    Yeah loot was random, but it spawned with that random loot. They jus changed what mobs can have in their loot tables which isn't a hard change, but actual loot that wasn't spawned with the mob is a hard change. And doubt they could even do that.

    Edit: now they could add a quest you could grab that pertains to world bosses you could have. N if you complete the quest( do x dmg on world boss) it could reward you.

    I find it so weird to gatekeep getting gear in this game, especially when the proposed solution is to give everyone more gear (so the highest time investment players still get the most gear). How does this negatively impact your experience exactly?

    There is literally a thread going on RIGHT NOW about making raids harder, and this guy wants to let people cherry pick the loot table essentially making content easier.

    Ya'll crazy Lol.

    We don't do wow things here sir, unless you play on a truebox server, then its kinda like wow Lol

    This was discussed ad infinitum before the server launched. Try searching and reading forum archives from the period.

    If you want to play a looter/shooter-type game, there are many options available, EQ isn't one of them. The intent of a TLP EQ server is to, at least loosely, re-create the historical experience. Fundamental design elements are not going to change, no matter how many times you ask.

    I think this is a super cool idea! it also rewards killing the mobs with fewer people because more people = less damage per person before it dies and longer to complete the quest.

    You could also have more control over the rewards this way. you could keep them specific to the boss killed or zone, ensure you get a class/race usable item or not, etc.

    More gatekeeping! This doesn't attract new players and doesn't make DBG more money. My toon is BiS every expansion of every server I play on. If you want to play inefficiently instead of min-max the way modern gamers do that is your choice.

    DKP is a lot of work, time sitting around bidding and drama.

    Personal loot done well isn't at all like having everyone roll need.

    I already addressed this in my new server idea thread. All bases are covered

    Wait, what I am hearing is you want free loot for auto-attacking a raid mob that a coordinated raid is clearing to/pulling/tanking/healing through/debuffing etc that otherwise you would be splatting to in 10 seconds? Isn't Mischief enough with free trade / random loot - you want an another extra easy piece of pie without working with the number of people it takes to legitimately kill a raid target?

    When you're BiS in SoF, or for that matter any other expansion where you can't buy gear for KR, wake me up.
  11. I Love Lamp Elder

    Sorry which TLPs did you get BiS gear on?

    I vote this as a worst idea suggested 2022 EQ TLP forums canidate.

    I vote this as a best idea suggested 2022 EQ TLP forums candidate.

    The Mensa TLP. Invitation only. We use the alpha launcher which uses facial recognition to login, so no zergs and no bots.

    I don't see how rewarding people for getting a tag in on a boss and probably unintentionally training and causing other problems for the raiding guild in the process would be beneficial for the game. Most of these bosses are accessible via AoC so raiders aren't really losing a lot by missing out on OW kills, and solo players shouldn't really be leeching rewards off other players' work.

    I think the current competitive OW solutions is fine with the caveat of they should really do more enforcement to stop RMT crews from monopolizing them (one or two individuals can mobilize 40+ bots faster than any legitimate guild can mobilize 40+ actual players).
  16. I Love Lamp Elder

    Sorry, what server are/were you on where the OW targets are/were monopolized by bots? Never been my experience.

    Open world Raid Bosses are such a small portion of EQ content that this suggestion is almost entirely worthless except maybe to annual TLP recyclers & they get everything they want with a bog basic Standard Rules TLP anyway, if they are determined to bore themselves stupid I say allow them to succeed.

    or implement raid currency back to Classic. raid currency was such a great upgrade to the game when it started
