It's hard to make any general claims, but I know that at least a few raiding guilds currently swap players out between battles. If the next fight needs more healers, a DPS or an off-tank gets /kicked and has to wait outside, listening on Vent as the raid proceeds without him. Experienced raiders are used to swapping skills for each fight, but as it currently stands, they do it by swapping players.If the group is really well organized, they can plan ahead: "For Tuesday's Zul'whatever run, we'll need 13 DPS, at least 6 ranged; 3 full-time healers; 1 MT; 2 full-time OT's; 3 healer/DPS; 1 OT/DPS; and two whatevers (CC would be nice, and I'd like to see at least two Shaman somewhere in the group)". Then people can step forward to fill those roles, knowing whether or not they'll be expected to switch.Still, I can see how the "pure" DPS classes, like Rogues, might not benefit from this as much as other classes if they don't PvP.
