It is supposed to be rare, for golds, so the loot isn't going to be evenly distributed among the players anyway. That's why the pRNG system is fair. Guaranteed drops from raids is also fair; but the have-nots will be different subsets of players. The best system, to me, within the limits of golds are supposed to be rare, is to have both methods, so that as many subsets of players have the same opportunities and have the same expectations. That means that players who want them badly enough can get them and everyone else can hit the jackpot every now and then, upping the demand .

On planet Earth, there is a try.

We old vets need to keep in mind those who come after us.
