Same thing happens when farming mats. If you have a CC...use it.
This has been happening in MMOs since day one; it is NOT limited to this game. It is called "internet anonymity." Individuals think that because they are acting behind the guise of an "avatar" they can do and say whatever they want. Another issue is that while players affected by their bad behavior can report them, there is nothing that CS can really do to resolve the issue:

- if it is a respawning quest objective a CS rep cannot respond in a timely fashion anyway; the object respawns in a time frame FAR shorter than a CS rep can get to your ticket.
- if it is a loot chest or a gathering crew skill node a CS rep cannot track what was looted and give it to you; you do not know what was in fact in the box or node to begin with so there is no way for a CS rep to determine what in the offenders inventory came from that box/node. This is further complicated by the fact that most of it is probably sold to a vendor or on the GTM or used in crafting.

The end result is that 99.999999% of players affected by these jerks do nothing. And this lack of response to bad behavior only emboldens the jerks more.

It sucks, but this behavior will go on so long as the person behind the keyboard remains anonymous.

Well, I'm one of those quiet types that won't complain or even whisper to them how I felt about their behavior but I do believe what goes around comes around.

From my own non scientific observations there are two types of people that ninja loot.

The first group you won't get much satisfaction from, they are most likely mmo veterans and probably way more skilled than you or I. They could easily clear all the content but they are 'speed rushing' through it trying to grind something in the least amount of time. It doesn't make it right but they are out there. The best you can hope for is you're on a pvp server, you see them get ganked and you don't help them. That's what I call just deserts. It's even better if they are wearing their legacy name. So if I run into any of their alts, same rules will apply.

The other type of ninja are the terrible players. You've seen them; thier companion dies in seconds, they die a few seconds later, they can't complete anything and end up skipping loads of content as a result. Their only way of completing objectives is to ninja them from others. These people I almost feel bad for. If they would just ask in general chat or whisper someone, they'll probably get the help and advise they need.

I always put them on blast in general chat. Also, I will challenge them to a duel. Not that I can defeat everyone with my toon but my hope is that they see that I found their behavior offensive and rude. Of course I wind up either dueling or getting rejections from lots of people lol

Oh yeah, one more note to my last post...

Any chest/node/quest object is strictly speaking not "yours" until you actually gather it. This is an indisputable fact. Again it sucks but it's the truth. You fighting mobs around a chest/node/quest object does not always mean you are after that object. Nice people (like myself) wait until you are done killing and see what you do next. And in all candor, I typically only give players to a count of three before I go for the object.
