I'm not talking about redoing an individual talent like RoP. And this is purely hypothetical, there is virtually 0 chance of this happening especially for WoD. But if you could redo the theme of one of our talent rows, which one would you replace and what would the new theme be? Feel free to give example talents as well if you like.
This is just a 'for fun' thread, so while it's fair game to comment on others ideas, keep in mind this is just what people would want in their idea world not neccisarily something they're pushing for blizzard to implement. There are only two rules. 1. You have to replace an existing row, not just tweak existing talents, and 2. the theme of the new row must be different than the row you're replacing. So no replacing our movement tier with three new movement talents. I'm also making this with our WoD talents in mind, not the MoP talents.
Personally, I would redo the 90 tier. We're going to have 3 damage tiers in WoD as it is. The 75 row buffs our single target, but also has an emphasis on cleave/aoe effects. The lvl 90 row has two talents that buff our overall damage, one as a bonus for standing in a circle the other cycling around and rewarding you for timing procs in tune with it along with a MI redone as a damage cd. And the level 100 seems to mostly focus on single target damage increasing, with various meteor effects used to make most of them less effective against multiple targets.
To me, the level 90 row is the least interesting of the three damage tiers so I'd personally like to do the opposite of what they're doing in WoD: Strip away the damage portion and make it a mana management tier, with all three specs caring about mana instead of just arcane. And with better balancing so that arcane hopefully isn't pigeon holed into one of them for more damage.
I'm going to leave numbers vague, as balancing those numbers even if this WAS picked up by blizz (which it never would be) would take iterating upon anyway. And I know that many people probably don't want a return of mana management to fire/frost, but remember this is just a fun 'what would you wish for' kind of thread, not serious discussion about what blizzard necessarily SHOULD do.
1. Rune of Mana. Replaces evocation. Same cd and duration as evocation. The tradeoff is you can continue to cast while getting your mana back, the downside being if you time it or position it poorly you've wasted it, but then that's also a risk with evocation itself if you start channeling it then suddenly have to move. Instant cast and not on the gcd.
2. Empowered Mana Gem. In addition to the initial burst of mana, the gems continue to regen mana over 12 seconds. The downside is you can't conjure the gems in combat anymore, so you get three doses per fight. May or may not replace evocation. The empowered gems would have their cooldown lowered to 30s, since you'd be limited to three per fight. For convenience, instead of having to constantly reconjure every fight it could work on a charge system but the charges don't regenerate until you leave combat, limiting to three per fight without making you facepalm if you forget to reconjure between pulls.
3. Invocation. Removes the cooldown of evocation. This would be the easiest talent to use, not having to worry about saving charges or timing so much, but the downside would be that unlike the other two options you can't keep dpsing while regening your mana.
