Loot System

A Loot System is any method to distribute items amongst a group of players. Whenever two or more players share some reward, they participate in a loot system, even if it's only the default roll system from Blizzard. Frequently, the terms DKP and "loot system" are used interchangeably, because DKP based systems are the most widely used type of formal loot systems. https://wowpedia.fandom.com/wiki/Loot_system

Tony tweets There's a lot of nuance here but the tradeoffs are something like:

  1. Loot Council rewards performance
  2. Dragon Kill Points rewards attendance
  3. Random Roll rewards mediocrity
    So it should come as no surprise that almost all top guilds use Loot Council.... If you want to go down the rabbit hole on loot systems just search for "loot system tradeoffs" and click around. Lots of passionate discussions to read from decades of raiding
