@jmsalsaYour example brings to mind the 'Reading is Hard' article from the other day. The argument is about gear, not random items. Something like the gem bag tends to get rolled on by everybody, unless the master looter ninjas it, which is definitely stealing.The point here is that in most raids, the ruleset for rolling involves rolling on only on things that you need, that would be an upgrade for you. If you roll on those t7 shoulders while wearing your t9.5, you are in direct violation of the rules unless you worked the situation out with the rest of the raid prior.What I don't understand is why people don't just ask these questions up front more often. I find that in most pugs on my server, generally the rule is to only roll on something you need, and usually it is restricted to one piece of regular loot, one piece of tier to try and keep distribution fair. I've gone in with undergeared friends to help and pointed out that I'd be using my 2 pieces of loot to help them since I would be rolling on nothing for myself, and I've only met resistance in one case. When that happened, I chose to not attend the raid. If I'm not going to benefit either myself or my friends, then I'm not going to spend the time; but as I said, people are almost universally understanding of this, or seem to be in the pug raids I've done at least.TL;DR: Just say what you're doing up front. People will be more understanding than most seem to think, and it's not like you have to stay in the raid if they aren't.
