    I like this new system, simply because "most" of the talents are usable spells and not just passives that "increase x damage by 3%".

    Same choices / end results as the old system, without the ability to make horrendously poor choices. Stupid proof.

    That's because the talents are actually viable.
    If anything was made for retards, it were the old talents that gave people the idea that many shiny buttons somehow equals a choice and diversity.

    It was quite difficult make "horrendously poor choices" in Cataclysm. The talents were severely cut down, with the minimum of 31 talent points in one tree before moving to anything else. Unlike before, it became a rigid system that offered no chances anymore of doing "good" or "bad" choices, just push a lot of buttons for always follow the same, logical and predictable pattern.

    So instead now its replaced with a system that cannot be anything other than viable - retard proof.

    If I wanted the old talents I would just go play Rift.

    The new system has its flaws, but the old system was utterly pointless.

    Allowing you to actually have a say in designing your class with your play style (old talent trees) was a great concept for the game. The new talent trees do not maintain any of that, and no matter how much they attempt to balance them, there are still guides that tell you which ones to take and most people follow those guides.
    "The round, metal cooking utensil referring to the larger, cookware customarily used for, but not limited to, stews, as being of a dark shade or possibly of African descent." ~~ Fixed for now. But keep in mind any one of the words used in that fix may become politically incorrect or offensive at any moment for any reason. Further amendments may be required to prevent frivolous lawsuits in the future.

    Concept, sure, but it failed on execution.
