You might have picked up that I've been struggling to decide on a spec for the last few... months. At the peak I started thinking "This is stupid. I have three roles and that doesn't even include the PvP versions. Why don't hybrids get triple-specs? Or 6 specs?" I was not alone in that line of thinking.
What is wrong with us? We get someone which is an improvement and we are annoyed that is isn't good enough? This is like getting two free ice cream cones; chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, pick two, and we're made that we don't get a third. There's a line between always wanting to improve one's situation and just being greedy.
On a related note, what is it with people complaining about the cost? 1000g is a lot. I'm not going to be one of that jerks that says "just got farm for a day." Farming isn't fun, just because it's not a lot of farming doesn't mean it's okay. But it's okay anyway. 1000g for incredible flexibility and very rapid savings depending on how much you respec. If you don't respec much, don't buy it. How can it be bad for us to gain options?
I'm having a blast with dual spec on my paladin. I used it at least 10 times yesterday in only a few hours. This doesn't mean that I have already paid of half the cost though. It does mean that I gained flexibility, I'd have not switched that many times so quickly, especially not while in the middle of an instance. The action bar switch is great. My only real gripe is with the mana drain. It's fine when I go to prot since the regen is pretty high now (I don't even have SA), but as ret it's a little annoying to start at zero. Ugh, here I am complaining that the awesome new things isn't awesome enough. What is wrong with people?
