This week's Community Blog Topic is "Should all classes get a fourth spec?"
Our Scott Andrews recently gave his answer, saying no, but offering a radical option for Blizzard to take in the form of dual class dual spec. I'm a proponent of neither, but for the interest of discussion -- and to satisfy my whimsical needs -- I will list what fourth specs could be for most of the classes.
- Mages could have a melee DPS spec and be able to dual wield a staff and sword, just like Gandalf. Most of their spells, rather than working at range, would enhance the damage and capabilities of their weapons.
- Warlocks could get a heal spec in the form of sucking the life from mobs and spreading it around to one or more group members. And they could have a pet that helps heal as well. I know that most warlocks would prefer a tank spec, but I see the possibilities of both.
