Question of looting corpses

#1AegorexPosted 4/29/2013 11:52:30 AM
Hello fellow gamefaqs fans. I used to play wow been during wotlk and recently been mesing around with a trial account. I've noticed that if I have multiple corpses to loot if I loot one the rest are no longer looting able (being shinny). Now if I kill then loot and the next one dies after I looted the first I get loot from both. Is this something new they implanted? Or this some sort of restriction on a trial account. I hope its the latter cause I've read people soloing old raids and don't most of it involve gathering up all the adds and aoeing them down?

its an aoe loot meaning you loot everything in the surrounding area. Notice that you get mores stuff when you loot with more dead bodies around

I think you get all the loot at once now.I base this off of the amount of loot I got killing 10 mobs at once.

Ah so by looting one body you are now getting the loot of all the nearby corpses? Hmm guess I didn't notice the extra but guess that answers the question. When did that get implemented? Be a lot less clicking. My guess when soloing old raids became pretty common?

This. I think you can also turn it off in your interface options if you don't like it for some reason, but I don't know why you'd want to do that as it's so convenient.

You couldn't last I checked. It would be nice to have a single loot option as a skinner-- nothing like finishing off a pack of skinnable mobs, looting them... and then having some rogue come along, take half of them from under your nose, /lol, then go back into stealth.

Yeah they need to update skinning so that people can't just steal your skins if your a skinner because of aoe looting probably easiest would be to just loot the leather at the same time you loot the corpse
