Kate said "Therefore, the boomkin has twice as many chances to upgrade that item slot".No, the boomkin has 1.3 times as many as the clothie who cares about spirit. (They're not going to roll on stuff that doesn't) if you don't make an artificial roll restriction.The holy pally has 1.25 times as many as the shaman who cares about int. However if you *take away* organizationally their chance to roll on the lower armor items, then you leave the holy pally with 25% the number of items they can roll on compared to the shaman and druid. There are 3 type of plate, str, def and int plate, and most if it is str and def plate. So while there is 1 plate on each boss in each table for the most part,only about 20-25% fit the pally. You get a similar effect with the boomkin. They only match about 40% or so of dropped gear (why there is so much feral gear IDK), so if you make it so they can't roll on cloth, they get to roll on 40% of the number of things that clothies can.You knew your class was getting left out of some armor when you started this game. I don't think you should get artificial rules to make you have an gearing advantage over the boomkin (who will gear *less* quickly than you if you restrict their rolls) --TreasonCaster armor is relatively rare. It's always been assumed caster classes would use lower armor when better in slot and would get the highest level armor they could when they got around to it. Until patch 3.0.2, the best holy pally gear for 1/3 of the slots (outside tier 6/swp pieces) was shammy mail.
