"Robe of Glowing Stone - Priest"HAH! Take that you a**hole mages!
Sure, they could have implemented the bonus rolls differently so people could use less than ideal pieces that no one else needs (off-hand for paladin healers, reforged spirit gear to replace a crafted, etc) but heck, why pass up a chance to generate more qq and alienate even more of the player base when that's so much easier!
Well step to the right direction I say.
So glad that Blizzard isn't waiting to address this. I lost a melee dps trinket last week to a huntard, who then tried to sell it to the group. My face still has a mark on it cause I facepalmed so hard.

NO BLIZZ. JUST NO. HUNTERS DONT WANT EXPERTISE. :/
Nevertheless, this is not the point of my reply, my reply is below;
You're completely correct in regards to this. By giving the loot roll bonus to people in off-spec is most certainly unfair, and will result in an unjust enrichment. That happened to me last week in the Fall of Deathwing LFR. The two-handed sword dropped off Deathwing, and a Protection Warrior needed it; which he later gave to his Blood Death Knight friend, even though the Death Knight lost the roll. My point being here, supporting yours; is that the loot roll bonus should be fixed, so that people currently in off-spec, cannot exploit the system.
I opened a ticket about this matter; and the answer I got was that a team at Blizzard was doing everything to improve the LFR system, and its looting rules. They did not answer on my question directly, but rather gave the previously mentioned answer.
This broken mechanic beats the whole purpose of doing the LFR raids, when a group of people can team up, need on a certain item; and then give it to his/her friend. Hopefully this will get fixed soon.
boomkins can still roll with bonus on agi polearms, but its a start. Mages rolling on spirit is just annoying.

This is good, it will bring a fix the Diablo "click on every sinlge item that drops" mentality. Now let's see how long it will take to be only able to roll for items for your spec and (my favorite) NOT be able to roll if you have won the iitem before.. yes I am talking about the helm/shoulders for off-spec!
Souldrinker is BiS for Frost DKs for each tier of DS difficulty.
It's odd, i know, but this confirms, our BiS Frost is Souldrinker. Nice to have that there
And btw, the proc DAMAGES for 1.3% of our HP AND heals for x2 that amount. So it's also a dps boost.
And before any tanks get their underwear in a knot: think about it. Currently 1H Swords/Maces get itemized with parry/dodge and are used by a whopping 2 (yes two!) specs in alllll of WoW. By adding Frost DKs and (possibly, not sure about this one) SMFury Warriors to the mix it's still only 4 specs! Compare that with say, oh I dunno, a Int Staff that how many specs would roll on?
It's smart. They already fail at making good looking gear (c'mon Souldrinker looks very similar to a 2H ICC Sword!) so to ask them to make one for ever spec is lol
