Actually, the dual talent distribution for World of Warcraft only came with the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. In Vanilla WoW and The Burning Crusade, players had to kill every time they wanted to use a different talent distribution. Now the community is discussing whether Blizzard should provide this comfort improvement in TBC Classic. What do you think?
When it came to realizing WoW Classic, one could repeatedly read #nochanges in discussions, i.e. the wish that the new vanilla edition should come as close as possible to the original. In the meantime we have reached the final phase 6 of WoW Classic and can state that it was partly very good of the developers not always to strictly adhere to the #nochanges request.
Here some examples: Hotfix for Black Lotus for more spawn locations and more frequent spawn times. Spell batching was actually only adapted by the developers in 2014 in the original WoW. In the Classic Cosmos, however, the changes are already being tested on the PTR.
In the course of Classic there have been some surprising but useful class changes for hunters or the improved weapon totems of shamans.
The #nochanges discussion will remain relevant with TBC Classic. One point is already being discussed lively, although we feel that many of the commenting players would actually be in favor of a change here: It is about the dual talent distribution, which was actually only introduced with the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. In other words: You can save two talent distributions and switch back and forth between them without having to pay the (increasing) costs for reskilling each time.
cantbebanned explains in an extensive Reddit post why he is in favor of introducing the “Dual Spec”:
In TBC Classic, more players will want to do both PvE (raids and dungeons) and PvP (arena and battlefields (good entry-level equipment for PvE too)). The “Dual Spec” makes this possible. Without the convenience function, players will have to constantly check when it is worth killing for PvP between raid dates (or vice versa).
Thanks to the “Dual Spec” in TBC Classic, the chances increase that your fellow players in PuG raid and dungeon runs use a meaningful talent distribution and not their standard PvP spec for arenas and battlefields.

The increased flexibility increases the chance of finding players around the clock for all types of content who also have a useful skill for them or can take on the role they are looking for.
There will be many players who do not have the gold in TBC Classic to put 50 gold into killing several times a week. They will then tackle certain areas of the game with inefficient skills or stay away from this content – which in case of doubt also affects the players negatively, who can kill at any time.
If you are enjoying World of Warcraft Classic, remember you can buy WoW Classic Gold in GoldPiles.
