Loot Whore

A Loot Whore is a player in a MMORPG who seizes items which would be of great benefit to other players in their adventuring group, but of no practical benefit to themselves, yet they take them anyway.

Due to the financial benefits of many virtual items for cold cash, the benefits of this approach are obvious. However, the side effects tend to be becoming outcast from the community, and thus noone to adventure with, which tends to cut profit margins down to zero as items become nearly unobtainable in collaborative virtual gameworlds.
