The last time I remember having actual interesting choices in mage talents was BC.PoM+AP+Pyro was still around with options to go either deep arcane or deep fire. Elemental specs for pve and pvp, Deep arcane +IV frostbolt builds for pve...Even then though, there were certain specs that were just better, and certain talents you 'had' to take depending on your tree.This new system, to me, gives the greatest flexibility we've seen in the game yet. You get everything you have to have, don't have to waste points on mandatory talents (about the most boring thing you can do), and actually get to make some decisions.I'd love a system where we had the size and scope of Wrath talent trees, with every point being a dynamic, exciting choice...but the balancing issues on that would be a nightmare. I think they can get there eventually, but for now, this will be a great, easier to balance start.Long story short, I'm really looking forward to this change.
