I think it should be something like an out-of-combat 30-second cast, similar to some crafting casts. I think the cast time should be sufficient, using consumables to change spec is absurd. No groups to help you change your spec either, that's garbage. Also, preventing you from changing specs inside a bg as they discussed earlier is a good idea.One possible scenario:I want to do some AV's on my pally, so I go in as ret. Then I want to switch to WSG, so when I'm done with my AV I do my 30-second respec cast to switch to holy, and go into WSG. When I'm done with WSG, I decide to go do a heroic instance. I switch to prot with my 30-second cast and away I go. If they want to implement a cooldown, maybe something like 10 minutes would be fine with me...it doesn't need to be any more than that imo.Seems reasonable to me. Thoughts?

I had similar thoughts here as well. Obviously there has to be some sort of limiting factors to it... you can't make it an instant cast spell that works everywhere and while in combat. This is the list I think would be useful. * Cooldown. Either set time such as one or two hours. OR Progressive cooldown over a rolling 24 or 48 hour period. ie. 1st Switch = 1 Hour CD. 2nd = 2 hour CD. 3rd = 4 hour CD, etc.* Reagent - Tie the cooldown to the use of a consumable reagent that gives a debuff when eaten. Debuff is that you can't use the reagent again for X length of time.* May only consume reagent in a city or an Inn. (Possibly require a person be in a rested state in order to respec.)* Reagent must be consumed like foods or drinks... must sit for 30 seconds.* Class specific quest, gaining some sort of class mastery title making you a sort of assistant trainer... unable to train others, but able to retrain yourself. (This one is a little far fetched but allows for an additional achievement, haha.)Anyway, these are just a few ideas.
