Here's another comment recommending Suicide Kings for your situation.One thing I would add to the above commenters' suggestions: to avoid your raid group's tendency to let gear get sharded to avoid using their roll, try Double Suicide Kings.It works the exact same way as Suicide Kings, but everyone is on the list twice, so that if it's a minor upgrade for them, they will bid their low position, and if it's a major upgrade they'd be willing to give up their higher position.When I first implemented SK, we had a lot of people refusing to bid for the lesser upgrades. Haven't had any problems with Double SK though.------------------For the initial roll onto Double SK, just reverse the list and add it to the bottom (with only three raiders for example's sake):1: Highest roller2: Second highest roller3: Lowest roller4: Lowest toller5: Second Highest roller6: Highest roller.

Suicide Kings has one MAJOR advantage; it's extremely easy to administrate. It has some other characteristics that you may perceive as advantageous or disadvantageous depending on your raid group and it's goals. SK does not discriminate between players with high attendance and those with low attendance. Furthermore, players near the bottom of an SK list actually have more leverage over the majority of loot, since the same item will cost them relatively less than the players at the top of the SK list. The Double SK list that Didax is proposing would seem to minimize that last characteristic while keeping the system easy to administrate.Before choosing a loot system, I'd encourage folks to read up on the subject and pick based on their groups needs and goals. ALL loot systems have advantages & disadvantages. There's some good general info on wowwiki & wikipedia:http://www.wowwiki.com/Loot_systemhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loot_System
