that's misleading:"You can fight bosses multiple times but are only eligible for loot on the first kill."aren't you eligible every time until you actually win a piece of loot from that boss?

No. You get one chance a week in LFR. If nothing drops for you, you get nothing from that boss for the week.
12-12-2011 @ 4:18PM
No you only are eligible for loot the first time you beat the boss, regardless of whether or not you actually win something.

No, you are only elegible during the first kill, if nothing drops for you, too bad.

Thanks to Paragon and all the others that were exploiting the LFR, one shot at loot per boss, per week. Basically means that once you valor cap and run the LFR, you have nothing to do for the week.

@VSUReaperIt has always been like this, Blizzard did not implement the one loot per boss per week because of the exploit. Actually, the exploit was about getting around this limit.

And again I don't understand the confusion. Did people really think that Blizz was changing the game to guarantee you got loot every week?

@ JorgesMy understanding of the loot system was that I go in, kill the first boss, and dont win anything off that boss, I could keep coming in and killing that boss over and over again until I get something from that boss. Once I loot something from said boss, *then* I will no longer be eligible for the loot and auto pass on everything from that boss.In the first week, I killed the Shamman in the Eye of Eternity 2 times and was eligible to roll both times. If this is the way that the loot system was not supposed to work, then Blizz released a very poor, buggy system that hadn't been fine tuned. Or, as I said in my other post, Blizz had to change the rules so that people were not farming bosses to get decked out in full tier in one week by farming it with their guild.With the way it is now, once I do both wings and 2-3 heroic 5 mans, I have nothing to do PVE wise other than play alts I dont care about.

meant to reply to the next post....@VSUReaperI'm sorry that you are too stupid to read the patch notes, or this site, or any other site that talked all about Raid Finder before the patch came out and then after the patch came out and even through the Paragon exploits. It was stated clearly and many times that you would only be eligible for to kill a boss in RF and get loot once a week, not kill until you get loot. Any failing in your understanding on how the system works is entirely your fault, since everyone else understood it after reading it once. kthxbai!

Going out and having a social life is out of the question then? I hear there's this thing called NATURE and SUNLIGHT, but they might just be an urban myth...

My understanding of what Blizzard intended is that once you roll on loot from a given boss, whether or not you win the roll, you are ineligible for rolls from the same boss in other LFR instances for the remainder of the week. Being eligible to roll on an item but passing would not lock you out of future drops. Except for the extremely arcane bug that the competitive raiding guilds discovered, this appears to be exactly what was released. Is this correct?
12-13-2011 @ 10:54AM
@RajahNo that is not correct.If you were eligible for loot, by having been present when a boss was killed then you will be locked out from any loot from it that week. Even if did not roll either by passing or simply because you were not able to.Otherwise you could simply pass and repeat multiple times during the week until you got a specific item of loot.
