All I know is that when my newly-dinged-70 warlock alt ran Steamvaults recently and got outrolled by a boomkin on the cloth belt from the final boss, I was pissed.

Would you have been upset if he'd outrolled you on a caster dagger? I mean, you can both use daggers and staves but he can use maces, should he only roll on caster maces?

No, weapons are a different story. I don't know why, they just are. ;)I have mixed, complicated feelings on the issue, really, and can see both sides of the argument. As I said, I just know how I felt when a leather-wearing class took a cloth item that I needed, when I don't have the option of wearing leather. It just didn't seem right to me. There's also the chance that the boomkin will change his mind and decide to go feral or resto later on, whereas as a warlock I'm limited to a single role.On the other hand, I also have a 60+ shadow priest alt that never heals and will happily roll on gear that traditionally would be mage or warlock stuff, so...It's a complicated issue. I guess it all boils down to, people want loot, and when they don't get loot they get mad/disappointed.

I'm sorry, but it's perfectly fine to me. Especially with a Boomkin. My buddy decided to repsecc such, and I checked through every single boss loottable in Kara. Not counting tier gear, there is ONE, ONE leather piece with spell damage on it. Even in the dungeons the moonkin gear is sparse, so I completely understand why the guy roll against you. Sure he can wear leather and you can only wear cloth, but if the only upgrades for him are in cloth anyways, doesn't that limit him just as effectively as though he was limited to cloth only?

You should be pissed at Blizzard for forcing him to have to go for it.If you are this mad, go to the forums and suggest they fix itemization for the hybrids. As has been said, Kara has 1, that's 1, Boomkin item. This is a raid that has something for each slot for a tank, healing gear of every armor type, Hunter mail in spades, decent amounts of elemental gear, tons of rogue leather and dps cloth. They put a ton of Boomkin items in the badge gear. Too bad the boomkin have to be able to do heroics to get it all and pretty much no leather is found in raids for them.I feel for them. I have to wear leather a lot as an enhancement shaman.
