Crazy I was just going to write a short piece on this same topic today. Thanks for saving me the trouble Anne.Looked at from the other side, the dps priest is always a shadow preist, warts and all. If there is a fight that doesn't favor DoTs... the shadow priest has still gotta use those DoTs. Contrast that with a warlock, the warlock will switch to a demo/destro build and again be optimal for the fight at hand. The same can be said for AoE vs. single target fights. Pure classes can optimize for certain fights, thus maximizing there dps. Hybrids can switch to an off-roll thus maximizing the raid's composition flexibility.With respect to gearing for your pure dps characters other spec, perhaps it is time that we stop using the word off-spec to describe a build you run with for 30%-50% of the fights. Perhaps it will not be the first priority of the guild but at the end of the day, just about every raider is going to have multiple sets of gear. sure, that haste/mastery piece you have on is not optimal for your second spec, but it is more useful than +int leather is to a feral druid
