This loot system is just stupid. Went in there today and the 3 bosses we could actually loot (the 2 bosses with chest loot bugged out and didn't let anyone grab the gear they were "assigned") had their gear assigned terribly. Our tank got 2 pieces of alacrity gear that he had to re-mod, while our inquisitor healer, who could actually use the pieces as is, was SOL.

For the love of God, focus a bit on patching endgame in the near future. It's buggy as hell and overall seems to be working quite poorly atm.

Yea, the chests being bugged is bad enough, but it auto assigning loot is pretty ridiculous.

Regardless of loot setup (master looter, round robin, FFA), loot was always assigned to members. That's bad enough, but it was always assigned to the same people. Jugg loot to one person. Sorc loot to one person. Merc loot to one person. That person never changed.

The third "boss" in EV dropped a chest. Only one person could loot the chest. After 15 minutes, the chest "respawned" and another person could loot it. We had to have it respawn 7 times for everyone to even get their commendations.

What in the *********** **** were the in-house testers doing for these operations? It completely baffles my mind that a game could be released in this way. I can't believe I paid 60 dollars to beta test their raids for them.
Calm down people, roll an alt....see some more story lines.....its only been 6 days since release.....
I find your lack of faith disturbing...

Goto the public test forums. These bugs are supposed to be fixed according to the posted patch notes. This patch is supposed to be in todays update (tues).

If you are going to constantly asked when something is going to be fixed... you should look to see if it has been answered. Those notes have been up for a while.

It's a bug and will be fixed in tonight's patch. Of course BW does not intend to disable master loot in operations.

Eternity Vault
- Players are now able to properly obtain loot from chests.

The question is, does "properly obtain loot" mean that master loot is working as we all want it to? Or does that simply mean that everyone can now loot the chests to get their pre-assigned loot?

edit: Master Looter now works correctly for items being looted from chests.

Didn't see that one. Well, looks like the fix is on the way, then.

Remember, if the world didn't suck, we'd all fall off.

It's still broken... Master Looter does NOT work. In our instance just today only one person from each class got assigned all the loot for their class. Didn't matter how we had the loot rules set the game decided it for us. This fact makes instances worthless. How the hell did something like this get missed in testing? It would be even more rediculas if it's as intended.

I have the same complaint with the PvP bags.

I realize the loot system currently in place is ideal for PUGs, but it isn't like those operations are puggable right now anyway.
They are puggable up to Hard Mode Soa.

We found tonight that with Master Looter on, we had an issue with people being able to loot their items.

We ended up giving the players lead and therefore Master Loot, and then they were able to loot. So until they fix the bug, you could give that a try!
