I completely disagree that Moonkins and Pallys should be rolling on cloth. They have their own loot tables, chock full of leather and plate, that cloth casters can't roll on.

I'm a Holy Paladin who is not impartial to wearing the odd piece of cloth every now and then, and I completely agree with you Raval.If I and any cloth wearing class needed a cloth item, I would immediately pass it to them, as I feel it would be quite rude considering I have my own plate loot tables I can always take.

So true.Nobody cares if it's a upgrade statwise. You get your own set of loot that no clothie can use and then you want to go rolling on all the caster leather and cloth too? I dont think so...
As a pally healer, I do keep my paws off anything other than plate, but that's more out of pride than anything else. I'd rather be wearing big menacing scary armor around town than some dress, and I've never really had a problem with having enough spellpower or int.There's more than enough healer plate out there for me, and I'm assuming there's more than enough caster leather as well. Leave the cloth for the clothies.

moonkins roll on cloth because there isn't any leather other than t7/t7.5 that has hit rating on it

@Ganchara (#12)I am a Moonkin, who was hit capped pre Naxx in leather + the odd bit of reputation or badge cloth. In fact, now I am in Naxx, I am having trouble dropping hit.You do not need to roll on Cloth hit gear, there are trinkets, necks, rings and weapons/OH gems etc that all have sufficient hit to hit the soft cap.I never ever roll take cloth while there is a clothie who could benefit - that would be double dipping and terribly unfair. Stop being a loot whore and giving Moonkin a bad name, there are plenty of options and you re just being lazy/greedy. Take your pick.

I think its a balancing act really. And everyone should be respectful on the armor type when classes that can wear it are there. Clothies do get the shaft a little cause all casters can wear their armor. But all cloth classes are casters so on the same coin a pally has all his armor drops split between tanks and DPS and same for Shaman and same for Druids and its this lack of ideal pieces that make some people go this route. I personally thinks its not wise to stray too far from your base armor type cause a pally in cloth has worse survivabilty than a preist short of bubbling which is not a problem if they don't get hit but being prepared is good to. I personally would always give the cloth to a clothie in almost all upgrade situations. I could see myself as a leather wearer passing on a piece of leather to say a hunter or shaman if it was a iffy upgrade for me.
