Just got Maw of the Dragonlord a couple of minutes ago off a priest who already had it. He just gave it to me. It 's like a Pinata in there and I knew going into it. Leave it alone - if I want the gear I will do the real raid other than that the only thing I will count on is the easy valor.

I won the mace early on.. but I rolled need on one run a couple of weeks ago. There was this other resto druid, who was just insulting the dps and healers. He said he was the best and we'd all die without him. I didn't pay him much attention, other then to make a mental note to ignore him after the fight.So, we've downed Yersa's, Nozdormu's, and Alexstraza's platform down. It's not been an easy fight.. any healers can attest that if you're in a group where the dps doesn't kill the fragment right away or you have a weak healer.. it makes the fight all that much more difficult to heal. We had both. So, I've popped Tranquility and my mana is almost gone with innervate still on cooldown when the idiot resto druid whispers me like: :B I've been afk most of the fight. lol! and then proceeds to tell me that he and I are the only good healers there. I was so angry I was just beside myself. In my personal opinion he was a really shitty healer. You are not a good healer, no matter your HPS, if you're going afk during the fight and therefore making the fight more difficult for the other healers. Especially since I was busting my ass to heal a battle where I don't even need anything that drops.I rolled on that mace for the sheer fact that I didn't want him to win it. It would be going to waste in his hands.Neither of us won it, I believe a shaman did. But I'm happy to know it didn't end up in his hands.

@ xvkarbearI feel your pain. Over the years I've noticed one reliable trend in World of Warcraft - the person putting down other players is usually not very good. I'm sorry, but there's NO WAY you can type in full sentences and actually participate to the best of your ability. If you're not doing your best, you have no right to criticize other players who may be trying to do their best.Nowhere is this more evident than in battlegrounds. Each time I see *that guy* who is calling the team noobs, calling people losers, complaining that their faction sucks, complaining that the healers aren't keeping them alive, complaining about just about anything, you can almost guarantee that when you check the scorebooard at the end, that is the peron who will have the lowest honor score, the lowest healing done, the lowest damage done, the lowest objectives completed and the lowest honor kills.LFR is no different. What a joke - that guy telling you he's one of the best healers there while he stands there and does nothing.
I think people just need to realize like the OP that RF isn't there for loot. It's there for people who can't do normal raids due to time constraints or lack of confidence (yes, all you need to raid with a raid group is confidence in yourself that you do well).If you don't want to to deal with the people in LFR, don't go in there. It sucks if you're looking for gear, but you don't have to do LFR to get into 10-man DS.

I just realized - you know what this is? It's all the 'l33t professional raiders' come to grief the rest of us. How many times have you heard a complaint from a l33t that the 'casuals' get too much or that the game's gone soft. ONLY the hard-core raiders deserve these rewards, and now look - more casual players are getting them. We don't deserve them, so the abuse of the 'need' button; might just drive a fair bit of them off the deep end, which might cause more than a few 'needless needs'. Something to think about.

@xvkarbearWhile attempting to keep loot from a jerk might seem noble, it still means you're trying to put yourself in the position of loot master and that is not your role. The current loot system means all people - even obnoxious jerks who go afk - are entitled to roll on loot and win it. Either you support the fairness an equal opportunity of everyone rolling and winning, or you don't and you just roll on gear for your own ends - whether they be to prevent someone else from winning an item or to trade it to someone else etc.

Just create a database for every character that lists everything they've ever won. If you've already won a unique item, you can't roll on it again. If you're a rogue, fury warrior, etc. and you've already won two of that weapon, then you can't roll on it again.Simple.
