Seriously, VW loot system..come on. – Page 58.
I followed up with the development team to get an answer as to whether or not you need to already possess the rare/ex item to obtain a ticket. They said that you will in fact need to have the item in your possession and they are not planning to make it so you can give a ticket to someone else when you could obtain the actual item.
Also, to clarify the original post; each piece of gear will have their own ticket (and I’ve amended the original post for clarity). I’ve also seen questions about “will this apply to Heavy Metal Plates, too?” and the answer is no, this is currently planned for equipment pieces only.
Knew it. So you can’t even just turn a body you don’t want into a ticket. You have to have the body, have it on you and then should you get a second THEN take a ticket. As there is zero accountability to others in terms of seeing drops a lot of people won’t bother.
I mean teams of friends might of course but a lot of Voidwatch isn’t done like that. Why do you as a melee take a mage body you don’t need AND make sure you have it when you do that fight again in case you get a ticket? If your friend is lucky, it’s to help them out. If we’re unlucky it’s to help out your wallet. How many of these items do you think are out there SE?
Of course there will be tickets generated by people who have the body and need it so it’s not a disaster but honestly this is just pathetic as a response. The price of these tickets for some items is going to be ridiculous.
I’m just so glad that my WHM was so well geared it didn’t need a Heka body to cap cure potency… Would have been awesome on my RDM, SCH, SMN and BRD tho…
When I have the energy I’m going to write a response in the appropriate thread on the official forum.
I’ve just seen the post about the Dipper TH nerf… It’s kinda fun being the cranky old woman waving her cane at SE right now without having to actually deal with it.
