As the epics get easier to get (and crystals become cheaper) I find myself allowed to keep the Abysses more and more often. I typically leave HToC with 3 or 4 crystals.At the start of Wrath, leveling enchanting was tougher, groups actually Needed items, and it was uphill both ways to the instance portal, I gave myself the first Dream Shard and the group rolled off for the remaining shards and crystal.

There is never a time when unneeded items should be rolled for instead of DE'd. That is like saying sometimes skinners shouldn't be allowed to skin corpses or miners shouldn't be allowed to tap nodes while going through the instance.It is funny too because players will demand a share of the shards... when is the last time you saw a miner or skinner passing out ore or leather? All DE materials should be property of the enchanter.

@BullseyedBeing an enchanter doesn't mean you're entitled to all the loot in the instance just because it isn't needed. Others will allow you to take items to DE on the condition that they get a share, otherwise you can just roll with everyone else. I'd rather 8g from vendoring a blue than nothing.

Agreed. Miners, skinners, herbalists, and engineers should be rolling on their own crafting materials as well.

Enchanting is not like other professions in that rather than gathering it's materials from nodes or particular mob corpses, it requires destroying magic items. These items are available to anyone, unlike herbs/ore/leather which can only be gathered by certain professions. A good way to get magic items is to run instances where you can roll with everyone else for them (they drop off like every boss!). Or alternatively in place of rolling with everyone else, you might like to offer to DE everything that isn't needed so the people in your group can have enchanting materials instead of the magic items they would have otherwise had.Your profession involves destroying items of value, people aren't just going to let you take them without something in return. They couldn't have mined that saronite node anyway. Do you understand the difference?
