    So adding a positive system (torghast talent) to offset a negative system (affixes)?

    What is the logic to buff a content you just nerfed at same time?

    Just to add more systems as if we don't have enough of them already?

    And somehow anti-wow people always bring them up to compare and let everyone know how much better they are. For a wow-absed forum its ridiclous how much other games are being brought up. Especially in threads about wow...

    1. Have each floor drop soul ash...100 per floor??
    2. Have the floor boss also drop cosmetic loot. Such as a "loot ticket" you could redeem at an xmog NPC and exchange for any piece you don't have from all xmog-able loot.
    3. The harder floor could drop an item you could to level your crafting skill for a max (per toon) of 20 skill points and uncapped for secondary craft skills like cooking, fishing, etc.
    4. Each week, let the player have a chance to get up to 5k anima by doing all six layers of a wing, and floor 7-12 have it drop 7500 (or something like that).
    Those are all good ideas so nope. Because Blizz wants us running on the hamster wheel for power upgrades. And adding cosmetic items would require a little bit of work which they probably won't bother doing.

    I really hope we will get some kind of "Old Vanilla" Talent trees, those where really cool and I enjoyed them threw "vanilla, BC and wrath" also in Classic again.

    So lets hope this is like a test bed to see what they could do with the old talent trees and then make something like this for the classes.

    At least that way we would have those powers with us each expansion instead of just spreading it out to different systems each expansion, there should be more Evergreen content, just like we had back in Vanilla.

    PS: I know some of you will say.... everyone had one build for the talent trees... so they are useless.... but I say.... you would be amazined how many alts I made jsut to check out the talent trees and build my own tree... so did many of my friends, so the Old vanilla talent trees was alot of fun to me and my friend
