I can't tell you how many times I've killed a mob wielding a shield or fancy weapon type and then when I looted the corpse, it was not there. If they it doesn't show up on the corpse, they shouldn't be able to used it to fight me. No shield, sorry shield dude, you can't use the shield abilities. No katana drop? Sorry skelly, you'll just have to fight with your boney fingers and hope for the best. One of the better things I remember from my U7 days was that if I fought a tough enemy and beat them, I got all the cool stuff they were using. Does that mean we'll have a ton of stuff to sell from killing mobs? Yes, but we then have to start prioritizing loot types to carry out instead of gathering everything we get like table scraps.
