If Blizzard are going to take this direction towards downranking, I'd rather just see new ranks of spells replace lower ranks completely, it'd cut down on spell book clutter at least.

Actually, Ed, there is now a option in the Interface option that hides every spell except your highest rank.

I was thinking the same thing.If they want to nip downranking just have a single entry in the spellbook per spell

That's great to know! Thanks for the information!

What's the point in even making it possible to show the lower ranks if they do less damage and cost more mana though? Warriors and Rogues already only have their max rank abilities in their spellbooks (IE it's physically impossible to use, say, Rank 3 Eviscerate if you'ev learned Rank 4) so it seems a little convoluted to implement this new system for other classes when there exists a perfectly workable system already implemented in the game.

@Mikebecause some lower ranks of spells will still be worth using the higher mana cost version.For instance, please don't 20 second banish a demon that we don't been banished for 20 seconds. Use a low-ranked one so we're not all sitting around, pointlessly swinging at an immune mob.

I think that they should eliminate having to go to a trainer to get new ranks of old spells. It's not that really exciting to get Rejuvenation (rank 14) anyway. Just make it so you have one Rejuvenation that shows up in your spell book and when you get level 74 (or whatever) it automatically heals for a new amount. Or they could even make it so it scales a little amount each level. Even having the lower ranks is completely pointless if they are going to cost more mana.It's not that really exciting to get Rejuvenation (rank 14) anyway. I remember when I first started playing WoW I always was pretty excited to go get my new spells, and then it seemed like I was getting robbed when I was just getting the same spell that did a marginal amount more damage or healing. It's just a big hassle without much point at this point to have to go all the way back to a trainer to learn a new rank when the old rank is worse then useless.

Before priest smite spec was made similarly obsolete I used rank 1 smite (0.5s cast) to pull mobs when I was leading an instance.
