Gawd I LOVE ass hats...
First of all let me say that I typically don't make a need roll for things that I don't want or need, if im just going to turn around and sell it I'll make a greed roll, for which it was INTENDED. If someone says they need it before I roll I'll generally just pass on it.
So I was in DM last night with a PUG of 5. Two of which knew each other, one was a 20 hunter some the other was in the 40s. Anyway, when we enter they lay down the rule: "All BoP (bind on pick up) should be passed on and then we discuss who gets it. Everything else is free reign". I have no problem with this because the stuff that I want isn't BoP.
After a bit in the instance, we come across a piece of set eq. I think, "awsome, I'm looking for this set! I'll roll for it." After I make my need roll the lvl 20 hunter guy messages me, "I need this." To which I reply "I need it too". He either didn't read my message or didnt understand it and messages again saying, "I need this". He wins the roll and yet again he messages me "I really need this". I'm sitting here thinking, "so other people don't need eq. they should just give everything to you and what ever you don't want they can have." He finally notices that he won the roll and then stops pestering me about it.
A few minutes later the 2 guys that know eachother both start need rolling EVERYTHING. I being the rather passive one let it slide and only greed roll thinking that they really did need it and think, "this is kind of annoying". Then they really start to get on my nerves. We come to a chest and THEY call for a roll, to which I win. Before I get to it the lvl 40 has already taken what he wanted and disenchanted the items. Then and only then does he say that I can have it! He only left 2 mana potions and a grey item.
We continue on with me becoming increasingly disgruntled with their greedy antics. Then towards the back 1/3 of the instance another piece of eq drops from that set. To which I do a need roll (only the 2nd one I've done the WHOLE instance). Again the 20 hunter starts SPAMMING me that he needs this. At this point I become fed up with them. I win the roll this time and he continues to pestering me to giving it to him.
He then starts crying to his level 40 friend who starts saying to give it to the 20 hunter. I mentioned that it according to THEIR rules the item wasn't BoP and was up for grabs. Furthermore we had already had a fair roll for it and I saw no real reason to give it up. To which they replied they wanted to roll again. WTF? Was the first roll not fair enough? Are the odds better now with us 2 rolling as opposed to when everyone else passed on the item and it WAS JUST US 2 rolling? After 2 minutes of them bitching I become determined not to fold to some spolied brat that didn't get his cookie because the rules weren't in his favor. It finally came to the point where the lvl 40 starts to try and bully it out of me. Threating to kick me out of the group and at that point I just start ignoring them by continuing on and killing mobs. It really didn't matter since we were almost done with the instance, they hadn't helped me with any of the quests I needed to complete and since I've done it before I didn't need to kill final boss.
But really, I mean it's not like the set is EXTREMELY RARE (the ONLY one that is hard to get is the chest piece which I had mind you). The only real hard part is going people to go with you to do the zone. To which he doesnt seem to have a problem with his lvl 40 clanie/friend/whatever to drag him through the zone collecting the set. I on the other hand have to pracitcly twist arms for get my clanies to even talk to me yet alone help me with a low level instance. The ONLY reason why I was able to run it with my guildies is because I noticed that they were areadly going, running DM with a non-guildie mind you, and I asked if I could join them. This is a guild that supposedly prides themselfs with "helping others". >_< Anyway, if he really wanted the set then why did they even bring anyone else?
