Furthermore, I'd rather people didn't copy specs straight cookie cutter from an armory sheet. If that Orc warrior is destroying you in BGs and you don't know his spec, what gives you the right to rip it off? If you ask him and he gives it freely - sure, but there's nothing stopping you from thinking up your own spec.

The game is already becoming cookie cutter enough as is. I'd rather it didn't become more so. There's a lot of reasons not to have an armory.

I think having an external link to say "this is my character" is a good thing and doesn't hurt the integrity of classic. It is nice seeing other peoples talents but I feel it could be used in a negative way as others could see your non-meta spec.

I'd want one that shows NOTHING but a portrait of your character, as a superior alternative to taking in-game screenshots.

Too much potential community abuse. I'm out.

False equivalency: It's not just 'some random warrior,' it's the raid leader. It's literally the job of the raid leader to know all 8 classes, or at least have competent class officers that can green light it.

If you need to hide your spec to get into groups because you have some weirdass survival DPS spec, there's something wrong with your spec.

And for the record, when the armory was first introduced, nobody denied hybrid healers on the basis of their spec unless it was incredibly dumb, gear mattered more. That was just hybrids randomly freaking out.

I would love an armory for classic. I used to use it to in combo with /who to get groups together - instead of spamming other druids if they're resto, I would just find druids in the level range, then look them up on the armory. If it looked good, as them if they'd like to join.
