Do Rogues get priority over a lockbox?

General Discussion
I'm still wondering why need is even an option on lockboxes ...
I would say yes, because the vast majority of the time people will just get rid of them rather than get someone else to open them, if they're unable to themselves.

Honesty they need to just disable need rolls on lock boxes.


Exactly
My Engineering skill and my Paladin's blacksmithing just rang up.

They disagree.

Rogues will roll just like everyone else, besides, even if the person who wins it is not an engineer or blacksmith, they can still get a rogue buddy or ask trade chat to find a rogue to open it for them.

So it's an even playing ground when it comes to these things

No. Anyone can open it. You don't need those crappy rogues for anything, they're useless.


Yeah, see if I ever bail you out of anything again :P

I tend to pass on lockboxes since most of the time, the contents are junk or useless to me.

/agree
They really should just disable need rolling on lockboxes.

Oh, guess I'm a bit late on that one.

This, m'lady, is hurtful. We've more uses than you might think, you just haven't found the right Rogue yet.

Whenever a lock box drops, I always roll need, regardless of what the group says. So in runs with me, yes, rogues get priority on lock boxes.
S'okay, I can, and will, hit need with ya.

Realistically, more often than not you'd lose fingers with the Engineers way.


But it's much more exciting when i open my lockboxes to see if I'm going to take an explosion in the face or not.

If a lockbox drops from a mob and you have a rogue in the group, does he get priority to get it since hes the only one that can open it? IMO they should since no one else can open it and if there isnt a rogue then you can roll whatever you on it.


On m Rogues I always need on lockboxes. No complaints ever.
