How about that increased chance?

Patch 5.2 notes: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/8896363/

The chance of getting personal loot in Raid Finder and the chance of a successful bonus roll in Raid Finder have been greatly increased for the following raids, Mogu'shan Vaults, Heart of Fear, and Terrace of Endless Spring.


I don't know if I have the worse luck, or what, but I don't see this change at all. I have run Terrace of Endless Spring 3 or 4 times this week already. On my first go around I used coins, along with my first rolls. 2nd, 3rd and 4th times I have used coins.

Specifically I have been using my coins on Sha of Fear, with the hope that Shin'ka, Execution of Dominion drops. Guess what? NOTHING!!!

I have run Terrace at least twice a week, if not more, since it came out...and I have NEVER had that piece drop. Now with the "increased chance" and using coins...still nothing.

Makes me wanna cry.

Yes, this is a QQ thread. Flame on.
RNG is Kurosawa.
10 bosses

7 drops

RNG is _

by the way, can't you only run a raid once a week and get gear from it?
Despite the increase it's still random. Could be a 90% chance and there's always the possiblity you could do a dozen runs and not see it. The original drop chance was 15% though and I think I remember hearing they doubled it to 30%. So it's higher, but nothing guaranteed to give you gear every time

Yah, I just find it very frustrating.

You can run a raid as many times as you want. On the FIRST go around you get your free roll for the week, plus you can use a coin. Once you've cleared a boss, the only way to get loot is to use a coin...which I have done week after week on Sha.

huh, didn't know that...interesting to know, I actually have something to do now until next week...
i ran HoF LFR today and got a piece of gear on almost every boss without the rolls, ive seen the changes implemented but i have had some real id friends message me "higher chances my @$$
Random distribution curves can be interesting. Mathematically, it's (unlikely but) entirely possible for someone to flip a coin and always get heads.

Our developers are aware of and looking at ways to address outlier cases in Raid Finder where even a greatly increased chance to drop isn't enough.

I appreciate the reply. Makes me feel a little better. Thank you.

Should introduce a 3rd coins. The "I have run this place so many times, and have yet to see the piece of loot I want" coin...or something like that.

I don't know. Just trying to be positive.

maybe a coin that detects what gear you're wearing and gives you an ever so slightly higher chance to drop something that is a higher item level than what you're wearing?

say a boss has a 483 weapon, shoulders, and belt on his loot table

you're wearing a 489 belt and shoulers, and 476 weapon. this coin will detect this and give the weapon a slightly higher chance over the belt and shoulders to drop
I think I have just the worst luck. lol

Anyway, off to bed and I'll try again tomorrow.

Good night.

Yea, I finally got my sha-touched weapon on a 5th run in a week using Greater charms on Lei Shi only.

It's nice to know these things.

OP: Bummer man... bummer. Hang tough, you'll get some gear, once the RNG gods stop hating you and turn their ever hateful eyes on someone else.
Rygarius have you ever mistaken Critho for a big rat? I'd imagine it would be pretty awkward when you realize you might have snatched your friend for lunch by mistake.
I'm the opposite.

For 3 weeks, the only thing that dropped for Bitsi were chest and necklace. Which I did not need, as I had the crafted robes (though I did replace that with the dropped ones, as I preferred the secondary stats) and the event necklace.

I got lucky this week and got a couple items, but yea, still annoying. How they expect us to hit ilvl480 without item upgrades or dailies I'll never understand. They've stated they consider dailies OPTIONAL and should not be required to hit ilvl480... but unless you get EXTREMELY lucky in HoF and ToES LFR, you could spend years and never hit ilvl480.
