As previously announced the Raid Finder will use an altered version of Need Before Greed that provides loot roll bonuses to those that have entered the raid in the role (tank, DPS, healing) that uses those items. Unfortunately the system is currently unable to detect spec, and so this creates some issues for classes that utilize stats that are not "common" to that role.
To help clarify which items you will or will not be able to roll on based on the role you entered the raid in, we have some basic guidelines that we've followed that should help you anticipate which items you'll receive the roll bonus on.
If you're in a raid as one of the below roles here is what you'll receive a roll bonus on:
- Agility Leather (for druids)
- Strength plate with tank stats on it
- Trinkets with tank stats
- Trinkets with Agility (for druids)
No more mages/locks taking spirit gear thank you blizzard <3
With Mists of Pandaria our expectation is that we will have the ability to detect spec, and so all of these issues go away for future raids. For Demon Soul there will be some overlap, though, and it's important you're aware of the loot rules as due to the automated distribution system our support department will not be able to assist with any loot disputes while using Raid Finder.

Hows is it not a guarantee? The healer will always out roll the Mage/Warlock because of the +100 bonus they receive. Even if the Mage rolled a 100 and the Healer rolled a 1 the healer would still win with a roll of 101No more mages/locks taking spirit gear thank you blizzard <3
Of course there will be. It's just the healer will get the roll bonus when they roll. It's not a guarantee.
And if it's an upgrade for them, they'll be justified too.
