Take a look at your chat windows to see if your percentage rolls are showing up. Only you can check on that I;m afraid.

I'd just hit need or pass to be honest. if you click on greed, which for some strange reason is looked down on here, anyone clicking on need outranks you for the roll.

but you will see the results. Take a look at them and see if you're at least showing up.

The history of your chat window stays with you until you logout so you dont have to do it while in the STF.

Hope this helps

That system is common throughout MMOs. As mikewendall says, check your chat log for details on how high people are randomly rolling.

If you hit greed on an item, the game enters a random number between 1 and 100 on your behalf as a greed roll for an item. Others are rolling too. And if you were to get 75, and another person who also rolled greed got 74, then you would win. However, if even one person pressed or "rolled" need instead of greed, then they have the higher preference for winning the item (as it overrules any and all greed selections).
