Loot Griefing.

I am endeavoring to take more screen shots of all the funny things that happen  – Would you believe I STILL can’t find my Screen shot folder on my 64 Bit Windows so I have to SS and then paste into Gimp.   I even installed Piccaso to try and see if it was hiding in some odd directory.

Big Bear Butt had someone in a LFG that griefed someone about winning a loot roll and then I got one tonight in a VOA 10 man pug.  I won Relentless Gladiators Cloak of Deliverance

So I couldnt let it go,  and I looked them up on Armory..

They eventually said ” Sorry about before…”   but what is with people trying to guilt other people out of loot.  It was a spellcaster PVP Cloak with spirit on it in a Pug run, rolled on by a Shadow Priest who was healing the run 14k Silverwing Rep off Justicar,  with over 50k Honor kills.   Could I have gotten any more qualified to roll on it.

    People are weird in Vault. Which is one of the reasons I stopped running it. I’ve gone back for Toravon (for the Achievement as much as anything else), but I don’t really find Vault worth the hassle.

    Your screenshots should be in C:\Program Files (x86)\World of Warcraft\Screenshots if you got a standard Windows 7, 64 bit installation.

    was on my pally healing the fire boss and a spell power cloak drops the loot master gave it to a hunter because he rolled higher then me. I was pissed refused to heal for the next boss till the raid leader told me why the hell they did that turned out the hunter was the loot masters wife and she liked how the cloak looked. I left that raid

    Had similar case back in the days where Onyxia was top loot pinata (no ICC yet), I was a Paladin tank with Red Sword of Courage aiming for the Quel’Serrar as an upgrade.

    I made the raid advertising explicitly I want a Druid or DK tank on the second slot to avoid loot competition. I got a DK, he was blood spec (that’s 2H spec, dual wield is frost), he had weapon from Anub’Arak in TOC already, and I told him I’m after the sword. Okay, he said.

    The sword dropped and he claims he wants to roll on it!
    And he starts every possible, even contradiction arguments:
    “The sword is crap for tanking, it’s not an upgrade to you.”
    “Why do you want it then?”
    “It’s an RP item, for looks.”
    “So you want it for the looks while I’m actually going to tank with it?”
    “Hey maybe I have frost dual spec and another weapon in bank already waiting?!”

    I told him it’s not his “mainspec” roll (as he was Blood 2H) and he said “tank loot is tank loot” etc. etc., he was bouncing from the wall “we’re both tanks, we will use it for tanking” to “this isn’t a tanking weapon, it shouldn’t be under MS > OS roll everyone should have dibs on it”.

    The raid was getting impatient, especially the guy who wanted to skin Onyxia, so finally I took the sword and tanked with it until ICC patch launched, when I exchanged it for the POS sword.

    Actually the Anub tanking sword dropped for me much later than I got POS sword, while the Onyxia incident was slightly after the raid shipped. So the sword served me well and long, I don’t regret the decision.

    People might argue Onyxia weapons had weird and useless stats and procs, but still higher level weapon = better threat, and it had a nice chunk of stamina as well.

    P.S. VOA cloaks are srs business when they’re level 245 and you can buy 264 ones for honor, and I bet hardcore pvpers have those already.

    Hm. The real question is were you the only one capable of needing on it? Or in direct need-competition with them on it?

    Or did they just want the abyss? o_O

    As long as 2 people that wanted it both were capable of rolling need on it (since I don’t see loot master set) and were allowed to roll need on it, yeah I don’t see the point of the griefing. I follow it with a quick eye-roll and /ignore click.

    Happens to me atleast once a week when I pug a raid. As soon as I enter; some guy with the same class/spec as mine whispers me asking if I need anything from the raid. When I say yes, they sometimes leave the group without saying anything and it even happened a few times they nerdrage at the raidleader for ”too many huntarzz” when it’s just me and him in 25 man raid >_<
