I was just out questing in my ret spec, ran across a world quest and did it. Before I started, I made sure to set my loot spec to holy since I need a holy trinket.

When it was done I got an 810 ret trinket instead.

Intended? I hope not. Questing as a healer is already painful, and being forced to do world quests as a healer when you have a dps/tank spec available makes little sense.

Rewards from world quests should not change based on your spec. We don't want you to feel like you need to look at the map to figure out what you want, respec, then look at the map again to see what changed.

So you want us to feel like we need to look at the map to figure that out, respec, log out and log in again, then look at the map again to see what changed? Because thats how it currently works.

If a world quest reward is changing its state while active for your character in any way other than item level going up, it is a bug. Please let us know which quests you're seeing this behavior on.
edit: I found some in Suramar that were misbehaving; this will be fixed in the near future.
