Blizzard already went a long way to solving this issue by not giving many options for different slots. You don't need to have different gearsets when item level is the most powerful stat on a piece of gear and there is only one item for a particular slot. It may not have the perfect blend of stats, but as long as it's better than the previous tier, it's what you use.It's very rare you have to change enchants when switching from one dps role to another dps role. There simply aren't a lot of options to choose from. Regemming and reforging will both be necessary. You can save money by prospecting/transmuting/cutting your gems yourself or on alts. Also, try to spread your purchases over a week or two so you don't spike the market. No way to mitigate the reforging costs.I don't particularly having to switch specs either. It can take me several hours of downtime properly altering my gear and working the training dummy over before I'm ready to step into a raid in the new spec (and that time again to switch back). But this is only for specific progression content that we struggle over. That's when you have to look for every trick and advantage you can get.

Or we can make secondary stats even MORE irrelevant, as they TRIED to do at the start of Cata.Lemme tell ya: There's going to be a rift of DPS between a fury warrior stacking haste and a fury warrior stacking crit. I coulda sworn that's what they were trying to avoid by making primary stats more valuable...

Haste is in fact stronger than mastery for SMF warriors. TG and arms don't want haste, though. Still, there's no reason to have both SMF and TG specs, and have to gear them separately.
