There are a wide variety of loot systems available and an even wider variety of raid groups that have to choose one.The best thing a raid leader can do is pick a system that seems to fit the culture of the raid group, and try it out. You have to take into account everyone in the raid group. You may have 9 or 24 people that are more than willing to pass to avoid being a loot hog, but if that one other guy isn't willing to pass, a simple /roll-and-don't-be-greedy system might not work.My advice to someone trying to find a loot system:Assess the culture of the raid group. Are you more casual/laid-back? Are you more focused on upgrading the raid equally to make content go by faster? Or are you more interested in rewarding participation and contribution?There are loot systems that fit all these profiles; /roll systems, Suicide Kings, Loot Council, DKP, EP/GP, etc. Just do your research and be flexible in the early weeks/months.If you plan on making a big change, I suggest waiting until a new tier of gear is released.
