    How do you handle DL Drops?

    I've read a tonnes of different things and I'm always wondering if what we have in place for our shell works best considering all the different points of view. Maybe there's a fresh idea out there I haven't thought of yet.

    Anyone wish to share their LS's handling of DL loot?

    Pretty much seniority, if I recall correctly. With PLD&NIN job priority I suppose. Though I can't remember the last time we've approached DL.

    Long time dedicated PLD are selected to random for the mantle. Ring is open bidding for every PLD and NIN, but we've never seen any drop.

    Too bad we doing DL only every 2 months. -.-

    As long your mithra war/sam/blm can lot, it should be fine.


    I never cared much about it, but I believe it should go to pld and nin first. In your (our?) case, the shell is made up of random people, some of them are probably not even in HNM shell, so I guess it can't work that way.

    I would say 3/4 of the highest number of points is a decent amount to determine who has worked hard enough for the shell to lot on this rare item. I'm still going to slap personally whoever lot on it with job that wont tank or put to use the ring, even if they have the point for it.

    I run a point based open Dynamis LS.

    Mantle/Ring both cost 20 points. That is equivalent to about 2 1/2 months of 100% attendance without winning a single other item.

    Same here.. its the only item in the goddamn game I do that for too.

    Rings we do slightly differently, I give them to dedicated nins first, but then we have NEVER SEEN a ring.. so its sorta moot.

    People get mad.. but I don't care.

    PLD by senority, top 6 PLDs can lot for drops. If you win one, you're back to the bottom of the pile. Too bad we only get mantles :/

    LS Leader(me) and Officers make/revise a list when necessary of the people we feel most deserve it. Usually our PLD/NIN/WARs who have been with us the longest. Our reasoning is that they tank for our Dyna shell and would use it for us (since we are mix of LSes).

    Kinda sucks tho, all our Shadow Gear has left the LS. Just shows that even if they are some of the longest standing memebers, they may not stay anyways.

    Eloquently said from everyone. I think we'll make a few changes, but we'll revisit this one. Gonna do a raid in 2 weeks and likely another shortly after that. DL has been calling me while I sleep and he's been an annoying drunk again...

    Time we put him down again and remind him whos boss... :D

    Thanks for the input.

    Things like this make me want to level PLD so I can utilize it even better on my RDM.

    It's just an opinion I hold of my own, but there's so many items in this game that go to "PLD ONRY" first which makes me /cry. /emo

    How do you point to self?

    point system.


    leader points, someone lots

    We charge a set 30pts to lot Shadow Mantle with priority going to PLD the to NIN and WAR and then to rest of the shell.

    For Shadow Ring, we charge 30pts. Lotting is availble to entire shell.

    If someone wins 1 Shadow item they cannot obtain another unless no one else wants to spend the points.

    1 run = 1pt btw and we use a tiered bidding system for AF2.

    In 13 DL kills we got 5 mantles and 1 ring.
