I have a quick save from before I defeated the Dragon boss. If I beat him again will he drop possible different loot, or always the thing I got 1st time?

From my experience it has been they usually just drop the same thing again.

Yeah I figured bc I had a quick save right before another boss which was much easier and every time I beat him and tried to re load and beat him again same items drop lol.

Interesting though, didnt realize it had a formal name lol. "Save Scumming". Haha. Nice

Yeah, before you could save and fight the same boss (or level, dungeon, whatever) till you get much better loot as loot is randomly generated in many cases (there are some predetermined loots).

Now loot is created when level is generated and if you save, you save loot also.

In the case of random bosses, I generate their loot when they are spawned in the world, otherwise people would just respawn the area. I personally hate savescumming in games but end up doing it anyways when it works, so I think this makes the game more enjoyable. Loot can sometimes be bad, but when you figure out how to beat bosses you'll eventually get the good ones.
