I think some people are misunderstanding the point. I don't think this thread is meant to tell hybrids that they are supposed to fill two roles at the same time. I think this is mostly about doing what is needed in emergencies.This problem dates all the way back to grinding rep in AV in which a group wipes on a warmaster because warriors don't put on shields and tank them, priests don't pop out of shadowform and heal the ones who are tanking, druids don't pop out of feral or moonkin form, etc. I remember the day when I saw a full resto druid in nothing but healing gear resorting to popping into bear form to save clothies from being two shotted by a whirlwinding warmaster.... only to die a few seconds later because the shadowpriest standing right next to him wouldn't drop shadow form for a second to keep him alive.This problem has always existed, but it's rearing it's ugly head more obviously now that so many people are respeccing for dps for leveling purposes. When I encounter people who won't sacrifice their first place spot on the damage chart in order to keep the group from wiping, I kick them from the group and tell them to have fun soloing their way to 70.
