I am in a casual raiding guild that has Naxx 10 and 25 on farm. One thing that has been bothering me alot lately is not so much caarrying undergeared people through, its when those last couple of upgrades that I need drop and one of those undergeared people get it instead of me.Now I have no issues giving them huge upgrades but they can't seem to live through boss fights. Seriously, Heigan is NOT hard, why do you keep dying? And sometimes they take shit that is a good upgrade for me while they are getting a very minor upgrade. If I am bidding on something I will usually ask those that are bidding against me what they have, if it is a huge upgrade for them I stop bidding.I guess what I am saying is that for me the biggest thing is a little consideration when running with guildies. I do have some guild mates on ignore and refuse to run with some unless in raid. Is it too much to ask for a little give and take from my guild mates? Or am I being selfish?

I know how frustrating that can be. My guild is big enough that we had three sets of ten mans being run all at the same time (casual family raiding guild for the late start win!) and we run on a points system where you can bid need or greed, and the person who's been building up the most points gets it. Slightly frustrating to see a token drop and know my Guild Leader is going to get it, by did of his having points from all the way back to Kara (when I never raided till Wrath). But at the same time, I know that I'm steadily piling up the points and the next time it drops, I could have a chance at it. I guess in your case there's some patience needed. And if you're healing, let them die.

This sounds like a short comming of your loot distribution system. Obviously you have one, since you bid on items. Keep in mind that loot distribution is also supposed to reward people for attending, not just to gear people up. Are you being selfish? Maybe. But you might want to check into how loot distribution is done and discuss it with others in your guild.
