    Default T r i o n! ! ! ! !

    What are you doing? Seriously! I have completed about 20 Tier 2 zones in the past week. Maybe more. And I swear, only 2 Mage items has dropped. Let me spell that....TWO! Whats going on with the drop rate!. Everything that drops is Warrior, Cleric.....Warrior, Cleric....Warrior, Cleric....Rogue.

    That dont even include the Raid rifts. Out of (damn...dont remember...and Im delirious from getting upset).....but only a couple pieces have dropped. And one being a damn Lesser.

    Im not sure if you are intentionally trying to make Mages quit, so you can revamp the whole Mage class. Or you not playing/experiencing your own game so you can see whats going on.

    Maybe its just my Shard. But me and some other Mages were discussing the lack of drops for us. I guess its intended that everything Mages do have to be hard in this game. The spell rotations....the dps....the loot drops. Oh yeah....Im sorry, some damn shoulders dropped on a Raid Rift.

    You answered your own question.
    2 mages every 20 people (archon and chloro) means 1 cloth item every 10 items.

    Mages are the only class that need 1 set of gear.

    Warriors: Tanking gear, DPS gear
    Rogues: Tanking gear, DPS gear
    Cleric: Tanking gear, DPS gear, Healing gear ( Healing and DPS gear for Clerics may be the same, not sure)
    Mage: DPS/Healing gear

    So if everything was perfectly itemized 1 in 9 drops (or 1 in 8 if Clerics only need 2 different sets) would be Mage drops.

    Doesn't seem fair for mages, but that is where we are at right now.

    Yeah, this is a problem, though. As someone who doesn't generally complain about the state of the mages, the state of mage DROPS in game are horrendous. Our clerics, warriors, and rogues are geared to the teeth. Most items that drop now in GSB/GP are just repeat drops... "rot loot" if you will. We junk them and mages just collect their tokens and call it a day.

    It's just upsetting, since our 20-man group runs 4-5 mages, and we're all generally undergeared comparatively. When something drops, we all scramble over it, since it's likely the only drop we'll see that week.

    I realize the cleric/warrior/rogue drops may not be for the spec that person runs, but I'd rather receive off-spec loot than nothing at all.

    Random loot is random, and is generally not a good idea in the long term. Most mmo's have adopted it and won't do much else though, so we are stuck with it.

    Ok...about 9 Tier 2s and 6 raid rifts with 2 lessers (healers/mage) and 1 Mage item. Almost every drop has been Warrior or clerics. Im almost ready to take a break. Whats the point in playng if there is no reward?

    I've ran a lot more than 20 and I've gotten 2 item drops that were upgrades. Staff of the Cyclone and the Wand of Storms. I can't really guess how many t2's I've ran but it would have to be more than 50.

    I admit I'm getting a little tired of it too but what can you do? It needs to be somewhat random.

    Just roll an alt until things get settled. I don't think it's worth not playing the mage over the DPS issues and loot issues, but spend a little time on another class. Plus, at the very least there's tokens, which will ultimately turn into some solid gear.

    Here you there.. This weekend I did a bunch of runs as a support healer because the group wanted to try out a cleric.. over half the drops were cleric tanking gear..

    Don't get me wrong I was extremely pleased because the runs went really well and our guild has another healer. But when all you see drop is chain this or chain that.. you start to listen to the voices saying its all a conspiracy (jk) but yeah you get it..
