@TiquRaiding and not raiding shouldn't make a difference here. If anything, not being a raider should make the options even more open to you, since you'll be completely free to pick whatever you want to pick without worrying about whether that playstyle will mesh with any particular encounter.Your talent choices with the new system are set up so that every choice you make will actually do something tangible and let you change the way you do whatever that tier is designed to address.I guess you could make a case for throwing random points wherever in the current talent system with the justification that you aren't raiding and thus it doesn't matter, but I've very rarely seen anyone do that in Cata and have it yield anything particularly fun and engaging. Because so many talents are directly tied to damage increases, there's not a lot of room for experimentation, and even if you tried to force points into unusual combinations you probably wouldn't see very much change in the way your character worked outside of the damage fluctuating in weird ways.With the current system, there's really only three "builds" you get for any particular spec - PvE-suitable, PvP-suitable, or "broken". The revamp just gives you most of the "required" abilities that you had to take anyways to keep yourself from being in the "broken" category, and leaves you with actual customization of how your character is going to play.
