With a mage talent review one of the major items coming up in patch 1.11, we can now take our first look at what the mages of Azeroth can expect to see on its release!

May 4, 2006 - Someone at Mythic once said (paraphrased) that you knew an MMO was balanced when all the character classes were complaining at the same volume. Although World of Warcraft doesn't have nearly as many character classes, its talent system effectively allows for sub-classes. A priest, for example, can specialize in healing or damage, while a warrior can specialize in two-handed weapons, a sword and board, or dual-wielding one-handed weapons. And over the course of WoW's lifetime, each character class has gotten a periodic "talent review" by the dev team. Sometimes the changes are small. Sometimes, as with the adjustment to the mage talents outlined below, the differences are significant enough to waive the in-game fee for talent point distribution. What follows is directly from Blizzard, minus the notations in italics that highlight the differences between the old and the new versions of the mage talent trees.
