LFD sends me into a realm of pissed off at least a several times a week. Seeing the http://www.wowhead.com/item=77191 aka Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps, is such a rarity in itself to drop, it hardly ever goes to a pure dps class. Just this last week myself, a fury warrior, 2 other arms warriors were the only pure melee dps that could use the weapon, a RESTO paladin won the item then left, not only was he RESTO, he was bad at it, and stayed either dc'd, dead or afk throughout several encounters. Something needs to be addressed or changed! Clearly the loot system is torched.

A Resto pally, he must have abandoned the light and gone to nature. Kidding aside, I feel your pain when things like this happen. It sucks.

Paladins have a resto tree noe too?
So how did a holy paladin get a role bonus on Gurth? Or are you just full of crap?

Now, a resto tree now... I suck at life...

This could only happen if the [Holy] Paladin was in a DPS slot. If they were a healer, then either this was a bug or you got your facts wrong.

Well that was his problem. Everyone knows Resto Paladins suck. He should have specced Shadow or Balance.

While I don't agree with what that pally did, few things.First its HOLY not resto. Resto is for those tree hugging hippies and shammies :PSecond, your definition of "pure melee dps" is horribly off, since ret pallys, warriors, and dks are hybrids. (Warriors are tanks as well, so not "pure")Third, if you notice they were afk an entire fight, vote to kick them, and let the raid know. I've been in several lfrs now where we have booted people who were afk for several fights, or were doing so poorly they should not have been in there at all (we had a blood dk tank with holy pally gear -_-). I've also been in other groups where yes, the afker ended up winning stuff. It sucks, do what you can to prevent it.

He must have been a REsTo paladin.

Do you mean a HOLY paladin? 'cuz I've never heard of a RESTO paladin. In addition, how do you know he didn't need it for a DPS spec? I'll acknowledge that he should've asked if he could 'Need' on off-spec items.In addition, how do you know he/she wasn't having issues staying connected? My sisters and I have that issue sometimes.

Actually, this can and does happen regularly without the healer being in a dps slot. I've noticed that if you queue for multiple roles (say tank and dps) that you get the role bonus on both sets of gear regardless of which spec you're actually fulfilling. I honestly don't need any of the gear since I'm never going to see a regular 10m Dragon Soul raid, so I only roll need on the stuff I have.And by all means, if some guy was AFK, dead, or underperforming and you didn't kick him, then that blame partly falls on you as well. Ignoring the bad folks just encourages them to do it again.

Only time I saw that drop, a hunter needed and won it...good times

Broken-toes, I take it that was before the class restrictions were implemented? Sucks. :(

Funny how he was AFK/Disconnected during the fights, but when it came time to roll on gear, he was completely there. Sounds like a freeloader. Probably should've kicked him earlier, but hindsight is 20/20 yeah?
