Celestials and Loot...

Now is it really possible? 15 weeks and still not a single drop...Even on coins still gold. Thats 30times chance to get atleast something stupid like pvp crap or anything, but nothing? How is this roll protection working, if there is any at all...I honestly give up on them.

This RNG...Does it stand for "Really Need Gold" or what the flying crap is that... :p

Killed them every week on three characters, still nothing but gold.

I hate RNG.

I've had some luck in LFR recently but from World Bosses not a chance. The only times I've ever had loot from a "real" boss is when I've just burnt 2.2k Valor, a bunch of expensive gems and an enchant on a pair of pants. Next boss kill: BOOM pants drop. It happened a few times in Lich King and Cataclysm. Third time I told the raid beforehand that I'd just bought new valor pants so getting the tier pants was 100% sure drop for me. They just laughed at me saying "yeah right", half an hour later I was saying "told you so"...

I think the RNG god smiles apon me, if you check my recent activity i was able to more or less get my item level to where is now within 2-3 days this is coming from having normal dungeon gear/3 part hc dungeon gear and greens. Also came online few days ago, just as i zoned in i saw people attacking the celestial, thought screw it, jumped in and got given my gloves, only been logged for about 3 mins :/. also got given 2 of those timeless upgrades things, emirty something something, also got a third. If i could i would give you my luck.

Very interesting question without a transparent answer, I don't think.

Did you roll on any bosses in between your Celestial wins? I'm not sure if it was specifically stated, but it's possible that the roll protection doesn't apply to individual bosses, but rerolling in general. For instance, if you beat Xuen five times, you have a 5x 'luck' multiplier. Let's assume you kill Oondasta then and your reroll wins you something, your 'luck' multiplier may return to 0, so when you fight Xuen, you lose out yet again and the process repeats.

To reiterate, I don't think it's ever been said that 'roll protection' applies a unique counter to every boss, but rather a fixed counter across all available bosses, but this is all speculation.

Based on what I've seen, anecdotal evidence and no transparency whatosever, it's also quite possible that the line about 'roll protection' was purely fictional and the game wasn't modified at all with such a system. Players wouldn't be able to tell for sure either way.

I didn't even know there had been rumours of such a thing!

Sounds weird, and but makes sense that it would be across any loot rolls that you do regardless of encounter. The Celestials have definitely been contributing to my good fortune in LFR if that is the case...

Ive done Ordos two weeks now.
First week i got Head and Shoulders.
The second week i only got Waist.
So i wasted a warforged seal and only got Money. Poor me. :)
Hopefully i get a couple of more next week.
And on Celestials i got a ring this week. Not too bad.

I have gotten one PvP item from the Celestials and the same belt 2-3 times from Ordos. A pretty decent belt though, no good belts have dropped in our raid so I'm actually still using it.

On my warlock during ToT i didn't get 1 tier item at all, the one pants i have came from nalak, oh happy ember building after the nerf (funfactorsquish)
On my warrior(main) i'm not getting the tier helm or the garrosh axes or the essence (got that on priest yay) in soo no matter how much i roll
On my priest and least important char of the 3 i get 3x tiers in soo O_o

On my warrior i would have had a huge collection of weapons if i kept them all. I have the choice out of 4 trinkets of which 2 only are bis. I got a huge load of haste gear which is pally gear, set specialisation on fury apparently is useless.

I gave up on killing Nalak and pretty much on celestials, Ordos i didn't but will come soon™

The whole system is giving me the feeling that i'll only get more or less useful stuff when i roll.

I didn't get a single useful item off Nalak during tot and I got nothing from celestials until 2 weeks ago where I got pants 1 week and gloves the next for my off spec which was nice :)

I don't use coins on worlds bosses that drop pvp gear btw but I have killed them every week they were relavent.
