Forcing Warlocks to get a constant 15% haste buff is completely against Blizzard's entire new approach to having choices in trees. If they want to make their lives easy they can simply swap the spots of these two talents and make balancing Affliction, Demo and Destro damage so much easier.
I mean if they try to balance Affliction and Demo w/o this talent and a Warlock gets it, well the dps will be through the roof. But forcing a player to spend 7 of the 10 "optional" points for such a large dps boost is just not right.
Are there any other options you guys can think of to solve this issue? I don't even want to get into my thoughts about PvP since Destro's damage will probably be lower as a baseline at 85 due to the expected pickup of this talent. This is fine for PvE where you can keep the buff up but this isn't reliable in PvP at all. Again, any non QQ ideas how to solve this forced spec dilemma?
