LFR loot rules, off-specs and queues

4 posts in this topic

hey,

here's an idea I have on improving LFR loot rules and queue times….

In the old loot system, flawed though it may have been, it gave an option to gear an off-spec (not necessarily by being a ninja…we used to do guild LFR runs for example). This cannot be done now, as loot is always tied to the spec in which you queued.

As a tank, I get into LFR really quick. Queues are short. The same is true when I'm playing my healer.

My problem is now, that I've got all the loot from LFR I need so I've stopped running them.

I would carry on playing them if I could have a chance at off-spec gear. I'd be happy to queue as tank or healer but just get a different spec of gear as a reward……surely this would be good for queue times and the game in general. So often it is one tank or a couple of healers missing….

Maybe I'm just spoilt with insta-queues, but having the option of choosing a spec of gear to have a chance for would get me running them again. It wouldn't just be for VP when I need it. Having an off-spec, even if only geared to LFR level, is very useful for a raid team.

What's your opinion?

Agreed having some system to get offspec in LFR would be great. I simply have no interest in going back and working on my healadin set by running dungeons, then LFR as a healer. If I could choose to roll for offspec on bosses, I would be delighted. Not sure what Blizzard's plans or thoughts are though.

My ideal, theoretical loot system when queing up:

1. Select lfr desired

2. Select your role

3. Select loot table or spec you want the system to roll on

4. ???

5. Profit

This way you would no longer see players queing healer and dpsing or as dps and tanking (will probably still be the few who will anyways) and it would remove the feeling of playing another alt when gearing your mains offspec.

      WHO WE ARE
      We’ve been many things over the years.  A small, quiet guild that was focused on progressing through ICC and then H ICC; a much larger guild running 25m ToT; a guild of renowned trolls that caused trouble in all forums and channels of chat nightly.  The guild that blew up the forums and caused an immediate Blizzard reaction to modify the Swapblaster (we actually spent an entire evening keeping people locked inside the Stormwind Trade District bank until the powers that be stepped in.)
      We’ve watched players and guilds come and go, servers boom and bust, and through it all we’ve maintained a solid group of friends who like to raid (and depending on the patch, RBG) together while maintaining a cynical sense of humor.  With the coming of Legion, we’re definitely looking for a few more dedicated people who like to have fun, but take raiding seriously and like the feeling of progressing with a group of friends.  Ideally, we’d like to have a core of about 20 so that we can push straight from heroics into mythics.
      <F I L T H> isn’t for everyone, but we take care of our own, and those who like us, really like us.

      WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR
      We are currently looking for competent raiders to fill our roster. We are currently preparing for Normal & Heroic Nighthold progression, and we are ready to go in when the raid opens on January 17th. When we say "competent raider", we mean we want people who can pull sufficient numbers (DPS, HPS) while performing the required mechanics that a fight demands. Basically, we want people who can pull their own weight and not require to be carried. We don't expect perfection. We don't expect anywhere near perfection. We are not perfect, and neither are our raiders. We make mistakes, we wipe, we learn as a team and we grow as a team. If that's something that you want to be a part of, then we welcome your application. If you're gonna be an asshole when the going gets tough, then this is not the guild for you, and we advise that you apply elsewhere.
      To help quantify what kind of people we're looking for and to help give you a better idea of if you're able join our team, 
      we are currently looking for people at roughly 870 Item Level minimum. DPS Requirements are at about 300k sustained single-target.
