The loot you COULD have gotten.

I also agree. So far I have only had it show me the gold bags since I don't run thru bosses I've already done often, but I got DC'd yesterday just b4 the Sha in ToES and I am dreading rerunning all 3 other bosses just to get to him. I really cannot see the value, especially with the loot system in LFR personalized as it is, it feels like they are personally rubbing it in your face, just for doing something that actually helps the system function. We know the loot table, We know what could drop. In this case, ignorance really is bliss.
I've noticed something. Last week, I cleared the LFRs after reset.

Later that day, ran them again with the guild. To help out.

I know I can't get any gear from it, but after killing a boss, a little window popped up that said,

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

And in the box was a picture of a tier token.

Is that really necessary? They couldn't just not have anything happen after you kill the boss? I like running LFR when I'm bored with pals. But now, I don't want to, because it's a sad moment when Blizzard says, "Hey, we were going to give you this. BUT. You already looted from the boss this week. So we'll just keep it. Thought we'd let you know though."

Please. Take this out.

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."

It just seems a bit redundant.

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

That is hilariously, soul crushingly cruel.


It's the bittersweet lesson that you may not get all the things you want. It's the mega jackpot symbols lining up Above the pay-line. It's pitching forward for the finish line but the girl next to you had a bigger nose. It's the human condition that faces these failures, falls down then pick themselves up and go on.

This is the plane wreck that you walked away from. This is the broken heart that finds new love. This is Life.

How is this any different from running LFR Dragon Soul and seeing 4 items with red circles over them after a boss died?

You had to win the roll for the DS stuff anyway. The new LFR system is yours alone, no one else can win it against you. There's a difference between something you probably wouldn't' have won anyway, and something you definitely would have received.

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


Ah! I did not know this!

I wasn't sure if it was something that people were commonly noticing. Thank you for your response!

Just know that you're number two.

You think thats annoying? how about the same window appearing with the tier and you havent looted that week yet
it is true, that is kinda cruel (i do not think they meant to be) and i think they should take that part out.
It's too bad that there isn't an annoying game show announcers voice, loudly saying:

"Let's Show Her What She Could Have Won, Bob!"

"Well, Xeyla... if this had been your first LFR this week..."

Edit: for the usual spelling mistakes.
We're all missing the bigger issue here!

Where's Blizzard still getting twinkies!?
Wow, that's bad. Totally agree OP.
