Feb 24th 2012 9:00AM Personally I think the only problem with the current system is all the whiners QQing over others "ninjaing" "their" loot. Did nobody ever have problems farming heroics for loot and having other players roll need and win it out from under them before this? I can remember running countless LK heroics for weeks on end trying to get a trinket, only to have some other DPS class win the roll when it finally dropped - that's called RNG. Deal with it and move on. Try again next week.
Players have always rolled need on stuff they don't really need because that's what everyone else does. I don't agree with it, but it happens in random dungeons and will continue to happen in LFR too. If you don't like that, find a proper raid group with a master looter (and _clear_ looting rules) and try your luck there. If you want to stick with LFR PUGs, accept that you might not win the items you want the first time through.
If you must change the system, either hand out a Raid Finder currency for boss kills, or give each player a goodie bag with random loot.
Feb 2nd 2012 5:05PM Q4tQ: I remember seeing some time back (two years or more) a discussion from Blizzard on possible changes to fishing, making it something more akin to fishing in the Wii game Animal Crossing. What ever happened to that idea? Since then fishing has been nerfed somewhat - guaranteed catches in pools, less junk fished up, etc - but the core mechanism is still as painful as ever. Why is it that a Master Angler, with hat, enchanted gloves, fishing line and lure still can't cast straight? Surely it is time for fishing to be changed so that we have some degree of control over where our casts will land?
Jan 20th 2012 9:17AM Grrr! This should have been a reply to Shinanji's comment up above...
Jan 20th 2012 9:16AM I am like you Shinanji - SV just doesn't feel right. (Nor does MM for that matter, though it is a little better.) When I was raiding, I never had any real problems getting near the top of the charts as BM. I never could get my head around the concept of a hunter that wasn't so concerned about his pet - pets are are what makes huntering so much fun! ;^)
Jan 19th 2012 8:30PM Nice, but what about _real_ hunters? Where's the info for BM?
