WoW: BHA: Offical Loot Rule Post
We have all been excellent to each other and having fun! We have reached a point where our current loot rule system needed tweaking. Fed started a post a while back and rather than bury the new rules in that post, I started another one. The officers met and here are the results. Rather than type the main loot rules again, I have lifted my post from Feds original thread.
We have decided that there will be two sets of loot rules. The first is the main guild position. The second is a modified version for end game raiding.
The Loot Rules to be followed at all times except when you are end game raiding are :
Basically our loot rules are a direct reflection of the guild rules. Play nice and be excellent to each other. To translate this to loot rules.... if it is an upgrade, no matter if it is green/blue/purple/orange /whatever color, call it as an upgrade and wait to see if anyone else calls it as an upgrade or need. I say wait because there have been occasions when an individual has passed on said item or picked greed and cannot change to a need roll. Provided noone else calls the item, roll need. Should 1 or more people also want said item, make sure everyone chooses the same roll ie... greed/need/pass. This especially important with the BOP (bind on pickup items). BOE ( bind on equip) items can easily be traded should a mistake occur.
If the item is BOE, always roll greed if you are interested in the item no matter the reason. If someone needs the item, they should speak up. If someone passes, they are not interested.
If the item is BOP, always pass unless it is an upgrade for you. If it is an upgrade, call it and follow afore mentioned procedure.
Items that noone wants will go to the person who can DE and then they will either keep the enchanting mat or the group will roll random 1-100 to determine who gets the mat. Trollslayer keeps a bank of mats for enchanting guild items. If you need assistance with an enchant, be nice
The GWJ rules are designed to get upgrades for all of us and allowing folks to roll on multiple items is fine with me.
Noone in GWJ should feel like a greedy filthy animal because we all are there for the same reason and frankly, if your guild isn't going to help you upgrade, who will?
These rules do differ from the various guild alliances or PUG rules. In those outings, you will find folks are a bit more persnikety about items. Those rules tend to be one purple/blue per run pass on all BOP and greed all BOE. Or, there will be a master looter and folks get items based on raid points. I do not like the raid point system and we will never use that in GWJ BHA.
For the end game raids, we run into conflict with the current system because the loot there is specifically designed with class and spec in mind. Many can use the item, but it is designed for only one class/spec. The Loot Rules have been modified to reflect this fact in the hopes that it will allow the best choices for the guild in the fairest manner possible.
The Loot Rules for Kara and Zulaman modify the afore mentioned rules as follows:
For these runs we have a Loot Master, this saves us having constant rolling for greens. For the boss drops and all other blue and purple drops, the Loot Master will say who may roll.
For the BoE items, please call need, before you roll and say it is an upgrade for the character you brought to the raid. Also, we ask that you then link the item the BoE is replacing. We have found that sometimes an item thought to be an upgrade was not or that it was a sidegrade. Preference will be given to those who are upgrading rather than sidegrading. The blended classes are asked to consider their usual role in the raid when choosing a need/upgrade item. If a BoE item is one you want for a character not brought to the raid, roll greed.
We hope this will help clear up any confusion.
Also, a few words about the Guild Bank. We have one and atm all armor and weapons go to Haapada. Everything else goes to Bankia. Anyone may deposite and we ask that you deposite before asking for withdrawls. I reserve the right to be picky about who gets the valuable stuff. We are trying to spread the wealth to everyone. Usually I send a huge wall of spam to link the items. If you would like an item, plese send me a pm. We expect this to change when 2.3 agoes live. The process will be revisited at that time.
