Had this last night. We did Lady Deathwhisper and she finally (first time I've seen it) drops the bracers I really wanted of her (I got good crafted bracers right now but I need something better if I can get it).They are spirit cloth items but got a decent SP boost - and for a Lock spirit does matter, Fel Armor makes it important. Not as important as Hit of course (though I'm close to capping anyway) but certainly not unimportant. As I rolled a low 17 I was actually still expecting to win as I honestly didn't expect anybody else in that group to roll at all, until a druid rolled 45... I wept. I did ask why a druid would roll on cloth at all - and he simply said "it's better than the leather I got" ... well can't argue with that. Such items as this are really a bit fair game - locks and healers at least all get benefit. As a general rule in our game they are luck of the draw. Hit gets a bit of a DPS priority and Spirit gets a healer priority but it's not an absolute.I won the staff of Saurfang a while back and actually GAVE it to a healer (during the trade-able hour) after she told me she'd been silly and forgot to roll. She didn't even realize that locks need spirit at all - but I gave it to her nonetheless on the basis that she needed it more than me.It does mean my SP is lower than it would have been despite my current blade+offhand combo having the same SP bonusses as the staff - simply because staffs can take a higher SP enchant than blades can. So far it's dropped twice. The first time the mage beat me on the roll, the second time I won it and then gave it away... next time - I damn well got dibs :P
