BlizzCon 2011: Early monk abilities and the dark side of the force {WoW}

Ready Check: How legendaries destroy PVE {WoW}

Oct 23rd 2011 5:56PM Top guilds like Ensidia are clearing Firelands HC 4+ times per week for exactly this reason; their goal is to have all their dps with legendary in Dragon Soul. I'm sure other top10 guilds are doing the same. If you don't have 10+ dragonwraths, you can forget about world first.

Ready Check: Looking into DKP loot systems {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2011 6:46PM To add more details, a price has been determined for each item, in such a way that all classes will spend the same total amount of dkp to acquire a full set of gear from a certain raid instance, while taking into account the relative value of that slot of gear to that class/spec. For example, everyone pays 90 dkp for head/chest/legs slot items, but for a ranged slot item, hunters pay 160 dkp while other classes only pay 30 dkp.

DKP is awarded per hour, not per kill, with a start and end of raid bonus. So if we raid 4 hours on a certain evening, everyone who attended the full raid will get 4x2 dkp, + 2x2 dkp for the start and end = 12 dkp total.

Offspec items are being handled by /roll, except when we're gearing up certain offpspecs for a progress fight (for example resto druids getting boomkin gear for Ragnaros heroic).

And lastly we have the upgrade and BIS rules. Upgrade rule allows players to get a cost reduction on items if they have already taken an item for that slot. This was mainly added to prevent small upgrades from being disenchanted cause everyone wants to save dkp for the BIS items. The BIS rule allows you to post a BIS list on the forums, and will give you priority on those items over players who don't have that item in their BIS list, regardless of DKP.

Ready Check: Looking into DKP loot systems {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2011 6:34PM My guild uses a fixed-price, dkp awarded per hour of raiding system, with offspec items being free (/roll). It's been working very well for us for multiple years now, with almost no complaints.

Breakfast Topic: What do you collect in game? {WoW}

Aug 1st 2011 8:57AM I got a fairly big collection of staves and polearms in my bank, as well as all the tier sets I ever looted.

On my shaman alt, I got a massive collection of fist weapons.
