Question - Handling collection quests (1 Viewer)

Morning all,

Still slowly getting into the swing of things with mq2. This morning I was doing mercenary quests in EoK for my new group, and realized there must be a better way to handle loot distribution of no trade quest items.

As I'm doing it now: loot X number (say 7) feathers on main, then right click and "give to" next character, and so on. I'm constantly having to tab over to recheck how many of what each toon needs. Furthermore to actually loot the items, since they are no drop, I'm also having to tab over and clear their loot window clicking "yes" to every warning about no drop on every.single.toon.

Can someone help me streamline this process please?

Big thanks.

I disabled the no drop warning, but this is what I am doing. Super annoying. I know MQ2autoloot can handle it, though I have no set it up beyond merchant loot selling.
Ok well that's a start. Is the no drop warning option a feature of EQ itself, or something with mq2?

I'll look into autoloot, thanks for the suggestion.

Go into the Loot.ini fie and set things there,

ring=destroy
ring=ignore
ring=Quest|#

advloot doesn't handle stacks of items particularly well (actually, at all well). if you have a Quest|3 entry and a stack of 6 drops from a single mob, neither advloot nor MQ2AutoLoot will dole out half the stack to Toon1 and the other half to Toon2. That has to be done by you, manually.

Sometimes quests only drop the right number of items, so if you over loot , then you can't complete the quest on your xth toon.

in situations like this I have usually read up on the quest before attempting it. You can set the .ini to quest item|ignore. This leaves it on the corpse and you can manually loot from there. Obviously if I don’t know ahead of time this doesn’t work. As I worked though epic quests this was how I handled it after my SK looted my cleric’s drop and I had to start all over 🤦‍♂️.

it’s not perfect and I’ve asked in the past if you can set an ini to where only a certain toon picks it up but I think the response was you can set classes but not toon names.
