Personally i think it's silly to limit armor type to classes. Some of the best gear for hybrids are not of their armor type due to poor itemization (IE: Haste on like every piece of mail which just isn't that useful to enhancement shaman). The players should have a good group synergy to know for example that a shaman should not roll on every leather piece they see, especially if they know they want a mail armor piece from later in the instance, while leather wearers should realize that some pieces will be amazing upgrades to shaman and not complain that they rolled on it. My guild does it this way and really we've never had loot drama. It took a tad getting used to be smooth but now it's like second nature. As for figuring out really what gear should get priority over which spec talk to each other, i can't stress that enough. Sometimes stats out weigh the mp5 to just give it to a healer, and other stats, so talk to them be like does any healer want the item and work out if you should pass or not.

If you're doing it with rolls, you really have to. Otherwise you have (for casters) Paladins rolling on plate, Paladins/Shamans rolling on mail, Paladins/Shaman/Druids rolling on leather, and Paladins/Shaman/Druids/Priests/Mages/Warlocks rolling on cloth.Some classess get put at a severe disadvantage compared to others there.In general, common sense is required. Someone tried to tell me I couldn't roll on a clear upgrade because it had crit. As a Holy Priest, crit is an awesome stat for us now. I told him quite clearly that I was rolling, and if he didn't like it, he could find another healer.The healer shortage works in our favor, do not piss us off. ;)
