"Loot is the immediate reward you receive from the monsters"[edit]

as found here [1]

Just trying to clear up confusion i found in the interpretation, does this mean that loot is automaticly put in your bag, or just that it's the first thing that you can get killing monsters and is just "immediate" compared to the Gold/Quest Rewards? what do you guys think? --AlbinoAce 05:57, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

Obviously "immediate" in the sense that you get it right after something dies. However, "loot", when defined as "items or equipment" is something you'll only get from killing stuff, and not as an event reward. Arshay Duskbrow 06:06, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
Okay, cause i thinking since it's now a persistant world with many players that can be in the same area, even killing the same boss for example, that dropping all the loot on the ground for players to pick up would become extremely clustered, thats why i was thinking maybe they meant like an insta-pickup. also should we change the article text from "and is not one of the rewards for event participation" to something like "however, loot is not a reward for event participation"?
Uh, that means exactly the same thing, and is less cumbersome the way it is. Arshay Duskbrow 06:25, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
mmmm yeah, i just think it doesn't sound right saying "and is not a reward for events" probabaly its just me though. I agree, it should stay the same just to keep things simple --AlbinoAce 06:40, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

High level loot in low level areas[edit]

I got a question that is not answered very clearly in the wiki. Lets say you are a level 60 character walking around in a level 10-15 area, is the chance for dropping a "good" level 60ish item as high as if you had been walking around in a level 60 area?

or is the chance for dropping a good item that you can actually use only high in the level 60 area? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

This is what has been confusing me. What are the rules on loot it is most obvious with splendid chests i can loot it at the same time as a guildie and get zone equivalent drops while he gets level equivalent. I have also had it the other way round however i had been playing for longer that day. Can anyone confirm or deny this theory that you have to have been actively playing for a time to get level equivalent?DemonthornUser Demonthorn sigicon.jpg 11:07, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Getting to much loot[edit]

I noticed that you get less loot the more often you kill one sort of enemy. So if you start doing some defend events in orr you get like 10 items per monster wave and after 3 events you start getting less and less loot. Do I have to go somewhere else or do I have to wait some time to get more loot again? I found nothing about that system.

I believe the system is if you farm the same mobs for more than an hour you will get reduced drops however i dont think there has been any official info on how long this lasts. DemonthornUser Demonthorn sigicon.jpg 11:00, 18 September 2012 (UTC)

Unfair system for Mesmer support[edit]

I'm finding the system very unfair for Mesmers. They have far less damage output than other classes, especially if you play a supporting role and spend most of your time buffing other players and focusing on enemy condition planting. Haven't had a single chest yet from any of the major bosses, despite being present from the start of many battles.

Loot "Bags"[edit]

i was wondering, do Bags we get as loot drops (e.g Heavy Moldy bag, Tiny miner's bag) count as immediate loot (i.e subject to magic find rules), and therefore net better items the higher magic find a character has? --Rapid Sausage 08:23, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Magic Find does not affect loot bags.--Relyk ~ talk > 08:31, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

Little chests[edit]

There's nothing on this page about the little chests that appear on the ground for rare and above items. It's a "Wooden Chest" for rares, right? Ascended items are "Steel Chest", does anyone know what exotics are? Manifold User Manifold Neptune.jpg 03:56, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

What's the definition of "rare" in the phrase "rare drop"?[edit]

I assume it is some percentage, but I can't find it defined anywhere. Daddicus (talk) 06:00, 17 June 2019 (UTC)
