    Default Thoughts on Raid loot items in T1

    This might have been brought out before, but i was not able to find anything so...

    1. Perhaps add one more item to the drops from each of the T1-T2 instances. For some reason it feels like a good idea.. could be good or bad iono.

    2. Please change the cape drops from Regulos, and I don't remember if Crucia has one too or not.. I don't pay attention to the loot drops. I think the cape is always simply a runecraft. The stats are horrible for a boss like Regulos.

    These two things seem simple enough to add and might help out some of the progression-minded guilds trying to gear up.. I don't think adding one more item to each raid boss is a big deal. Thoughts?

    i;ve always thought that instead of just nerfing everything they should just make bosses drop 1 more peice of loot. but even then casual guilds would fail to down stuff. there are still plenty of guilds doing t1 stuff even with relic capes new essenses, dream orbs, more pa, more loot from IDH.

    as a person who has plays casually, loot isnt the issue. as for the cape you'll have an easier time grinding a simple rep and getting a guaranteed cape then just hoping for a drop that you win.

    Those capes were there before there were rep capes. Just because something better was added later doesn't really mean the old stuff ought to get bumped.

    Extra piece of loot in T1 bosses.... /shrug.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    I get where OP is coming from, basically would be 2x the loot so guilds could get to higher tier content faster, especially for members who are just starting to raid. While I don't think it's a bad idea in theory, I think a lot of people who spent months doing the t1 content to earn their gear at current rates might feel slighted.

    I've said this countless times. Tier 1 needs 1 extra drop per boss. It should have happened a long time ago.

    They're pretty cute as wardrobe items! I mean, they're terrible, but not completely worthless.

    Wait until next patch when they're used as upgrade tokens for another tier of legendary capes.

    You can still take them off the loot table and sell them for ESM. The Torvan "grind" isn't even that long anymore.

    This is "back in my day" syndrome, and people that make these complaints when old content grinds are reduced should be ignored Usually these people hated the grind and just want to inflict the same misery on others.

    I mean, SL T1 raid content has been out for 15+ months now.

    Having T1 bosses drop more loot is a great alternative to harder nerfs. Gear doesn't give people the skill to do T2 raids, but having a larger population of players with the gear to at least get in the door is definitely a good thing.
