Nina hit it right on, and the very last thing Anne wrote sums it up through most of the game until Cata "I never needed one until now".My best friend used to raid with me in a 25 man during wrath, and we had the same issue with her: she was a dagger rogue, always was a dagger rogue, and never needed or wanted a combat spec.Patch hit an we had to assemble several speed runs for her to get combat weapons so she could retain her spot. Fortunately for her, she got the 2 heroic axes she needed within 3 weeks, and it wasn't really an issue, but it still sucked for her when she was suddenly rendered impotent for the only thing that she thought her class did: DPS.I'm personally of the opinion that the 4 pure classes aren't actually pure dps classes, but control classes, and other than the warlock class, that's true (locks need a glyph to be viable CC). Think back to TBC, what was spammed in trade?LF Tank, healer, Mage/rogue/hunter, and 1 dps.Every group needed a way to cc a mob, and it just happened to be that 3 of the 4 "pure" classes were that cc option.Fast forward to dragon soul heroic fights, my guild requires everyone to be dual spec'd and be able to justify your off spec.Your a lock? You better have an aoe spec and a burst specWarrior? You better have a tank and an arms specRogue? Your single target and your morchok spec. Have something other than morchok and you better explain yourself fast or get benched.
