Fortunately, when we run raids, we allow main spec to still role on main spec gear. So if your main spec is tank, but you need to dps for the fight you get to roll on tanking gear as your main spec. You'd only get to roll for dps gear if nobody needed it main spec. We do it this way to allow for greater flexibility between fights. If we have to pug people, we typically do ask what their main spec is, and we check to see if they are geared accordingly for that spec. Luckily the tanks in our guild are pretty generous, and if we notice that an upcoming main spec tank is lacking on gear, we generally happy to help him get the gear he may need. We can't always be there, and it's good to have the back up players atleast geared for when they need to step up.As for experience, that's still a problem whenever you raid with the top teir of content. Tanks for lower tiers and heroics are always needed, but that top teir is definately hard to get into. Dual-spec would let you see the fight, but it's still not tanking it.
