ADVANCED LOOTING

Looting expedited!

The fight is over, what have we got? Do you want it, or do you not?- Bonzz

>>>>THIS PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION<<<<

In the old days, you had to click on each corpse and loot the item(s) they dropped (if you wanted them).

This often meant right clicking each item to evaluate if you wanted it, or not.

Further, if you were in a group, there would be a process, such as rolling (/ran) for each item, individually.

This all took time (after each kill) and truly slowed down active game time.

Now, with the Advanced Looting (/advloot) system, you don't have to do ever do that again (except maybe in raid settings, where DKP is usually put into play).

Advanced Looting really does speed up active game play. Even so, I know Players who refuse to use it and learn to use it (/boggle). Don't be one of those players! Advanced Looting will change your EQ experience for the better!

It may seem complicated on the surface, but it really isn't. Once you start to use it, it becomes pretty much intuitive.

With that said, however, initially, it does require a level of attention, but no more so than you would to manually looting corpses.

This time is, instead, used to make decisions for each "new" item that drops off of a MOB.

Once you select an option, you never have to do it again for that same item (unless you want to change it). Thus, as selections are set, better the experience gets, as you will have less and less "new" items to select a setting for. The long term result is far more time actively adventuring and less things left to rot (items left unlooted), which translates to more (free) Tradeskill supplies and perhaps even a fatter bank (from selling looted vendor items).

The lower window / section of the Advanced Loot Window displays details about items that have dropped. This column ("Item") is a graphic of the item(s).

This column is a "Status" window of a pending action with a given item (such as the timer for an automatic random roll will happen soon).
