No matter how awesome the talents get to be the fact is that blizz has to balance 11 classes now. I fear that druids will become the 'rogues' next expansion since monks are going to blow them out of the water. I totally disagree with MoP talent trees. Cookie-cutter builds will always exist.

You may disagree with the decision to go from 41 talents to 6 talents, the fact is, this makes decisions more interesting. You were already going to get those base talents, because that's what EJ or WI told you to do. That's not fun.Getting a 5% increase to a damage/healing ability was never fun for me. I lived for those 4-5 talent choices that actually made a difference. I look forward to the Mists change of talents.

I completely agree Andras. No matter how hard they try there will ALWAYS be cookie-cutter builds. These changes do nothing to eliminate them. The min-maxers at EJ will find the best talents and everyone else will follow suit. They might as well eliminate talents all together and just give you a set build cuz this is an exercise in futility.

How can the min-maxers "find the best build" when several tiers of talents don't even *affect* dps? The cookie-cutter talents are already in the spec as abilities you automatically learn. Yes, each class has at least one tier of talents where one is "best" for a certain spec, but it's nowhere near as black-and-white as it is today.When you have three different kinds of, for example, crowd control or healing, it's most likely the boss you're facing that determined which is "best". Which means we'll keep switching specs around, and personally I find that a lot better than what we have now.

@RevnahCertain raids will favour certain choices which means there will no longer be a best overall talent selection but a best for raid x build

If at all, it will be a 'best' spec for one fight (as opposed to, an entire raid). And even then, the min-maxing will likely concern only 1 or 2 talent tiers, as few fights require cc AND movement AND selfhealing AND... So a lot of it is still up to the individual.
