LFR drop rate.

Sorry if this is a bit of a whine, but something seems a bit off here.

I have run 2x Guardians + 1x Vault on my Priest and 1x both on my Monk. I have got 1 whole item from all of this. A guildie has run 2x Guardians + Vault on two chars and got six items. I know a lot of it is luck, but that seems a bit broken to me. He used NO bonus item coins, I have used bonus item coins on EVERY boss for 2x Guardians and 1x Vault. I'm feeling a bit shafted as everyone I talk to seems to be rolling in loot. Am I just being really unlucky or is there something I don't know about?

It's luck. Nothing more, nothing less.

Yeah, as Adayne says, it's all about luck. You can increase your luck with the Elder Coins, but the result is still just going to rely on pure luck.

If it's any comfort, then I've also done LFR and Sha of Anger each reset so far, and I haven't gotten a single item yet. And every time I've used an Elder Coin, I've just gotten gold.

It's just luck, or lack thereof :P

You get 2 Lesser Charm of Good Fortune from each daily Quest you complete in Pandaria. Once you've 90 of them, you can complete Weekly quest which grants you 3 Elder Charms of Good Fortune.

You can use these Elder Charms to grant you additional roll on Raid Bosses, such as LFR.

Oh thanks i didn't know that,so people saying dailies aren't needed are talking complete rubbish? Because if people that do them get granted more chance of loot then me then obviously i am at a disadvantage not doing them!

Yes, but are you in a guild that competes for server first kills? If not, it doesn't matter at all if it takes a little longer to get loot (and it's all chance, no guaranteed loot, so even with charms you can't be certain that it helps).

ps. I got 3 pieces of loot from LFR (on hunter), including the bow, and two sigils, without using any charms.

Nah i'm trying not to be pessemistic about it but currently i aren't raiding at all and working hard to get a half decent set together to start applying around,but i dont nor ever have enjoyed the daily quests so i refuse to do them.

It's not out of lazyness,i have done alot of grinding in this game over the years and aslong as i find it fun i'l do it but its quite unfair that people have an advantage with chance of loot aswell as the rep rewards?

I feel like i literally have to do them because even when i just have fun with my friends and do dungeons and gain VP,i arent even allowed to spend them on anything except the 1 peice that i had enough rep for during my leveling experience.

I know people have mixed views and i aren't trying to spark arguments i'm just wondering if it's likely they will change the system at anypoint? Blizzard costantly promoting playing with friends and things like that but then makes anyone on the raiding scene to play hours per day questing alone?

baffling.

Are you jealous of all my LFR loot?

(PS: this is my alt, my main hasn't won anything ¬_¬)

Haha its very nice indeed and pretty typical that you got it on your alt,although i presume your in a raid guild so it wont matter for long? Where as i need to find someone that will look past my gear and give me a trial to show that i'm decent and reliable,people tend not to care when they don't see many purplez.

I have always suspected this to be true.

I have got same experience. On my paladin I killed 60 bosses in lfr and only got like 5 items, I used 3 coins for bonus roll - no reward at all. On my priest there is same ratio except just without using bonus rolls. But it was announced that in 5.2 there will be higher drop rate, I am just not sure if it will be increased for LFR drops and/or for bonus rolls. Hopefully both because this can be pretty frustrating.
