I’m starting up a list of do and don’ts when you PUG. The list is small but I will add more as I think of them.
If you have a rule you would like to add just let me know
In no particular order.
PUG Rule #1
Once the group is full all players must make a conscience effort and head to the instance. This means that you must stop your questing/farming/pvping etc and head to the instance.
PUG Rule #2
Do not ask for a summon. See Rule #1 or a summon will come.
PUG Rule #3
Please repair, buy your reagents, bring your food/water, etc before you look for a group to run a certain instance.
PUG Rule #4
Green gear BOE/BOP – All roll “Greed”, regardless if the item is an upgrade.
Blue/Purple gear BOE/BOP – All roll “Greed”, unless the item is an upgrade (to your current spec) then roll “Need”.
This will prevent confusion to what you need to do when an items drops from the mob or the boss.
PUG Rule #5
If you’re unable to form a group within 15 minutes, the group should disband or you should leave the party to find another group.
If you are an enchanter make it known before the run begins. This will allow the PUG to approach Rule #4 differently (if needed).
When a BOP item is disenchanted, everyone should roll on the mats at that time. This will prevent unwanted drama with the party and the enchanter.
Edit 1/16/2009, added Rule #6 and 6.1
