This problem seems very close to what I'm running into with my guild. I was one of the first 85s and one of the first people to start clearing heroics. When time came to raid I was also one of the first people in the guild to be "ready to raid". I play a priest and was shadow. I was almost always first or second on the DPS charts.As more and more people started to get geared I started feeling pressure from the guild to go heals. I felt upset at this because i felt I was performing well enough to warrant my DPS spot. However, as more time got by I felt pushed out of my DPS spot. There was talk about recruiting from outside sources to fill healing roles and some people would be moved to team B (which has still to this day not downed a boss). I geared my priest for heals and can hold my own now in either tank or raid healing.This week I logged on at our designated raid time and Group A was already 3 bosses in.I feel like the guild is moving in a direction that doesn't suit my wants or needs. Should I leave or should I wait it out until Group B gets better as I feel that's where I'm destined to be.....Group B was mostly consisting of Group A alts and people did not seem to be putting as much effort into it because of the "alt mentality"

If I were in your shoes I would leave. What is happening to you is not acceptable and it looks like they don't appreciate YOU (or any other members for that matter) but their classes. That annoys me to no end.I play a Prot Pally with Ret off spec. After I geared Prot very well I started playing Ret. All my guild ever asks me to do when we run heroics is tank, its understandable but we have a very well geared DK that can do it just as well. I only bring this up at all because when I play Ret, I out DPS that DK 8 times out of 10 (when we both DPS). That may sound unlikely but it's true. Ret isn't horrible and it just annoys me that they look at the class and say "you're doing this" and never even offer you a choice no matter how good a member u have been.
