Not the same scenario as you, but there was something I noticed. It seemed groups were always looking for tanks in guild. So I took my second spec, wiped resto and went bear and started working on gearing myself up. And things were fine at first, then suddenly, there were an abundance of tanks in the guild. I've maybe tanked once or twice in the past three weeks. I luckily enjoy kitty DPS more, but the sudden shift seemed amazing to me.Brewa

I came back to the game after a break when my 2nd daughter was born and I pumped my warrior up pretty well. He went from all blues/greens and 1 purple (he had done a few runs of Kara as OT) to only 2 blues left in just 4 weeks. Lots of Kara and did ZA every reset those last 3 weeks. My guild all knew I was having a great time w/him and planning to hit 80 on him and tank for us. I also really wanted to check out the DK but not do a full re-roll, so I got to L70 on my DK 5 days after launch, then hopped on my Warrior and started rolling thru zones. Now I'm in a guild full of altoholics. Very few of us stick very well to any one toon. Heck, I recently hit 80 on my 5th. I did a little bit on each of several characters, made sure I got the initial trip to Northrend, updated their tradeskills and got those lower 5 FPs so they could easily travel when I decided I did want to play them.All of a sudden, all of these eople in the guild that 2 weeks ago I couldn't have PAID to tank are talking about how awesome tanking is and how they're going to tank now. By the time I was at L73 (which was only about a week and a half into the xpac) we were already showing ourselves to be short on healers so, more than a bit annoyed, I switched and leveled my Priest.Leveled him up as Disc, went really fast and started healing Naxx runs. Of course, by then we were having people fighting for healing spots and were somehow really light on ranged dps, so I went back to my original shadow spec. Once duals kicked in I went shadow / disc dual and I've been very happy....even if lately the Ulduar runs almost always need me to heal instead of lovely shadow damage *sigh*
