The Nostalgic first installment in the World of Warcraft, The Burning Crusade definitely brings back a lot of memories.
One of the confusing elements in this game is the Respec. The ability to reallocate the distribution of skill points on a character’s skill tree in order to change their specialization proves to be very useful.
With that said, how much does TBC Respec cost?
TBC Respec will cost you 1 Gold (g) for the first time you unlearn your talents, the second would cost you 5g and then it is raised by 5g everytime you respec afterwards. So 1g, 5g, 10g,15g,20g, and so on.
The cost is then capped at 50g and once you reach that price point it will stay that way until after a month.
Every month unlearning your talents will be 5g cheaper until it stops at 10g. Respeccing is relatively cheap in TBC because players can easily farm gold.
They only need about 100g per week if they want to PvP and Raid. Long story short, TBC respec cost is not constant but even at its peak it’s not that expensive for players and it is cheap at 10g later on.
How to respec in TBC?
With Shattrath being the new main city in The Burning Crusade, this will be where max level players will be hanging out.
However, there is not a single class trainer in this city so you can not respec here. So where and how do you do it?
If you are an Alliance Shaman you would have to go back to Exodar, Stormwind, or Ironforge and visit the trainers there.
On the other hand, Paladins from the Horde faction will have to travel back to Silvermoon City, Orgrimmar, or the Undercity and talk to a guard to get their maps marked on where they should go.
In classic, respeccing was way more expensive as it never went down. It’s the same story from your first time unlearning your talent up where the cost rises 50g every time you do it.
But the difference is it stays in 50g and doesn’t go down at all.
So players were ripped off of their gold in classic.
All of this trouble with respeccing and resetting talent points would be reduced if Blizzard introduced Dual Specs into TBC.
For those of you that don’t know, Dual Specs is a feature first introduced in the Wrath Of Lich King and it is incredible.
Basically it allows you to have two different specs on your character and be able to switch between them anytime without having to go through the trouble of going to a trainer and paying your hard-earned gold just to get respec.
If this feature is implemented in TBC, it would definitely be great news to the players and this is what the community has been asking for for a long time now.
So may the Blizzard Gods bestow upon us the Dual Specs holy grail.
What are the benefits of Dual Specs in TBC?
Overall, players would be spending more time actually enjoying the game and PvP and raids.
With Dual Specs you won’t be experiencing the pressure of having to respec multiple times a week every time you go PvP.
With this feature you would spend less time in the LFG channel.
You would also have two sets of gear to improve. So it gives players a better and more convenient experience.
Being able to use Dual Specs or change specs in PvP is an amazing feature but allowing players to do that during a raid can pose quite a problem.
But having to respec multiple times a week seems much more of a hassle for everyone.
So disabling Dual Specs before a raid and making it something hard to get where players would have to grind for it would balance out the game while at the same time opening new doors for all players.
With that in mind, let us hope that Blizzard would listen to the players’ voices and introduce this awesome feature.
But for now, let us keep grinding and earn that respec.
