This is a horrible change. Out of 3 items, 2 will be ring/neck and only one useful item.
Definitely going to invest hundreds of hours for getting loot once a month , IF ...not
You still only get to receive one piece of gear from the weekly vault/chest, exactly same as BFA, only difference is you can do more content to increase the loot pool you can choose ONE from, It still one item per week from chest, Bonus roll was RNG possibility of 2 extra pieces (2 coins per week) as well as one from weekly chest, so you are down from 3 possible pieces of extra loot per week to just one. That added to the roughly 50% less chance of getting a loot drop in a raid, which ever way you look at it the chance of receiving loot in SL is way less than half the chance you had in BFA.The huge reduction in Loot drops across the board, everything time gated, Blizz saying its about making meaningful loot really means its ALL about making you play a lot more to receive a lot less.
So many people crying about a change that will never affect them.If you are actually raiding on a mythic level you really don't care about loot besides as an means to an end.
no point in doing mythic runs then if the other 17 people in your raid party get nothing at all for the duration theyre raiding. ^&*! that. cause everyone knows rngesus sucks. and on the off chance you do get something itll only be coin loot which shouldnt even count cause its not an item of use to your toon
Blizzard is steadily forcing !@#$ty classic gameplay on us and telling us we really love it. All the worst lessons being learned.
What about heroic?
As long as the great vault lets you target the items you miss, this change will not be significant. Major frustration usually comes from not getting trinkets and weapons over a month of resets, so as long as you can see those raid items pop in your great vault, the rest is just gonna be a nice to have, whenever it happens.I believe the most people complaining here do not realize how much easier will gearing be with a weekly chest allowing you to pick one out of at least 6 items.
That's a joke, right? Atleast in Classic you have Lootmaster. This just increases the chance that ppl get dead loot they won't equip and can't trade due to minimal ilvl difference but bad stats. If they would give us back lootmaster aswell on the other hand...
They realized gearing was suuuuuuper imbalanced toward raiding. As a M+ player still digesting the recent demotion of both qty and quality of M+, I feel this change makes the modes of play more balanced. Keeping in mind of course, that this is all subject to change as players grow in power and progress through the expansion
