So I haven't played FFXI in about 3 years, so they could have fixed this already, but back in the day if rare/ex loot was accidentally given to someone in the group that it wasn't supposed to go to, there was no way of fixing the error. On WoW, you could put in a ticket for a GM to fix the error, and a few months ago they instituted a change where any raid items can be traded to anybody else who was in the raid at the time the item was looted for up to 2 hours. So if the healer accidentally gets looted those tank gloves, they can still be traded to the tank (so long as the tank was in the group at the time they dropped) for up to 2 hours afterwards.
Just hoping this is implemented in FFXIV, cause I personally have been burned in FFXI due to loot that was supposed to go to me going to someone else by mistake, and it sucked.
