This is a split board - You can return to the Split List for other boards.

So are you not allowed to roll on gear for your other specs?

Is this like a thing?

Because this guy got super ticked at me because I rolled on an Agility ring with my Shaman because I intend to go Enhancement once I gather enough gear for all of my slots (At the moment I only have INT gear.)

At the time I was healing.

I would say if the MS person in your group doesn't need it then lol@ them objecting. What do they care for the extra shard they missed a 20% chance on getting?

Talk about it at the start of the instance and see who all is okay with it. Very rarely will you get a supreme dick who'll get very defensive of his entitled 463ilvl blues. Chances are if you're good and humble about it people will be nice enough to consider you, from my experience with dungeoneering to gear up your off-spec.

Well, yeah. The guy just started cussing me out. I wouldn't have given it to him if he had asked for it.

But if he did need it you can still trade in instance. Would have given it to him if he had asked nicely.


Also, this wasn't even endgame instancing, this is leveling.

Why would they be douchebags about it and not wanting him to roll for something they can't use or don't need? Being nice is good. Being extra nice is stupid and provokes people to tell you off on a situation they would usually consent to.

When a drop happen just inspect quickly the people that can use it. If it's not an upgrade to any of them feel free to take it.

Roll need on every piece of gear that you want. You can trade pieces that you win to people who rolled for their main spec versus your off spec if you feel like being a nice guy, but don't roll greed and risk the item getting sharded over your greed roll. I suppose you could ask if its okay to roll for an offspec before actually rolling, but it is far easier and faster to ask forgiveness than permission.

Usually its polite to ask before rolling OS. Should be a loading screen tip.

I see people ask if it's okay if they roll need for offspec all the time when a item drops and if no one actually needs it no one ever objects, but you should always make sure no one needs it first. And since it is low level that is even less reason for you to need on it since you are planning on going enhancement sometime in the future since most likely by the time you do go enhancement it will already be way out leveled. Plus the people who use low level as an excuse don't think about the fact that low level is where people learn what's appropriate behavior.

Well, in my case it's an immediate future thing... I just need the gear to switch.
