    The Spec Name Revamp Game

    Ok, so it isn't really a game, but still perhaps fun.

    Once I learned about the monk, I was very excited. I was even more excited to hear the spec names. They could have gone with generic names like Protection and Restoration for the tanking and healing trees, but they chose to give them names with a bit more character and flavor related to their lore. I have always thought that it would be neat to have all spec names be more unique and lore related. So take the class you play and rename their specs to make them more interesting. Obviously some of the spec names are fine, no need to change it drastically or at all if you think its great the way it is, but perhaps tweak them a bit if you think it would be beneficial. Remember in this hypothetical situation you aren't changing anything about gameplay, you are only changing the name of the specs.

    I'll start: I play a shaman. Instead of Elemental/Restoration/Enhancement, I would name the specs Elementalist/Hydromancer/Augmenter (not totally sold on this one, enhancement seems to be harder to think of names for).

    Your turn! If you could alter the spec names of your class, would you? If you would, what would you change them to?

    If you dislike where WoW is headed in your mind, quit. Really. Sitting around complaining about "promises" that may or may not have been made isn't doing anything to help your cause. It's just making you look more and more like the constantly complaining and perpetually offended.

    Thinking I'm not being creative? Play a rogue and all 3 specs are the same except for a lvl 80 CD

    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.
