Trading personal loot?

6 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, 

I hope someone of you can give me some clearance with this topic.

So, when I am in dungeons with some people and it's personal loot, we sometimes can trade the dropped items and sometimes not. I doesn't seem to have any influence if it's upgraded or if the dropped item is a major upgrade for the person who looted it.


Anyone knows how it is choosen if an item is tradeable or not?


Thanks in advance!

I believe this is influenced by the item level of your character/current item

So you're saying if I am 830 and I get an item that 845 it's not tradeable for me, right?



Well that was nonsense from me. If the item in the slot is lower than the one I looted it will increase my total itemlevel. So it seems it's this mechanic.

From the last post of Ion Hazzikostas I found:

  • Personal loot will be tradeable
    • if you already acquired that item
    • if the item is no upgrade for you (in terms of itemlevel)

      So i dont wanna rant about itemlevel epics and rares but i probably will. 
      i just dont get the itemlevel vs stats calculation. why can you recieve and item thats up too 35 itemlevel higher with the same secondary stats as an 815 item ? i know that int/agi/Strength and stamina have a set amount for each itemlevel.
      I mean for my shadowpriest im having a hard time swapping my heroic ring ive got thats got an itemlevel of 825 but rolled with a socket, its got 1k haste and 600crit, which is the same amount of haste and crit on my 840 ring i got. but since it got a socket its still worth keeping the heroic ring.
      i just feel like gearing in this expansion seems wierd, you have to trick groups to invite you because you dont have that 845+ ilvl only because the gear you get in mythics isnt better then the gear you get in heroics. So what i do to get into court of stars and arcway groups ive gotta respec holy equip that gear which is my offspec gear but because that 846 ilvl and my shadow only is 841 and then ask to join the group. 
      (yes ive been unlucky with gear for shadow, no relic drops my shadow weapon is 863 and my holy is 875 or something, and basically no mythic drops what so ever for shadow spec etc) 
      i guess i should include i havent missed one mythic reset yet so its not like ive been slacking.
      anyway this is how i feel its wierd, strange abit uncomfortable to be honest. Obviously try not to judge people by thier itemlevel because they might just be as well geared as they can without being at that magic number of 849 ilvl+ just because it would simply be a DPS loss.

      Hello there fellow warlocks!

      I was just curious about your legendary loot preference. From what I've read on forums/tried live I assume that most viable specs for raiding would be destro/demonology. Therefore it seems logical to aim for legendaries for these specs prio (some of them can be used in both/all specs) but primarily, which one to choose first, since demo profits from legendaries more, but destro will be played more often ?

      Thanks for the advice.

      I just got an item from follower missons. It was a box that when open turn into a random item lvl 655. When I Used it I got the trinket  [Pillar of the Earth]
      579 stamina
      134 versatility
      90 leech
      134 bonus armor
      Sure thats a very good trinket for tanking. not as much for dps gladiator.
      Is this going to be fixed or is there a workaround? To be able to get BiS items I feel like atm we have to risk getting a stamina trinket. Because if I don't use protection as specialization I will not be able to get bonus armor and that is my best stat.

      Another loot rant from me.
      I am a blood DK, but I got this lame sword on a bonus roll in LFR:
      Greatsword of Frozen Hells, a 2H strength sword.
      It has Crit and Haste as its additional stats....therefore its about as crap as its possible to get for a blood DK. It doesn't even have a good socket bonus.
      I'm annoyed that this is a potential drop for my class and annoyed at wasting a roll.
      I'm trying to convince Blizz that there's a bug in the loot me this is clearly a DPS weapon.
      Its bad enough that the BiS in this tier is a shared boss drop without having crap like this. I should have got my Bo'Ris, not this junk.
