Elder Charm Bonus Rolls and Current Spec

100 Blood Elf Paladin
If you're willing to use Elder Charms in LFR you can also switch spec when the boss dies before using the extra roll. You'll get a Prot roll for the main roll (if you killed the boss as Prot), but the Elder Charm roll will be for whichever spec you're in when you press the button (Ret, in this case).

Is this true or false? Read this on the forums somewhere. I've also heard otherwise.

Need to know if I can kill Tayak as prot, switch to ret before the timer is up and get a chance at the Waistplate of Overwhelming Assault

I think people around here have tried it successfully.
Combat tables, diminishing returns and you!

I haven't personally tried it, but I've seen a friend of mine do it and it worked.

Switching specs before rolling the charm has worked for me in normal modes. I don't see why lfr would be different.

Thank you all very much for the replies. I was a bit hesitant after reading the replies in this topic:

I'd seen the question answered both ways and just wanted to try and get a straight answer for myself. If you can speak from personal experience that's more than enough to allay my concerns. Thanks again!
