I follow a selfless attitude when I can. Usually there's a quest chain for the instance with better loot than most of the drops, and it really helps to research this ahead of time so you'll know you have no need of that item.I also make a point of calling items for other people when they drop. I'm on my paladin and a bonus healing cloth robe drops, I'll spam chat real fast with something like "that goes to the priest" - which puts serious intimidation against the mage rolling need, especially if 'party leader' is under my name at the time.I will almost always spam chat before needing something. "Gonna need this, ok?" - though you're on a timer, so if people are slow in responding my hand gets forced. Mostly it puts others on notice to make sure they need as well if they actually do need it.I don't tolerate needing on anything in an instance but 1) a BoP that you will wear (then or as soon as you level to it, but only as soon as level to if no-one else can wear it) or 2) a BoE that you will wear right then and there.Otherwise:Pass on all BoP's unless you can disenchant them. D/E's should greed, so that anyone who needs is above them in priority. But ideally, that shouldn't happen as everyone should have passed, and then the D/E gone and picked it up.Greed on all BoE's unless you're putting it on right then.It is -NEVER- ok to need to send it to your alt, and doing this get you kicked or me leaving.As for raids, we practice in my guild a master looter method. The master looter hands it out to whoever can use it, and if there are more than one they roll over it, unless it is a major upgrade for someone and not much of an upgrade for others. Everything else the master looter D/E's, and the shards for that go into the raider tab of the guild bank.Having a master looter has also really helped in that it causes us to stop and talk after every blue or purple drop - and thus become aware of who needs what for the guild as a whole to be better geared up.
