    Group loot free drops

    I heard a rumor today, which I don't believe.

    The rumor intimated that when you are in a loot free group that there is a strong tendency for the loot to be for those skills of the leader of the group. Is this just hearsay or is there something to it?

    That is correct from what I found. When I am playing with my friend and we set the loot to free, the random mob loot always uses the skills of the leader of the group ( minus the usual random skill mods creeping in once in a while that don't match anything). Loot from chests will still match the skills of the person looting rather than the leader's, and I believe loot from bosses as well. We've been using this method quite reliably to control which loot drops.

    /loot turns will correctly have the item mods match the skills of the person looting.

    From my very very brief experience with it, /loot unchecked may also match the skills of the person looting rather than the leader. We haven't done enough testing with that setting though to be sure.

    That free behavior doesn't seem "right".

    /loot free is absolutely jacked up and functions the way you described,the leader of the group's skillset is what gets dropped.

    I didn't realize it was the group leader's skillsets, I don't group very often. But now that you mention it I do get ice magic and psych mods way too often (when I'm not using them myself), grp leader using that combo.

    All the blame on me. Next time we start a group, remind me to ask who wants loot!
