    Default Need vs Greed

    I've been playing Rift for six weeks now, but for some reason I've never quite understood the difference between "Need" and "Greed" when loot comes up. I guess I've been too distracted to notice the actual behavior. Well, I have noticed that clicking on "Need" actually grabs the loot, but what does "Greed" do?

    Greed means you want it but aren't going to equip it. Need rolls win over greed rolls every time.

    The standard group loot setting of need before greed rolls just means that the group is expecting only those who can use an item will roll need, if the item is an upgrade. People will generally pass if they don't want the item at all, allowing others to have a better chance at gaining the item. People can also roll greed if they want the item to sell or use, but it's not an upgrade to what they have for their current toon. So generally, if you want the item for an alt, roll greed, and you may gain it. Unless the group has already agreed that you can roll need for that alt. Need will negate any greed rolls, allowing only those rolling need to roll and get a chance at the item.

    Pass = You don't want the item.
    Greed = Would be cool if you win it for an alt or to sell it. Luck will decide it.
    Need = It's an upgrade and you want to equip it Or you are a greedy jerk.

    Also, in Warfronts you should roll Need on everything (because everyone else will). The only exception is purples, which are BoP. Only Need on them if you'll use em.

    No idea why there is even an option in PvP as everyone will select need. (slaps around the dev team)
