Dec 11th 2011 8:59PM I have read all three articles with interest.
However, the bottom line is the current (and previous) talent system is by far my favorite part of the game. I have spent hundreds of gold and many hours tweaking a spec or changing it altogether. I finally rolled a second mage because I loved all three specs so much. I also have two other 85-level toons: a priest and another class I won't name on this particular forum! I've played every spec for all of them.
It's true many of your talent picks are automatic, but there are still plenty of options. While some believe there is a cookie cutter spec that is best, I disagree. I've always found a way to "improve" on such a spec. Also, the talent system makes it more fun leveling by being able to select a new talent ever other level. Every 15 levels? Where is the immediate gratification in that!
There are certainly advantages to the new upcoming system, or the switch wouldn't be made. Sadly, the biggest advantage for me will likely be the money I save on my old subscription.
Oct 29th 2011 1:37PM Shrikesnest nailed my concerns. I’m leveling a second mage, and I’m having a blast (pun intended).
Sure, many of my talent-point choices are obvious. However, I feel like I’m making progress every time I level. The new system might not be a big deal for top-level toons, but it sure takes a lot of the joy of leveling out. I get more pleasure from getting a new talent point than I do from most new spells.
Also, I have yet to see a cookie-cutter cata spec that I didn’t think could be “improved.” That’s the fun of the present system is finding subtle changes from what’s “best.”
Oct 29th 2011 12:48PM Talent points and having different specs are my favorite part of WoW. I'll reserve judgment until I see the final product, but I am concerned what I love about WoW is about to go away.

my holy priest as well.
