Just a question on "need" loot rolls. Do you roll need when the loot matches your class or when it matches your class and spec? For ex. two Bounty hunters/Troopers #1 is Tank specced for the FP #2 is DPS specced for the FP. The item being rolled for is a major upgrade for both of them (Primary stats Aim & Endurance. But the secondary stats seem to be more towards the DPS. Can the Tank still roll a "need" since its an upgrade and can equip it?
I understand general rules like always greeding for loot rolls for companions but , Class vs Class & Spec seems to be a grey area for me. Met people on with varying opinion on both sides.
Ex. of arguments ive heard on both sides.
"Field Respecs make it so you can change your specs" -Class
"The Loot Roll Item is tailor made for the spec I'm running for the FP. Secondary Stats matter." Class&Spec
"Some people like to DPS with a little added endurance and defense." -Class
" Why would you roll on something when it's off spec for you?" Class&Spec
" The Primary stat is still an upgrade for me and I can equip it " -Class
This is a no brainer.....
First, your example makes it clear that everyone understands the diffrence between dps and tank gear. So lets carry on with that perspective.
Dps item drops
If the dps rolls need, the off spec person rolls greed or pass. Leave it for them.
If the dps rolls greed, the off spec is courteous and asks if rolling for off spec is OK. Other courteous party members say "sure".
Its so simple. Unfortunetly not all groups have courteous people in them. But, if you follow those easy rules, you are the better person.
