One thing I really want to see is how loot will be handled in the LFR. I really hope it's either some improved need before greed system, or else it's done as individual loot bags like seasonal bosses.BTW:- One of the things I hate the most in WoW is looting in groups. I really dislike the need for loot rolls, and the stress it puts on groups. I have seen whole raids break apart over a single ninja loot. Anything that removed the need to ever roll for loot against raidmates again would be really welcome for me.- I don't exactly care about loot per see. Not even for appearance; the last piece of tier gear I actually liked the looks was back in Vanilla. I only care about gear due to the fact it's a requirement to do high end content, but I would actually be happier if there was no gear evolution in raids whatsoever - say, if the pieces from the heroics/rep grinds were BIS during the whole expansion, and raid gear was just fancier sidegrades.- The issue of just one person not getting gear in a raid is not exactly one of gear, but of being treated fairly. If a group treats me like dirt, I don't want to be around them, gear or no gear. In fact, if I was badly treated, I wouldn't hang around even if every last piece of loot went to me.- Doing old content is not an ideal proposition for another reason: due to higher levels / stat inflation, most of them lack any kind of challenge. I most likely wouldn't want to go back to old raids even if the gear drops were the same quality.- Content should be done because it's fun. Sincerely, if the only reason I'm doing something is for the gear, I stop and go do some other thing, perhaps even play another game. If I find I don't have fun getting the gear, and I need the gear to open further play, I leave permanently.- One of the main reason I'm really waiting for GW2 is the complete lack of loot rolls. All loot is individual, and most/all pieces can also be gotten by tokens (thus making said pieces of gear achievable even if the RNG conspires against the player).
