The letter is a bit unclear as to what exactly happened. Here are the possibilities I see:1.) The GM is a main-spec tank and the person who got the loot (PGL) is an off-spec tank.2.) The GM is an off-spec tank and the PGL is an off-spec tank.3.) The GM is an off-spec tank and the PGL is a main-spec tank.Unless this guild has The Stupidest Loot Rules Ever, where people roll based on what they happened to be specced to at the moment versus what their actual primary spec is, there should not have been an open roll in situations 1 or 3. The ONLY people eligible for the mace should have been main-spec tanks; an off-spec tank should only have been allowed to roll if no main-spec tanks wanted the item.I'm guessing we were either in situation 1 or 2. If 1, the Master Looter was a moron or the guild's loot rules were retarded. However, this did not justify the GM's reaction. This is EXACTLY why the system has been changed to allow BOP items to be traded to other eligible players for a two-hour window. The GM should have spoken to the ML, explained that main spec > off-spec, and asked the ML to have the PGL trade it over to the GM. Or, if the loot rules were just very poorly thought out, the GM could have addressed them after raid with all of the officers, to change them GOING FORWARD (NOT change them retroactively to benefit the GM).

As best I can tell, it seems like the Guild Master was a main spec tank and the PGL was also a main spec tank who was previously asked to go into the raid as DPS and was then asked to convert back to tank for the Thorim fight.

@Nazgûl: Well then that would bring in 2.) The GM is a main-spec tank and the PGL is a main-spec tank, which would work exactly like #2. The point still stands.
