Hmm I foresee this happening a lot then:Guildy A rolls - 5Pug rolls - 55Guildy B (who wasn't going to roll until he saw Guildy A lose) rolls - 95Master Looter gives Guildy B the lootGuild B secretly gives Guildy A the loot he should have lost.Pug loses hardcore.
I anticipate there'll be a raid alert when the trade happens.

Guildy B could just as easily roll a 50, and still lose. And as Michael says, I would assume trades will continue to be announced. If this becomes the new trend, at least the Guildwatch column will get more fodder.

This came up a few months ago when a couple of friends leveraged a roll to get an item. It better be a raid-wide announcement.

They most definitely need to email everyone who was in the lockout whenever this happens to prevent exactly that abuse.

But here's what happens now:Guildie A rolls a 5Pug rolls a 55RL & Master Looter (in the same guild with guildie A) "Oh crap! I gave it to the wrong guy! Well, we'll just open a ticket and transfer it..."And the Pug waits until the end of time waiting for the fictitious ticket to be resolved... Yeah this new system is open to its own forms of abuse. The question is whether the NEW abuses will be worse than the OLD abuses -- and I suspect they won't.

How is this different from guildy B just opening a ticket to have a GM transfer it to A?

Well if the item becomes soul bound on the first transfer then that problem goes away. Only allow one pass the parcel. Hopefully this is how it will be implemented.

rudemented2, this already happens under the current system, only it takes a ticket to do it.

@Graham RibchesterNot nearly to the scale that this change will allow for. If you were to do this on a daily basis like this change allows you do to...you would get flagged by the GM's and eventually refused since it is clear you are up to no good and causing them loads of unnecessary work.
