Onyxia 25 was forming – I joined, we were doing well untill the 2nd phase of whelps. Raid wiped – raid leader Dc’s people start leaving, someone starts to reform. Thinking I might be able to salvage it, I stick around. The raid leader of the reform then whispers me wanting to know what loot I’m after – I tell him helm, he says he wants the cloak.
He was checking to see if I was going to roll on the cloak before we had even got 25 people in the raid. My brain ticks. Guildless raidleader, with master looter wanting loot bad enough to check with a dps that they don’t want it before we even formed. Ninja warning ! went off in my head.
Maybe I was being overtly paranoid – I didn’t know this person from squat – it’s just purple pixels blah blah , what do you expect from pugs ect. I was getting a clear impression that he wanted me to say ” I will not roll on that cloak”
We still see people in pugs though not wanting to stack the raid with more than one of their class/spec so as to get better loot chances, what was going to stop him from kicking me if he thought I was a threat to his loot, even if he was a boomkin. Didn’t want to risk it, and so I left the raid with a . ” “I don’t do loot deals sorry” If I told him I didn’t want the cloak if it dropped and I rolled on it then he would loot it to himself because I said I didn’t want it, and if I said I wanted the cloak then he had the power to remove me – as I owed nothing to him, he owed nothing to me
It’s early in the raid week – I don’t think I will have many issues picking up at least the base of the 10′s and 25′s – the TOGC’s because I haven’t fully cleared them look to be a problem 4/5 for TOGC 10 and 3/5 for TOGC 25 - the Pst achievements seem to be essential to get an invite.
