    Loot Distribution Banner

    Nothing seems to cause more drama in a guild or raid than loot distribution. It never seems to matter how or why someone got a piece of gear from a raid boss, someone else is always upset.

    That is why, over time, many different systems have evolved in MMO’s, including World of Warcraft, to help deal with this issue. In general, each one aims to make loot distribution more fair, even, and transparent. But are these systems even working and relevant in the newest expansion for World of Warcraft? How do they stack up in post-Cataclysm Azeroth, and which one is best?

    Hakkar

    So Blizzard has dropped a bombshell: Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman are returning to World of Warcraft as the newest five-man heroics. Who saw that coming? No one? I’m not surprised, to be honest. Until I saw the official English language post, I was convinced April Fool’s Day had come a month early.

    Datamining is a double-edged sword. As someone who has been writing professionally about World of Warcraft since The Burning Crusade, it means news. It means video, screenshots, new models and things to write about. But it also means very few surprises and that makes me very sad.

    GDKP Banner

    Back in Wrath of the Lich King there was a new fad that swept the servers of World of Warcraft and that fad was called GDKP. While it had been around in other games before and even in WoW on select servers it never really took off in WoW until the WotLK expansion and patches. In that time and really any time there is a long wait between raid instance releases, there have always been high level raid guilds that have all the available content on farm status. These guilds used to run raids with several core players, and filling it with other players willing to pay for certain items. This was fairly common on many servers. Think of GDKP as a modified version of that and you will not be far off.
