    Default Upcoming Loot Changes - 3.4 - Tier 1 and Tier 2 Raiding

    With Telara about to be overrun with a bunch of new Primalist characters and with Tier 3 right around the corner, we've made some changes in the loot tables for T1 and T2 of raiding.

    1. Chances of Tank loot has been lowered. For T3, we have a different solution in mind but for T1 and T2, we've reduced their chances of dropping.
    2. All bosses from T1 and T2 raids (both 10 man and 20 man) will drop an extra piece of loot. For the most part what this means is that there will be 3 rolls on 2 different tables with no duplicated items dropped. There will be instances where if a boss normally drops gloves and necklaces that you'll get three necklaces. However, for instances where the boss drops weapons, the weapon tables either receive a higher weighting or you are guaranteed two or more weapon drops.

      Examples:

      Sicaron has weapon tables that are higher weighted and it is possible to drop 3 with no repeats. However, because RNG is a cruel mistress at times, you can have 0 weapons drop.

      Threngar will always drop 3 weapons with no repeated drops.

      Akylios will always drop 2 weapons and a cape. The weapons could be the same.
    3. Armor type chance to drop per calling is 20%. Basically, Plate, Chain, and Cloth all carry a weighting of 1 while Leather carries a weighting of 2.
    4. Matron Zamira and Sicaron now have chances to drop a new Rogue 1h weapon.
    5. T1 and T2 have had Primalist 2h weapons added for both Tanks and DPS. The DPS versions can be sidegraded to healing options.
    6. Hard Mode loot chests do NOT drop extra loot. The extra loot drops only come from normal loot.
    7. Jewelry/Accessory drops have been adjusted as well to account for Primalist.

    I think the rep is more of an issue than gear for returning players tbh (ghar mainly) - but yeah this is good start for returning players/casual guilds I guess

    Thanks for the journey RIFT - It's been fun

    Sounds like we need more raid rifts for new lessers. Since Ghar rep will only be relevant for vendor lessers with PTW.

    This is a much welcomed change






    Just out of curiosity though, are the weightings the same as all of the other drops on the table or is "have chances to drop" supposed to imply a rare occurrence?

    Those sound like good changes to help new/casual players to gear up a bit faster. I hope this means you won't nerf the bosses too hard with 3.4

    Are you also going to increase / let go the cap for T1 / T2 fragments to be earned per week? T1 is reeeeally low and slows down the process of getting new players / characters T2-ready.

    Thank god. If it wasn't for the pieces I bought with raid tokens, I'd have a much better set of Tank gear than DPS/Heal gear.

    I hope your T3 solution is being able to sidegrade DPS gear into Tank gear with Crusader Accelerators (and only Accelerators, no Amenders or Heart/Eye equiv). The less wasted loot, the better.
