TAKP at least has a steady stream of people levelling alts, since PLing is easy when you can box.
And a surprising number of totally fresh players, honestly, especially since Luclin dropped. I especially see a lot of RL friends / couples levelling lately. Especially couples -- seems like every other newbie I run into lately is part of a husband+wife duo.
I'd like to hear the reasoning behind this. DKP literally was the most fair loot system as it promotes those who actually have been there for a while to get first dibs if they had the money for it.
And wasn't Hate opened after the Kithicor Forest event? I went from level 46 to 44 just from that fucking night. That GM event was so fun -- people realizing the only way to damage the enemies was by healing them, lol.
'Fair' is however you define it, and you're just describing a seniority system. DKP is an abstraction of character value that removes consideration of any contribution that character might make to the guild other than killing a dragon. DKP systems which attempt to include non-dragon kills in DKP just create more avenues to game the system. A good leader or council of leaders with their finger on the pulse of the guild's activity is infinitely more fair than DKP, according to how I've just defined it.
Yeah, when you break it down a loot council of no more than 3 people is the best way to handle loot. Not enough to where it's unfair for people not on the council and enough to argue something that may not be obvious.
