Should You Report “Need Roll” Abuse?

So a druid tanks Hour Of Twilight wearing Betrayer's Pauldrons (with no gems or enchants meaning he probably just won them) and still rolls need when they drop from last boss (while I'm in 346 shoulders). No time to react he already left as soon as he received them. Not to mention he needed on Stalk of Corruption.

So my question is: do GM's care about these forms of abuse or am I gonna waste time trying to contact one?

BTW this is the first time I see this happen in 5 years, I think his intentions were really to just evil ninja everything to make people mad. (does this happen more on Horde side or what?).

Thanx for your neutral answers and if you're just gonna say "get over it" or "QQ moar", I tell you right away, your comments are useless.

edit: in case you didn't read carefully he was already wearing the item he rolled need on.

Blue poster makes this behavior seem acceptable. When it should be shunned.

Indeed - and shunning is a social thing, not a rule thing.

There are far worse penalties incurred from your peers for social infractions than anything we can think to do. Not being able to play a banned account is one thing - not being able to play an active account because no one will associate or group with you is quite another.

Not breaking rules does NOT equal - ok. It's just not rulebreaking. Social conventions are within every players grasp and another thing entirely.

Except that people who break social rules don't have to socialize with people on separate servers, lol. That threat might have worked 5 years ago when LFG/LFR didn't exist, nowadays? Not so much.

Not true - if everyone in a raid put them on /ignore, they won't be grouped again. It's even more effective in a raid because that's 24 people vs. 4.

Folks, this thread is going downhill, I've answered all that the Game Master department can.

More tools is a development thing. By all means, please do post well considered and civil recommendations and suggestions in the appropriate forums.

There is a thing about tools though, if folks don't use the ones available it does bring up the question is it worth developing more.

Vial of Shadows Not Scaling With RAP

Blizzard confirming that Vial of Shadows is in fact bugged at the moment, by not scaling with RangedAttackPower.

Barring unforeseen complications, this will be fixed in an upcoming hotfix.

Thank you for the feedback!

"Warcraft: Darkmoon Faire Zone (Patch 4.3)"

Rythian shows Simon and Lewis the new Darkmoon Faire, which is a "Seasonal-Daily-Zone" added to World of Warcraft lately. It actually just ended in-game, but we're interested if people are still interested in this game as we actually still have active accounts :)

Darkmoon Faire – Known Issues

Update 2012/01/06

Originally Posted by Blizzard

We’ve identified a number of issues with the Darkmoon Faire this month, and they should be resolved for the February faire. Specifically, we found problems with:

• Attempting to turn in the Adventurer's Journal and Captured Insignia which are associated with these quests “The Captured Journal” and “The Enemy's Insignia”. If you are having difficulty turning in these items, please contact our customer service department at http://us.battle.net/support/en/ and they will be able to provide you with 5 Darkmoon Prize Tickets per item.

• Unfortunately, “The Darkmoon Faire” quest cannot be made available for characters that previously completed the quest. This is due to the fact that this quest is not a new quest, but reuses the old quest ID. We realize this was an error and will be taking steps to not repeat it for future quests, but it does mean that characters that completed it before will not be able to complete the new version with the ticket reward.

• The reset of monthly achievement progress experienced by some is unfortunately unable to be reinstated. We apologize for this error and have taken steps to ensure it does not occur again.

January's Darkmoon Faire will come to a conclusion on Saturday, Jan. 7 at midnight. The faire will return again on Feb. 5, as planned.

We apologize for the inconveniences some players have encountered with these issues. Thank you for your patience and feedback.

Update 04/01

Once again we apologise for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.

If you're on a PvP realm you're cautioned to steer clear of Booty Bay (or potentially visit with haste) as the guards there appear to have had too much fun already and aren't likely to be enforcing the town rules until morning.
