WoW senior game designer Greg Street has detailed the game’s upcoming dual talent system in a Q&A over on the MMO’s official site.
Only two specs will be available at launch and will allow players to switch between customizations easier. One can be for healing and the other damage, or if you prefer, one for raiding and one for PvP.
To apply these specs to your character, you will have to visit your NPC class trainer and pay a one-time fee — after which you can switch between them for free at any Lexicon of Power.
The update’s expected in the next patch.
The option will only be available for level 80s at first, as Blizzard didn’t want lower levels to get bogged down with the “extra complexity” of the changes while still learning the game. However, Street did point out that if the feature proves to be popular, they may consider expanding it to everyone.

Blizzard wants a few dedicated and skilled combatants to enter the new World of Warcraft Global Arena Tournament, where your team can both renown and cash prizes.
According to the official WoW site, players will “battle on special Tournament realms purely dedicated to the competitive format of 3v3 Arena matches”.
The characters fighting it out will be newly created level 80s, and the teams that qualify will battle in an invitational ladder to get a chance at the finals.
Registration and all the other details through this link.
While you are here though, read on through the jump a list of patch notes for the surprise patch that Blizzard released for WoW earlier this afternoon. No, it’s not the BIG one, sorry.
Following the usual maintenance today, patch 3.0.9 should be going live on all servers, but if you want to download the patch manually, click here.
