If they want to let us REALLY spec the way we want to...What's with all the arrows on the talent trees that force us to fill up prerequisites? I can understand if to pick up Improved Smash Face you need to pick up the talent Smash Face...but look at the Affliction tree. We HAVE to take Unstable Affliction to let our Corruption crit, even if we may not particularly WANT it. (I personally wouldn't mind dropping it if the dualspec system came out and I had a questing spec and a dungeon spec). I can think of a half dozen other places where I'd like to put that point.

As an addition: I always figured that the end-tree talents were SUPPOSED to be spec-defining and that the real customization comes in when you're picking the rest of the talents, and can choose whether or not to pick up ones based on whether or not they help your particular playstyle. (Like I don't have Imp Howl of Terror because it has very little use in PvE, nor did I pick up Imp Drain Soul because the 15% mana isn't worth it to me versus where I put those other two points). What they should do is create more abilities for each tree that are useful if you like them, but not "class defining". I know any number of Affliction Warlocks who don't pick up Dark Pact. Most agree that it's overshadowed by Life Tap in the later game, and a pet's mana pool doesn't scale as well when you hit eighty versus when you're fourty. I personally keep it because in longer boss fights, being able to dip into my pet's pool helps keep the healer's work down.
