Too many people are loot crazy. Items will always drop again unless its super ultra rare and then I can understand. My only request (if even voicing my opinion on group composition) is that we take a nice person. Hard to know this sometimes before inviting, but that's about my only criteria (aside from the obvious ones). Maybe they'll win the roll that dungeon run, but next time you form a group invite that guy/girl along. You'll know they already have the drop, and you'll have less competition and probably someone who is happy to help you out.I know the saying you catch more flies with honey is a bit cliché, but in the case of dungeons runs the sweeter you act in them the more likely you are to get invited back. Sure you may lose an item today, but you'll be setting yourself up for future runs with people who want to invite you to groups. When people see you as part of their team they'll want you to get the upgrades you need and look out for your interests. If you can't do the above well then you sure can go around being picky, but just remember it may end up taking you longer in the end then just being a good sport about it.

This ^^^I've spent my entire time in WoW as a "nice" player... and a Subtlety Rogue. One of them doesn't get me invited into groups very often, but since the recent changes, my spec hasn't mattered that much. HAT certainly has it's place in a group.Anyway, I think being a decent player over being a drama queen goes a very long way. More related to the article, however, as one who was often passed by for groups, I can understand the other DPS wanting to limit the potential adversaries when it comes to specific loot. Like most other posters, though, sometimes enough is enough and you have to take the player that's willing to run in your group.

After you've been around a while, you realize that all that loot will drop again. I've been running heroic PUGs since I hit 80, must have run a dozen of them. So far only one upgrade for me (huge upgrade though). Went into Naxx10 with my guild, got the 2 piece T7 set. Now that's lucky. My feeling is that pretty much all loot has equivalents somewhere else. All the random drops from heroics have equivalents in naxx10, or BOE crafted, or rep items. So...point being, go for the fun, not the loot. I think the funnest PUGs is when we wipe a bunch of times figuring out the strat, then nail the boss finally. The loot is secondary (especially so since i don't expect anything good to drop). One pug we did was an hour before reset, we wiped a bunch of times on the second boss, only to see a group member bail. We invite another, got the boss down the next time, and just blitzed through the dungeon. We downed the last boss with 10 minutes on the timer. That was exciting!
