As a Mage I am very pleased the new talent tree. The talent Winter's Chill has been turned from a mediocre talent to a must have (Original Winter's Chill: "Tier 2 1/3 Increases the power of your Chill effects by slowing the target's movement by an additional 4%/7%/10%" New Winter's Chill: "Tier 6 1/5 Gives your Frost damage spells a 20%/40%/60%/80%/100% chance to apply the Winter's Chill effect, which increases the chance a Frost spell will critically hit the target by 1%. Stacks up to 5 times.") The new Arcane Resilience talent (Tier 3 1/1 Increases your armour by an amount equal to 50% of your Intellect.) that replaces Evocation is good because it will increase the survivability of Mages, something a lot of people have been wanting. I also like how they made Arcane Explosion an instant cast by default and that they removed Evocation as a talent and made it a skill. It’s also good that they haven't changed the tree's too radically so I can still have my 18 Arcane 33 Frost build (Here is my current build and my new build). When I first heard that they were reviewing Mages I was scared because I thought they'd nerf them but I am very pleased with what they have done. Word up Blizzard.
