enchanters don't have to give up their shard for a /roll if they don't want to... I think it's customary to just ask ahead of time if DE's are getting rolled on or not. It's not default behavior to assume that if an enchanter is in the group, he/she owes the group DE service.

On my server (Kargath) it is customary for enchanters to roll on shards. Every PUG I've been in has had that rule, not stated, but understood.

I figure that if the enchanter isn't going to offer to d/e for the group, then they need to win the greed roll to get their shard. For a useless item, the shard will generally be worth more (often much more) than the vendor value, but the vendor value isn't insignificant. If the enchanter doesn't want to d/e for the group, they shouldn't assume that they automatically get priority for the item where vendoring it might help defray the repair costs for another party member.

Perhaps not at lower levels; however, you'll find at 70 that the only time you won't roll on de'd boss loot is when there isn't actually an enchanter in the party.But I guess when you're levelling you don't need the shards as much as you do at 70. ^^

While leveling my current alt, I made the offer to DE every item that no one wanted from a boss. In general, everyone just told me to take it and I couldn't even garner enough interest to take the shard even when I offered to enchant their gear with it. The rules on disenchanting usually don't come into play until you reach higher levels; failure to point out that someone can disenchant or rolling for those when you're 70 will result in some very cranky players.In general, discussion is always welcome. Some people in groups want shards; some people want the loot to sell; and some people - as in my case - just don't care and want to get through the hassle of a group as soon as possible!
