"Unfortunately, two of our other healers felt they should have gotten a roll for the fragment. They are so upset about it, they are even refusing to heal in our raids now."I will freely admit that I am heavily biased in this instance, but any sympathy I had for your healers' position went out the window once I read that.I was part of a 10-man raid guild that disbanded because one of our healers decided to boycott raids for a MONTH. We already had a shortage of healers, and another healer decided to quit the game after being gone for a two-week vacation -- time we could have used to look for a full-time replacement.This was right after 3.1 dropped, so while everyone else was venturing into Ulduar and trying to down Emalon, we were dead in the water. Eventually the officers decided to call it quits to give people a chance to find a spot in another guild's raiding team.So I'm not feeling particularly charitable towards players who decide to punish an entire raid group or guild by taking their ball and going home.With that said, I urged my wife's guild to decide BEFORE 3.1 dropped what to do with the fragments for precisely this reason; that way there would be no surprises and no drama when the first one dropped. They do EP/GP in their guild, and their main healer gets the fragments but has to spend his points on them -- meaning he's going to lose out on a lot of other gear upgrades in order to have a shot at the mace.
