Mental Quickness and Static Shock have switched positions in the talent tree. Do we get free respecs if it means our tree is thrown off? As I look at it, it may mean I don't have the points needed for the rest of the tree if MQ is suddenly deper into the tree.Sad to hear about the bear... small polar bear is an excellent Draenei mount as you are not hindered by low doors

I also was wondering if shamans are getting a talent refund, given the point changes. When the balance tree was redone for druids, they got a talent refund, and it was mentioned in the patch notes, which it is not currently for shamans.

Typical Blizzard logic is that if the talent tree -LOSES- talent points, such that it can cause things like "having the 51-point talent without 50 points in the tree", a refund is granted.Talent swaps, even those from one tree to another, do not necessitate a refund. A past example, namely highlighting my little exception there, is that Warriors had Death Wish and Sweeping Strikes swapped with no talent refund.

Good to see the precedent. I'm just wondering on how my talent tree will look once the switching takes place. I am very happy with my 18/53/0 and will be pissed if I lose something because of this switch

well since the elemental tree is getting a brand new talent, Shamanism, and having the points reduced for another talent I would say that a point refund is a necessity, which is what makes me wonder why it's not in the patch notes

Yeah. Looks like I won't be affected by lost talents through the shift as I seem to have enough points in earlier tiers that I can still keep my spec

If we don't get a refund the day of, wait a day or two. I don't remember the patch, but we had some changes with no refund till the day after for one of the patches
