    @Brasse , Question for the upcoming Loot Buff Event

    For the upcomming loot buff event, i would like to know once and for all
    how do LOOT buffs work in a Party/Raid/Co-Raid situations, if they even work?

    When you are playing alone, buffs seem to work properly.

    Once you start a party/raid, people are confused to how the loot is calculated...

    is it First hit?
    is it the guy who loots, who has to be buffed?
    mabey its last hit?
    or is it the guy who does most dmg? (in a boss scenerio)
    do you need to have Lootmaster?
    if you do have lootmaster, do you disable dice rolls?

    mabey it calculates the average drop rate of the party/raid
    so everyone has to buff?

    ------------
    Story short, Trion is selling 60% loot buffs in the cash shop for credits & inside RNG boxes , real $$,
    we would like to have some explanation about how do loot buffs work in a Party/Raid/Co-Raid situations

    Thanks in advance!

    I did a bunch of testing with the 60% loot buff on the PTS. It was only about 6 hours worth of buffs. I don't know how it works, but I can tell you that it isn't the person doing the killing or the looting.

    If I was in a party with the buff and one other character without, I could find no drop differences between having the buff and my baseline 30 minute single no buff test.

    It was easily noticible in my baseline single character buff test though.
    Epic Erenor Scepter - 856 Magic Att, 733 gimped DPS.
    Epic Erenor Katana - 815.3 DPS.
    Epic Erenor Bow - 693 DPS... worse than the gimped weapon even though it's a primary weapon.
    "Balance" . . . This doesn't even take in to account the 978.4 epic erenor nodachi, or 978 mAtt staff.

    People feel scammed, since it might not work as intended in a party/raid,

    which means that Trion has to include in the description that theose buffs are for Solo playing...

    I don't think they know themselves, And there wont be the resources to find out either. People have asked this question for years, Muzzy tried to find out but came back with "I dont know"

    To me it feels more like its based on the gearscore rather than on the loot buff rate: when i farm with my main, gearscore 13k and only 10% lootdrop rate, i farm around 15 pieces in half an hour, with my alt account, 6k gearscore, and same lootdrop rate, i farm 4 pieces, if i'm lucky. And this for several weeks yet...

    doesn't the 13k kill a lot more mobs in the half hour than the 6k? Drop rate will be based on number of kills per <insert time limit>

    If you are killing 200 an hour with 13k and 100 an hour with 6k, theres definitely going to be a difference in the number of pieces acquired per hour, between the characters
