Off-Nights and Loot Drama

by tartdarling

So, since 25 man Maly seems to be the bane of existance right now (8%?! Come ON!) we decided to switch our raid rotation up last night to give us more time to work on him. And my that seemed to be a mistake. Fights that we normally breezed through wiped us (as did trash pulls a couple times) and it was just not our best showing all around. I’ll admit that the first wipe on Razuvious was totally my fault. My computer decided to have issues at that moment and trying to MC to do that fight on 1fps is tough indeed. But we managed to get it thanks to Rippa stepping up and actually tanking Raz himself for the last 100k HP. In all fairness we had a couple people that had never been in Naxx in there with us, but it just seemed like everyone was having an off night. We did manage to pick it up at the end and get the Heroic: Arachnophobia down.

But we did have one kind of major moment in guild. I guess major for me more than anyone else. I am still currently using War Mace of Unrequited Love on Tart. Well Gluth dropped This Bad Boy. And low and behold I roll a 75. And begin to dance in glee, as the only other priest in raid has the KT Mace and is holy (I know, Holy needs crit too, but still.). And he rolls a 76. And GM passes it to him. I about die. Not wanting to make a stink in raid chat (though I have seen this particular priest loot whore other items in raid before.) I quietly whisper our GM and tell him “Hey. Priesty has the KT Mace that he won last week, he shouldn’t have been allowed to need roll on that” GM agrees (by way of whispering FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK to me) and whispers The Other Priest to submit a ticket and have the item sent to me, as it is a massive upgrade for me, and a downgrade/offspec for him. I get a whisper later from T.O.P. saying ‘hey, I didn’t realize you NEEDED the weapon. why did you get me in trouble?!’ And that is when I almost lost it on him. my intent by any means was not to get The Other Priest in trouble, but to let the GM know that he may need to look out for stuff like that. Also, then what is the purpose of NEED rolls over greed rolls, if people who are greeding are going to roll for needs anyway? I have passed many an upgrade of mine to someone for whom it is a much larger upgrade. I could never imagine taking a downgrade for me from someone who is upgrading to it.

So my question is: How does everyone else deal with Loot Issues and/or Do you have Loot Issues?
