>In 25-man Ulduar, Ghostcrawler mentions >that there will be "more pressure to have >every player in the role that most emphasizes >their strengths"What exactly does this mean? No Shadow Priests for DPS, for example?A little more explaination is required on this one, I think.

He mentions "player" and "role." I play balance for raids and feral for pvp. I have some feral raiding gear and thus you could say I could DPS as feral to some degree. This isn't my strongest role, however, because I have more experience as a caster druid.

"allow healers to spec into different roles such as group healing vs single target"!!!!!! Has this guy actually understood how blizz is nerfing holy pallies back to the bad old days of single target, single key, keyboard head bashing?@Nikkodemus, have you considered that the PVE Holy pallies may have a point discussing how dissapointed they are in being constantly nerfed due to their percieved abilities in PVP. (BTW how many of the top WOW arena teams have a holy pally?) answer, not as many as the "OMG holy pallies are OP brigade would have you believe.I just wish blizz would completely separate PVP and PVE talents and specs.

I read it more or less the same way Bundee did; it doesn't mean that Cat Druids won't be able to find work, but it does mean that you shouldn't expect that Feral Druid to heal, unless he/she can swap specs (and possibly gear), and has enough healing experience to support the raid.A note on player experience:When I respecced my DK to a tanking build, I ran several normal dungeons and Heroic UK & Nexus multiple times before I was comfortable calling myself a tank in the LFG channel. People sometimes asked me why an 80 would go to normal DTK, but once I'd explained it we were on our way. When my Shadow Priest gets to endgame, I'll likely do the same thing with her, healing regular Nexus at level 80 so she can tinker with gear, talents, and keybindings without endangering the party too much. If you've just respecced to a raiding build that's vastly different from your leveling build, don't be afraid to back down the difficulty for a few days.
