New AoE spells is all fine and dandy, but blizzard stated that AoE fights would be fewer than in LK, and the focus on AoE would move more towards single/dual/triple target fights. Have anyone experienced this change in the beta instances? Will earthquake and whatever else we get to play with in cata be the new polymorph: Frogger spell? I looked forward to that one in cata, based on the many CC fights in TBC, but so far i have used it less times than even sentry totem (ok thats a lie, but you get the point :P)

The thing that I wonder is why is earthquake an elemental-only talent, and why is it a 31 point talent? It almost seems like it's much more useful as a pvp talent. Plus, it deals physical damage, which would be more in-line with enhancement. It just doesn't seem like the kind of spell that should be talented (it should be trainable, like consecration, death and decay, flamestrike, and other similar ground effect AoE's). And for a 31 point talent? I almost wonder if top end min-max builds will thumb their nose at that talent, as it won't do anything on single-target fights, and, as you mentioned, Blizz has stated AoE will be less important.Something just doesn't seem right here.
