What is GDKP?
GDKP stands for “Gold-DKP." Instead of using dragon kill points, instead you use gold.
Items that drop in the run are auctioned off in raid chat. The highest bidder receives the item and the gold they pay is added to “The Pot." The Pot keeps growing in value until the end of the run
When the final boss dies or the raid is called, The Pot is split evenly to everyone in the raid group. If you leave early, you will not get any of The Pot!
Is it safe?
Yes. Blizzard's terms of service strictly prohibits scamming of other players -- which is exactly what "ninjaing" of the GDKP pot is considered.
Is mainspec > offspec?
There is no mainspec > offspec priority, its gold which determines who gets items. The one exception here is you can't bid on a BOP item that you cannot possibly get any use out of. I don't expect a priest to bid on a sword out of spite, but, if it happens, don't expect to actually win.
Is anything reserved?
As of right now, no. If Blizzard adds a limited drop legendary item in some future patch, those legendary items will be reserved. As of right now, however, that isn't an issue.
If this rule ever changes, the raid leader will announce it before the first mob in the instance is pulled so that people can decide whether to stay.
What about BOEs?
Any BOE epic will be auctioned when it drops. You can bid to resell, equip, or do whatever with it.
Items such as Shards/Crystals/Dust/Etc. will be auctioned at the end in "grab bag" fashion.
What are the minimum bids?
Normal Items will start at 2500 gold with 500 good increments.
Thunderforged items will start at 3500 gold with 500 gold increments.

What? was this... is.... that... .... did THIS GUY ^ just post a legitimate non-troll post?? There is something I'm missing here, I'll find it. No way this was a straightforward post.
I feel an odd sense of calm and relief that i can't put into words.
Main Spec: Holy
Main Spec Item Level: 499
Off Spec - Shadow/same
Tot Experience - 12/12 Normal
Gold Willing To Spend - Depends on what drops, but I've spent quite a bit on gdkp runs in the past in DS and WotLK.
PS I also have a DK, Rogue, Shammy I'd like to bring either now or in the future. Their current ilevels are 492,483.486 (atm). I'd probably spend more on the dk/shammy as I need to gear them both main and offspec's. First choice would probably be the DK (Darlek--currently unholy for a change) and gear both dps and prot gear. Well, now that the shammy (Melian) is 486 and viable, she's not a bad choice for resto work :) So, Polybius (Holy Priest - 499) has the best gear, Melian (Resto Shammy - 486) would spend the most for resto/enhance gear, and Darlek (Unholy DK-492) has the best balance of gear and spending so take your pick and let me know which you want :)
Well, since you didn't select someone, I'll plan on being on my resto shammy (Melian), but if we have too many healers I'll switch over to the dk (Darlek)--both are more viable after this last weekend's raiding :)
