"Say congratulations! My final tip is my pet preference and peeve: If someone wins gear -- especially if they beat your roll to win it -- then congratulate them. It's simple good sportmanship."I did roll on the neck that dropped, even tho I am wearing one, because I am now required by my raid lead to flip specs based on if we are doing hard modes or not. I don't want to have to hold up the raid to constantly go back and forth to reforge my resto gear to boomy, and back. So I'm building a completely separate boomkin set. I went in as Boomy, and there was only one other druid in the raid (resto, different realm). At first he was kind of whiny sounding when he first asked me why I rolled on it when I have it. I whispered back that I need a whole second set of gear to flip between specs, since I don't always have time to run back, reforge, then run back to the raid...just to go between bosses.I asked him which piece he wanted (I got neck and shoulders off the same boss), and when he told me he was looking for the neck piece, I went ahead and handed it over. If he hadn't had asked me, he never would have known he could get the item from me. Granted it won't always work like that, but it never hurts to ask nicely. He even apologized for sounding whiny previously. I told him us resto druids needed to stick together.....it's rough enough as it is hehe.

You're a considerate player. I'd venture that's you in the real world too. Props. I'm the same way when I pug. In low level 5 mans, if I can't use it for my main specc or off specc, I usually just pass. I can always farm with my main if I need gold, and by passing, someone who actually needs it or the gold for vendoring/DEing it can win without me competeing. If it's a piece I can use for the specc I'm NOT running the dungeon in, then I roll greed. I only roll need if that character can actually use it in his CURRENT specc. And a lot of times, at the end of the run, if it looks like someone in the group got dissed by the RNG gods and I did well, I'll whisper offer them some or even all of what I won. Sure, I know I lose out out on loot to people who aren't as courteous; are loot ninjas; or are just plain old greedy asshats. But you know what? I don't care. Karma. Those types are the ones with an empty friends list. :)
