So no doubt you read the update. But within it said; [quote]Obtaining loot from a given encounter means that character is not eligible to receive loot from the same encounter again in a given calendar week. This is often referred to as a "Lockout." I italicized “character” above, because if you have multiple Raid-ready characters, you can run the Raid again on a different character - and the Lockout isn't applied to it. Each encounter has a fixed inventory of items it can award to players, e.g., certain pieces of gear or weapons can only drop from certain encounters. Lockouts are cleared at the Weekly Reset.[/quote] What exactly is meant by an encounter? Does this mean that only raids will have a system in place to keep you from grinding them? Or does this extend to sorry missions and strikes? Does this mean grinding strikes won't get you the gear you're after in them? What happens if you beat a full raid and get nothing remarkable? Will I have to wait a week to try again, simply to walk out potentially empty handed once more? If this extends to strikes, I'm concerned... Once I'm max level, what would be the point of grinding if I can only get a single item per character per week? Edit: This was meant as food for thought. I hope someone reading this understands. Thank you to all that have made this post a joke. On a sincere note, Nightfall missions quell my worries.
It applies to raids only. You get one drop per week [i]PER CHARACTER[/i] you have that is raid ready. So you have a chance to get 3 drops a week.
