Im new to this sort of thing so forgive me if I am wrong here but could you not just trade the Loot to someone who COULD use it, post raid?

Wrong to a certain point.. I had a tank respec dps last night for EV..He was planning on rolling tank gear.. He got dps gear 0-o cause of the auto loot system. The system design is flawed! Nothing more nothing less. Wasting a ton of epics on a system that clearly sucks for guilds.

This loot system is only there in normal mode. Once you get to hardmode / nightmare everything is 'normal' where you can roll on all the drops. Normal is meant to gear PUGs up and be an easy introduction to raiding. Just do hardmode and you'll be fine on loot

Is it master lootable? Can ML'er give gear out as intended to a specific player by a DKP or SK system?

Yup. Everything is just like bosses in WoW or any other MMO once you get past Normal mode. In master loot he can assign it to whomever he likes; only issue is there's no /roll. Way we do it now is just whoever gets the biggest upgrade

Aware of the no /roll. Which there should be imo. But glad to hear you can loot normally in modes after Normal.. I was stunned by this and was like....whaaatt? lol.
Cheers and Thanks!

guessing you didnt read up much on the game before launch? there were a few heated threads on the subject.

the normal modes are for new player introduction to raids/casual players that are time constrained (per the devs).

the tank that rerolled dps should've expected to get dps gear as that was what he was doing. good to know that the system seems to take into account what role one is actively playing at that moment. personally dont wanna be a dps and get a bunch of healer gear.

hopefully the hard/nightmare modes will be adjusted to their namesake.

I ran my guild last night through our first EV 8 man (which was jokingly easy, sure it's a little more difficult on Hard and NM modes). I switched to Master Loot before we entered the instance. We down first boss, go to loot and noticed player names on gear drops? I was like huh? I could not change the loot to anyone else besides the people that the game already names to loot such gear. I find this system incredibly INSANE. It looted an epic belt to me which was far from an upgrade to my crafted one. THIS HAS TO BE FIXED ASAP or you'll lose people to such an insane loot system. OR I could be retarded and not noticing an option to change.

I find this loot system good for pugs... NOT for guild ran raids. It should be a normal master loot system where guilds that have DKP or SK systems where the master looter can assign the gear too... PLEASE BIOWARE FIX THIS ASAP..

I recommend a "PUG" master loot setting and "GUILD" master loot setting.. Maybe when you enter an instance is notices guild tags for availible GUILD loot option..

What do you all think..

Cheers

I disagree. I think it ends the loot tyranny of leetist guilds.
