We already have folks who respec for raids, and we handle it this way. The role you play in the raid is the gear you roll on. If, as in your example, a tank comes in to DPS, then offtanks on bosses, you have to ask yourself which role you most needed her for. If you really needed DPS, then that's what the tank rolls on. If you really needed the tank, and the DPS was an added bonus, then the tank rolls on tank gear. Since, ideally, everyone gets to play his or her main spec sometimes and his or her off spec others, it should even out. If someone pitches a fit about it, he or she is welcome to find other raids. My moonkin main goes as DPS. I also offheal, CC, and in dire emergencies, pick up tank as needed, but my primary role is pewpew lazerz DPS. I roll on caster DPS gear, period, unless the item would be sharded otherwise. When I respec tree in order for the raid to go, I roll on healing gear. That's not really all that hard to figure out.For that matter, if cloth DPS gear drops, the cloth DPS wearers get priority over leather, mail, and plate wearers, since they are more limited. Only if no cloth wearer needs it, OR if the clothies agree to let other classes roll with them, do druids, shamans, or pallies roll on cloth, etc. My guild and guild alliance are rocking enough that 99% of the time, the clothies insist that the other classes roll with them, but that's why I love us!
