I'll be very interested to see how resto/ele itemization shakes out in Cataclysm. Enhancement is obviously going to undergo some major changes, what with the changes to Hunters that'll probably mean Int on physical mail will be a thing of the past. But how will the changes to Spirit and MP5 affect our caster and healer specs? With no MP5 on gear anymore, what happens? Will we start seeing mail with Spirit? Will resto shamans and holydins want Spirit now? I'm hoping not. If we give resto some talents that make it so we don't need Spirit at all, this might really change the caster mail itemization. We might start seeing stuff that is perfectly viable for all three specs. Mail gear could come in two broad categories, with Crit for the healers and Hit for ele. (If we want to get really crazy, we could give resto and holydins some talents where they get benefit from Hit.) As weird as it may sound, with the stat overhauls, the solution might actually be more gear consolidation.Of course, reforging might just solve all these problems on its own. Ele stuck with a great piece of gear being held back by a healer stat? Reforge that mofo. Hunter gear keeping you below the Expertise cap? Slap some on it. It'll be really cool to see what reforging does to gear, as it opens up a lot of potential for getting around gaps in our gear.
