    Mists of Pandaria Talent Calculator Unofficial Patch Notes

    Today we don't have one side news but 2!

    Mists of Pandaria Talent Calculator Unofficial Patch Notes
    What kind of site MMO-Champion would be if we left you with a bunch of picture and a couple of "ok, shit changed, go figure it out!"? Not a very good site, I tell you.

    That's why my wonderful (and slightly crazy) moderators worked all day to bring you an almost complete list of changes since what we've seen at Blizzcon! But before we jump aboard the class changes train, a word of warning from the best safety advisor out there, Bashiok.
    Originally Posted by Bashiok (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    We wanted to take a moment to give some context to why the calculators were posted, and the permanence of the data shown. A lot of times we say things like "not final" and "may change" as verbal wiggle room should we decide we need to go a different direction, or are unable to complete something in time. In this case of the Mists of Pandaria calculator data is essentially pre-alpha, and will absolutely change in many ways.

    It was important for us to get this stuff in front of you as soon as possible though (and as a work in progress as it is) to get your feedback, which will in no small part influence that change. We also wanted to present everything on a single page to give you a fuller context for the initial talent changes we announced at BlizzCon, and to see how the overall structure of core abilities, spec abilities, and talents will function, with concrete examples.

    The calculator contains elements that are experimental, still in the process of implementation, or in some cases outright failed experiments that we already intend to revise or replace. Odds are good that if it looks like we’ve forgotten some critical piece of a particular class toolkit, it’s either accounted for elsewhere, or simply a data glitch (e.g., Prayer of Healing is currently absent from the calculator – we are not taking Prayer of Healing away from priests, and Devastate for warriors probably won't sunder armor 453%). Our hope is that revealing the calculator in this state will shed light on the philosophy behind our talent overhaul, and let you get a sense of how pieces of your core rotational gameplay, such as Hot Streak, Riptide, or Sudden Doom, fit into the new system.

    The different classes are also at very different stages of design and implementation, and the fact that some mechanics changes we discussed at BlizzCon and in recent Q&As are not yet present does not mean that we have abandoned those ideas.

    Any and all feedback is very welcome, but please keep all of the above in mind when considering the information in the talent calculator, and please keep feedback consolidated in the Mists of Pandaria forum: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/2592425/
    And now, the super awesome list of compiled changes, thanks to all the moderators who worked on that including Simca, Malefic, Madgod, Migari, Radux, and many others who are going to hate me because I forgot to mention them!

    • Intervene no longer reduces the target's threat.

    Arms
    • Two-Handed Weapon Specialization is now called Seasoned Soldier and also increases the damage of any of your bleeds by 20%.
    • Mortal Strike's cooldown has been increased to 6 sec, up from 4.5 sec.
    • Slam is now exclusive to Arms and has a 0.5 sec cast time, down from 1.5 sec.
    • Overpower is now exclusive to Arms. A cooldown of 1.5 seconds was added, but this seems mostly cosmetic unless they plan to take Overpower off the global cooldown.
    • Colossus Smash is now exclusive to Arms and its rage cost has been increased to 80, up from 20.

    Fury
    • Dual Wield Specialization and Precision have been combined into Crazed Berserker but the increased chance to hit has been removed.
    • Bloodthirst's cooldown has been increased to 6 sec, up from 3 sec, but now generates 10 rage instead of costing 20 rage.
    • Wild Strike has been added. It is an attack using your offhand weapon that applies the Mortal Strike healing debuff and costs 30 rage. It has no cooldown.
    • Raging Blow now costs 30 rage, up from 20.
    • Bloodsurge is now affects Wild Strike instead of Slam. When it activates, it also reduces the global cooldown to 1 sec after Wild Strike is used.

    Protection
    • Sentinel is now called Unwavering Sentinel and now only increases Stamina by 15% but also decreases your chance to be critically hit by 6%.
    • Shield Slam now generates 10 rage, instead of consuming it.
    • Shield Block is now exclusive to Protection and has no cooldown, down from 1 minute, but costs 80 rage, up from 0. It also now increases your chance to block by 25% for the next incoming melee attack instead of for the next 10 seconds.
    • Revenge is now exclusive to Protection and costs no rage but has a 10 sec cooldown, up from 5 sec.
    • Last Stand now has no cooldown, down from 3 minutes, but costs 80 rage, up from 0.
    • Devastate now costs no rage, down from 15, but has a 3 sec cooldown, up from 0.
    • Bastion of Defense has been heavily modified and contains a combination of the Toughness, Shield Mastery, and the old Bastion of Defense.

    Thank you for the compilation. So many good changes for Warlocks. They need it. I would like to see some more love for Rogues, too. Gotta get more people to play these classes.

    yes.....i see how blizzard could confuse giving everyone everything and having 6 talent choices could be considered "choices" oh wait...nope there isn't talent trees anymore, clearly blizzard has gone down a path it will never return from

    Holy Reduces damage taken by 20% for 12 seconds. Protection Increases damage done by 10% for 12 seconds. Retribution Radiates 1000 healing to allies within 10 yards for 12 seconds.
    I hope these are just incorrectly assigned.

    Wow, good work guys.

    To other posters: keep in mind that the calculator is incomplete, as noted by Bashiok, so if your favorite spells are missing that's why (again, as noted by Bashiok).

    I'm certain people will still panic, though.

    Good.

    Every new MMO coming out is aping WoW's talent trees and it's huge flaws to a T. Blizzard going down this new path is great, and shows that they're willing to take risks still.

    Not to mention, this new tree system gives you more choices than the existing trees do. Unless you like piling in arbitrary points in such a way that it broke your effectiveness, this does away with the lack of choice players have when attempting to spec themselves for PvP/PvE.
