We are clear in our guild that it doesn't really matter lootwise if the character playing in the raid is a "main" or "alt." It is the person playing the character that matters and that is the same. In general, there is usually a "main" character that someone has chosen to gear up and raid with. However, due to raid composition that person may be asked to bring a different character for the greater benefit of the raid. That character is just as entitled to loot as if the "main" had come to the raid.

I'd agree for the most part. if a person is asked to bring their alt Pally because the guild needs heals, then yeah they deserve loot the same as mains. If however, a person brings their rogue-alt who they've been leveling just because they want to pew pew for a change, they shouldn't get loot over those who's mains are rogues. Not to pick on DPS, but that's what usually happens and starts these discussions. If you have a regular raid spot on a particular toon, and the guild depends on it, then that is the main.
