Wow... are you guys honestly complaining about being able to change talents on the fly? You know if you need your scorch spam for one fight but not the next you are by no means obligated to switch out the talent for something else. And as its been said in many boards and by the devs themselves most of the talent choices are utility/flavor talents and not straight up dps increases. Sure maybe you can spend a few hours using sims to find out that talent A will wind up giving you 5000 extra damage overall than talent B by the end of the fight, but if you're already playing like that then there's no difference to how it is now. Some talents in the "cookie cutter" builds are not of any use at all during some fights, while others not in the build are highly useful. Do you run to a trainer to respec in and out of improved counter spell for fights with interupts and others without? Do you put points into your improved AE for AoE fights and hearth away for the next fight that's single target? I don't mean to be a dick but you seem to be complaining for the sake of complaining with no real foundation for your argument aside from change being scary. I personally like the idea that I can jump into a CoC talent for fights that requires frequent slows on multiple adds and RoF on fights that need a less frequent snare on multiple adds. I also like that each tier focuses on different mechanic aspects and no matter which talent I choose I can breath easy knowing that my damage won't suffer from not choosing the "optimal" talent for said fight being that the "sub-optimal" choice won't result in an insane decrease in dps like some choices we have do now. I also like that if I'm raiding with stubborn people that need that extra 2k overall damage I won't have to wait 20 minutes for them to hearth out, run back, then reallocate 40 talents for one fight. It hasn't happened yet, but apparently, given the complaining I see here, some people will do this if all of their abilities are not baselined into their specialization with no option to change it.~sigh~
