World of Warcraft has changed significantly since its initial release. Some of the biggest changes occurred to tanks and healers, and there are many more changes coming. What are the changes to come though? We will not know for sure until Cataclysm is released, however some minor clues have been released. In addition different players have different ideas about what would be good changes to the game.
The two class types also need more cohesion between them, possibly even some abilities or talents that work off of each other. Right now each has talents based on cool downs, which are all cool, but how much more interesting would it be if more of them interacted with the other class types cooldown? This is probably very hard to balance, but would add a lot of interest and timing between the two players. Something that Blizzard could look at is the Heroic Opportunities system that Sony uses in Everquest 2. This system uses abilities that start chains that other players and classes need to finish for extra damage, healing, or other effects.
