"So you expect the system to not only figure out your average iLevel* but see what specs you have and whether you have gear to support that spec?"Honestly, that doesn't exactly sound impossible. Blizzard knows what stats are useful to each spec. If you queue for a tank, for example, it could just figure out what pieces would make up your best "tank set" and score that. Just think of all the nifty stuff mod designers have done in their free time. I'm sure the people who actually make the game could whip up an internal system to determine the "spec" of pieces of gear fairly quickly.I can kind of see where doucet here is coming from, even if he started getting a little agressive about it. Advice like, "Don't queue as a healer," isn't particularly useful. He knows he can DPS his way to a full healing set, but it sounds like he's looking to actually do some healing as he gears up, which I can understand. Unfortunately, he finds it neccesary to drop group sometimes after getting queued for something his resto gear isn't ready for. I could see that being a pain, and I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard does add in some better gear checking for Cataclysm.**Of course, I won't be surprised if they don't, either. :D
