"One way would simply to make healing changes that allowed healers to cope with a boss's switching to whoever had aggro."Whoa boy. That would be insanely unbalanced in pvp.I do think they could open up more classes to tanking. I've heard quite a few people say things like "if my mage could tank then I would." However, a dps spec would have to be sacrificed to make room for a tanking spec, which would inevitably lead to ragequits.Perhaps a way to circumvent the entire issue would be to introduce a fourth tree for every class in next expansion and simply ensure most of the new introductions are tanking trees for classes who have traditionally not tanked.

4th spec would be absolutely amazing. I would love to see a dedicated tanking tree for shaman, ranged dps spec for paladins, healing spec on DK or mage... This would, however, be very difficult for the development team. Essentially they would be introducing 3 new classes (10 classes now = 10 new trees/ 3 current trees per class= 3.3 new classes with a remainder of 1). If anyone recalls the shit storm that happened when DK's were released (and persisted all the way through WotLK), they will understand why this is unlikely. The DK problem wasn't even really resolved until Cata when blood was given the distinction of being the tanking spec, leaving frost and unholy the responsibility of dps. I love the idea though.Please Blizzard, give up all of your free time and give the people what they want 0.o

Does this mean warriors will then get a healing spec? Won't we have to give some class five specs, I mean if we give them tanking, then it stands to reason that every class should have healing as well........You people are ridiculous, just wait for Diablo 3 and play that. There you just do your own thing even when in group.
