Man these changes will take some getting used to. Fortunately for me, the retadin talent tree is pretty straightforward

The thing is, they're just dumbing down this game more. Warlock's now have specific talent tree masteries:

--if you pick affliction, you deal 25% more shadow damage
--if you pick destro, you deal 25% more fire damage
--if you pick demonology, you deal 15% more shadow and fire damage

I dunno about 'dumbing down.' I know it's the knee-jerk reaction to hearing the word or seeing 'streamlining,' but it isn't always so bad.

It'll be a bit easier for the new or casual player to figure out what's good for their class and spec, and how to make a spec. How many times have you seen a deathknight (usually blood elf,) with all 71 points in a single tree, wearing spellpower plate?

At least with these changes, having them around won't be quite the detriment it was.

I also don't mind removing things like ArP; that shit was a bother to figure out at what point it was better than strength for a warrior, etc. The only sad part is now gearing will be even more linear; sure there was always a 'best,' but you could have some wiggle room in how you picked up gear.
This comes mainly from the appearance side of things... something I'm really wondering why Blizzard hasn't done anything for. It's just flat out boring when your character looks exactly like these other fifty characters; down to the same weapon glow because one enchant is superior to the rest. At least go the guildwars route and allow for armor dyes.

Demonology is a one-trick-pony, totally unimpressed by it.

Destruction is where it's at.

But i might give affliction a shot later on down the road.

They each have their attractions, I actually prefer Affliction the most because I liked what was generally a complicated rotation, getting it perfect meant the difference between being top DPS and being mediocre. Destruction was the same but a little bit...simple. Timing was still necessary, but not nearly as intense as Affliction. Demonology wasn't something I could ever enjoy in a raid but managing it in PVP and levelling was pretty fun.

Yeah I need to do argent tournament dailies today to get my last heirloom. I have them all minus the leather chest for the rogue I didn't really care about, and figured I'd get them with points after the conversion as they'd be cheaper.

Holy paladin - I can literally stay alive for pretty much ever, since my "you heal someone and it heals you for x" talent is critting for 8k. HPS is amazing, I'm liking the new "hectic" playstyle. Word of Glory is now my filler

Ret Paladin - I do more damage than I did before, just not as much as all of the other overpowered DPS. My girlfriends spriest was putting out 11k on a target dummy last night

New badges.

My pally in TOC10 gear crits for 11k Its retarded.
My lvl 70 fury warrior in heirlooms has 1000s scrolling by like its going out of style, and I heal something stupid like 80% of my health bar on each mob.
Will try my shaman (icc10 gear) next.
My icc25/277 druid is on another account and I don't even feel like transfering to even try it Feral changes look like shit.
