I fail to see the issue with loads of loot being passed around. You know what would make me play this game more? Better gear. You know what would encourage me to do the side quests that I skipped on the road to 60? Better gear. You know what would make me want to actually play my alts? Better gear. Alas, it's a miserable and wholly off-putting experience for most of us, so I've passed on all of the above. It's a game. Give people the gear they want and deserve. Busting my tail over a difficult M+ and getting 35 anima is a slap in the face. So you know what I do in my meager spare time? Rather than playing SL, I log into a low level alt and quest or dungeon spam. Because for me, that's more meaningful than anything else I've experienced thus far.
"Play the game to enjoy the game."What does that even mean in relation to loot? You mean do a long raid and not get any loot in order to.. enjoy it?
U get a good piece of gear for completing 5 dungeon quest. Timewalking was never the case to farm good gear... Hello? And time walking is meant for reputation and timewalking badge farm and only !
The author of this article, doesn't realize that this is hurting the game. No one wants to do 3 hours of raiding m+ etc and get nothing for their effort. Bring back tokens such as valor and justice and let people earn loot instead of letting RNG tell them no loot for you for 3 weeks. I think the author needs to look at all aspects of the player base and not just his 1% view of it. I lost 10 people on my friends list ( that login and play) because of them not getting loot.
where is rewarding loot? Barely see fing things at level at min in SL only thing see is 99% of time is freaking lowest amount of anima for so much work..35 anima is barely worth doing that content..
They scaled down on 1 week of 200ilvl gear? dude... the majority have already outgeared 200 i lvl at this point, even the unlucky ones, this is just an 100% useless nerf imo.This would just have made it easier for people to gear up alts.
Meh...not gonna bother with normal gear anyways...
It took me almost 15 nathria kills to get a single piece of loot, which I instantly gave away because it was a 200 ilvl version of the heroic trinket i got from mythic dungeon week, then took another 5 kills to get an actual upgrade. I didn't even get a conduit throughout that time, I got my first conduit 22 kills deep. I abhor mythic+ and this loot nerf screws me over especially because in order to gear for the content I actually enjoy I'd have to bash my head against content I loathe to even get a slight chance at gear. Luckily for me the weekly vault has given me at least 1 good choice every week and during wrath timewalking I got 3 upgrades from ulduar (which had old droprates and hardmode for more loot).All content should have meaningful loot rates and be viable paths for gearing without having to do other content, wasn't that their entire reasoning behind making mythic+ a thing in the first place, to give people a viable path for gearing and end-game content that is not raiding? They really need to bring back valor or some kind of currency to reliably offset the rng balance. I really hate that mythic+ has become the gearing path for raiders, and not raids themselves, when people have 1-2 pieces of raid gear on but the entire rest of their gear is mythic+ then that's a problem in my eyes.
not fun to play when you get so little loot now.
No one likes loot anyways. No one wants that. Less loot makes everything more enjoyable!Seriously, wth do devs do with their time when they come up with gems like this? How can we make a 16 year old PAY TO PLAY game more fun? I know! Make loot drop less! LOL
Less loot drops in Shadowlands. This is intended. Play the game to enjoy the game. Do the content that appeals to you.- Less players plays the content. 30 minutes spaming lfg for tank/healer for keys. Guild going to progress in mythic raid, used to clean 10 keys per week, now doing only one from key they got from Vault. No one wants to bother. No one getting anything, few got actual upgrade from Vault. Timewalking raid loot drops have been brought into line with the rest of the expansion. Set your expectations accordingly.- I'll just skip. I had fun when it was actual content 10 years ago and you could earn reward.
