No /roll function?

How is there honestly no /roll function? Please tell me this is just a huge oversight by the devs and not something that was intentionally held out of the game. Me and some others formed an op group to down a world boss. We put it on master looter and down said boss, only to come to find out that we can't /roll for loot. HOW DOES THIS GET LEFT OUT?! That's absolutely ridiculous!

Hmmm, if this is true, it would really make masterlooter quite unusable. Is it possible that maybe the command has just a different name? Anybody else knows about this?

I believe that is what you meant, since most games do in fact have this function. We found this out last night, when we had 3 people and I suggested doing a /roll to find out who would use their companion, only to find out there isn't a /roll system.

This means that we may have to completely change our loot rules for raiding as we have always used master looter with a /roll system.

Wow...just, wow. I don't think I've ever played an mmo without a random funciton. Even UO had an item that could fulfill the purpose. How do you make a game with raiding and guilds, but no random? I sincerely hope this will be added quickly, along with master loot.

Most games LAUNCH with a roll function - at least any game in the past 10 years...

/roll Definitely needs implemented in the first patch.

Did you try /random? I don't get EA until tomorrow so I can't check.

I've tried /random as well, it does nothing. I also tried many other variations. As far as I can tell, this is not in the game right now. It SERIOUSLY needs to be fixed as I had the same issue today on Dromund Kaas. I found this out mid-fight, switched to group loot and as always there was disappointment when a Marauder gets a BoP Inquisitor item.

What is the point of Master Looter? And several people claimed the loot system did not obey their choice (though I can't say this is not user error).

This should be in the first patch indeed.
