I would think that Disenchant/Greed would work on the same /roll.And if you selected Greed and won, you get the item in one piece.And if you selected Disenchant and won, you would get the disenchant mats.This would allow a bit more of "bring the player, not the profession", and would be really useful for 5 man groups. There's usually a better chance of a chanter being present in a 10man or 25man raid.

It took how many posts to get a sane reply.Sad :(

@ Daniel - How was that a sane reply? That loot option is just there so the group, probably a PuG, doesn't have to ask you why you are greeding everything. You'll still need an enchanter to get shards. Blizz will not add an option to the loot window so you can just magically get shards in your bags.

Sane, I'm not sure. Uninformed, for sure. Like every other commenton these labels.However, I'm inclined to think that Blizzard would add the option ofautomatically disenchanting the item, rather than relying on therebeing an enchanter in the group.What would happen if there is no enchanter in the group? perhapsthey hide the DE option. Then does one of the chanters automaticallyget the item so they can DE it and give the mats to the person who wonthe roll? Sounds like opening the door to enable items to be ninja'd,even more than it is already.The only thing that doesnt rest easy with me for my comment is theBoP trade timer. If the item gets DE'd immediately, and it wasmistake, then you loose the ability to trade that item. Its probablystatus quo, but I'm Blizzard will post something in the PTR notes indue course, if the feature should even see the light of day.

@ Colerejuste - I would think if there is no enchanter in the group the option would just not show up. Originally I thought the disenchant option would only be visible to enchanters, then they would have the choice to hit that option & then everyone would be able to roll on shards afterward. But now, I'm thinking everyone will see the disenchant option IF there is an enchanter in the group, whoever wins the disenchant roll, that item will not appear in anyone's bag, but just show up in the winner's bag as shards.That idea only works if there is an enchanter in the group. I still stand by my idea that it's just not a "I want enchanting mats" button.

@jorge_avI like that idea too. Its an option if there is a chanter in the group.I still think that the Greed and Disenchant option will be sorted in the same roll.However, for practical purposes, I'm not sure if the heroic 5mans I run in will do it that way. At the end of the run, there's usually a shard for everyone, plus an abyssal for the highest roller. The Greed/DE option might end up with someone missing out, if no one actually needs any of the loot.I was going to say "we're all adults, we'll sort it out", but then realised "we'll sort it out" will have to suffice.

I don't really like the idea that this will show up automatically if there is an enchanter in the group. That basically forces the enchanter to DE the item for the group. I think it should be the enchanter's choice whether they want to offer their services or not.
