Yesterday brought us the 3.1.1 patch and with it a spec reset. I can only guess that this was to help clear out some of the disappearing talent issues players had been having. Always in the past a free respec was a welcome thing. However in the world of dual speccing this turns out to be a pain in the ass.
I spent a good chunk of my evening reapplying 2 specs each for 3 different characters, for a total of 6 rapid fire respecs. Luckily for me I had all of my specs saved in my email box. Inside of gmail I have a label called “Notes to Myself” which I use to email things I might find useful later. Habitually this has been the storage bin for all my spec ideas.
The only thing that kept me from pulling my hair out is that Talented has been fixed to apply imports from WoWhead. So For the most part I could just cut and paste my spec urls into the Talented UI and then hit apply. Granted in the case of my Boomkin spec this caused me to reapply the spec I had missing typhoon. I had a “where the hell is typhoon” while in the middle of fighting a mob, only to remember that my earlier spec design had starfall not typhoon.
