Patch 188.8.131.52.1…. Is treating me pretty well I think, but I wouldn’t be my usual well adjusted Gnomish self if I didn’t bitch about something, so…
Auto-looting is great.
One head goes into the boss’ sack and passes the badges about. The biggest issue is I often panic that I didn’t get the badge, but all good.
Maybe I don’t need the spam when the other 24 folks get their badges, just tell me about mine.
Missed by that much…
Thing that annoys me about this is why couldn’t Blizzard go one teeny weeny step further and give us auto looting of quest drops.
You see I did a Heroic Culling of Stratholme.
It was the daily quest.
I just needed to grab a bosses head.
But I didn’t!
You see I have become so used to the badges flowing into my backpack and the gear popping up a roll screen that I just plain forgot to loot the boss.
Problem is you can’t go back later. Arthas may know how to open that bookshelf, but this little Gnome was left scratching his flowing green beard.
That’s my issue.
Please fix it blizzard.
More loot information please…
On a slightly different topic, I wish that when the 1st person stuck their head in the boss’ sack while looting via master looter, that the items got automatically linked.
I appreciate that one should know whether there is any loot that one wants off a boss, but if the 1st time you see what the item is is while you are getting the 3. 2. 1. countdown… It’s a bit late.
See I prefer to stay away from boss mobs. I don’t care if they are alive, or theoretically dead. I learnt my lesson as a kid.
Don’t stand on the dead bull ant – it will still hurt you
I always figure that my nose is best left out of the loot unless I want something.
Problem is if the looter doesn’t link them the viewing window is a bit small.
Hell, should I roll on the 1st item when I don’t know that the 2nd item is?
Just link it up automatically Blizz. No fancy loot window, just a message to chat will me fine.
It can all be traced back to my childhood
This all reminds me of a traumatic experience I had as a kid… Probably about 26 years ago.
I was at a D&D tournament with my mates.
Our team, Leftovers, was primarily composed of mates, but even back then I had to PUG for a raid!
Anyway, we came 2nd place in the tournament.
We had some awesome fights, which while maybe not being heavily roleplayed (the winning team were awesome roleplayers btw), we were definitely creative.
After one such fight, we had to rest, for a week of game time.
After we heard the results, our DM on the day came over, offered commiserations, then quietly informed me that if we had looted that mob, we would have won the tournament.
One week and we didn’t notice the big sack of loot hanging off the giant’s giant rotting corpse?
Mind you, back in those days tournaments were as much speed runs as anything, and first rule was ignore the loot… It wasted time.
Anyway, moral of the story (this is pointed at you Blizzard). The DM, who was a lovely guy, spent the 30 seconds after divulging his secret very dry.
The rest of the day, once be dragged himself out of the nearby pool, was very wet.
Don’t get wet Blizzard.
More auto looting please!
PS: One step closer to being the most beloved Gnome in Gnomeragan!
Gnomer and Out!
