I don't join a group unless I tell the leader what I'm going to be rolling on.For example:I have an ulduar-geared druid, but I really need better tanking offspec gear. I join a heroic group, which I totally overgear, but let them know that I will be rolling on tank items. They get a ubergeared healer, I get the tank gear I need to replace my greens.Another example:I need better healing items, but I'm tanking a pug Naxx on my pally. I've already notified the group that I will be rolling on healer items. A uber tanking item drops -- I cannot roll "mainspec" since I already told them I'd be rolling on healer gear. So, even though I'm tanking, I can't roll for the item -- but if nobody else needs it I'll roll for offspec.THE PRIMARY RULE:Whatever spec I'm rolling on, I DO NOT roll on my alternate spec's loot. One spec. ONE.It is not fair to double-dip to try and get twice as much loot as everyone else. One "mainspec", pick it before you enter the group and make sure everyone knows about it before you start.It is NOT fair to:- Roll on both specs as your "main" spec, essentially getting twice the chances on loot- Announce which spec you're using as your "mainspec" AFTER that shiny item drops. Loot is a gamble, sometimes it drops and sometimes it doesn't. Take your chances like everyone else and pick your spec before you start the run.- Keep quiet and let people assume which spec is your mainspec. If they see a tree, they'll think you're rolling on healer gear. If you're using your non-active spec as your mainspec, let them know before they get saved to the instance.
