Not sure if this is a side effect to this change they just did, but I did not get the roll bonus on Ledger of Revolting Rituals as a shadow priest. Did the system forget that +spirit can be main spec for hybrids?
Take a guess... no, NOT THERE! You and your dirty mind.
Why a class restriction on being able to wear it, and not a restriction on being able to roll on it? A rogue who'd want the bow would still be able to greed on it if no Hunters want it, for example... w/e
I've been following MMO-Champion for a year now, but never actually made an account untill now, just to comment on this post.
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.
Look on the bright side. One thing to remember is that even if the DK had a "better" chance of winning the roll because his warrior friend was willing to help him out, it didn't make your chance to win the roll any less likely. You still have a 1/X chance to win the roll regardless of how many people "team up".
I know it's not much, but it's better than nothing. At the very least, Blizz is demonstrating their willingness to apply a partial, "band-aid" fix until a more robust rolling system can be deployed in 5.0.
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!
I think this might just enforce the need everything mentality, in that now people can just say, "blizz fixed it, anything I can need is something I should need"
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.
Would have been funny the time he noticed you can't send anything but conjured items cross-realm.
Not really.. I can still roll on agility stuff on my elemental shaman.
...Then don't need it duh.
I don't mind people who need roll Offspec. It's when people Need Roll Stuff they know they can't use the line is crossed.

Stupid way to do it. They should limit the items on what the specs main stat is, to stop Ele shaman rolling on No'kaled etc
This is a band-aid until they can get something better working.... They have said many times that they cannot determine your spec as of right now. It seems like it shouldn't be that difficult but apparently it is, hopefully soon they will be able to patch it up and do something based on spec, but for now this is a huge step in the correct direction. Don't qq about a change for the better, at least we got something.
