So finally the shadow priest can go holy and hit a few more raids. The holy pally can spec retibution and level and quest easier. Hunters and Warlocks can choose between doing damage one way, and doing damage another way…. Okay so not all classes benifit from the duel spec.
We have had duel spec now for a while. and it benifits some more then others. Even though I have to charaters that could benifit from duel spec I have found at the cost of pixilated gold that I do not.
When I log in as Hanhar I am a toon that pulls agro and does my best to keep everyone else from taking damage. I duel spec’d him. I tried Ret as it is closer to Prot and I could get away with some of the gear I had. But I was unable to get into the ret mode. and a healadin just does not work for me.
Sonied I could duel spec, but I heal with her. I am in a mind set that just does not play well with balancing damage to agro pull. and clothies are just to squishy.
Shermaan can, well he just does not have a lot of choice here.
The other problem I have with the duel spec is that sonied is a enchanter. Now there is less lickly a chance that she will get items to dis-enchant items, This leads to fewer mat’s for her to roll for at the end of a run. Don’t get me wrong if an item can be used it is better used then DE’d. How ever now it is more costly to level enchanting.
Duel spec is nice, I am not convinced that it was needed. I do not see the added balance to the game.
