We use a random roll loot system. It has some rules to it but is pretty much as simple as that.

Majority of the time we default loot to Main Tanks(MT) and Main Healers(MH). This is primarily used on tier set pieces and bonus sets. Depending on the situation of the group it would go MT > all. If our healers aren’t very strong it would MT > MH > all. To be a main healer you pretty much have to be on for all raids. If you only show up every once and a while you won’t get the benefit of this option. Main Tanks are likewise except you have to be among the top 2 used. So keep that in mind. It’s nothing personal but we have found if you default more than 1-2 tanks your dps won’t ever get the gear they need until you are ready to leave the content you are already in.

When rolling on tier pieces keep in mind, who has what set bonus’s if they get a 2/4 piece bonus chances are they will have it defaulted to them. So might not want to waste your roll on that. They will have the option of passing it. But its primarily up to them. If you have a set bonus make it known, we do not keep track of it. So say it before you roll.

Other options for non-set tier pieces are to do your homework. Know what a boss drops that you could possibly use. And know who you are rolling against. Talk amongst each other and maybe you can decide a trade agreement for rolls. Where they don’t roll on that item until you have it and you won’t roll on another until they get what they want. Or something along those lines.

Because our system is roll based. Please do not cry, qq and/or whine about not getting loot. L2Roll. Based on this system it is hard to point the blame at us as leaders because your random ability to roll sucks dick. Yes we would love to give loot to everyone and wish to do so in time. But in all honesty the more you show up. The better your odds of winning those rolls are.

To know when to roll you will need to pay attention after a boss is downed, or when loot is being distributed.

You will know when your item is up for rolling when you see:

[Raid][Fanboi]: need [Phat loot off Internet Dragon]
[Raid][Fanboi]: 5
[Raid][Fanboi]: 4
[Raid][Fanboi]: 3
[Raid][Fanboi]: 2
[Raid][Fanboi]: 1
[Raid][Fanboi]: final

Between the countdowns you are able to roll. All rolls after final are ignored and null.

If no one rolls during the countdown you are able to type: off. Then /roll.

Saying off means “Offset”, so it’s an alternative set. It goes along the same line as alts. So your vote would count the same as an alt in the raid.

There are exceptions for this as some people in guild play certain chars for certain fights to help the guild. Like if we need a resist tank for one fight, or a player for a certain spec. Also if we are short on healers they bring their healer, or dps if we are short on that. These people are exempt from these rules. You will find most of them would pass to others anyway.

You will find majority of the set50/officers in the guild have already had mains, and re-rolled range or healers to help the guild progress. Bottom line is they aren’t going to loot whore you. So I honestly wouldn’t worry about it.

The best part of our loot system is the option to pass when you win. In this game yes the primary thing you’re going after is phat loot. But, when you can say hey… what I have is good enough for now and pass to others that have less. You are not only being a great guildy but also a good person. There are going to be times when passing might not be the best idea especially to someone who doesn’t raid all the time. But, again it is your choice as high roller.

If someone is rolling on things that aren’t exactly for their class. IE a holy pally rolling on a spell crit trinket. And dps still need it. I will object the roll and give it to the dps’er. So do keep in mind watch what you are rolling for. If no one wants or needs it’s practically free game.

All in all, we try to be as fair about loot as possible. We expect you to do the same.
