Have you accepted RNGesus as your Lord and Savior?

Pray with me. Pray to RNGesus

Oh Lord RNGesus, accept my offering of incense and these non believers salty tears. And bless me with a 370+ Offhand.

Please finish heroic uldir

Non-Believer! Punish him RNGesus!
Next time invite me to your mythic runs, btw I have 0 io. It'll be great.

This is exactly how it worked all last expansion, so I really can't sympathize with anyone who is reacting harshly to this.
Especially because its absurdly powerful for the effort you have to put in.

Complaining about free gear really is one of my pet peeves.

However, Ion did state at Blizzcon that they had some ideas to implement some type of cooldown on the reward types.
For example, if you got boots last week, you can't get boots again for a while.

That's not a great solution, because you may only WANT boots, but at least it will function well enough for the early weeks when everyone needs just about everything.

Until then, please keep the source of the item in perspective.
Its free and gives loot far more powerful than any free source should for doing a single dungeon.
you are nuts. i have been trying to get azerite pieces for weeks. all my rl friends want to do is push m+ and i cant catch up. i hate this system. game isnt fun. and no im not gonna go raid for hours and hours
I finally decided last week that trying to find a group was more effort than it was worth. I don't go to the RL casino, and I don't like the loot casino either.

I am currently sitting at the least motivation to complete current content at any time that I've been actively subscribed.

Man, why can't I choose wtf I want to get? Like, what's so hard about having a token that I could redeem?
You'll keep coming back each week to pull the slot machine's lever.

Blizzard's only goal is to prolong reward just long enough that you don't quit, but no sooner.
Yeah back in vanilla you always got drops from bosses and it was always an upgrade to the slot you needed an upgrade in.

Ion mentioned that there is (colloquially named) streak protection in the works to help mitigate these kinds of issues. Unfortunately, I don't remember if he said when it would be ready though.


You would have thought, after having to implement a bad luck protection for legendaries in Legion, they would have realized this would happen, and had one ready for this.
Back in vanilla bosses dropped certain SLOTS. You may not get a hunter drop but sure as hell u knew what boss drops helm/shoulders/chest etc.

Now you have to rng a drop
Rng the drop is in the right slot you need
Rng its a better upgrade via warforge or titanforge (NOT IN VANILLA BTW its nice you pick and choose facts)
Vanilla had a much better system.

Oh...and it still had Master loot
Not only are you guys constantly pulling the lever, but giving them money through the cash shop, so the lost subs don't hit them as hard as it should.

RNGesus,
You did not provide me with an offhand like I asked.

But gave me a 380 Staff instead!

BOO YA!!!

PRAISE BE RNGESUS!!!
I hopped off the weekly +10 train like 3 weeks into beta for Azeroth. This is one of the reasons why lol.

You want the gear but don't want to do raids or M+.

That's not how it works.....

wrong, re read what i said. maybe when this rng happens to you, you'll finally understand? the system is too redundant . the fact you compare bfa m+ with azerite armor to legion m+ [which was cheese based on the rng legendaries you got] kinda questions your merit anyway.
