Regarding the inventory space issue, I see the current limit of 100 items as being a huge problem if we now have the potential for 4 or 5 different specs. The purpose of having different specs isn't just to have different abilities and attacks. You have to change your gear, enchantments, and gems to make the specs worthwhile. There is no possible way 4-5 specs can be used effectively with the current 100 inventory limit. I would conservatively say that limit needs to be doubled at the very least. Whatever the technical implications, you managed it before going from 50 to 100. We have been asking for this change for at least a year now, if not more. Ignoring this change while adding so many new spec options would just handcuff the players who want to make use of those specs. That would be a major fail.

Anything equipped on any of your spec don't use inventory space...

See, I thought the same thing. But I tested it a couple weeks ago, and when I swapped specs, my inventory count changed. I tested it again, and my inventory count changed by 1 when I changed specs. Maybe this is due to a 2H vs. 1H spec. But if what you say is true, I should see no change regardless of whether or not my off hand is empty.

Doc, depends on which gems you're equipping I think. I have 17ish t6 haste gems, and if I accidentally equip the same gem on each spec, my inventory overflows (Since the other half aren't being used). So I end up equipping half on my spec 1 and the other half on spec 2.

You'll have your current 2 specs, plus a further pvp-only spec, with the option to buy a further spec, presumably for GS.

They are currently priced at 90 GS, but like anything I post here before it's release, that's subject to change.
