I would rather prefer Blizzard to drastically tone down RNG in gearing.Mainly because I really dislike RNG rewards. So much that I can't bring myself to farm any random reward - including raid loot. Unless I'm having a legitimately good time raiding with friends, I would rather do a bunch of random Heroics for the VP, and the raid drops be damned.Second, because making players able to better choose their rewards in some way allows for a quite wider variety of rewards without loot tables becoming too large. One way to do that is with bosses dropping currency and having a related vendor, like VP/JP work right now, but it's not the only way. Quests triggered by an incomplete item dropping (like Quel'Delar) are one way. Another might be joining a drop with a vendor bought or player crafted item. A third one would be to have some kind of trade-back possible, either by giving the item back or by having a quest that can change some characteristics of the dropped item. And so on.

Really, Blizzard just needs to revamp its loot system all together. When I kill a boss, it would be nice if I could make a choice, roll on a piece of gear, choose a random loot bag (something similar to what they offer up in the LFG), or forgo those and just get extra VP/JP.A system like this would offer everyone the type of reward they prefer.
