I really hope they do introduce Tri-specs, and soon. As a paladin, I still find myself respeccing every week for PvP or something different.

I think pure classes would cry.

tri-spec ... really...
5-05-2009 @ 11:20AM
I have to agree with what he said, tri-spec is... really just too much. I'm happy with dual spec, at least I don't have to respec now just to _farm_.

I don't know...I still sort of feel like I'm cheating by having *2* specs. :)Maybe it's harder on a Pally, but believe me dual spec was a huge benefit to me as a warrior so I can at least partly understand.

Did u not read the article. There will be NO tri specs in the foreseeable future (admittedly that could change next week - but i doubt it).

I'd also like to purchase more specs, maybe a third or fourth. I'm sure it'll happen eventually. I'm still having to respec mid-raid, and it's annoying and time consuming.

I don't....Look and think about what he said. He's saying that if they were to do that you would lose part of the appeal of the game. There would be almost no point to having separate spec trees, or even different talents within those trees.The only way I could see them expanding the number of specs you can have would be if they added more trees and more talents, but even there, you run the risk of making everything the exact same, and that would breach that integrity thing he was talking about. You are supposed to adapt to the situation and if you find yourself respeccing constantly still, you should consider looking at the specs you are using, especially as a pally. If you can't successfully PvP as a Holy Pally and run raids as either a Prot or even as a Ret/Holy pally, then that is on you and a failure on your part to handle yourclass. Or, perhaps you are trying to appease everyone by being everything, either way, do not put that on the developers, because there are plenty of people who are doing just fine with two specs. And there are plenty of us who don't WANT three specs because we realize that you would lose the individuality of the classes and even between two given players of the same classes.

All I have to say to Vehx is pick a spec and stick with it, stop being everyone's lil B*&^#$ and respecing for them! "Oh, we need a healer - I will respec, Oh we need a tank - I will respec, Oh we need you to be DPS - I will respec. Paladins just need to settle on one or two specs and just be done with it. I feel comfortable saying that b/c I have a ret pally in mid outlands, and so many times I see "well if the stupid ret just went holy we would have a healer!" and I prompty reply the "stupid ret" will go holy, but for 100g. I dont enjoy healing on my pally: if I wanted to heal, I would go play my priest. Dual specs is perfect for that reason: at lvl 80 I plan to go ret, but I will make a healing set for when I absolutely need to heal. If they need a tank, they can get my warrior, or some other tank: end of story. You shouldnt be forced into doing something you dont want to do in this game, and I see alot of paladins that feel like they are forced into picking up offspec gear as they go (or in some cases 2 off sets of gear) and then expected to play that spec well.

I very much doubt we will ever see tri-specs simply because it would be dramatically more useful for paladins and druids than it would be for any other class. With dual specs, pretty much every class can benefit from it. Perhaps slightly less so for the pure dps classes but still, being able to bring two kinds of dps to a raid is useful for some min/maxing raid guilds. Tri-specs will not have the same, across the board, usefulness that we see with dual-spec. And as Tom intimated, they still want players to have to make some tough choices.

I could use tri-spec for PvE Tank, PvE DPS and PvP
5-05-2009 @ 12:31PM
I'd also like the bosses to just kind of fall over and drop all their loot without a fight. Boss fights are just way too tedious. It would also be cool if in arena battles, we just /rolled to decide who won instead of actually going through the hassle of fighting. ^sarcasm in case you didn't catch that... anyway, my point is:TRI SPECS? WHAT ARE YOU INSANE?
5-05-2009 @ 12:56PM
Well it looks like a lot of people don't share my opinion, and I'm getting flamed, but that's cool lol.I'm not saying I want tri-specs to make all my groups happy, but I just don't like to be tied down to a certain aspect of my class. For instance, I raid as holy, and ret on occasion too. I PvP as prot or holy, depending on whether I'm doing 2v2 or 3v3. That's four different specs right there, that I use on a constant basis.Yes, yes, I read the article and saw that they're not planning on impementing a third spec option in the forseeable future, but one can wish, can't he?

I just want "double-hairstyles". Surely Blizzard doesn't think I will heal with the same hairstyles I have while tanking, do they?

If you are having to constantly respec for raids with dual-speccing then you're doing something wrong and you certainly aren't doing your guild any favors by being at raids in sub-par gear. Let's face it, I doubt your guild is letting you roll on every piece of plate healing, tanking AND dps gear so 2 of your gear sets is (severely) lacking. So which combination of fail are you trying to pass off by constantly re-speccing?

I would use three specs on my druid. Right now I have a raid healing build as my main, and so I was very happy to get a second spec to let me solo my dailies fairly quickly as well as letting me DPS a bit when the extra healing isn't needed. I'm starting to get interested in PvP healing, though, and there's definitely some talents I'm missing out on with my PvE spec. Feel like I'm either going to have to keep respeccing my resto build or go back to soloing as resto, which is not fun.
