I agree that raid-healing is generally a pretty thankless and monotonous, uninteresting job. But I don't think healing-spec'd classes should be getting equal footing on dps items. It does hurt your raids. Could it be useful to them? Almost certainly, especially when we stop and consider most, if not all of us, will be out leveling to 70 and not raiding in a month.P.S. Some of the arguments listed don't hold water.The reason this healer wants the DPS gear is because he's getting rooked when he's out trying to solo or farm mats. If your DPS classes aren't helping the healing classes farm, then your "for the good of the guild" argument falls apart. The healer can't solo/farm as easily or as efficiently, yet they're spec'd healing for the "good of the guild". The DPS classes need to buck-up and also take one for the team instead of dueling outside of IF/ORG or nancing about in WSG.Also, the "PVP-gear should be gotten through PVP" argument doesn't really support you either. If that healer is out PVPing, he's not going to be in the raids keeping your DPS classes alive so they can get more DPS gear...gear that is useful to them in PVE, PVP, as well as solo farming/grinding.Just my 2copper. :P
