She never said each time he won, just that he was needing on everything and won an item she could have used. I agree with her, it IS annoying to actually need an item and have it swiped or potentially swiped out from under you so some moron can sell it for cash. Please, before you call someone a liar, read and understand what they're saying.

Why is that possible? BH can never use rifle, like I can never use pistol... should not even be an option.

When I figured it out I gave the loot to who needed it but this is going to be a big problem because the first button is the NEED... then the GREED, then the CANCEL button... all have different icons so its up to the players to figure them out!!!!
Max, thanks for this little tidbit of very useful info.

The first time I grouped in beta, I kept needing on things I didn't mean to. I can't remember what the icons look like or how they're positioned, but something about the way it was set up had me consistently hitting need when I didn't intend to, and I like to think that I'm not a complete moron. (It's entirely possible that I was so excited to finally be playing that I was just not paying any attention at all.)

This is what the loot master option is for. Use it.

So run the flashpoint again until you get what you want. If you happen to out-level the usefulness of the items while doing so, entirely possible this early, then you didn't really need the item in the first place...

This pattern describes your entire play experience until you start raiding with a guild or permanent group.

Get used to it.

Well it would be helpful.
I once got a loot in a group where there was an earpiece, i forgot i had some earpiece so i figured - i don't have anything on that slot, i need it. After that one guy got pissed since it was +aim earpiece (didn't notice during rush in a group) and he was bh (i was assassin).

To be honest it sucked both for him and me since I didn't really need it once i took a look at it.

Unnecessary conflict, that could be avoided.

Then again people have and will have alts that could use those items.

Still I guess classess that can use item in group should have a priority when they select need.
I used to care, then I took queue in waves

I think this thread is a fabrication.
"me, an assassin(describing me as with the rest of the statement about losing a sabre staff to said sorc), and three sorcerers" how is that 5?

Also, he needed everything, he didn't win. Also, the first blue drop was heavy armor boots... we told him he cannot use them, and to be more mindful (in a very respective way), but he never once spoke the entire FP. I guess i will replace what i have eventually, i just think this is something that needs to be looked at. I knew i'd get some troll posts, nice to see it's not as bad as some other mmo board i can name.
