Default Need before greed in pickup groups?

This used to be the way I saw it happening back on live for the most part. I never understood it to be honest, everyone in the group is doing their part and something drops, everyone should roll, shouldnt they? They could sell the item to get a much needed upgrade as well.

What are your opinions?

Helping gear up the folks that you are grouped with is great so far as i am concerned, but "need before greed" was never even a concept back on Veeshan.

My two rules for grouping:

1) Don't expect groups to be generous. They can be, and it's good to try to be helpful to one another for mutual gain; but you can't force them to be generous. We all play this game for ultimately self-interested reasons, if nothing else because we personally enjoy it.

2) Don't assume everyone agrees. Set ground rules on loot from the start. It's no good arguing that you had a different assumption about loot than the other guy - assumptions are worth less than nothing.

The only camps I could see this being an issue at would be something that dropped a high $$ item such as frenzy, lord, or efreeti where items are all worth 5k+. In this case it should probably be discussed beforehand on how it will be handled.

I'm pro nbg because I don't give a shit about a 300plat RMB, and you shouldn't either or you're just an asshole imo.

You bring up a good point. I'd probably say 1k+ items. I've seen people cry they needed some piece of loot just to witness it for sale in EC 15 minutes later.
