Last Laugh Drops: Goes to DK or War?
(not sure if this would be better for Theory forums or not)
Last night I landed in a pickup group in Naxx 25 with Maexxna, Saph, and KT left to go. When I arrived I changed out my Port spec/gear and went Fury.
KT wiped us 4 times before we got him down. There were some real issues with the melee ice tombing eachother, offtanks coming in from the side and tombing us and the main tank, etc. It was bad.
Come the end of KT, Last laugh drops.
I'm thinking to myself, this is awesome, as LL has eluded me for many months. The MT was an Unholy DK using a 2hander, one OT was a warrior that already had Last Laugh, and there was another DK that I had never inspected.
Had I actually inspected this other DK, I would have seen he was spec'd as a Frost Hybrid and using 2 one-handers for tanking even though he had talents increasing 2-handed weapon damage (spec = 23 / 33 / 15). I also would have seen that he was only at 531 defense and 26k hp. I suppose 26k is okay for OTing KT if the healers are good and your rotations are down, but 531 is pushing it a bit. Anyhow, I digress.
The call comes up for Last Laugh, and knowing that the warrior already had it I instantly rolled. I got an 11 ><. The Main Tank, again a DK, rolls and gets a 94. Everybody in Vent suddenly spoke out. I didn't say anything at first. The others all shamed the DK and said that was retarded. He said it's a tanking weapon and it goes to Main Spec first. He was chided yet again, as they said he was not spec'd to DW tank, so it would be an Offspec for him, and that using 1-handers was retarded.
At this point I put back on my prot gear and changed to my prot spec. I stated in vent that I'm usually a tank, which is absolutely true, and to inspect me if anybody wanted. I stated that I would really appreciate the Last Laugh and put it to good use, and didn't want to see it go to waste as it was an upgrade through and through, not a novelty item.
Now the other DK starts speaking up and saying that Blizzard has announced they're trying to make DW DK tanking more better, blah, blah. I called the bullshit flag, as I haven't seen anything from Blizz, in fact just the opposite. He also rolls, I forget the result, but beat me and not higher than a 94.
The DKs were both all about rolling and taking the one-hander, yet the myriad of voices on vent were calling them out on it. I chatted one more time /ra and said I'd really appreciate it, but go with what you think is right.
About 45 seconds with arguing still going on in vent, though I'm not participating and just watching/listening, the Last Laugh was master looted to me.
It didn't take long for the DW DK OT to send me a tell, saying what a douche I was and I had no idea what I was talking about.
So, now I finally come to my question:
If you're a master looter, what would you do in this situation? I'm not looking for anybody to say I deserved it, I want an honest opinion.
Personally, I think the Main Tank that was not spec'd for DW tanking should not get it. From looking at his gear, it would mean a downgrade and a respec.
As my being there as a Fury Warrior, I feel as if I have a right to roll on it if nobody else can roll as Main Spec or if it's not an upgrade for them.
But, this other guy, who showed a real lack of inexperience tanking and was literally being zerged through naxx 25 as a tank, was actually using 2x one-handers (red sword and titansteel bonecrusher), even though he was actually spec'd for 2-handers.
It's a difficult situation, as everybody I think has some sort of claim on the item.
Do you go by the actual results of the rolls, or do you make a call and say Main Spec (role) over Off Spec (role), no matter what ... or Main Spec (actual) over Off Spec (actual)?
... or throw your hands up in the air and shard it, lol?
