I find it interesting, the tank, healer, and dps paradigm. One of my friends that got me into mmo's was an avid player FF XI. In that game you had your tank, your healer, and your dps, but there were also other roles that needed to be filled: your debuffer, your puller, your kiter, etc.In tbc (i didn't play in vanilla) I would have said that mages and hunters were part of a cc/kiter role and that of a dps. In five mans I saw the rare ret pally shift to helping the healer through a rough part. As playing a rogue during that time, I was asked to stun lock/interrupt a target at the cost of dps.I think if blizz was able to move back towards a model in which "just" dpsing was the only role that a pure or a dps speced hybrid could do in their current role people would be more content with their class and spec. (plenty of ppl wouldn't for sure but an added challenge never hurt anyone)
