Realm Cultures

I did my 1st Heroic Instance run on Blackrock  today for the daily.

On the 1st pull a green dropped, and I greeded it.  I then saw that the other 4 needed it.

“Oh” I said ” you guys need your greens on this server”


“What about Orbs?”   Need too.

We went merrily on our way.

On Dath’remar   we Greed on greens, and Need on orbs.  There was a post on the Dath’remar forums recently that we are one of the few realms that need on frozen  orbs, and a horde pipped up, and said it was only Alliance that needed on orbs  – So not only are there realm cultures to learn, but faction cultures too!

    Earthen Ring: greed greens, /roll 100 (I left before orbs came into play and haven’t pugged since I went back)

    Azgalor: need greens, need orbs, /roll 1000

    Sentinels worked the same way ER did, which made Azgalor something of a culture shock.

    Yea it was a bit of culture shock when I went to Azgalor…Roll 1000? Why? They Need on all the greens, and I was like whatever.

    Wierd people over there on Azgalor…I fit right in.

    My server does greed except when it’s an upgrade or profession pattern. Strangely I don’t see much ninjaing despite us leaving ourselves vulnerable to a need roll. Every now and then there is the person who insists that BoEs are greed-only; I laugh at them.

    On my realm: greed on greens, greed on blues, greed on epics,need if you need it, everyone needs on BoE epics or mounts.

    There’s been another looting but that’s most only on guildruns: need on everything and if someone wanted it you can now trade it to them. Some people are achievement hunters and want the “needy” achievement.

    On The Sha’Tar we greed everything, unless someone specifically asks if they can need it. How strange…

    On Anvilmar its greed on everything unless there’s an enchanter willing to DE for the group (in which case, its usually roll at the end with highest roll getting abyss) need if Bop is an up, generally you ask if you can need on a blue BOE upgrade, but not everyone does. most shrug it off.

    all need on rare mounts/bags/pets/boss body parts/occasional epic BoE world drop. Raids are generally done with master looter where main spec takes priority for rolls

    that’s hordeside. haven’t pugged as much alliance side, but I think its basically the same, but given that we’re pve server and a lot of people have characters on both factions (me included) It makes sense for it to be about same.

    @Orcstar, we often do same in guild groups 🙂

    If everyone needs then it has the same effect as everyone greeding. Why add the confusion. Except for things you need, you greed.

    On Aman’Thul alliance side….most people just pass greens unless they have an enchanter…then they greed.

    Orbs? Who needs lvl200 crafted epics anyway? I just greed….should be able to make some high level food with them….Frosted Yak’s Orbs +10 to all stats for 1 hour.

    I love this topic.

    The culture on Barthilas had always been Greed for all gear except an item you will equip (Need) with the exception of crafting items from heroics – Primal Nethers and Frozen Orbs. These were always Need rolls.

    I went along with it until I started rerunning heroics for Emblems of Triumph. Seriously who needs a Frozen Orb when you’re at that gear level? They don’t sell well either, so I would always Greed – I didn’t want to win them. For months it would be Need, Need, Need, Need, Greed. But now when I run heroics I noticed that almost everyone will roll Greed too.

    So the culture is changing, or people are following my lead (unlikely), or they’re just impossible to sell now (likely).

    I’m on Nesingwary US server and it pretty simple there in Heroics. Greed on everything, Need if it’s gear you need or can use as in Blues or Epics. Greens you Greed. BoE Blues you Greed. BoP Blues/Epics you Greed, Need if upgrade. Orbs you Greed. CoT Epic Mount you Need if Need. As for my server that’s how it works. Never had issues with it. Raid is different.

    That is really interesting I didn’t know that different realms had their own set of rules. On durotan it is always greed for BoE stuff including orbs. Need if you need on bop otherwise greed. Rare mounts and what not are generally just need to prevent ninja.

    Guild groups or amongst friends usually do pass and then /roll.

      @ Everyone.. I had this awesome idea.. untill I found out a Premium Survey Monkey account would cost me 200 US. How awesome would it be to document every realm and factions little cultural differences.. We already have stuff like Pug rules, and raid traditions, it could be endless….
      Maybe if I win lotto…
