The preemptive Talent changes look promising for the locks.
I am a big advocate of "Bringing the Lock Back" as lately we have been dumbed down to nothing but glorified priest/mage wannabees, and not been defined as our own class but almost all of the talent changes in mists as they stand now seem VERY locktastic. I mean 25% dmg healed back as done by shadowbolt? or an AOE life steal? and those are just a few to begin with looking at all of them they really want to bring the unique abilities back to the lock. Abilities locks have and that other classes don't just have a re-tooled version of. We are getting our heals back (hopefully they don't alter these too much other than some balancing) I am excitedly looking forward to it!
