I have been running with the same talents (with a few changes) for almost the entire expansion. Every now and then, I’ll pick a new one for a new fight but then I’ll come back and use my ‘old stand-by’ shortly after downing the new fight.
However, I ended up switching a couple of talents for different fights and I’m just in love with them.
The last time I had used anything other then Feline Swiftness was when we were doing progression in Mogu-shan Vaults. And I’d been using Displacer Beast to get out of the ground pound effect on Feng the Accursed. Then I went back to Feline Swiftness and never looked back. However, I ended up going BACK to Displacer Beast for another ‘easy getaway’ on Thok and I ended up keeping it for Siegemaster. Which is wonderful because I use it to ‘blink’ through those red lines/horrible drill lines.
With the new Ysera’s Gift talent, I immediately took that. It’s a no brainer and I kind of have a love/hate relationship with it. I love that it heals me and I don’t have to think about it, but I hate that I don’t have to think about it.
Next tier, I use Typhoon. I am Queen Goalie of Knockbacks in my guild and have a great time running around pushing around npcs.
Now, is the ‘through put’ tier. Let me just say this. I hate Incarnation. I hated it when it was Tree Form and I hate it now that it’s a talent. I have only used it when forced to by my guild. I LOVE Soul of the Forest and had used that for the majority of my raiding this expansion. Until I discovered how much I love having treant minions. YES I HAVE MINIONS NOW. So, now I run around with my little minions. And I love them. They are happy and healy and make me happy tree. They may go away when I get my 4-piece but for now, they are my slave treants.
I hate the next tier. I use Ursol’s Vortex because it pulls things back to one place and that was helpful on Tortos and The Emperor’s fight thing in Mogu’shan Vaults.
And lastly, I actually change around my last talent depending on what is happening. I used to use Heart of the Wild but now I normally use Nature’s Vigil. If we’re 3 healing a 2 heal fight, I’ll use Dream of Cenarius so I can dps a bit.
But yeah. Those are my thoughts on the talents for this tier. I’m sure all of you care but hey, it’s my blog so let me show you my thoughts.
