The article really hasn't sold me on its hate for roll-based looting systems. Actually, hold that -- I do hate what I'm reading about karma and shroud looting! Sounds complex and unnecessary.Our rules work fine: 1 main spec roll per raid, then subsequent main spec rolls are trumped by other main spec rolls from players who haven't one anything. Same thing transposed for offspec rolls, only OS rolls are always trumped by any main spec rolls. 1 tier roll. Boom. Presto! Nae Problemo. If loot goes to someone we have had to pug in because someone couldn't make it, then that's our guild's fault, not the pugger. Why should she be penalized for someone else's absence? Also, groups may minimize the risk involved in rolling for pieces by paying attention to raid composition. There is only 1 holy paladin in out raid, hence I tend to get every single plate item that has int on it. You know -- spread it out and you won't have problems, that's all. And yeah, the 'don't be a dick' principle is a given.
