Allowed to roll?I've seen this issue come up before, and for some reason it rarely seems to end well. I've seen lootmasters ask all of the appropriate class to link their current PVP piece that would be replaced; but which way do you go from there? Is it more "correct" to give the item to the person for whom it is a bigger upgrade, or the person whose gear shows that they PVP a lot more? Same goes for if you ask how many honorable kills, or link achievements, etc.My own take is that whatever criteria is customary on your server for determining a player's "right to roll" under normal raiding conditions should be used, and not be further complicated by investigation into PVP "worthiness" or anything similar. It just prevents a lot of headaches.Should have passed?Always up to the winner. "Should" is a bad word here; kindness is always appreciated but never to be expected or mandatory. No one should get a bad rap for not passing something if they won the roll, provided it was appropriate for them to roll on the item.Should have not asked?Nothing wrong with asking; the worst they can do is say no, right? But I would have offered something for them. Couple hundred gold, some gems/crafting mats, etc. just to make it worth his while. It's his item; trade him something he'll get reasonable value from.On the other hand I've known of individuals who, in seemingly every single raid, pester someone to whom they lost a roll, under the Anything Goes premise - "if I can convince him to hand them over, through begging, coercion, bribery, intimidation, or anything else- then I win". Nobody likes that guy. Don't be that guy. :)
