Now I might be triple tapping a dead horse here but like hear me out (including the people who have more clears and keys turned in), 43 Clears, 54 keys turned in. I'm sorry but there should be drop protection. You added it for bulls*** like EP where it pales in comparison to this. Last Wish has been out for 3 seasons, and on its fourth. It is a great raid. But plain and simply put: it's awful that players aren't being rewarded for commitment. I don't want to even try at this point. It's defeating to load up Last Wish each week just to be disappointed.... again. Here's some perspective for the devs and others: 43 clears is a minimum 15 weeks of commitment of running it on all three characters. Which all took commitment to get to where I could do it on my three characters. 41 weeks the raid has been out. Someone only able to clear it once a week still may won't even have as many clears, let alone the extra keys I've turned in. I have 74 hours inside that raid alone. In my 1170 hours of actual play time in this game, I have never seen anything needing to be fixed as much as this. I am actually getting a bit emotional each time I turn in a key now because when you actually want something, when you want to complete something like this and keep being defeated by something that you cannot change or conquer it hurts. Find the people who have 30+ clears and don't have it, and give it to em. You have the ability to find and do this with your API. Reward commitment. Please. I can go another season without bubble and thundercrash being buffed. But I will not be running Last Wish in Y3. I pretty much despise the raid at this point.
I got it on my first raid. Know what? I DIDNT DESERVE IT. I've done over 2000 forges and guess what, no Jotuun or Monarque. Guess what, RNG SUCKS. Don't hunt exotics, just play the game and you will get it eventually. Beating yourself up over loot is pointless.
I still don’t have the bow, got thousand voices though. This is why raids should reward gear more than once a week. Have your first clear each week be powerful rewards, then each subsequent run through drop normal level gear. That way you can keep farming the weapons or armor you need for the badge. This would especially be useful for the lairs that only have three drops in them for you to collect 5 armor pieces from and however many weapons.
