I'm here to talk about Raid Loot Distribution. What's wrong :
As we as players are progressing in raids and forming core groups with guild members and friends we see that people are having to bid against their
newly formed friendships and guildies to get gear they they all equally helped in downing and achieving.
What we can do right now:
Core groups are now realizing and sharing the loot as needed. We find people let one person bid on said item that way to not cause a bidding war between
guildies and needlessly spending gold.
As with our guildes and core 10 man what we like to do is use a "ROLL" command on a program such as Discord.
This way lets say all the rangers that need the item, all roll for it, highest one then bids on the dropped item.
However, the timing of of the auction goes so fast its hard to be organized and quickly find who needs what and have the people do their rolls in a 10 man
let alone getting 40 guildes in larger raids.
I understand a big way to get money is in these bidding wars with random groups. But honestly it just seems wrong, we fight and work together to progress
and to down a boss together then after fighting and accomplishing the raid. We then have to have the gold to spend to get an item, oh and hope no one has more to out bid you.
(farm everyday and hope those materials sell) Though I understand its part of the gold sink in the game.
My suggestion is we keep it to randoms and that's fine. However if you have a group of players all in the same guild there should be a master loot
option where the party leader can then distribute the gear to the correct players. You would all be in the same guild and trusting of the leader.
No gold would then be profited, but then also no gold would be lost.
( if master loot is to much, at least add a guild roll option on the gear where players that need it roll for it. Highest roll = item in bag // Think guild bonfire end event )
If your guild has a better way to gear distribution on a timed fuse to make sure correct guildes get the right gear without battling each other with gold please share!
