Guild wars 2 has by far the best loot system. Everyone works together to accomplish something and everyone gets a reward. No competition or drama among friends, just teamwork and group success. WoW's system is old and tired.

that sounds like a good system, but in WoW it'll just get everyone geared too quickly and people will get bored and stop playing. though, people get bored of running the same dungeons over and over again (troll dungeons burned me out) and just quit because the lack of gear upgrades. everyone should be compensated for their role, since it took everyone in the group to take down the boss. it sucks going in the raid finder with 24 strangers only to not get any loot and just try again the following week. sure, i got very lucky and won 5 drops in a week(on one toon i might add), but i havent received a drop since, and maybe rolled a few times. but i just gave up on it since i didnt wanna burn myself out of the raid content before my guild was ready for progression.

This system might work for LFR (given how much drama surrounds the current distribution of loot), but for normal/heroic mode raiding incoming is right - it would lessen the life of most raids by gearing people too quickly.

Of course I still have to see the game, but GW2's combination of a loot system without loot rolls, and raids that won't require benched players, is almost sure to pull me away from WoW raiding permanently. Why face drama over loot and raid spots when I could be having just fun instead?BTW: I hate loot rolls with a passion. So much that even without GW2, I'm planning to switch over to Diablo 3 for all my group play as soon as it's released (due to it's absence of loot rolls), and unsubscribe from WoW as soon as my Annual Pass ends. I'm not even sure I will purchase MoP; the Beta access means I will most likely see all solo content before it's launch anyway, and I'm in no mood to face a gear grind that includes loot rolls, so I'm not sure I would even attempt it's dungeons and raids.
