I've been where Servetus was, too, and there's nothing you can do but accept your fate maturely and move on.One night last year, I was added as rogue DPS to a regular group that was doing ULD10 hardmodes. We were on the last phase of the Thorim fight when things went sideways -- our main healer went down and the other healer was nowhere near as good, so the death spiral began. Thorim had about 15% health when we lost the MT, and maybe 10% left when we lost the OT, our remaining heals, and some cloth DPS. With just a few DPS left standing, the raid leader called for a wipe on Vent, but the other rogue in the group began evasion tanking and somehow he managed to survive long enough for us to DPS Thorim down.Afterward, the Mjolnir Runestone dropped and the raid leader (who was also master looter) let the DPS/roll on it. I won the roll and was ecstatic -- but after reviewing recount and seeing that my DPS was a measly 3.3K and the other rogue was well over 5K, the RL said publicly that he felt the Runestone should go to the other rogue based on his performance, and would I agree to that? I didn't even really have to think about it... I acceded to the request because it was the right thing to do. We'd have wiped without him; he earned it. And the RL handled it well: no one felt ill-used, and everyone got to see the decision happen publicly. Sure, I regretted the loss of the trinket, but I'd rather get asked back to a regular group than be known as a selfish player. Thorim isn't going anywhere. :)
