IMO, the biggest thing to be aware of in an instance is what items you should/shouldn't be rolling on. I once made the mistake on my warlock of rolling on a sword in SFK (a couple years ago when I was first starting out) and was shortly thereafter yelled at by a rogue for it. My opinion was that if I was OOM and in a position of using my sword to kill something, then I would need all the help that the +Strength could give me. While leveling my Mage (much more recently) I had to explain to a priest that the agility/strength cloak she rolled Need on wasn't for her. "but it's cloth" was her response after the warrior jumped down her throat.Know the stats your class uses before rolling Need on everything. I've found that, more than anything else, is what gets people bootedfrom groups. Also, never Need on loot just so you can disenchant it. I just about tore a rogues head off one time when he ninjad some cloth spell power bracers from me to D/E them.

Also, to my horror, I think that the sword I rolled on and instantly equipped was Shadowfang. I can't remember the exact stats on the weapon. I said +strength above but all Im sure of is that it was definitely a melée weapon and it was from a trash drop, not a boss. Had I known that I could have sold that thing for 3-5k gold instead of equipping it like a nub . . . .
