tbh feels like a bit of a bandaid... and is doing the opposite of blizzards mission statement of avoiding locking people into taking dps talents.
eg. WoW Talent Calculator - Sigrie
all needed dps talents and we have one point to play with doesn't feel very customizable. There is still a lot of work to be done i feel.
I actually liked the changes. In contrast to the first release, I had the option of getting a few non-DPS talents. Plus Archangel is much more important than you think. It's the first time priests have ever had an activated DPS cooldown, unless you count Shadowfiend.
I definitely hope the 5 second Mind Flay thing goes away. Did they even talk about why they were motivated to change it? I find myself interrupting at the second tick on maybe a fifth of my Mind Flays. I can't imagine how many times I'd have to interrupt a 5 second mind flay.
