I don't seem to be able to get the talent tree to load (just goes to the Wowtal website and asks me to pick a class - this may just be me!) so I'm not sure if I'm missing something important, but is Ancestral Swiftness really out of our reach at the moment? When I was experimenting with 4.0.1 talent builds I skipped over Convection, Elemental Warding (though not sure about this one, it's in a couple of other builds I've tried) and Reverberation, with only one point in Earth's Grasp. If I then go on to take Elemental Weapons and Improved Shields, I have a point left. That point could go into Ancestral Swiftness if I wanted it to, which is still a 7% speed increase if that's what I'm desperate for. Although that would be slightly less than enchanting for speed, is this point definitely not worth it at this time? I'll be mourning the loss of my instant ghost wolf either way for now, but if you're not maxing out Earth's Grasp (though I expect I will end up doing this) is there nothing to be gained from Ancestral Swiftness or a point in Totemic Reach?

Well you can put points in the wowtal tree all the way to level 85, however be sure to check the 'level required' when you're putting points in - we only have 36 points at level 80 (and yes I checked on PTR), and you cannot activate any points in the Enhancement tree until you have put 31 points in the Elemental tree. You need 6 points in enhancement to reach Ancestral Swiftness or Totemic Reach as elemental. So you need to be level 81 to have 37 points and be able to drop a point in AS or TR.

I've also fixed the wowtal links so that they go to the wowhead versions, so they should work correctly now.

Yeah, Elemental and Resto Shaman are unfortunately deprived of the instant Ghost Wolf until level 82 now, which is really unfortunate. Only the Enhancement Shaman will be able to use it for leveling and questing (where it's massively useful) and have it available for the first 5 mans and any Wrath raiding.
