Funnily enough, in my old guild, while raiding this wasn't ever a problem. Far before dual spec was even considered, whenever we raided we did an On spec and off spec roll for items. Much like it is now you have your 2 specs with dual spec, however it is more effective than it obviously would have been in the old days, but the theory on the whole matter hasnt changed. If the GM was unhappy with the roll he should have spoken up that the warrior was not elegible for the item due to his main spec and should make sure there are no main spec players who require it more than he/she does, rather than reacting like a baby throwing their toys out of the pram. If this would not have been a valid solution, the GM should have been clearer on their rules for looting. I dont blame Anonymous for doing what he did, i would probably have done the same in your situation, as far as i can see the rules look like "if you can use it, roll for it" with no mention of which spec it is for. Again if this is why the GM is bitter, changing the rules in their mind just to throw a fit of frustration was not the answer, however if the rules were there for main specs, this should have been mentioned previously to all raid members. At very worst the GM could have said the rules there then got the item handed over, it wouldnt have taken much and saved a lot of face. All that has happened here is you have left hopefully for a better guild, and the GM has a bad reputation
