I know I've posted this many times, because I really hate the new talents. There really aren't any talent "trees" anymore. You pretty much have no choice to customize anything anymore. You pick a spec, and everything is already there. Aside from the 3 choices you get every 15 levels or so, character customization is gone....
I guess I've been having nostalgia moments lately, especially for the talent trees. As I'm leveling up alts I realized the customization is just not there anymore. Even if you went with the "cookie cutter" talent path, it was still fun to put all your talent points into your trees. So as I mentioned, now that I'm leveling up alts I'm realizing I really miss all the talent points and the old system.
The new system, which does have some really cool abilities, takes just 6 clicks to be done customizing your character. It's my wish that the old talent trees make their return in some form or another. Yes, it requires more work to design due to the amount of options, but the reward for players to actually have "talent tree's" would be amazing. The ability to put points into 3 different tree's was something that truely made your character unique. i.e. having a dps spec but putting some points into a healing tree for survivability.
I know some will dislike the amount of points you had to spend, but to me, that is what made customizing your character fun. You actually had to spend some time putting in all those precious points you've earned leveling up and seeing all your abilities increase or even gaining new abilities.
I typed a little more than I wanted too, but I'm really starting to miss having the 3 talent tree tiers and all those talent points to truely customize your character and their talents and abilities"
No one ever "customized" their talents. It was ALL WAYS same. I know you want to think it gave you choice but it didn't. If you were a tank/dps/healer you picked the same exact talents has 5 million others did before you.
