    Default T3 Drops...consistent over abundance of Dexterity

    Title says it all

    T3 has been nothing but rogue drops. We shard dex belts and rings like candy.

    Probably because this is still in existence for T3 (even though it shouldn't be.)

    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.

    Jewelry/Accessory drops have been adjusted as well to account for Primalist.

    IKR, a 40% drop chance on leather is so broken when half your raid wears it!

    Loot system:
    Relative Armor/Weapon type participation determine the odds of drops!
    Or individual loot rolls.

    I really wonder if the thinking was that Primalists would be so popular in T3 that guilds would actually be able to gear and bring 4 of them.

    Nice job picking an outlier raid comp where it's the week we bring in new apps, have 3 of our mages sitting, 2 warriors sitting and not account for any that aren't here because of reasons.

    Besides, the amount of Leather that drops, why not bring em in for farm stuff where new apps can take it instead of Warriors taking it for tanking items.

    I, too, can post random raid comps tho:



    RIP CLERICS

    I REGRET NOTHING!

    Except for all the dex gear we shard just like everyone else. At this point we might have 6 t4 ready Riftstalkers/Titans

    I wonder if primalist-specific weapons weren't a thing, how many groups would bother bringing a primalist at all.

    This detail shatters my mind so massively, that it leaves me stunned to an extent where bystanders could think I was vitrified.

    Random thought for trinkets:

    Since the loot table is already so large on them, I think it would help to shrink it immensely and do something similar to the T2 GA trinkets where one trinket had several paths you can choose for the proc you wanted.

    You'll get the base trinket of just stats that drop and you can pick the upgrade path on them that you want.

    Code:
                             BASE STAT TRINKET
                            (wis, int, dex, str)
                                     v
                   v          v                 v             v
             TANK PROC     DPS PROC       HEAL ST PROC     HEAL AOE PROC

    I think that would be way better to spread around trinkets.

    Almost nothing but cleric gear the past few weeks We end up giving them for sharding/tank specs anyways
    Occasionally a few warrior drops and tank trinket.

    This is a throwback to a pretty old tier as well as a reference to at least one other game.. but at this point, might be worth mentioning....

    How about a particular item or single unit of currency, whose sole use is to purchase an item of type X from a vendor?
    Instead of a trinket that everyone already has dropping for the 100th time, a trinket 'currency' (for want of a better word) that you redeem at a vendor somewhere.
    Sure, the runecrafters will cry because you can't break it into mats when noone wants it, but would certainly allow players to get the pieces they want.

    Not a new concept, but one that would make a hell of a lot more sense than drops that occur too frequently, and help those that seem to have a huge run of bad luck with drops.
