World of Warcraft Dual Talents Detailed

By far one of the more interesting updates coming to Blizzard's World of Warcraft, dual talent specialization has now been thoroughly outlined by Warcraft developers in an official question and answer session.

Set for inclusion in the next patch, dual talent speccing will allow players to easily switch between two separate talent specs, hotbar and glyph setups. Level 80 characters will be able to gain the ability by paying a one-time training fee.

Once trained, the talent specs can be freely switched between at any Lexicons of Power. The lexicons will be available in major cities, and inscribers will be able to create an item that summons one. A new "Gear Manager" will allow players to easily switch between sets of talent-matching items.

"We will be launching the feature with just two specs, but depending on how we feel it works out, we might consider additional specs in the future," added Warcraft senior designer Greg Street.
