I'm trying to stay completely on the fence on these talents, but so far they're just not doing it for me. Maybe it's just my old-timer "Back in my day" attitude shining through but talents were always one of those things that I really looked forward to. I used to have my next 10 or so talents picked out, and love going through the trees thinking about how much I wanted a certain one. I'm not going to give up on them, and am looking forward to the beta when we can see how it all really plays out, maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised. Maybe they'll make a new ability for enhancement at level 90 so cool that I won't care at all about talents (Come on Wind Elemental!).All I know for certain is that I hate playing the waiting game.Also this new expansion would be a great time to bring back cleansing totem. I miss it so.

Personally I really don't mind the change, you say you had 'the next 10' planned out but personally for me it was generally "where will I have to stick these 10 effing points to get to the next decent talent I want" kind of deal. This just cuts the middleman really for me.I really love the concept of these new talents, make them all along a similar theme and you will actually have choice. Now a lot of people have been saying "there'll still be cookie cutter specs" but I really think this is a half truth, i.e. there will not be 1 spec for almost every situation, I really think you'll be swapping talents between bosses in a raid, but for most people of a spec those talents will be the same per boss.I do hope some of the talents are made more interesting though, but we'll wait and see.and cleansing totem will probably never return, it was crazily good in a lot of places that it was overpowered.

I know cleansing totem is probably gone for good, but the second I stop believing that's when it's truly dead and buried. I don't want to go there yet...I'll keep on hoping that "Cataclysm was merely a setback!"

As an Enhancement Shaman PVE player, the talents really feel useless or that they'd be more useful to other specs. Except for the ones at level 75, everything else feels that we were completely forgotten, that nothing really fits in the spec and that it really wont make much difference in whatever we choose. I really dont like this new talent system. It's bad enough that we always end up feeling like we're getting the Hunter Left Overs in Gear. Hope they change them to something more useful to Enhancement.
