We occasionally (but not often) see a PUG use their 'need' roll on something off Marrowgar and suddenly fake a DC. (It's not necessarily theft, just selfishness - "Well I got mine, why should I waste my night helping them get theirs? That's the luck of the draw" etc.) Right now, when this happens, their reputation can follow them. If raids are pulling people from several servers, there's even more erosion of accountability, and the frequency of this type of behavior will increase exponentially.

While I agree with you, in general. A way to fix the 'need/greed' issue is to get rid of need entirely. If it is a class specific item, only that class roles on it, if it is BoE, everybody roles for it. If you can use it, you get a shot at it.It is a PUG after all, not a guild, "let's gear the tank and healers first" raid.But it should be RANDOM raids only [like random dungeons] and 10 man only. And like the Random Dungeon, it should not lock you out. [and get a DPS/HPS buff, just sayin']Granted this will lead to some AMAZING flameouts [I just ran a random dungeon with a hunter whose entire DPS output was volley. EVEN ON THE BOSS]. Lots of drama. And, in general, a fair amount of Asshatry. So better to just let it pass.

No need to fake a DC anymore theres a macro that actually dc's you.

@CandinaThe random heroic finder DOES lock you out. The reason people don't notice this is that you can run as many randoms as you like, and it ignores any lockouts you get. But if you just did your daily random and got H UP, try queuing for H UP specifically after. You can't. You're locked.On a similar note, the dungeon finder seems to ignore most of the rules of running dungeons. You just don't notice until you wanna do something else. Had a guildy farming direbrew before he realised he couldn't get a mount to drop from him. 20 runs later, it's raid time.. "You have entered too many instances recently".
