Pandaria Talents: Discuss

Well, in terms of discuss, I reckon if I had a night grip on it, I could throw it pretty far.

But in all seriousness, I'd like to open up to the community how you're going to change around your talents when the Mists of Pandaria expansion arrives. My character is Kanterson, a PvP arcane mage, and I'm both excited and annoyed at the new changes. Excited because there's no longer such a big restriction to one talent tree and we're probably going to see a re-appearance of the old frost-fire mages. Annoyed for exactly the same reason. In a battleground, if you got hit by an arcane blast, you could be assured that the mage you were fighting was arcane and know how to combat him. With these new talent trees, there are going to be a much larger variation on who to combat.

I've been arcane since 1.10 (when I started) so I'm not going to change now. My talent choices are going to be:
Ice Flows: A moving scorch or an instacasts sounds nice, but the thought of moving while blasting is irresistable.
Temporal Shield: It's new and exciting! But if it's crap, I'll take Ice Barrier.
Ice War: If you can self-cast it. Otherwise Frostjaw.
Cauterize: Because that mixed in with Temporal Shield just sounds trollsy.
Arcane Bomb: Most damaging DoT on that list, and seems better than Frost for doing damage.
Incanter's Shield: Take note, Mage Armor is NO LONGER going to restore your mana according to the new spell spec. For stacking arcane blasts I think a mana restoring sheild is necessary, and in BGs you have no time to evoke.

What do you guys think? What'll you be choosing as your talents?

I'm not sure yet if I'm liking the new talents. Where as now you do have a lot of good choices that get to help you make your character more unique from the next guy, you also have to make kind of tough choices for your talents.

I dont really like the current system either where you just pick your cookie-cutter spec and then play around with only a few points that dont really matter. I will have to see when I get into the beta to test stuff out.

I dont know. The kind of a "fury warrior" talent at 90 (was it avatar?) sounds kind of neat when stacking with other buffs.

They have said that many of the talents that you have now will still be there most likely as skills. I was worried about that too at first.

That nerf was nothing TBH. I was still pulling top DPS in almost all LFR's and randoms. Other pub raids I wasn't at the very top, but top 3 almost always.

Fury warriors have always had it tough. The funny thing is, they're the ones with highest survivability over damage, coming even better than protection.

Which talents are you both going to choose?

That looks good to me. I might end up changing a few of them though.

Switch to Juggernaught, man. I mean, when are you going to want to double charge? Remember, charge will lose it's ability to stun the opponent, so it won't even help you in 2v2 arenas. Otherwise I have no issues. Good choices!

I'm more or less wondering if it will get me more rage for both charges. That would get me a good boost of rage at the start of each pull. But if not I actually might pick warbringer. At least in randoms it seems to be better to have some hard CC on you. Like usually you will end up doing all the CC and interrupts yourself since none else knows what the hell you mean by CC.

Funny story. I was in a random dungeon on my mage not too long ago. Our tank had DC'd so we kicked him and were waiting for another one to come. I poly'd a mob for the next pull already and I was going to keep them poly'd, but that apparently that was a no-no and something to do with the Devil himself. So they kicked me. o_o

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Yeah. What I love is pulling on my mage. It's really easy if you're just waiting for something like a tank to join. Get the healer to bubble you, CC as many of the mobs as you can, take aggro through DPS then MI once your bubble bursts. That usually holds enough aggro on your images if you keep spamming blizz.
