I'm calling it now. I almost expect there to be one unlucky person who gets 9 bracers in their chest.
and yet another wonderful example of the tettles effect, noice
I honestly this is a minor inconvenience, I knew this would happen. It really doesn't bother me because getting that "last piece of gear from the raid" is always gonna be the hardest regardless of the content.
Duplicates in a system that's designed specifically to alleviate the issues of the previous iteration - worthless rewards - feels like an oversight. They didn't think that it's gonna happen with the number of items you can get. That, or they really don't care. Which would be kinda weird, given how much better the communication in Shadowlands has gotten. Just a small bug that will be fixed, in my opinion.
I really hope it will be fixed. It's not even consistent with their vision, the Great Vault and the options are there to temper RNG. Having duplicates is terrible in that perspective.
It's easily fixed and likely will be, reactionary wowhead audience.
Duplicate in what sense? Twice a piece of gear we don't need will be very frustrating...Twice legendary crafting component, I guess that's not too bad, would encourage us to keep a bunch of components ready for when they inevitably nerf our bis effect and we have to swap.
Imagine you are grinding all this and you are getting 9 same items XD
Could've sworn they said this wouldn't give duplicates.I never made that thought up myself so I definitely heard it somewhere..
The chance of A is 60/60, since it can be any item, you are talking about one specific item being duplicate.The chance of the second item being different is 59/60 so it's 1-(60/60)*(59/60) = 1.67% or 1 in 60 anywayThe third item has to be different than A and B so 58/60, 1-(60/60)*(59/60)*(58/60) = ~5% chance out of 3 items having one duplicate
This is most likely a bug. Should be fixed before launch.
The facepalm is strong with this.Seriously, Blizz...do better
On one hand, this is fine because this is simply how loot pools work. On the other hand, this goes against what Blizzard promised us since this is supposed to give us MORE options, not less. This is problematic considering the removal of the RNG that would've made this acceptable; there's no more warforge, titanforge, corruption, and so on. Bonus stats are just fun little things, so that doesn't warrant the possibility of the same item twice (Or, god forbid, more).
Why would anyone be mad over a free piece of loot. Lol
