the new talent system, once i started digging into it and looking at how it was laid out, was THE selling point for pandaria, for me.and then the other stuff as it was announced and discussed just got me more interested.i may never roll a panda(well, outside of 'totoro', just because i CAN do it to be fun).but i *REALLY* am looking forward to the fun stuff for DKs(who are going to be AoE monsters no matter which way you slice it.) and the shaman talents are fun and interesting.perfect, my two favorites are going to be VERY interesting to play. the fact that the talents are so varied, and all achieve really unique results, that makes them fun.like for a DK tank i could see taking blood boil spreads diseases over outbreak, since i AoE/disease tank ANYWAYS. of course i'm going to take runic corruption, hello 4 second refresh rate oh i'm going to love you so HARD. max talent? massive frost AoE sounds AWESOME for a tank, just as awesome as an AoE deathgrip(dammit greg you gave me such a HARD choice there). i like controlling fights. having a fire and forget AoE delayed-stun to punch during a trash pack pull? oh hell yes. being able to break the fight for a few seconds to heal back up is going to be VERY useful.but point being, the changes are only negative if you fear change.while there will be talents that might be better for certain encounters than others, i have a feeling that the talents will synergize with other classes talent choices in REALLY interesting(and possibly unexpected) ways that can negate the 'you need x, x, y, z, and q talents for this boss for max dps' syndrome.
