Timeless trinkets

Customer Support
Ok, my DISC priest used one of the new timeless isle 496 "Timeless Curio" (i think that was the name) and got the dps trinket and my ELEMENTAL shaman used the timeless curio and got a healing trinket............... are these glitched for casters or what?
The 496 tokens do not create best in slot for your class, it's kinda random based on if your character can use it.
Wrong. There is only ONE trinket per spec. Like the Darkmoon Faire trinkets. It happened to me as well and a GM wouldn't refund me.

You got your answer, if you don't like it, use the survey provided to give your feedback. The SFAs here cannot change anything, they don't have access to the same tools the GMs use.
I converted these on alts.

On a Balance Druid I got a Contemplation of Chi-Ji, my Shadow Priest received Yu'lon's Bite

So I have to think these items are not spec specific.

Rings I got both for my Balance druid, Amaranthine Signet Pious and Feverflare.
As a note, there has been a lot of reports about this on the Bug report forums.
The Timeless Curio is indeed Loot Spec specific (loot spec, not active spec, important difference), however, there is no garauntee that the trinket you're getting is the BEST choice of the available trinkets that your loot spec can use. While the contemplation has an on use for spirit, Boomkins, SPriests, and Elementalists DO use spirit for hit. Again, as I've said, its not optimal for your DPS spec, but it is usable as a DPS trinket. Int is still nice anyway you cross it.

I got both of the trinkets on my shadowpriest and they are both great for that spec.
There's less-than-optimal, and there's "useless" though, and an on-use spirit buff is pretty useless for a dps. I've seen quite a few complaints, and seen it myself, where healers aren't getting any gear with Spirit on it at all. Think the whole Timeless transform system is buggy. I've stopped transforming pieces until it's clarified as intended or a bug. New patch, new bugs, it happens.

BUT anyways, I did find this last post, in a thread about the trinket in the Bug forums, where someone posted that a GM confirmed that dps getting the Spirit-use trinket to be a bug:
http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/9947395071

So we'll see, and hope for a quick fix. :)
That's the thing though, is not usless. It does benefit the class/spec, even if not everyone needs the benefit it provides.

Under any other normal circumstance, I'd agree with you. I get RNG and "can be used" vs. "optimal", but dps only getting an on-use spirit buff trinket cannot be intended (and as it seems, isn't intended). Who ever needs a burst of +Hit? Sure ok, if someone isn't hit-capped yet, they'd miss less during those few seconds, but that's just not realistic intent. ;)
