Audubon, Burta posted before you with updates to the dkp bidding rules. 

He did NOT say anywhere that only 1 or 2 tanks or other melee would get geared. That has never been the guild's philosophy.
He said NOTHING that included casters bidding on melee focused loot items. There may be some discussion yet on which category additional items fall into. 

The Raider - Member distinction was setup in part for epic drops.
How many times does a first time raider get to win a rare epic drop while those who have been raiding from the server start have to wait? Random does not mean fair; it means random. This happened multiple times. 

Should we set higher minimum prices for some drops? I think this would be unpopular, but consider the player who is bid up on his BP only to see the next BP drop go for 1 dkp to the person who bid him up.

The "change" last night was to allow a non-tank to bid on the shield. Is everyone ok to allow only certain classes to bid on all/all items? How do we do decide this for every all/all item without making "on the fly" decisions?

I'm asking so that we can be clear, not to argue that we should open the bidding to all.

I don't believe anyone's intent was turn the guild into a krono chase. If the wording used that the Shield of the Immaculate could be sold offended some, that is regrettable. This was the intention and it was not a rule change. 

The original loot rules banned selling any dkp item during the expansion in which it was first dropped. The shield was no longer included in that restriction.

If an item can be sold, is it fair that only one class can bid on it? I am not in favor of selling dkp items period, but how do we handle this? (Btw, there is no indication that the winning bidder last night intends to sell the shield. Having a instant clicky cure disease item on a healer is not a bad thing.)

The recent example of a melee getting a no-drop haste item from PoSky after spending all his dkp on a haste belt brought up new questions. The belt was not obtained with the intention to sell it but was now unneeded. Any rule other than allowing that player to do what he wished with the old haste belt would be unenforceable and just lead to more problems.

I personally prefer that only toons who can and will use the items bid dkp for them. A suggestion late last night was to require that an item should be usable and a "plausible upgrade" for the bidding toon. Example: if a toon already has a PoSky haste item (41%), they couldn't bid on a lesser haste item.

(Separately, the arguments over BIS for x class are largely just BS. Such BIS judgements are largely subjective.)

It was also suggested last night that no toon be allowed to dkp buy more that 1 of any item (except non-lore bracers, rings, earrings, or consumables). I am in favor of this. So then, what will we do when all the raiders and members (mains) have haste belts for example? 

The officers discussion last night made clear that nothing is final. Input and discussion is encouraged from all.

It's a separate discussion but the only thing holding us back from VP is the competitive time sink of key parts. I doubt most are willing to put in the 30 hours + just to get keyed.

Please update with the MQ items you still have and send all droppable items to Burta or one of the guild mules so everything is in one spot. Thanks.  - Burta
