So the other day I was in a group that had an lfm up for tower. I'll try to keep to the fairly relevant details. 40 minutes later we completed - it was a smooth run, no major hiccups. Average party make-up, paladin(s), barbarian(s), fighter(s), rogue, clerics, and me on a caster. (I'm on a 20/sorc btw) and what magically appears in the end chest? But a +4 str tome.. in my name. Well, considering how rare +4 tomes are I pondered keeping it for myself. I mean I really pondered it. Then I considered the alternatives. I had a couple people in group I know and thought maybe I should just pass it to them, but there were two. Do I let the two of them roll? Perhaps I should put it up for roll? For everyone? Should I pick who gets to roll? If someone is going to keep it for a TR, then why shouldn't I just keep it? What are the odds someone else in party (this one or any other) pulls a +4 cha tome are going to put it up for roll for my sorc, or keep it for the +1 umd benefit? Who knows.
In the end I put it up for roll for melee toons, but I should have explained a little better since the dex based rogue (according to myddo anyway) felt compelled to roll. Thankfully there was no drama as one of the barbarians won the roll and graciously accepted the tome.
I guess I'm just wondering what others feel they would have done in the same situation. I suspect some tomes like con are different since everyone benefits (hp) , but a wis tome for a healer type, charisma for bard/sorcs (possibly even fvs), str for primarily melee, dex for rogues or possibly dex based rangers, int for wizards or possibly rogues.
Should I have been greedy and kept it for myself?
What would you do?
