This addon brings back the Need-Greed loot system and makes it work for Personal Loot. The goal is to make asking for, giving away and trading loot easy and straightforward, in PUGs as well as organized guild groups. Everything is designed to be as streamlined and out of your way as possible, so you can focus on playing the game instead of manually checking and keeping track of items you and others want.
Roll on tradable personal loot from others
Whenever an item drops for someone in your group that might be an upgrade for you, you will get a good old Need-Greed-Pass roll window (remember those? :P) to decide if you want it or not. Rolling "Need" or "Greed" will add the item to your actions list (see below) for easy asking and trading, and optionally automatically send a whisper message to the owner asking for the item. If the owner uses PLR or another compatible addon as well, then all this happens in the background without need for whisper messages.
Give away loot you don't need and/or handle incoming requests
You also get a similar Keep-Greed-GiveAway roll window when you loot something that your party members might be interested in. If you choose "Greed" or "Give Away", then PLR offers the item to your group through party chat and handles accepting bids, picking a winner and trading the item for you. If you choose "Keep" on the other hand, then it'll automatically answer incoming whisper requests with "I need that myself".
Keep track of pending actions, and easily complete them
All your pending actions (asking for loot, trading, ...) will be shown in a simple list on screen, along with buttons for completing them. Trading in particular will start following the person, open the trade window once in range and automatically put the item into the trade window, so all that's left for you to do is hit "Accept".
Only bothers you when it actually makes sense
PLR is especially smart when it comes to choosing the right items for you. Many factors are checked before you are asked to roll on or give away an item, e.g. if it is actually tradable, what ilvl you and your party members have equipped, class restrictions, trinket type, and so on. It will only ask you to decide when it actually makes sense, while making sure you don't miss any loot you might be interested in.
Also works for organized groups and masterlooters
It works great for randomly giving away loot in PUGs and organized groups, but it also has a masterloot mode where one person decides who should get which item. The masterlooter can also configure things like custom answers and a loot council.
Can be configured to your liking
Just about everything can be easily tweaked in the options menu. This includes when to send messages to other players and their wording, what items should be considered "useful" (e.g. only certain specs or transmog missing) and which parts of the UI you want to see. See this Wiki page for details.
Plays well with other addons
This includes the popular loot roll addon Personal Loot Helper, Pawn to only roll on stuff that actually has your preferred stats, and EPGP to give away loot based on PR value or credit GP for awarded items.
