6th of May: Some new talents integrated, mastery system not yet done. Seems only three have been updated, look for the ones with NYI on them.

Priest Talents: http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?priest#,,11927
Druid: http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?druid#,,11927
Shamans: http://talent.mmo-champion.com/?shaman#,,11927 (Elemental Only)

http://www.mmo-champion.com/news-2/cataclysm-friends-family-alpha-198562/ has more on enchants, profession changes, titles and screenshots of new models.

Thoughts:

Priests -

Shadowy Apparition for Shadow Priests sounds cool, though it depends on if its targetable/killable as to how effective it'll be.

Shadow Orbs sounds too much like shamans lightning shield for it to be cool. Unless you have an obsession with black pornography of course, BALLS UP ALL IN YOUR FACE.

Thriving Light for Holy Priests seems to hint that we'll either see more bosses with bleeds or a really odd niche for holy priests in pvp.

Deliverance for Holy Priests actually sounds pretty cool though it seems to step on the toes of what a disc priest is now (haste-driven)

Druids -

Lunar Justice actually sounds interesting in that its not just a man a restore but requires people to actually go out and seek the light. Of course, you can imagine killing mobs standing in a fire and just wasting it that way so it will have only limited use.

Wrath of Cenarius seems to force boomkins to move while casting for added benefit.

Fungal Growth... Fuck having to actually care about treants spawning shrooms that slow Sad

Fury of Stormrage... Encouraging healers to do DPS or is it just a case of being a PVP talent.

Effloresce seems nice in concept, kind of like the current paladin talent, splash healing around a certain person, good for melee.

The revitalize change sucks since it only restores the druid's own mana now Sad

Shamans -

Totem of Wrath replaced with Earthquake and instead all fire totems have the same effect if you invest in a talent, nice change.

I believe the thriving light thing is really a quick bandage to the way too obvious problem of priests getting hard countered by warriors in PVP.

And deliverance in its current form is actually a serendipity nerf. Currently disc in PVE is not haste driven

I HAVE BEEN AWAY FROM THE GAME LONG DON"T JUDGE ME QQQQQQQQQ

It seems like a strange way of fixing the problem though to apply specifically to bleeds, which is why I'm somewhat hopeful of a Moroes #2.

Every nerf makes me upset as I have one of which. So at the end, I am always unhappy.

It should be repeated that these are alpha notes for a reason, things aren't fully polished so it's hard to judge whether things are nerfs when you look at them holistically. If you lost 100 healing power and gain 5,000,000 healing power from the stuff that isn't implemented yet, you're still ahead Smile

Kind of the problem with these kinds of notes, they're nice to see glimpses of what's going on but I wouldn't worry too much about it.

This will be my spec, if I'm coming back:

Seems like a no-brainer for what a disc priest should go with, unless I'm missing something.

Missing the fact that most talent trees will be cut down substantially of 'filler' talents supposedly, in place of the mastery system. How this work out exactly might mean you can go deeper in two different trees at once or it'll just be a rebalancing of talents overall. Pointless to even think about building a talent spec for Cata until the modified versions of the trees are out with mastery systems.

Should just enjoy the new achievements, zones and maps for now. It's waay, waaaay to early to even start discussing and QQing about class buffs and nerfs.

I really need a new computer to see Cata's graphics effectively. And since I'll be in NS and won't have much time to raid, the new changes is excellent for me to slowly level alts and re-experience New Azeroth.

Gonna continue lveling my Priest main but I'll be playing a Dwarf and Goblin to go through the new quest lines on both factions. It's pretty sad to see places like Auberdine, Taraujo all in ruins. I'm more excited about the new 1-60 experience than the 80-85 zones and raids. One can only imagine all the possible follow-up storylines of all the various NPCs.
