The 3 spec thing is a great idea. Remember this allows you to set up your bars (even if only slightly) and use different talent/glyph set ups. Some will never make use of it, but others will. Now if they'd increase the number of macro slots....

Man

what's the point of even having specs if you can just be whatever you want, whenever you want. It's not like it was even a big deal any more; drop combat, respec.


They're lucky they're adding a whole bunch of new pets to keep me distracted or I may be forced to make a pointless post moaning about the good ol days and how Blizzard has become completely misguided and WoW has lost its sense of wonder.

I know things change and stuff, but I sort of chuckled as I remember blizzard's stance on a third spec...vehemently stating no, it'd never happen because they're already leary enough about having a dual one.

Well, talents then were *much* different from talents now.

Back then, having players abuse talent respec for gimmick fights was a problem, because not everyone had that freedom (tanks and healers who wanted a DPS spec had one of each, while DPSers could make an "AoE" spec and a "single target" spec). Right now, it's almost expected to switch talents on a fight-by-fight basis.
When that day comes, seek all the light and wonder of this world, and fight.

I've no burning desire to add a holy string to my bow and I generally carry a stack of reagents to swap talents/glyphs on the fly.Only people I can see benefiting from this are priests who absolutely have to have both healing specs and still wanna solo stuff.

I'm pretty much with ya on that Ulushnar. I have no desire for a holy spec and it's not that hard to just swap a few talents/glyphs.

Maybe the third spec is intended only for druids.

Or maybe it might be extremely expensive to buy.

Yeah, the old argument against tri-spec (that it makes people switch around too much from fight to fight) is kinda dead with the new talent system where you are totally expected to switch around talents and glyphs from fight to fight.

TBH I think they should take it one step further and allow unlimited number of different specs at a time, but each extra "slot" costs an exponentially increasing amount of gold to unlock. (So something like 50g first, 250g second, 1250g third and so on, or 50g/1000g/20000g if you want most chars to stay at 3.)

Another idea would have been to make *spec change* available on the fly as well, but with glyphs and talents remaining unmodified (i.e. you have to change all the talents and glyphs you want to change as well).

With something like that, there would be no point in dual/triple/omni spec anyway.

As a LFR only DPS warrior I welcome the changes, both roll as whatever spec and tri spec. At my gear level (low) Arms is the highest DPS spec, but I will require 1H weapons for SMF later on (which don't drop for Arms). Currently in LFR I seem to be waiting around for tanks for the trash, so a Prot spec would be useful.

Play as Arms (1), Fury for rolls (2), Prot for trash when needed (3).

Yeah, but in the next patch you'll be able to queue as one spec and roll for loot as another. Problem solved.

I don't think anyone's really complaining, just failing to see a *need* outside of a few specific instances, like the one you mentioned.

I dont think I was complaining about it, just merely noting I have no need for it. =P
