2 of the 3 warrior level 90 abilities are existing abilities. All 3 of the rogue ones are recycled. This is just off the top of my head, there may be more.

other classes may have room for complaints, but mages got pretty much nothing in that first pass of talent trees. The polymorph thing was the only thing that was new/different. Pretty sure every class got more than just one new thing in their entire trees. Mages are getting a lot of things taken away and then given back, more than most (except for feral druids who are getting a lot taken away).

Yeah I think the only other new thing we got was Frostjaw in the 15 tier.And, I will say that the issue for mages is particularly egregious when you consider that our level 85 'new' spell was a level 60 shaman spell. I would say the last truly cool new toy we got was Mirror Images.

I wouldn't say that aggro. Combustion, frostfirebolt, deep freeze, permanent water elemental, the thing where the freeze spell gives you 2 stacks of FoF, scorch on the move and free scorch, a very fun and engaging fire aoe rotation (where before mages would just spam blizzard or lay down 3 layers of flamestrike then blizzard). Most of these changes were in 3.01 or 4.01, so it wasn't necessarily the xpac but the change in the game itself. You could argue mages didn't get anything interesting from 81-85, and I would agree, but mages in general have gotten a lot of fun toys over the past couple of years.
