In a game where your placement in a group/raid depends (let's just say 70% and 30% skill) upon the loot you work hard for and strive to get how can you expect players to not be excited about trying to get something from an instance. I agree that spending your time claming something before it drops, if not stated before joining a party beforehand, is improper etiquite as well as going to be shot down in any party I'm leader of.The reason I say stating before joining a party is better is because you may have something better to do or something you have already got planned and YOU were ASKED to join the group by another person trying to PUG you. In that circumstance, requiring an item to be solely yours may be the only reason to make the instance run worthwhile to you and if you are looking to have to battle it out with 2-3 other people, it's not worth your time, especially if they aren't your guildies/friends. It's not being selfish, just for a casual player you only have limited time to spend in game so you have to make the best of the time you have so you do get invited as a viable option for that raid you are wanting so badly to see.To any GM who states that he's going to DE an item in front of someone who plainly needs it is downright rude and not fit for the position. It does take a special person to hold a group of players from different backgrounds and different interests towards the same goal, especially if that group is older, ie more set in their ways and not accustomed to taking direction from someone.
