    Respeccing to remain broken till "probably next month"

    EDIT: Just incase anyone was wondering, I'm not complaining. Mearly reporting on a topic that many people are wondering about and providing a source.

    Don't know if anyone posted this, the search forum ability seems to be broken for me at the moment... but this is from the beta servers...

    It's annoying, but it's not a big deal...we have dual spec, most people won't be testing all 3 specs, and you can always re-copy your character or a pre-made one, and pronto, you can play the third spec.

    Ok ok this is way beyond me! how dare they let something broken on a BETA. How could they? They're developing stuff and it's broken even though it's the 1st time it hits public test servers! Oh my god! I'm unsuscribing from Annual Pass and I am closing my account at this very moment!

    More seriously though, it's probably because the team have so many things to manage that they must put their resources somewhere else. Respec isn't as badly needed, even more since most of the 85+ stuff isn't in.

    Are you just waiting to pounce on people over anything they say to cry at them about complaining? This guy wasn't even complaining, he was simply INFORMING us of something which was said. Calm down please and stop defending the beta over the slightest comments. We know it's beta and what to expect...sheesh.

    OP, thanks for the post, good to have an idea when it's being fixed.

    You're an idiot, all the guy did was report on something that actually many people were wondering, hope it made you feel like a big man.

    It's exactly why I posted my 2nd paragraph. Learn to laugh >.> Don't forget that it was a blue post, not ghostcrawler himself, so everything must be taken with a grain of salt.

    Well, TBH, with the amount of hating and complaints this very forum has, it's not that strange to overreact when bad news appear.
    English is not my first language, feel free to correct any mistake I may make.

    Technically beta is intended to fix things, not break them. :P

    and to all of the haters in this thread, if you cant see the sarcasm literally DRIPPING off this post you need to get a funny bone injection.

    OT: meh...I looked the specs up online and planned mine out from the word go..just a point of clarification, if they monkey with the talents were refunded the points and have to respend like on live right?
    Not flying my Sig because somebody got butthurt because I posted a question that they didn't like in they're little pet post and sicked ScrapBot on me :P

    I think it's good to inform others, for some things "learning by doing" isn't always a good option.
    Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
    Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.


    Never assume an ogre's stupid, that's when they'll get you.

    I copied my main over twice. It is not like I planned to test all the classes anyways.

    Edit: Number one rule of PTR/Beta is don't blow all your copies off the bat.

    Betas are there so people can keep on repeating "beta = beta" until it goes live and then they can complain about how Blizzard didn't listen to any of their feedback to fix things that were broken in beta for a long time already. (See: Cataclysm).

    That's not what pronto means btw.

    Blizzard was nice enough to give a heads-up regarding this and a "possible" but no way a promise as to when it might get fixed.

    on the up side, the GM comment kinda gives u a clue how far ahead they are with in-house testing. which i always assumed was weeks/months ahead of what beta realms actually have on them. still puzzles the crap outta me how things get broke from going from a "in-house" test environment to a "public" environment.
