Blizzard just announced on their forums, that starting next week’s reset, Soultwining Crescent and Death-Bound Shard, will grant conduits based on the player’s specialization:

Hello everyone 
You bring up a valid point about the conduit upgrade items not being specialization specific. It can be frustrating when you get a conduit for a spec that you may never use.
To address this, we’re working on a change that will go live with next week’s restarts that will allow Soultwining Crescent and Death-Bound Shard to grant conduits based on your current specialization instead of by class. In order to receive the conduits of the spec of your preference, you will need to switch your specialization fully, changing Loot Specialization won’t work.
In addition to this change, we’re increasing the drop rate of Death-Bound Shard when completing Adamant Vaults in Torghast, Tower of the Damned.
Thank you for your feedback!

Since the introduction of the conduit system in 9.0, upgrading conduits has been a source of frustration for many players. Some specializations and classes benefit greatly from upgrading their conduits. However, it was possible for players to get the desired conduits upgraded last, with the current system.

This is a welcome change, and while players won’t be able to choose specific conduits to upgrade, this will reduce the amount of time needed to upgrade specialization specific conduits.
