Warrior: Could you help me out with something?
Me: Sure, what do you need?
Warrior: If Varo'then's Brooch drops at the end, would you roll on it for me?
Me: Um ...
I'd been off in my own little world watching health bars and thinking about next week's Shifting Perspectives column and hadn't paid any attention to the group's composition. It turns out the DPSers were a mage, a hunter, and -- oh, there we go -- a frost death knight. So in the event that the strength trinket dropped, the warrior tank wanted me to roll on it and, if I won, give it to him over the DK. He probably asked the mage and the priest to do the same thing, but the group was quiet in party chat, so I have no way of knowing.
We had a small and, to his credit, civil conversation over it, and there are a few issues here on which I'd like to get readers' opinions.
