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps
As the weeks passed, I continued to have no such luck. Most of the time, the item never dropped, I was getting accustomed to seeing the Bow and the Caster Staff drop constantly. One time I saw 4 Pole Arms drop in one kill, and when Gurth actually DID drop, not only did I have to roll against the vast amount of plate DPS within the raid, but Blood DKs and Prot Paladins were eligible for the Need roll as well. Next thing I knew it was September 25th and it was time to move on, but I never did win a roll on that tentacle spawning beauty.
Point of the story is, this new system works, and it works damn well. RNG is RNG, it happens. Some people never see Ashes of Al'ar drop after grinding it for years, then a Guildy of yours attempts a kill for the mount and gets it on their first try.
At least when I go into a new LFR I know that if something is going to drop, it's going to be mine and I don't have to worry about losing the roll to half of the raid.
As for the 28.50, I'd rather get chump change than jack squat. And by the way, if you don't use a coin on a single boss and you get nothing but gold. 28.50 x 16 bosses is 456g. 8 bosses in Dragonsoul + no loot = Nothing. Sounds good to me.
Keep up the good work Blizz, I am lovin' this Expansion :)
