Ambrosyne’s “main” spec shall always and forever be holy. But…what else? I have some ret gear. Having a DPS toon at max level would be handy (o hai horde). But I have even more prot gear, and more importantly, I have played as prot before. Ret? Nevah. Okay, that one time, in Kara, on Macharious, where I did a terrible 500 DPS. But anyway. Let’s just say I’m a retnub.
On one hand, I don’t know how often we’d need a tank for raiding. On the other, I don’t know how often we’d need yet more melee DPS, either. Let’s face it-a healer dual speccing out of their role is far less likely to get a chance to exercise said second role. We have spare tanks. We have spare DPS. We rarely have spare healers, unless you’re talking 10 mans. Then you can’t often find healers-most of whom are past needing gear from 10s-who even want to go.
Hi, my name is Amber, and I’m the guild’s healbitch…
Anyway. Of course, if we’re going to pug anything, we’d rather it be DPS, not a tank. So I’m leaning towards tankadin. On the other hand (I have a third one?) as we progress through 25 man content, and switch to fewer healers, we won’t magically new more t-
…you see where I’m going, here? Insane! I’m going insane! I might well hold off on dual speccing her until I’m actually needed as something not healy.
Lyrandre is another kettle o’ fish. If I do not go DPS with Ambro, I could go shadow with Lyr, but…she’s trapped in the same healer problem. I’m leaning towards taking her disc/holy, offering the most flexibility for those raid situations where all of our best…single target healers show up to a raid.
Of course, I have to make the gold for dual specs first. Ugh.
