Druid and Rogue talent calculators updated

Blizzard has updated the druid and rogue talent calculators to reflect the changes in today's patch.

To recap talent changes for each class from earlier today:

Druids:

  • "Feline Swiftness" has been renamed "Feral Swiftness". The dodge % increase now also applies to Bear and Dire Bear Forms.
  • "Improved Moonfire" has been reduced to 2 ranks, for a 5/10% bonus.
  • "Insect Swarm" has had its damage on all ranks increased. The mana cost of ranks 1 and 3 has been increased. The mana cost of ranks 4,5 and 6 has been decreased.
  • "Nurturing Instinct" now grants its benefit at all times, but the bonus has been reduced to 25/50% of Strength.
  • "Improved Starfire" has been renamed to "Celestial Focus" and now also increases the chance to resist casting pushback when casting Wrath by 25/50/70%.
  • "Blood Frenzy" benefits have merged with "Primal Fury".
  • "Improved Leader of the Pack" has been reduced to 2 ranks for 2/4% total health healed.

Rogues:

  • "Evasion" (Rank 2) now reduces the chance that ranged attacks will hit the Rogue by 25%, reduced from 50%. It is now available at level 50.
  • The "Cloak of Shadows" cooldown has been reduced to 1 min, from 2 min. Now a trainable ability at level 66.
  • "Shadowstep" (New Subtlety Talent) attempts to step through the shadows and reappear behind your enemy. Your next "Ambush", "Backstab" or "Garrote" ability is increased by 20% and lasts 10 sec. This is only usable while stealthed.
  • "Premeditation" (Subtlety Talent) has had its range increased to 30 yards.
  • "Preparation" now only resets the cooldown of the "Evasion", "Sprint", "Vanish", "Cold Blood", "Adrenaline Rush" and "Premeditation" abilities.
  • Each rank of "Weapon Expertise"now provides 5 weapon skill.
  • "Surprise Attacks" now increases the damage from "Sinister Strike", "Backstab", "Shiv" and "Gouge" by 10% instead of 8%.

You can find the rogue talents here and the druid talents here.

Spend your points wisely, and let me know how I should spec my rogue now that things have changed :)
