So I've had a chance to check out the Warrior talents for Cataclysm for the first time. I'm liking the philosophy that Blizzard is applying. Basically offering a clearer and more straightforward path to allocating your points, while keeping the skills all fairly appealing and relevant. Yes, you could say they are dumbing down the talent trees concept, but, you know what, sometimes having more choices doesn't necessarily translate into a better gaming experience.
Although, on a more fundamental level, one could say that my initial attraction to WoW was born from the amazing amount of choices I had in tailoring my character to a particular playstyle I preferred. It became an obsession over time, one I don't particularly miss since I stopped playing. But, it was mostly in the early years when the game still felt fresh to me.
