Jan 26th 2012 1:02PM By that time, though, they already have the right to roll on the loot, and it takes the 3 minutes for the automatic pass (assuming they don't come back in time to roll anyway). Plus, like the run I had last night, people often pull before you can even vote kick anyone since there are so many restrictions on vote kicking - including while in combat, shortly after combat, while rolls are going on, etc.
A few weeks ago, I lost my healing trinket to a healer who spent 90% of fight DCed and only cast a single heal the whole fight. It's frustrating, and I don't think people who don't participate should have the ability to roll for gear on those fights.
Jan 26th 2012 11:54AM Q for the Q:
I've been in some LFR groups where people are literally AFK the whole fight, on follow, or just purposely die in the first few seconds of the fight. Do you ever think Blizz would put in some sort of minimum (I'm even okay with a very low minimum) amount of damage done (not dps) or heals that people need to do in order to be eligible for loot?
Jan 26th 2012 10:08AM I definitely believe that's what was going on. I've had it happen to a lesser extent before, but that was the worst one.
I've also had it happen, typically with a tank, where they want to get vote kicked so they don't have to wait for a debuff for leaving a dungeon they don't like.
Jan 26th 2012 9:10AM On my pally tank, I got in a heroic Halls of Origination, which I hate anyway, because you always end up fighting about skipping the extra bosses or not, but I decided I'd go ahead and do it. 3 of the group members are in a guild, and then there's me, and a pug hunter. The healer starts off the run saying, "Hunter, you're healing, right?" I give a lol, thinking he's joking, ask if they're ready, and pull the first group. The healer starts dpsing, doesn't toss out a single heal, and they don't target my target, so everyone's dying off. I use LoH, thinking the healer will, ya know, heal. Nope. Everyone else dies, I run out, and I ask the healer why he didn't heal. He says that the Hunter was supposed to be healing. While I'm half-heartedly arguing with him, one of his dps friends pulls the mobs again, and again we die. They proceed to try to vote kick the Hunter "because he's not healing". *sigh*
Dec 27th 2011 1:43PM To expand a bit on question #2, I've noticed that if i click the dungeon finder icon a multiple times, literally a second apart, it will show the goodie bag once and then not again, then show it next time - often times for both healer and tank bags. Is this intentional? Does the DF really check every second to see if there's a need to provide incentive to tanks and healers? Or is that a bug too?

Oct 26th 2011 9:39PM Since a couple weeks after they nerfed the FL drops, the patterns have all but vanished from my server - they can't even be found on the AH for astronomical prices anymore. Now crafters are charging crazy amounts - I suppose because they can. Is this happening on all the servers?
