Okay, so last night, I decided to join in the PUG fun on the PTR. We had a random shot of getting in an instance group with a Blue, and that meant people would actually be using the tool. Here’s what the first menu looks like when you want to sign up for the LFG dungeons:
My first observation: No one wants to do Heroic Occulus. We had to choose the random heroic feature. When I got matched for my first group and zoned in, we were in Occulus. Everyone in the group said something like “heck no” and disbanded the group. Apparently, getting a 15 minute debuff preventing them from joining the queue again was better than running heroic Occulus.
That said, the second group I got into (after my debuff wore off) was Heroic Nexus. I was lucky enough to be put into a group with an Enchanter, so when we hit the first boss and his loot dropped, this was what popped up:
Okay, so we all chose DE on it, because none of us wanted it, so someone won the shard. If someone wanted to roll need on it though, they would have won the item.
Then, I decided to be more creative and see what happens when I rolled greed on something:
So, my greed roll got beat out by someone else’s Disenchant roll here, so someone else won the item, and received a shard. I did, however, win one of the green items with my greed roll later in the run:
So, it does look like DE and greed is given equal weight, and you can greed/DE both BOP and BOE items (both of the greens were BOE random drops). When you won the DE roll, you received the appropriate kind of shard in your bag instead of the item. If you rolled greed, you received the actual item – but you didn’t get priority over the other people who rolled DE.
When one of our group members was logged out for too long, the group leader initiated the process to remove them from the group. When the leader does that, everyone had a vote box come up, asking if you wanted to kick them out or not. I wasn’t fast enough to snap a shot of what that menu looked like.
When you wanted to fill a spot in the raid, you could re-enter the queue. At the point where you re-enter the queue to fill the spot in your group, you get a box that pops up asking you to confirm your role:
Once we all confirmed our roles, a 5th member was added to our group. This new member at this point was one of the Blizzard employees, who finished the group with us. We had a lot of fun blasting our way through the rest of the instance.
