1. Since Blizzard has removed Masterlooter and all loot is now “Personal”, raiders will have the option of Keeping any BOP gear that drops for them for any reason. With the “karma” system, keeping gear, say for offspec or transmog, will negatively affect your chances of being awarded gear from other raider’s tradable gear. This data is tracked through addons and "karma" will be one of the many data points the Loot Council will use to award loot (in addition to most benefit, attendance, attitude, etc).
2. Any BOE’s that drop during a raid can be equipped by the person they dropped for if they are a major Main Spec upgrade. Otherwise, they are the property of the raid team and will be distributed by the loot council for other Main Spec major upgrades. Otherwise, they will be sold for gbank funds to purchase cauldrons and feasts.
3. On tradable loot, priority will be given based on research showing which class benefits from the bonus the most, as well as overall benefit to the guild and our progression, which includes attendance as well as the overall DPS/Healing/Mitigation increase and karma.
4. Loot council will consist of all current officers and voting will be shown to all raiders for transparency.
5. Raiders will be required to install the addon RCLootCouncil (available in the twitch app) in order to notify the loot council their desire for an item.
6. In the event of a tie between loot council members, the Guild Leader will make the final decision.
Note: Choices are tracked within the addon and those using the “Keep” option often will be less likely to be awarded tradable gear. Buttons are listed in the order of priority the loot council will consider.
Only use this button if the item dropped for you but you are not wanting to trade it.
The item is an upgrade from what you’re currently. Include the % upgrade in the note (using updated pawn stat weights) or if it is a BIS item.
You’ll use it for a spec that you don’t often play in progression raiding.
You would only use the item for transmog
Considerations Loot Council will make:
Individual or Team Raider
Does the raider show up each week for all raid days, is on time and ready to go with all required items (Pots, Flasks, Runes, etc)? Raid times are what is listed on the calendar invites. Being tardy or unprepared, regardless of the reason, is unacceptable and will be looked at during LC.
Is the raider a positive or negative member of the team? Do they give up, ignore rules or assignments, complain about strategy, accept criticism, etc.?
Does the raider perform well and evolve performance in a positive manner? Does not continue to make the same mistakes; learns and corrects.
Requirements for Progression
Is the raiders lack of gear preventing progression? Do we need someone to perform a specific roll which needs specific gear?
New raiders must prove they’re a consistent and reliable member, dedicated to their team/guild. The time frame for this determination is typically 14 days but that’s not to say it will take that long to get loot.
Are there on-the-fly considerations or exceptions to be made; raiders may submit notes for special consideration all of which are taken into account before loot is distributed.
*These are general guidelines. The Loot Council will have final say in who gets what.
What we’re trying to accomplish is a fair loot system that awards those that are generous with their loot. As a Loot Council, we’ll be able to see how much gear a raider has kept and take that into consideration when they are trying to win other raider’s gear. We also want there to be transparency with what is happening with loot and no under the table deals (private trades to buddies) are being made within the raid. I don’t think I need to say it, but any attempts to circumvent these guidelines by holding on to gear to trade to a buddy after raid or not looting the boss so the loot goes to your mailbox, etc will result in immediate removal from the raid team. Officers are running addons that track all of that stuff, so don’t even try it.
