Loot Council is a relatively simple way to distribute loot. Whenever an item is involved in the loot system, a group of individuals decides who gets the item. Ideally, this group of individuals takes into consideration several different factors, ranging from attendance, performance, size of upgrade, and attitude. In some cases (often called "corrupt loot councils"), council members may make decisions based on friendships or personal bias. It's worth noting that Loot Council systems are the most popular method of loot distribution in world-class raiding guilds.
LootCouncil_Lite is a mod aimed at helping loot councils make more objective decisions. It provides an easy-to-use interface that enables council members to quickly compare all members interested in an item.
Guilds that have problems such as: shortage in attendance, too many “casual” raiders and people that does not put effort in raiding, drama related to loot, drama related to the alleged “inflation” of the Point systems will likely not benefit from this arrangement.
Guilds that have homogeneous raiding groups, a homogeneous commitment and attendance, non overcrowded guilds and guilds doing the very high end content of the game in server with little “competition” can benefit from this arrangement.
