In line of recent question then, do you think we'll ever see hero "specs" instead of classes and if so which would be the most difficult to balance?

I don't think we will ever see a "hero class" again. With the level cap pushing to 100 though, there may be something where you can have a 2nd toon (one other than a DK) start at level 55 or 65- whatever level they see fit. Maybe in the expac after MoP.

I think allowing access to a new spec for a class that you can only get to after say, playing to max or something, like a melee mage spell blade or something would be nifty as heck. It may even be easier to balance than DK's were when they were trying hard to make them be viable tanks/dps in all specs. They'd likely have to release it for all of the classes at once though...you can't really get away with your new 'hero spec' being one class only or you'll have cries of favoritism.The simplification of the talents will likely make balancing easier on the devs overall once we get into Mists (fewer numbers to tweak and interactions to consider) so there'd be no way to really say what would be hardest to balance. But with druids effectively getting a fourth 'spec', that kinda opens the doors to other possibilities with the established classes that could really shake up the game and make it interesting, an expac or two down the road.

Dont qoute me on this but i pretty blizz once said something along the lines of, once you hit max level you could chose a spec branch that would tweak your character to play differently . E.G prot pally branches off to dealing heavy ao damage style of play or branches off to a more damage mitigation style of play. I think there was talk of something like that but im not sure

@TechnoYeah. That was path of titans. It was scrapped before it even got to beta ;)
