Dual Spec.

I just got done reading the Article about the new ranked warzones, and I have to say, I'm pretty excited. For the first 4 months of this games release I was hardcore into PvP, but as time went on, I grew tired of it and stared the PvE gear grind. I've had a LOT of fun with PvE over the last couple months, gathering my Rakata gear and running HM's and Ops, but I think I would like to start doing PvP again for numberous reasons, and the Ranked PvP articleI read made me for sure want to get into PvP again.

The only thing holding me back is this... I Have my toons spec for PvE just where I want it, and I know i could take a screen shot of my spec or just memorize it, but I would love to have a dual spec option so I could save my PvE spec. I imagine that they could easily make dual spec a Legacy unlock or something, and that way I could be LFG for PvE and que for PvP, and constanly be active in the game, if I want to que for a Ranked PvP or PvP match (normal), while im trying to assemble an ops group or HM group the last thing i want to worry about is swtiching my spec at the vendor reset NPC from PvE to PvP, then when I'm done back to PvE...

Agreed?

Also I think, as a side note, that getting a DPS meter and/or a Threat meter would be excellent, they could always make it an option that you could enable in the interface editor, I had spent a lot of time setting up my Main toon, and would like to know what damage output I am getting from my different rotations. I do know that there are Mods that you can run, but why would I want to risk using something like those when they should be able to be easily intergrated.

TLDR; We need Dual Spec, or make dual spec a legacy unlock... And would like DPS/Threat meters... Please!!

Greetings,

Dual spec is a feature that is on many of our players' Wish Lists. Here's what Lead Game Designer Daniel Erickson had to say on that feature in one of our Community Q&As:


Quote:
Lovarboy: Will we get dual spec with Game Update 1.3?

Daniel: Unfortunately, no. Game Update 1.3 is being kept a bit leaner to get the Group Finder and the next stage of Legacy in the game as fast as possible. After that we’ll be returning to some bigger updates and we’re hoping dual spec makes it for the next one.


We hope this gives a little more insight about our plans for dual spec. Thank you for your suggestion!

I'm glad that this is being looked into and possibly being addressed, in the meantime its going to probably get a little frustrating switching spec's so much, and it will probably cause me to dedicate my toon to either PvE or PvP until a dual spec feature comes out.

Dual spec would be nice, could have a dps spec for soloing on my tanks and healers, or a pvp spec.

Exactly, then all you would have to do is just carry your gear around, i wouldnt even mind if you could change your spec remotely for a small amount of creds... but legacy unlock, or just intergrated all the time would be ideal.

Dual spec makes no sense.. What is the point of having a spec if you can change it at will.. Dual spec totally goes against the entire idea of having specs..

This game was specifically designed so you wouldn't need dual spec.. There is no such thing as a PVP spec in this game.. It is the recycled players from WOW that are used to the WOW way of doing things that are convinced that we need a dual spec.. People can PVP in their normal PVE specs.. The game is designed for it..

The system we have now is just there to allow to try new specs or fix mistakes.. Not change specs as you change activities..

I realize that dual speccing is going to be added.. But it doesn't only make sense..

LOL, you must be trolling. PVP has different specs than PVE. Look at your trees and notice the differences. As a Sorc healer there are about 4-5 points I would swtch around for PVP that would be totally worthless in PVE. Just because you don't like to PVP and PVE doesn't mean the majority of us don't.
