@LuotianHaving more classes with the potential to tank or heal would reduce the pressure on any particular individual to tank or heal. Not increase it, as you suggest. Sure, if your Hunter became no longer a pure dps class, it might increase the pressure on you specifically to do something other than dps. But it eases the pressure on every other member of the group.My main is a Druid. I mostly heal, but can do rDPS. I'd also have a tank spec if triple spec were allowed. My second character is a DK who mostly tanks but also has a potent frost spec.From the perspective of someone who's healing or tanking four times a week because it's the role the raid needs filled, I've always seen the pure dps classes and those who chose to play them as rather selfish. Particularly when they complain that they can't get a group.Your "All I ever want to do is ranged dps, so don't give my character the potential to do anything else or I might be asked to change!" attitude says everything I need to know about your priorities.
