Perhaps they could keep the quakes to raid only zones? Why all zones? That's the question. The other 500-700 people on the server not raiding don't appreciate it.

Well, most guilds back during live put restrictions on buying for alts. It always was main priority (or in the case of FoH, Furor gets first dibs lol) and then if no mains needed the item, then bids opened to alts. Why they wouldn't do that here kind of baffles me (if that's not the case. I don't know. I don't raid.)

NBG loot systems are just nerds trying to decide how other people should play and in practice they never do what they say on paper.

Check a guild's policies on DKP bids with respect to certain items before you join. Sometimes they will require a mandatory full DKP bid on certain in demand epic drops etc.
Aren't DKP guilds doing quarterly point adjustments?

It's a math thing but it's ez. You keep things feasible. You remove or add points in a ratio to how high or low you are. Do that every 3 months, recruits won't look at the DKP and say, "It will take forever." You never lose your "ranking" but the spread is compressed every 3 months.

Every respectable DKP guild I was in did quarterly point adjustments. Also raid % attendance. This creates more attendance predictability, more dynamic open bidding in /gu on drunk raiding nights, and significantly more attracting recruiting.

Most modern DKP systems have a falloff point where DKP from 6+ months ago is worth 0. I wish we had that here.

Why would you care about a quake in a non raid zone? Unless you're in a difficult to break camp or something why does it matter?

Hush, you. Showing up to 1 raid per month for 16 years is vital to my strategy for Vulak loot.
