Group Loot Restrictions in Dragonflight

Recommended Posts

67460-official-preview-of-dungeons-comin

It appears you won't be able to roll for loot you already own in Dragonflight, only if it's a more powerful version of that item.

A new global string that appeared in Dragonflight Alpha Build 45141 suggests players will be ineligible to roll for items they already own unless the item is of higher quality.

LOOT_ROLL_INELIGIBLE_REASON6 - You already have a powerful version of this item.

What do you think about the change? Let us know down in the comments!

Hopefully the "new" group loot system will only be in FULL guild grps or they kill random pug raiding.

This is fine to an extent; but will it restrict the ability to trade if not an item you wish not to have?  Like I would gladly pass over items I really don't want in my bags but if the system is going to restrict it and say it's an upgrade then it seems flawed.   Sorry if the question seems confusing to ask.

I think this is a MUCH needed addition, but would also like to see it implemented that if it is NOT an upgrade for you that you can't roll either ... i.e. you have an iLvl 300 in shoulder slot, and a 280 one drops even if you don't have it - all you would ever do is vendor it (or at best transmog it) you should not be able to roll on it, UNLESS no one else can roll on it either ... Just take the "On your honor"out of the system - because we all know there's that one person that has "No Honor" and everything is "Hunter Loot" and rolls on everything no matter what ...

I think you read that wrong.

From what I gather, basically, you have a 298 Old Warrior's Soul, you kill HC Sylvanas and OWS drops, you'll not be able to loot it unless it has a tretiary stat or smth.

I believe this is a change intended to hamstring those that roll need on everything.

As a person who only experienced raids through mostly pick-up groups, I would welcome this change.

From the description, it say, you won't be able to roll for an item you already have, unless its more powerful, which means no one will ninja the loot even though they already have it, so they can vendor it or something.

But from experience, i tend not to get anything from groups, though i haven't done a raid in a LONG time.

I'm thinking along the lines of M+ not much of raiding.  Eg) You run the same dungeon 3x with the same difficulty of key, timed to 2-3 to the key, an item that is not of your wanting gets placed in your bag.  Each time you reset the dungeon you vendor said item but keeps auto going to your bag.  The item is not an upgrade for your class.  Do you waste bag space so if another should drop you can trade it over to another player or keep playing hot potato by vendoring unwanted items but still keep receiving as rewards?

Not the best way to do it, what if the higher ilvl is the wrong stats? What if you can upg the 280 with better stats to your ilvl? Which leads to my question, what if you have the item but want a new version to upgrade with Valour like in current M+ seasons. Perhaps less an issue with the dungeons being mixed up more but potentially still a problem.

As an example, IQD. If you have a maxed S1 version, which is a higher ilvl then a base S2 one but S2 is upgradable now, it would be an improvement for you long term. In this (rather limited but fairly common) situation, people wouldn't farm base or lower M+ levels to get an item they can't get. Unless it's tradeable but still limits them.

There is always exceptions to rules, and perhaps upgradeable stuff will be an "exception" ???

I bet players will find a way around that barrier. I.e. selling the item, that may drop, loot it if it drops, after looting just rebuy the sold item.

I'm pretty sure this is for their remade group loot

      Currently, on the Dragonflight Beta, you won't reach Level 70 just by completing the campaign. You also need to run dungeons or complete side quests.
      The first gating occurs in Azure Span where you need to be Level 66 to continue the Dragonflight campaign. However, you will be safe if you complete at least 3 dungeons at Level 60 and higher and you won't need to complete any side quests.
      The second gating, however, is more noticeable and you will need to reach Level 70 to be able to start the final two chapters of the Dragonflight campaign.

      Dragonflight includes a ton of side quests that you can easily find by opening the map for each zone and they reward you with reputation that increases your Renown with the main factions, so you would probably complete them anyway.

      What do you think about gating the main campaign behind levels? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

      On live servers, the Frog'it World Quest required for "From A to Zereth", is currently available in the US region.
      If you've been waiting a long time for the quest to spawn, you can now complete it on live servers, at least in the US region, according to reports.
      Completing the quest is required for From A to Zereth, and ultimately, the Back from the Beyond meta-achievement that will be removed from the game soon.
      From A to Zereth rewards the Cryptic Aurelid mount.
