Nuevos y jugosos cambios para todas las clases previstos en MoP, que todavía no son definitivos, ni mucho menos. De hecho, a nosotros aún nos faltan los talentos de nivel 90. Se pueden consultar los árboles de talentos en este enlace.

Cómo ya comenté anteriormente cuando se anunció la salida de MoP,  los talentos dejan de existir tal como los hemos conocido hasta ahora, y pasamos a tener un árbol totalmente distinto. Cada 15 niveles, podemos escoger una muy interesante habilidad entre tres disponibles, que se suman a las que vamos obteniendo por nuestra propia clase y especialización de talentos.

Talentos:


Han cambiado ligeramente desde que se anunció este árbol en la Blizzcon (ver este post).

Tier 15, o tier de la supervivencia (anteriormente, tier del CC).

  • Nature's Guardian:  whenever a damaging attack brings you below 30% health, your maximun health is increased by 15% 25% for 10 sec and your threat level against the attacker is reduced. 30 sec cooldown.
  • Stone Bulwark Totem:  summons an earth totem with 5 health at the feet of the caster for 30 sec that grants the caster a shield absorbing 2649 damage 359 damage, and refreshes the shield every 5 sec  and up to an additional 120 every 5 sec thereafter.
  • Astral Shift: seek haven by shifting partially into the elemental planes, reducing damage taken by 50% but also all damage and healing by 50% 30% for 6 sec
Tres diferentes CD's de supervivencia a escoger según la situación. Muy bienvenido, dado que hasta ahora solo teníamos un tótem+glifo que absorbía sobre 16k para evitar daño. Aunque podáis pensar que esto solo sirve para PvP, este tipo de CD's son muy útiles en raid, especialmente en hard modes.

Tier 30, o tier del CC (anteriormente, tier de la supervivencia).
  • Frozen Power:  your Frost Shock now also roots the target in ice for 5 sec.
  • Earthgrab Totem:  summons an Earthgrab Totem with 5 health at the feet of the caster for 45 secs. The totem pulses every second, rooting all enemies within 8 yards for 5 sec. Recently rooted enemies will instead have their movement speed reduced by 50%
  • Windwalk Totem:  summons an air totem with 5 health at the feet of the caster for 6 sec, granting raid members within 30 yards immunity to movement-impairing effects (se elimina el Repulsion Totem).
Tier dedicado al CC. Quizás más útil en PvP, pero no puede descartarse que sea necesario en PvE también.

Tier 45, o tier de los tótems (anteriormente, tier del PvP)
  • Call of the Elements: when activated, inmediatly finishes the cooldown of all totems.
  • Totemic Restoration:   If a totem is replaced or destroyed before its duration expires naturally, its cooldown is reduced in proportion to the lost duration, up to a maximum of the 50% of the full duration.
  • Totemic Projection:  relocates your active totems to the specified location
Este tier está dedicado a aumentar la utilidad de los tótems, reduciendo su CD, aumentando su supervivencia o permitiéndonos ahorrar maná si tenemos que reubicarlos.

Tier 60, o tier de los cooldowns (anteriormente, tier del healing)
  • Elemental Mastery:  when activated, your next Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning or Lava Burst becomes an instant cast spell. In addition, your Fire, Frost and Nature damage is increased by 15% and you gain 20% spell haste for 15 sec Calls upon elemental forces, empowering you with 30% haste for 20 sec.
  • Ancestral Swiftness:  passively increases spell and melee haste by 5%. When activated, your next nature spell with a base casting time less than 10 sec becomes instant (anteriormente llamado Nature's Swiftness).
  • Echo of the Elements:  when you cast a damage or healing spell, you have a chance to gain Echo of the Elements, duplicating that spell's effect
Los talentos son compartidos por las 3 ramas del chamán, así que todos ellos pueden ser útiles siendo DPS o siendo healer.

Tier 75, o tier del healing (anteriormente, tier de los cooldowns).
  • Healing Tide Totem:  summons a water totem with 5 10% of the caster's health at the feet of the caster for 10 sec, healing the 5 most injured raid members within 40 yd for 1060 every 2 sec. The Healing Tide Totem pulses every 2 sec, healing the 5 most injured members within 40 yd for 3179.
  • Ancestral Guidance:  when you deal damage or healing for the next 10 seconds, 40% of that amount is copied as healing to a nearby injured ally.
  • Fortifying Waters:  allies standing within your healing rain recieve a 10% reduction to incoming magic damage
Las clases DPS también necesitan cooldowns de healing para apoyar. En una raid son muchas las ocasiones en que se necesitaría un cooldown extra para ayudar a la superviencia, y este tier nos ayudaría.

Tier 90: en desarrollo para nuestra clase. Nos falta el que anteriormente era el Tier de PvP, así que es posible que el tier 90 esté dedicado a esto.

Siguiendo con la línea anunciada, los tótems cobran un protagonismo diferente al que vienen teniendo hasta ahora. Es decir, adiós a los bufos estáticos, y hola a la utilidad. Un buen cambio, bajo mi punto de vista.

Habilidades:

Los chamanes resto, a mayores de las habilidades comunes a toda la clase, tendremos las siguientes, exclusivas para nosotros:
  • Healing Focus (reduce pushback al curar)
  • Meditation (proporciona regeneración de maná vía spirit)
  • Purification (aumenta la efectividad de las curas propias y de los tótems, pero ya no reduce el tiempo de casteo de las curas)
  • Riptide
  • Purify Spirit (dispelea curse y magic)
  • Healing Wave
  • Earth Shield (ahora incluye de serie el talento Nature's Blessing)
  • Earthliving Weapon (ahora incluye de serie el talento Blessing of the Eternals).
  • Ancestral Awakening
  • Resurgence
  • Chain Heal (ahora incluye de serie la bonificación del Tier12 de chamán resto)
  • Mail Specialization
  • Tidal Waves
  • Mana Tide Totem (ahora dura 16 segundos)
  • Greater Healing Wave
  • Spirit Link Totem
  • Maestría: Deep Healing
La primera cosa que me está llamando la atención de esto, es que las otras ramas del chamán (elemental y enhancement) se quedan sin más curas que la Healing Rain, puesto que el resto de ellas son exclusivas de la rama restoration. No sé qué opinarán los compañeros DPS acerca de esto, pero sin duda les resta un poco de supervivencia especialmente en PvP. También pueden usar el Healing Stream Totem, que pasa a durar 1 minuto y a curar a los miembros más heridos de la raid, en lugar de sólamente a la propia party.

En segundo lugar, me encantan los cambios a la combinación de Earth Shield y Earthliving Weapon con sus respectivos talentos, y a la Chain Heal con el bono de T12 de chami. Dichos beneficios pasan a ser pasivos, sin tener que escogerlos por talentos tal como se hace ahora.

Además se añade un nuevo hechizo: Ascendance. Es común a las tres specs, pero con efectos diferentes para cada una de ellas. En el caso del healer, el efecto es que durante 15 segundos, todo el healing realizado se duplica y redistribuye por la raid. Un CD de raid muy interesante.

En general, me está gustando la orientación que se le está dando al chamán de cara a MoP... aunque todos estos cambios no son definitivos, y aún nos faltan los talentos de nivel 90!
