Good morning! Hope you're weekend went well, lot of Halloween decorating for me but that's about it.

Ok so question for you all about PvE gearing in WoW. How often should players get loot? Do you feel it's to low? to high? should mounts and pets be counted the same as gear loot?

Share you're thoughts.

I can hear Arua's mind now: "Help the Almier, or escape. Help the Almier, or escape...." Yes, they're the enemy, but in this situation, I feel she's still going to feel conflicted.

Mounts/pets are supposed to be on a completely separate loot table from gear, but no one but Blizzard knows how the system does the internal calculations. I've been saying for a long, long time that Blizzard needs to return to a Valor point type gear system, and let players work for gear the way the player wants to. It would still give Blizzard their MUA/"incentive to play" metric.

We are in the final week of October voting. Quick review:

10/4 - 10/11 60 weekly votes, 8.57/day #299 on the list.
10/12 - 10/17 68 weekly votes, 9.71/day #296 on list.

Last week 10/18 - 10/24: 59 weekly votes, 8.42/day average; rank #297. Slightly weaker, but as of this morning things are looking good. We can do this, everyone just keep voting every day.

I did like how the valor system add predictable gear time expectation. If you can know where players are going to be gear wise in a time frame you can line up you're content release with that.

I don't have too many complaints about the PvE loot but then again, I've been leveling through dungeons at the moment on my healer to get her to current content. The loot chances that i didn't like were the legendaries in Legion. Either you got absolutely none for the longest time, or you had a plethora constantly come in. It's not very legendary anymore if everyone has them from World Quests!

That legendary gear deal was horrible. I think the first thing I got was a ring shield of some kind from a mob in the broken shore place.

Oh, I saw today that Cyberpunk just got delayed a month. Sorry.

Ya that drew out some rage. I think maybe we have gotten to be too accepting of delays and maybe we need to expect developers to be better at planing out their time tables.

Also saw I didn't get a job I tested for with in the same hour. So ya 2020 is back on it looks like.

I don't do dungeons because my main are tanks and pugs are an abusive nightmare I stopped putting myself through. There should be nothing wrong with giving players the widest possible paths to gear the way they choose. WoW's Diablo expansion should be the absolute last time Blizzard ever abuses it's playerbase that way.
