I guess were just supposed to do the instances or kill the bosses for the fun of it.
Imagine that...a video game where you do content because it's fun. What a truly backwards idea, those dastardly Koreans!
PS - Yes I agree that a true raid boss dropping nothing is kinda messed up but seriously, your statement is symptomatic of everything that is wrong with MMOs today.
Nah, I think it's great that NCsoft isn't buying into the "ez mode" way of thinking. Of course they COULD have done that, it's extremely easy to change loot tables; it's at the touch of a button. Stop blaming "Chinese/Korean" racist BS, things shouldn't just be handed to you.
But I WORKED SO HARD, IT WAS SO HARD, I DESERVE IT! No, you don't. Why? BUT.. BUT MY FINGERS ARE KILLING ME! You killed something, good job. It's like ANY thing else in this world, you work hard and sometimes **** doesn't work out the way you intended but you try again with your comrades instead of just being fed items.
And besides, why is it that people want gimme items anyway? What IS the fun of that? It's not fun at all watching every single one of your class have the exact same weapons. It's exciting to see weapons that are GASP, RARE! It's something to talk about instead of "Oh, how many runs did yours take? 2? Wow, it only took me one lol"
I have to agree 100%, though I think in the case of something like a full raid boss it would be sporting to have it drop lesser grade loot commonly and the superb stuff rarely. Would it be wrong for killing a raid boss to reliably drop a blue piece or two? Nah, they did earn that. Make the gold pieces rare drops. That way you get the lesser prize (maybe, haha...after all there are a bunch of you there) for the kill but to get the really good, rare stuff means you did it and you got lucky. I'd like that system.
Fire Temple didn't bother me. As soon as I saw it was a rare drop system I knew everyone gouging their eyes out trying to farm that place was a chump. I ran it, but only casually, only a few times a night, no all-day farming like some people.
