here is a rough translation of my suggestion in the german Forum:
I have now reached a point where certain encounters in LFR do not have any upgrade for my DPS Set but they have some items which I could use for my tank spec. This creates a problem and so far I just see 3 possible solutions:
1.) I queue as tank - downside: My tankgear is worse than my DD set. I would be of more help for the group playing as DD. In addition, I would lose possible DD item upgrades.
2.) I queue as DD and switch to tanksspec for certain encounters. - downside: My damage is way lower this way and I am not a big help for the group. I also risk to be votekicked.
3.) I queue as DD and just vendor all the useless drops until I need no item from any boss. Then I queue as tank. Downside: This is very frustrating and will take some time. And my tankgear is still worse than my DPS set.
My Suggestion would be, that one can choose the prefered lootspec regardless of my role in LFR. (compared to the Filter at the vendors)
This way everyone can bring their most powerfull gear and gear up the other specs. No tricks needed which would be of disadvantage for the group. Even if, for example, your healerset ist extremely powerful and no upgrade is needed from LFR, you can still queue as a healer and build up your second or third set.
As the loot is individual anyway there is no risk to steal loot from the other payers.
What do you think about that?
