the tank trinket from the second boss fight in mogu palace. tank trinket drops, the healer druid rolls need, wins it, immediately drops group. tank is really bummed out. apparently ran palace like 12 times that day trying to get the trinket.

we soldier on with our new druid healer, down weaponmaster and the AGI polearm drops. tank is like "yay at least i can get something".

druid healer rolls need, immediately drops.

tank said "i quit this game" and dropped.

i don't even blame him. we've all been ninja'd before but twice in one run by the same type of healer is just disheartening. i was laughing at the dude's luck but felt bad too.

this is literally why if i want an item drop in an instance, i will leave the group if anyone else in the group can use the item or even roll need on it.

In WotLK I was gearing up a Paladin as tank/healer. Halls of Reflection dropped the best non-raid tanking shield available. Ran that place a good 20-30 times, saw it drop twice, and both times lost rolls to Warriors in DPS gear (I tanked it, partly to skip queues, and partly because I've got the mentality that rolling on something in the spec you're in should really give you a higher priority that off-specs). After that, any time there was a Warrior or Paladin in the group, I'd drop and requeue. Couldn't bear the thought of having to run about 20 times before getting the stupid shield ninja'd again. I'd even explain in party chat so people wouldn't think I was too much of an arse.

All this rage for normal 5 man loot?
Because otherwise how can you run MGP hc 12 times in a single day?

Something just doesn't click.

Yeah, especially as a tank and I've had DPS roll against me and win countless times over the years. Requeue for that dungeon specifically until you get a group who's at the boss you need, drop after downing and repeat as needed. Don't run the entire thing over and over if you're after something specific. I don't get why the guy would hang around; it's not like he wouldn't be immediately replaced if he left so there's no guilt for doing so. I think it's far more of a pain when tanks and healers swipe stuff from DPS as their queues are substantially longer.

I understand the need for conformity. Without a concise set of rules to follow, we would probably all have to resort to common sense.

I'm thankful to say that since starting the game during BC, acrossed multiple characters, not once have I been ninja'd.

I got ninja'd few times, but more often then not I just say I need it for main spec and they give it to me.

Saw a Hunter roll need on both STR trinkets that Archbishop Benedictus dropped and won both at the same time.
