Hello! I'm an officer in a progression minded guild, who currently plays a hybrid ranged dps, but is considering a reroll in 5.4 to a melee class. I'm wondering what the community here thinks about the best roles for leading raids. Personally, one thing that bothers me a bit about making this switch it that it might be difficult to see what's going on and effectively lead from a melee dps role. I did it long ago in vanilla, but things were a lot simpler back then!
How many of you have raid leaders who play melee dps? Tanks? Healers? Ranged? Any general opinions on what role is best for a raid leader, and how much it actually matters, are welcome. I'm just interested in the thoughts of the community here as I am trying to decide what I'm going to play in 5.4.
