"Lolfury" spec? I'm not familiar with it. Is that where you unleash the fury of having to read idiotic posts that use "lol" as punctuation and in random other places it doesn't belong? I'd totally spec that.

Come dualspec I can either choose to be BM(solo)+BM(Raid) or I can be BM(Raid)+MM/SV.
If the CD on pet switching is long, I cannot switch to a MM/SV spec for specific bosses. I mention thaddius because that is one of the fights I can really see how the design of the fight hurt my dps - simply because the pet doesn't get the damage increase, so I only get half the increase others do. Thaddius isn't a problem though, but that kind of fight in Ulduar progression with dualspec an option means I cannot stay BM, as we would have to squeeze out more dps getting our hunters (including me) to rely less on pet damage.
In Ulduar progression, being primarily BM, I would not be able to be effective on bosses that "require" me to be another spec, because if the CD on pet switching is much longer than a bossfight, I would be stuck with a pet that wasn't specced for my BM role because I couldn't bring my exotic back - which would then invalidate the other half of the 51 pt bm talent - we would get dps increase from it, but the exotic pets - forget them (which makes me sad, I like my core hound )
Truly, though - if your guild requires you to respec with such frequency (which I'm not sure is the case) then I would have a hard time sticking around. Hunters are not the same as lolfury, to so speak, will not break the raid if we are seeing 200dps less than a different spec.
