Just a thought, but a new raid drop system would be nice. Instead of making stuff randomly drop into someone’s inventory, use a token system. Like every time someone attends a raid, and damages the targeted boss, and stays for that boss to die, you receive a “raid token” or something of the sort. Then you can turn in those tokens to a NPC, like the queen, and it will give you a random item usable by your class, that is over xx item level. Thoughts?

As much as i love the random aspect of xen loot, bossing is tedious, i think one token per week to hand in for a random item per char would be great.

+1 would be nice to see this. I just don't think it has been emphasized enough to EJ. I've done at least 100 raids and still no item. Even these increased boss spawns aren't really helping the issue. Last time the boss spawn event happened I went to like 10 raids before giving up. I still never heard of anyone getting anything either.

give out shards for attending raids to turn in for items/pots/gold. The more people at the raid more shards, then everyone will want bigger raids.

The raid loot system is definitely the next thing he should look at and come up with a new idea on how to give out loot.
It is so dumb that most items that drops goes to classes that can’t even use it.
It’s bullshit and really takes the fun of raiding away

Please do this... I've been raiding for 4 months and I have not received any items. I have been in raids where items drop to players who don't need but I do. Now that all my characters are 70 all I do is raid, but I'm quickly losing motivation to play. Raids have so much potential and should honestly have increased spawn/drop rates. I do not see any issue with having guaranteed drops on kills and then a trade once option or a token/roll system.

Even if bosses drop an item every time they are downed, it doesnt mean the game will be flooded with gear, people will continue raiding to try to get perfect props and they are still limited in ndnt gear. Raids could also offer a turn in quest for like 5-10mil experience to help boost players to their repulls and give motivation to help newbs raid.

The whole raid system is lacking, and its so unfortunate because it is such a large part of the end game for Xenimus. Hopefully we will see some changes. I just don't understand the reason behind making it take months or even years to get a single item.

Between spider/cron/DD I've killed over 50-60 bosses and I've never once gotten an item. I stopped raiding because I could have spent all that plat on the gear I was raiding for and been guaranteed loot.

The raid system for end game bosses seems very lackluster currently. The bosses are fun and fine in difficulty, but the reward just isn't there, especially since it's on a spawn timer that 1 link at a time can control. I'm lucky if in the 7 hours I can play during the week 1 boss spawns.

I would love to see more reward from bosses, as I think it's the best part of Xenimus currently.
