Maybe I've missed something, but I haven't seen any indication of being able to change between your two specs on the fly, which would disallow most of this article.I don't think they'll allow people to change between specs on the fly (or if they do, it won't last very long before being changed). Doing such would create a situation where bringing hybrid classes would be required for ease of raiding. This would generate such a hue and cry from the classes unable to switch between healing/dps/tanking roles that the forum server would crash from all the QQ.

Even if I have to go back to town and do it this makes it easier. It saves the writing down the spec I set up the resetting of my bars...I only have one resto glyph so that's not a problem but for others..

You did miss something..They are giving Inscription an ability to allow people with the prof to summon (ala a summon portal for locks) a Lexus of Power, from there you can switch your specs. So its not on the fly per say, but there is a way to do it outside of a city.

Changing between specs will require the presence of a Lexicon of Power. Scribes are going to be given a new recipe to create a consumable that starts a ritual to summon a lexicon of power to your location. The item can be sold on the AH and used by anyone. The fact that it will be a ritual means that you'll need someone (the exact number hasn't been confirmed) to help you summon it.As far as the QQ about hybrids being taken over pure DPS classes, it's ridiculous. In any given raid, it's unlikely that you will need more than a few people (one or two for 10mans, maybe four or five in a 25man) to have a dual spec. There is no need to have every dps slot filled with hybrids, just like there is no need to have every dps slot filled with pure classes. A balance is key; there will always be spots for pure classes.
