    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?

    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

    Jesus christ.. It's LFR and you can complete first 4 bosses almost just by auto-following someone, if you really want the gear do normals.

    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.

    An overly clunky system brought on because players cannot police their own ability to be a-holes.

    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"

    I dislike people...

    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

    The off-hand not being Pally/Shammy friendly is to balance out the numbers. Now all healers have 1 options instead of some with 2 and some without.

    Right If they could determine a spec they would, they've already stated many time they want the system to be smarter and work off spec but it does nto exist at this point in time

    Well it's certainly not a perfect system, but it's getting better with this change.

    A tank rolling need, and winning a DPS item because of their role bonus is fine? Bullshit.

    In that case tanks should not get a rolling bonus so I can win their tank items.

    Not a stupid way of doing it, I had a Hunter roll Need on Soul Drinker and win the item, over a DK, how is that a stupid way of doing it? Hunters need STR really?

    Would have been funny the time he noticed you can't send anything but conjured items cross-realm.

    ...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.

    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.
