Addon That Checks Appropriate Specs for Roles in LFR
 
I've been in an increasing number of unnecessary wipes in LFR lately that weren't because of people failing to mechanics, etc. (or more than usual).

It was because we'd discover after the fight that there had been only 3 or 4 out of 6 healers actually healing, and the other 2-3 "healers" had just queued as heals for the fast queue, but stayed dps.

I was wondering if there is an addon or if someone would be interested in making an addon that does a quick check of healer and tank specs when a button is clicked, just to make sure they're in the proper specs. Then you click another button to remind them to change to the proper spec.

RaidBuffStatus has a spec overview window for sure.
There might be other addons that do the same.

This is a good one. Ive looked around a little to see if I could find anything helpful but I think what Driz posted would be a good option. If you you want something a little bit less hefty you can try Examiner and do the inspections manually.

@Magicalhats27:

When you're posting on WoWInterface, it's just common courtesy to link to addons on WoWInterface instead of always linking to Curse. For addons that aren't hosted on WoWI, or are not up to date on WoWI, then linking to the Curse download page is fine, but for addons that are hosted and up to date, it's a bit rude to send people reading on WoWI off to another site to get the addons.

Here is the WoWI link for Examiner:

Thanks for letting me know. I just always went to curse when I had add-ons to download. No disrespect.

Thank you for the links! I'll definitely check them out.
