I probably would have tried it outdoors alone instead of in raid with other people; as to what I would've done after discovering what it does, I honestly have no clue. On one hand, it's clear something like this should never end up in players' hands, on the other it's like finding a wallet on the sidewalk with lots of money in it. Do you keep it or return it to the authorities? While there are people who are genuinely honest, many would simply weight the risk of getting caught and that determines the course of action. Because this is a game though, "getting caught" has little weight with regards to RL consequences (getting banned, while it sucks, isn't nearly as bad as going to prison for instance), so it's not surprising that this guy didn't feel the need to open a ticket with Blizzard to have the item removed.Since it's entirely Blizzard's fault for giving that item to a player, through the actions of one of their GMs, banning the guy simply is so wrong on so many levels. Delete the loot their got from raids without killing the bosses properly, fine, but banning him and suspending the guild's other raiders is just plain wrong.
