needless to say, we don't use ML anymore but maybe, just maybe if BW knows it's broken, THEY SHOULDN'T LET PEOPLE USE IT???

but fanboi's will say people should research.....pathetic....

The fix for that is you assign master looter to the person who has gear assigned and they can loot it. Same goes for everyone else in the group. Just keep passing master looter to those that have the gear assigned to them. Waiting on BW to fix it is gonna be a long wait.

The way i handle loot is round robin. then i loot the chest/corpse wothout auto loot. Then i check for duplicate pieces, if two trooper gloves drop and we have two troopers i just bring one up at a time both troppers need and the on that loses gets the next pair. Also i dont have people pass on loot, i dont know if it still is but it used to be bugged so that you got loot still that you passed on so i ahve everyone greed what they dont want.

LoL

We downed Karagga on NiM and got three BH mainhands. Rakata BH mainhands. Plus Rataka Agent stuff, and I think Bracers from the Foreman crusher.

So your raid team shows up blind to ops and doesn't read any strats?

Not a "fanboi." I'm a guild logistics officer who likes to see his raid team get the gear they worked for. They did their homework on the fights, why shouldn't I do mine on handling loot?

Something wrong with figuring stuff out yourself? I play the game to have fun, reading already developed strategies is having someone figure the answer out to a problem. That's boring. In addition, I agree with the earlier person. This should just work, the game has been out for a month and a half and looting still isn't working as it should. You SHOULD NOT have to research forums for basic everyday things that should work.

No, nothing wrong with that at all. All of our strats are written in house. We figured it out and we posted them for review before fights. They are an ongoing discussion as we find better ways around a fight. It is a lot of fun!

That being said, there are a lot of things that don't work as they should in end-game right now. You can save yourself and your team a lot of headache by running a quick search here. I am not suggesting that you spoon feed your raid team a pre-defined win mode either. The master looter issue has been around for a while. The first thing I did when I saw the patch note about it was search amd see if anyone had confirmed the fix. It wasn't confirmed and we stuck with the system we had been using. Great loots were enjoyed by all.

Yes, it should be working. Once it is confirmed to work I will switch over to ML.

If something doesn't work the way you think it's supposed to, a cursory forum search is generally the first step to take to make sure if it's a bug or working as intended.

Nobody says that this is a good thing, but it is a fact of life right now. It doesn't take much of a forum search at all to learn this information, given the fact that there's been three threads on this issue on the first page of this forum for the last few weeks.

workaround: Pass master looter to the person who cannot loot the assigned item, have them grab the item, then pass master looter to the next person.

The most frustrating aspect of this game is that I have to alt-tab to the forums 5 times a night to find workarounds for bugs...but at least workarounds exist.

Let's look at two groups:

Group 1: Kills boss, loot drops, but group cannot grab the loot. Players stand around and pout, but ultimately leave the instance without getting the loot.\

Group 2: Kills boss, sees the loot but cannot grab it. Player alt-tabs to forums and figures out how to work around the bug. Players leave instance with the loot.

Which group is more pathetic? Hint: It's not the group that actually got loot.
