Loot Rules, Customization, and Dye in Guild Wars 2

Updated Tue, Oct 05, 2010 by Xerin

ArenaNet just revealed how loot will be handled in Guild Wars 2 along with loot customization (with over 400 dye choices available to color player's armor). Is loot distribution going to be fair, how customizable will armor be in GW2, and will everyone look the same because of it? These questions and more are answered in our latest look at Guild Wars 2.

Guild Wars 2 is going to take a similar approach that Dungeons and Dragons Online takes by assigning loot individually instead of to the group. So everyone who assists in destroying a boss will have an equal chance at getting a reward instead of having to divvy up the plunder and deal with all of the drama, the out of game loot systems (like DKP), and everything else.


GW2's loot system, armor customization, and dye choices are all discussed here at Ten Ton Hammer.
