Make Need Bind it to the Character, and make it worth 0 EC.
Greed means you can sell it on the exchange or to a Vendor. Need means I intend to equip it right now.
Oh and this change would see people whinging for weeks about everybody still hitting need on everything and the people who don't read patch notes complaining their loot is bugged. But after awhile I think the guy hitting Need on Tac console will be the guy using that flavour of weapons.
MMM..... that would be a delicious nerdrage session.
