By definition, wouldn't World Drop Epics drop, well, anywhere within the appropriate level range? It's DS trash-drops that are the real question.

I had a world BoE epic drop off of trash in my LFR last week - 359 agi ring: "Gilnean Ring of Ruination" Of course a hunter with two 378 rings rolled need and won it..... yeah. Whole raid was screamin' at him, ah well at least it bound to him.

It's BoE, not BoP, what do you mean "ah well at least it bound to him"?

If you roll Need on a BoE it become Soulbound, you have to roll Green to keep it BoE

They made that change a patch or 2 ago. If you need on something that is BoE, it is supposed to make it soulbound to that toon.

I'm EXTREMELY happy that this went into effect.It was this patch I believe that it started too, cause I think that's where the bug came from where pretty much anything in your inventory became soulbound. (I remember a commenter from here mentioned how they bought an expensive item off the ah for their main, and it became instantly soulbound on their alt, or something like that)

"It's BoE, not BoP, what do you mean "ah well at least it bound to him"?"Blizzard REALLY needs to advertise the system in-game more. So many people still don't seem to realise Needing a BoE item under default loot rules binds it to the character who wins it. I STILL see people in dungeons who 'ninja loot' an item. Most recently, the tank rolled Need on a tanking BoE and dropped the dungeon before we even got to the first boss. He can't sell it on the AH, if he actually needed it everyone would have been fine with him using it. It's just annoying having people leave to everyone's loss, when they are the only people who deserve the annoyance.But yeah. Hopefully Blizzard adds a different loot window to BoE items. "Rolling Need on this item will bind it to your character" and Greed can stay BoE.
