I play a plate dps, with the new mechanic for Prot Paladins, I feel like a damn kitty druid fighting tanks for gear. Is it dumb? I think so. Will I deal with it? Yeah, hate the mechanic not the player.
OT: It's people you're playing with... Those are dumb creatures, so don't expect too much from 'em.

Don't cry if a Healer rolls Need on +hit/-spirit gear for his off spec without saying anything.
You can link your Spirit to hit talent, he can just macro "off-spec, deal with it.". That's the attitude you lot have here.
Ever heard of the term, what goes around comes around?
Probably you lack the decency of asking, but I always ask before hitting Need. Because I generally see spirit items should be prioritised towards healers first, since they got half the item table compared to Spell DPS who can easily mix and match...
Edit --- Just noticed this was in the Shaman forums, nonetheless I'm talking about spirit gear in general.

Not sure why they would get upset. It's been like that since Cata. They should know.
Spirit gear isn't healer gear, and hasn't been for years. All you're doing is explaining how your understanding of itemization is out of date; you aren't actually making any argument that holds up to anything.
You are complaining because, as a healer, you're not a special snowflake who gets dibs on gear. Well, suck it up. You aren't special. You don't get to claim dibs.
I joined a new raiding guild who had downed the first 3 bosses of MSV on heroic, no less. I'm asked to go DPS for a fight, and the raid leader whispers me asking me if I have any real DPS gear. "I'm wearing my DPS gear." "But it's all got Spirit on it." *facepalm* So yes, lots of uninformed people.
The "what comes around comes around", which you are oh-so proudly mentioning cannot be applied here, at all. That smiley after it is kinda sad, you thinking that you are being smart when in fact...let's just say that you are not. Getting tired of ppl that think they know something but are clearly wrong.
You talk like you know it all but infact you are being very illogical.
One more time then, the healer gets to use exactly 0% of the hit to use with his main healing spec while the shaman gets 100% of the value for his _main_ dps spec.
That said, and I hope you stop posting nonsense now,
I just don't see how healers these days still cannot know that a spirit+haste ring for example is perfect itemization for an elemental shaman. Even more so at this point in time when everyone is still gearing because it opens up a lot of off-spec possibilities should it be needed in raid as well. When you take that into account spirit is even > hit.
I feel like I'm having to explain myself whever I do need on spirit gear over a healer to avoid getting kicked, more like begging the group at some point, that shouldn't be the case really.
