ADVANCED LOOTING

Looting made simple!

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 each item that dropped. And if there was something more than one player (in a group) wanted, there would a process, such as rolling (/ran) for each item, individually. This all took time and truly detracted from 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. It may seem complicated on the surface, but it really isn't. However, at least initially, it does require a level of attention as you make select a Looting option for each "new" item that drops off of a MOB. Once you select an option, you never have to do it for that same item ever again (unless you want to change it).
