See I always thought the hybrid tax was about ensuring an equal distribution of players per class, so they lead the hardcore DPS nuts to the pure classes to balance the fact that they can't tank or heal.What I mean is that tank specs make about 13% of the game's available specs, but tank players make up around 18% of the PVE players, similarly healers make about 16% of the specs but more than that play healers. If they didn't try to address this there would be a serious imbalance of players (Looking at wowcensus the two least played classes are pures, and the top 2 are the triple hybrids).Having too much of an imbalance causes general problems for players and designers, ranging from pvp, to how they design encounters to loot distribution.
