I keep seeing people say they're 'forced' to heal or tank when their main spec is DPS (or vice versa). They then use this logic to justify rolling on an item for their main spec when they are 'forced' to play their off spec.In reality, no one is forcing you to play your off spec. They primary reason people feel that they are 'forced' to play their off spec is the perception that it will be easier to get the group going and the instance completed. It can be argued that this is a convenience, not a necessity. I have no problems finding PuGs for my pally when I specify in LFG that I will DPS-only.When I want DPS gear for my pally, I will state clearly that I am there to DPS only. If a healing item drops and it's going to get sharded, I will roll on it. If I need healing gear, I will be there to heal. Sure, there are many times when I will choose to play an off spec to help the group get going, but in those cases, I will never ever roll against someone on an item for their main spec.
