Has Bioware even mentioned fixing Master Looter?

Bosses do not drop Tier gear for my Ops group at all when Master Looter is selected.

There are occasionally times when it takes more than a few moments to decide who is getting what piece of gear.
Masterloot doesn't give you a 60 second countdown. We've take a lot more than 60 seconds to distribute loot before. You have until the bosses corpse vanishes.

Here is how our guild does it.

We do not use Master Loot Because yes It is broken and we aren't willing to test it every week to see if it is fixed.

A few things need to happen for this to work.

***This will only work in Hard Mode and Nightmare mode as Normal mode Loot is assigned by the game. ***
  1. Keep the loot system on Round Robin.
  2. The Masterlooter must make sure their Area Loot AND Auto loot is turned OFF.
  3. No one must loot the boss PERIOD!
  4. Only the person designated as the ML for the raid loots the boss.
  5. The master looter assigns the loot via Vent/teamspeak/etc.
  6. The master looter clicks on the item to be assigned in his/her loot window.
  7. Everyone in the raid EXCEPT the person getting the loot passes on the item.
  8. The person who the item is assigned to selects NEED.
  9. Repeat for all items.
  10. Once all the loot is gone only the commendations will remain.
  11. Have everyone in the raid loot the boss to get their commendations.

Using this method you will get all the drops from the boss you should be getting and you still have a way of Masterlooting it out. If your raid can't wait 5 minutes before clicking on the boss there are more problems than boss looting.

Thank you very much for explaining this. Going to try and see if I can convince the guild to go with this. We have no loot drama - but are tired of duplicate loot going to people when others need it.

From the moment the loot distributor clicks on the body does this give you more than 60 seconds to get the loot passed out? If so, how long do you get?

You must have missed the part about tier loot not being dropped for ops groups while Master Looter is selected. Certainly, it will give you forever if there's no loot to distribute.

to keep issues from happening we used Round Robin last night. I turned off auto loot and enable area loot. The list would come up I would link it in OPs chat Then I would click on each item individually and allow people to roll on what they could use.

You get plenty of time. It will stay there until rolled by someone or the corpse rots....which is a long time. The 60 seconds that is being refered to is how long you have to roll on the item that is put out to be rolled on.

You get the standard 60 secs to pick your choice (NEED,GREED,PASS) from the moment the Loot master Clicks the item in the loot window. If the Master looter has auto loot on then you will get gear spam and only have 60 secs for all of them.

It is imperative that only 1 person loot the boss, AND that person who is looting have Auto Loot Turned OFF. If you don't do that, then the whole thing will not work.

Using this system you are only dealing with one item at a time.

Keep in mind this will only work in Hard Mode and Nightmare Mode as Loot is auto assigned by the game in Normal mode.

The only items you can distribute/roll on in Normal Mode are schematics and crafting materials.
