In response to Jhestor and jbodar...Though 1000g is cheaper than what people have been paying for constant respeccing, your responses completely dismiss the fact that paying this much for respecs is punishing in the first place. If it punished every character equally, it wouldn't be as bad, but it doesn't do that however.Half the classes have multiple roles and half of them don't. Anyone who is a healer class ends up paying A LOT more money to respec than anyone else. Trying to solo in any of the healing specs (and I've solo'd in all of them) is a joke. So wanting to do anything but solo (like PvP or raid), ends up costing these classes a boat load of dough. Meanwhile, classes like hunters and Warlocks only end up respeccing every time there's a patch or they want to fine tune something and pay exponentially less money than healer classes do.So with a dearth of healers and tanks throughout the servers, making the game less fun and enjoyable for everyone, they are going to brutalize people that actually want to try and solve this problem, by basically making them pay for another mount.This only highlights the ridiculously bad balance problems WoW has had to nth degree. Dual speccing was supposed to make things less punishing for multi-role classes, but is still going to make them spend more gold in the next year on speccing than non-multi-role classes will...Way to go Blizz...
