During a discussion on whether a specific event counted as ninja looting several people claimed that as long as you had proof they agreed to a set of rules before the run then it could be reported to Blizzard if they stole an item.
Was or is this true? I had never heard this before even on here.
I really doubt that Blizzard is putting resources (manpower) into holding ninja looting “trials” for the accused. With all the he said she said going on, I would think it would be a major headache to sort things out.
Yes they use to have a set policy specifically on ninja looting
Since they basically removed the ability to ninja loot in WoW since then they removed it. The only thing they have mentioned on this is on a couple threads such as this
That the GM will look into it and make a decision based on if there were set rules. They go into detail that master looter almost will never be looked into unless it happens that they SWITCH it to master loot with no one knowledge. Basically this almost entirely takes there’s hands off of ninja looting. Besides a couple scenarios. The loot rules are specifically greed/need and they change it, or some other instances where they specifically say “this item can be rolled on” and then takes it. If they aren’t SPECIFICALLY stated in the second scenario then there isn’t anything they can do.
Not much that can be done about it sadly. Most you can do is create a blacklist on bad players. I have a notepad where I list peoples names, guild, and why they’re on the list. I haven’t ran into any dungeon/raid ninja looters yet thankfully but I stick to running inside my guild, and they have a 0 tolerance policy for ninja looting, sooo. I do have a few people on my blacklist that were stealing guildies devilsaur skins but other than that, I’ve been pretty lucky.
To punish that person? They do this all the time. If someone get’s scammed or their account gets hacked and the person takes all their money they will often just delete the gold and not ‘give’ that money back to the person who got scammed.
Idk maybe they won’t do anything to a regular ninja, but the post that this guy is most likely referring to was more than just a ninja, it was a scam.
But then again at the end of the day it’s always up to the GM. They may throw any and all tickets away that mention loot and maybe they will do something about it. When something doesn’t have a set in stone policy it gets pretty subjective.
Are you…serious? Do you actually need to full connection really broke down that much? lol. You asked why they wouldn’t work to try and give the item back, I explained other scenarios where they take action and delete items/gold but don’t return it as well.
Not sure if you’re being sarcastic. General rule of thumb unless other rules are established is you roll need if you’re going to actually use the item and greed if you’re going to vendor it or sell it on the AH.
yeah i think blizz should ban all the ninja looters. but if you are a streamer they wont do a dam thing i mean look at asmongler he ninja from HIS OWN GUILD and blizz did nothing. and people still want to play with them what a joke.
Not sarcastic. Your “general rule of thumb” opens you up to being screwed by a ninja…that Blizzard will not do anything about. More fair and safer to open it up to everyone and let the roll decide. This is for PUGs only. Guild runs should do whatever they want.
And that ‘general rules of thumb’, to me, only applies to BoP. Like of course you don’t roll on a BoP healing plate as a rogue. But if it’s BoE then it’s all up for grabs.
For example, if a staff of jordan dropped in one of my runs as a priest. I shouldn’t be just ‘given’ this item just because I could use it. I would be dumb not to sell that thing. I would expect everyone else to roll on it as well.
