Soulbound Need Rolls 4.2
Well this is a step in the right anti-ninja direction; now to find a solution for raids; like maybe letting the Loot Master soul bind awards of BoEs (though that could get messey).
8. Can we see gear won via need rolls become soulbound? - Lorinall (NA/ANZ)
Yes. We plan on implementing a system where winning an item via Need (when using the Dungeon Finder Need Before Greed loot system) will make a BoE item soulbound. We hope to have this working for the 4.2 patch.
To expand on that idea in case it’s not obvious, we don’t think players should be able to claim certain loot drops based on their class if their only intent is to sell the item. If you want to use the item yourself, awesome, go ahead and roll Need on it and you’ll get preference over players who can’t use that armor type. But if all you want to do is run to the Auction House, then everyone should have equal dibs.
They make no mention of it but they should probably...
Bind on Pickup items which are soulbound immediately, can be traded with anyone that was on the loot table. However, a Bind on Equip item once the soulbound flag is set can no longer be traded. Are they planning on removing the BoP trading option as well?
No idea, as you mention, they don't say.
I hope they make it like BoPs. It's soulbound within your party so you can trade it around if it comes to it, but no more Ah. Course, still doesn't solve the problem of 3 guildies rolling need and giving it to the only one that needs it.
Or of how +Stamina/Procable Dodge (Leaden Despair) can be need rolled by huntards.
It also doesn't resolve the issue of Enchanters rolling need to DE items.
