No one is arguing whose loot is whose. I'm arguing that it's completely understandable for locks and mages to be upset with the current situation. That's all.
Ah, in that case, yes, I can sympathize. I won a sword in HoO with no spirit or hit over a mage, but it was a huge upgrade for me. I was open with him and told him that I felt the current situation was a bit unfair to locks and mages. So yes, I sympathize with that aspect of it. What I posted, though, is what Blizzard seems to intend for the new rules to be. It is unfair to locks and mages, yes, but at least understand that the fault is not with the healer (unless he rolled need on that +hit item, then he's a douche), the fault is with Blizzard.
This is incorrect. Spirit is quite useful for ele shaman, boomkin, and spriests now. All three specs have a talent that converts 100% of spirit on gear into hit. From what Ive seen with shaman for example, most spell power mail has spirit on it so they couldnt avoid it even if they wanted to anyway.
Well, yes, those are given exceptions, but I classify those as healers. No, the spec doesn't heal, but Blizzard seems to have classified healers as any class that can heal as opposed to any spec, since they intend for healing classes' dps specs to use the same healer weapons. For weapon stat purposes, ele shaman, boomkin, and shadow priests are healers. They don't even really seem to need pure +hit, so I'd just assume leave the +hit to warlocks and mages.
