Lore is “knowledge acquired through education or experience”. Typically gameplay in WoW suggests that as you level you acquire knowledge and training in the skills of your class - represented in part by talent points. As you level, presumably you will become familiar with your chosen talent spec - for instance, most people would probably agree that if I play a shadow priest to level 80, and then add a holy dual spec, I’m not instantly a healer just because I can press a button on the talent interface.Back in vanilla the design heavily discouraged switching talent specs by charging a hefty gold fee each re-spec - 5g growing to 50g (back in the day when gold was *much* harder to come by, and the road between Org and TB was uphill both ways). In 1.11, re-spec fees were lowered a bit via the ‘decaying’ cost over time. However, the increased ease of getting gold led to the point that late in TBC toons switched specs casually (even 50g was not much by then). Finally this was trivialized with dual specs, which put switching specs a click away - no need to even bother to visit a trainer.
