I don't think it is really accurate to call it a gold sink. It is a way to save money for people who find themselves respec'ing a lot. In that sense, it is Blizzard alleviating a financial burden on a lot of players and opening up more opportunities to play for these characters, be it switching from DPS to healing or tanking or to PvP specs.If you didn't already have this kind of financial burden, then I'm not entirely sure why one would complain. There are far more expensive ways to min/max for raiding than dropping some cash you you can switch to DPS when the fight only requires one instead of three tanks. If you're that concerned about raid performance, then dropping the 1,000 gold isn't going to seem prohibitive when you already did that and more in terms of crafted gear, enchants, consumables, and professions.That said, given that Blizzard knows how many times (and how much gold) you've spent respec'ing, I think that if you've crossed a certain threshold, it should be free.
