Our guild, similar to yours, abandoned the DKP system for the new expansion, and have had nothing but success with it. The basic rule is, if it's for your main spec, you get first dibs, and offset gets to pick up whatever mains dont need. People in our guild our honest and mature enough to follow a guideline like that with no issue, and I highly doubt that duel-specs will change that. We see duel-specs as simply something that will help raids when they need a quick replacement for a DPS, etc.

My guild uses a dkp bidding system. There is a minimum bid for non-tier and a higher minimum for tier items. We usually cap the dkp someone can have as well. This assures that the more frequent raiders who really want something pretty much have first dibs because they'll have the most dkp. It also allows new people not to have to sit at the bottom of a list and wait ages to get gear. It's worked out for us for a while. People who complain are usually loot whores.We haven't even thought about ramifications of duel spec. We're likely to go with option 3. We all know that the guild master is the main tank, it's what he does 90% of the time. Why would he start bidding against fury warriors and dps death knights? I just assume what we'll do is say pick a main spec now and stick with it. If they change and we don't need what they've changed to they're not going to get a spot in the raid. If we do need them to change, there's not likely going to be many other people rolling against them anyway.
