BFA dungeons not droping any loot?

General
So, I leveled to level 120 and I thought the best way to gear is to enter some normal dungeons/find a group for some heroics, so I started doing some. The first time this happened was in a normal Atal'Dazar where I cleared every boss with my group and non of the bosses actually dropped me any items, but only Azerite power. The second time this happened was in a heroic Shrine of the Storm which I did for more than an hour. I was on the last boss (so far haven't got any items from the bosses before that,) looking at the items thinking about my certain 25ilvl upgrade. Little did I know the boss didn't drop me anything and I wasted 1.5 hours of my time grinding 3% azerite power.

I have always thought that dungeons certainly drop at least one item per player but it seems I was wrong. I still don't know if it is a bug or simply a game mechanic though.

No, you got the azerite power as a consolation.

We're at the gearing up stage where heroics are actually used for gear so they wont introduce things like guaranteed loot from the last boss yet as it's very much relevant content (for a couple of weeks).

not really though - the higher you will be the better gear will be aviable from WQ . anyone pushing hard will be past hc dungeons in a week.
So once I hit lvl 120 I just put the toon to sleep and hop back on when the game actualy drips anything other than azerite. Got ya!
Ill just level up toons then no biggie. :)

Isn't it like everybody in the group has a 15% change to earn a loot piece per boss?
With that personal loot thing.
Yeah this is an absolute joke. Went three dungeons in a row, got nothing but this azerite !@#$.
i did 2 dungeons so far while leveling.
i got a piece of loot from both. a cloak and a wrist if i remember correctly.

the problem is that the dungeon boss loot i was getting was of lower item level than than my equipped green quest reward items!?!
so whats the point of it? to be honest id rather be getting azurite, than vendor trash gear.
I'm pretty sure that it's just the 15% change to drop an item per boss everybody has now with the personal loot.

A few things to help would be that every boss drops Azerite for everybody and then if you didn't get a gear piece you'd get bonus Azerite (like half what you gained of the first one).
Then when you finish the dungeon, every player that didn't get any gear would get a random gear that can drop from any boss within that dungeon, tied to your loot spec of course .. and maybe with an extra change of that gear piece being for your gear slot where you have lowest Item level equipped.
And that should take into account the gear you have stored into your bags and banks so people cannot abuse it.

Honestly it's thanks to the abusers we get half baked systems like these.
The loot system they have currently is terrible, I've done a lot of heroics and I barely get loot.
The secret is to do all quests to unlock later stuff.

in a day* :P
world quest hello lol do u even play ??
Hmm, done all the mythic+0 expect SoB, and i must say someone always got loot from boss. Most time everyone got one loot per dungeon, sometimes there was someone who got 2 items and someone got 0. This was also happening in other guild groups that were doing mythic+0. Dont know if the loot is different in M than hc or normal.
I know right. Did the mythic dungeons yesterday and i didnt even get my 1h sword for my healer. Got so many duplicates, had like 3 wrists and 2 backs. Its almost as if its rng....
not sure if you people noticed it, since patch 8.00, even legion dungeons already did this, even raids was like that, way less loot than before, thing is due to that being end game not many did heroics for loot so didnt realice it, but already in Antorus some items didnt dropp almost at all, specialy trinkets.
4 dungeons in a row and no loot. 20 mins wait for each dungeon. it is all too clear that the game doesn't want me to have gear
Trying to get geared, i did 4 mythic dungeons, and ended up only getting loot in one of them, where some people in my group were getting up to 2 items per dungeon, they need to fix this
People saying "Its RNG" or even slightly hinting to this being anywhere near "fine" must be crazy. o_o

This is not a matter of getting "wrong" loot, it's a matter of getting ZERO loot - from a heckload of bosses.
I've personally done 12+ bosses and gotten NOTHING.

It's actually offputting, hence less people even interested in doing this content...

This should not happen, 1 loot per dungeon guaranteed should be reintroduced as standard.
I really, really hate Artifact Power, Azerite power or any such stupid boring reward. If the next expansion has another stupid item we have to level up I am so done with WoW.
