MMO-Champion has the new talent trees up from the PTR.. these are subject to change but I'm linking the new one below.. followed by the current live one so you can compare the difference.
Now when I made the tree I immediately saw some differences; a few which I had to dig deep to figure out, I'm going to list them here.
Blessing of Kings - Full 10% BOK is now a base spell ability. So any of you keeping points in that can now allocate them elsewhere. Oddly enough it's not going to make a huge difference in my Ret Build as I couldn't afford points for it anyway... But it will be nice to give out to folks.
Improved HOJ - This has been reduced to two levels, BUT now only reduces the cooldown of HOJ by 20 seconds, the old one was 30 seconds for 3 points. Frankly, even though we get one more talent point to spend, this will be a nerf to Ret.
Divine Guardian - New icon, also says "damage reduced by 30% up to 300% of paladins total health". The current version doesn't give a maximum.. i don't know if there was a max before or not but I noticed the tool tip change.
Improved Ret Aura - Is now gone, the talent was folded into sanctified retribution, which makes it a great 1 point talent, plus frees up 2 talent points in the Ret Tree!
Fanaticism - Now only stacks 3 times for a maximum of 18% increased crit. Down from 25% for 5 points. Actually not as bad as it sounds for me, as ret PVP build doesn't really allow 5 points in fanaticism, 3-4 is more common. Technically you'll receive an extra 3% crit if you were speccing 3/5 in your current build.
Righteous Vengeance - Same as above, now stacks only 3 times for a total of 30% as opposed to 5 times for 40%. Buff in terms of damage per talent point, and for me as I had zero in RV before.
Overall? Except for loosing 10 seconds on HOJ (which is a huge PvP downer for me). I'm pretty happy with the rest of the stuff. Again, this was mmo-champoin's pull from the game files and is subject to change. But Now I'll be able to gain a 0/17/54 build (or /19/52) and gain a bit of DPS in the process.
Other classes are getting worked around too.. I'm sure their survivability is up, so doubt this will actually help me beat other classes, (did I mention the HOJ nerf :) but it should be a nice DPS increase.
