Default No Duplicate Loot

Lets say I want a raid mob to drop 3 unique pieces of loot from a single lootdrop,

the current lootdrop functionality doesn't seem to have a way for me to do that.

So instead I'm looking at adding loot through a Perl script instead.

Here's what I've got so far:

Code:
sub EVENT_SPAWN{
   my @item_PHARA = (1628, 1845, 1848, 2377, 10845, 10851, 10912, 10913, 24648); #loot list
   my $itemlist = @item_PHARA;
   my $item1 = $item_PHARA[plugin::RandomRange(0,$itemlist)];
   quest::addloot($item1, 0, 0);
  
  @item_PHARA2 = grep {$_ != $item1 } @item_PHARA; #remove first loot from loot array, then draw another item
   my $itemlist2 = @item_PHARA2;
   my $item2 = $item_PHARA2[plugin::RandomRange(0,$itemlist2)];
   quest::addloot($item2, 0, 0);

   @item_PHARA3 = grep {$_ != $item2 } @item_PHARA2; #remove second loot from loot array, then draw another item
   my $itemlist3 = @item_PHARA3;
   my $item3 = $item_PHARA3[plugin::RandomRange(0,$itemlist3)];
   quest::addloot($item3, 0, 0);
	}
It seems to mostly work, only problem is about 40% of the time only 2 loots are added instead of 3.

No clue if I'm using the grep function correctly, I tried googling how to remove a value from an array and that seemed to be a potential solution.

Thanks for looking

I see what you're trying to do but you're making it a bit more complicated than it needs to be.

There is a plugin that comes with the base install called "AddLoot" that does what you're trying to do already (minus the "unique" functionality).

Code:
sub EVENT_SPAWN {

	my @items = (1, 2, 3, 4);
	plugin::AddLoot(1, 1, @items);

}
^ brief example of how it works. If you want it be for sure unique you could either make 3 separate arrays. Or you could edit the plugin to return the ID of the item it chooses and then use one of these to edit your array accordingly.

Or just split the loottables up into 3 sets?

Yeah, I guess I'm confused why you don't just use multiple lootdrops...

Code:
sub EVENT_SPAWN {
   my @item_PHARA = (1628, 1845, 1848, 2377, 10845, 10851, 10912, 10913, 24648); #loot list
   #my $itemlist = @item_PHARA;
   my $item1 = splice(@item_PHARA, plugin::RandomRange(0,$#item_PHARA), 1);
   my $item2 = splice(@item_PHARA, plugin::RandomRange(0,$#item_PHARA), 1);
   my $item3 = splice(@item_PHARA, plugin::RandomRange(0,$#item_PHARA), 1);
   quest::addloot($item1, 0, 0);
   quest::addloot($item2, 0, 0);
   quest::addloot($item3, 0, 0);
}
Maybe try that, it should splice the array by removing 1 element and placing it into the $item1 variable... then 2 and 3 ect...


or go even further and do this...

Code:
sub EVENT_SPAWN {
   my @item_PHARA = (1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005, 1006, 1007, 1008, 1009); #loot list
   for $item (1 .. 3) { #drop 3 items...
	   my $item_drop = splice(@item_PHARA, plugin::RandomRange(0,$#item_PHARA), 1);
	   quest::addloot($item_drop, 0, 0);
   }
}
