WoW Dragonflight expansion is getting a new point-based talent system, and a promise of no borrowed power
World of Warcraft's next expansion, Dragonflight, is a return to the roots of the game in many senses with a new kind of talent tree.
I love having more options when playing a game, and yet, I often find the options a bit too much.
Sometimes you ask a question and you want to answer it immediately, precisely and concisely.
I've played World of Warcraft for a really long time, and yet I still get excited when patch notes come out, or when there's some datamining that highlights a change I like.
Blizzard games are often distinct from one another -- you're not going to confuse Hearthstone with StarCraft, for example -- but they are not conceived and executed in vacuum, and there is influence between each.
If you've only been playing World of Warcraft for the past few years, you might well be pretty used to the way the current talent system works, where you have three talents per tier and can choose one of the three, and gain a new talent tier every so often (in most cases, every 15 levels or so until you hit level 90, and then a last tier at level 100).
There are a lot of characters on the Heroes of the Storm roster.
Update: This was originally posted just for our supporters, but now it's available for everyone.
As part of the 8.0 patch, some of the powers of the various legendary items we've been collecting all expansion have been added as talents and abilities to the various classes and specs that have been making use of them.
If you play a DPS Warrior, especially Fury spec, then it's been a crazy month and Blizzard isn't done with the changes.
