    That varies from game to game. In eq1 that was true, in WoW arena loot is better than raid loot (arguably) since the emphasis is on PvP. Eq2 strives to encourage all playstyles (according to "vision") and thus had never made best loot obtainable just by raiding, instead mixing and matching different styles to completely outfit the character. Looking at the history of eq2 since launch, I think this is the trend that will continue. If you think this is bad right now, wait until LDoN 2.0 comes out with some of best gear coming from points earned in heroic 20-minute dungeons (and I am willing to bet 100 plat that this will happen).

    In WoW PvP loot is not better than PvE loot for PvEing. The best PvE loot comes from Raiding, period. There is nothing better for PvE than Raid loot. People use raid loot as a means to get PvP loot.

    Because the dev team is constantly changing and switching around and the way they make/distribute items has been too. This leads to the problem which you perceive to be intended.

    The intention in EQ2 is that raids are more rewarding, they just fuck it up all the time.

    In EQ1, the good thing about LDoN were the augment choices it gave you. Considering transmuting does that in this game, I am interested to see if they continue the trend. I would like to see some unique adornments available from the missions, but who knows what we will see at this point.

    A perfect system would have raid points and heroic points in a similar system, with raid gear simply being enormously expensive for a heroic player. That way raiders could stock up on gear and adorns fairly quickly, and joe casual could run zones for 3 months solid and maybe get his hands on a piece of raid quality gear.

    Either way I am excited to hear LDoN is making a return in some form or another. Hopefully they also have a leaderboard and "hard" mode missions which reward more points (for raids and non raids).
