Talent Calculator Update: Mage, Paladin, Shaman

The official Wrath of the Lich King talent calculators have been updated!

While most of the changes are tooltip clarifications and new icons for the placeholders, there are a few bigger changes as well:

  • Enhancement Shaman's Maelstrom Weapon now makes any spell instant cast when stacked to 5, not just Lightning Bolt, Chain Lightning or Lava Burst. New tooltip: When you critically hit with a melee weapon, you reduce the cast time of your next spell by 4/8/12/16/20%. Stacks up to 5 times. Lasts 15 seconds. (talent location)
  • Retribution Paladin
    • Improved Blessing of Might buffed: Increases the attack power bonus of your Blessing of Might by 10/20/30/40/50%. (talent location)
    • Vindication now gives a 20% debuff for 2 talent points instead of 15% for 3. New tooltip: Gives the Paladin's damaging attacks a chance to reduce the target's attributes by 10/20% for 15 sec. (talent location)
    • Pursuit of Justice reduced to 2 talent points. New tooltip: Reduces the chance you'll be hit by spells by 1/2% and increases movement and mounted movement speed by 8/15%. This does not stack with other movement speed increasing effects. (talent location)
  • Arcane Mage
    • Arcane Impact (tier 3) changed to Spell Impact proccing off many more spells. Tooltip: Increases the critical strike chance of your Arcane Explosion, ArcaneBlast, Blast Wave, Fire Blast, Ice Lance, Cone of Cold spells by an additional 2/4/6%.
    • Arcane Potency (tier 6) no longer requires 5 points in Arcane Concentration (tier 2), but 1 point in Presence of Mind.
    • Student of Mind (tier 9) moved to Tier 3.
    • Potent Spirit (tier 8) replaced with Mind Mastery. New tooltip: Increases spell damage by up to 5/10/15/20/25% of your total intellect.
    • Netherwind Presence (tier 10) moved to Tier 9 to replace Student of Mind. The talent has also been reworked to give 6% passive haste. New tooltip: Increases your spell haste by 2/4/6%.
    • Missile Barrage (tier 10) new talent to replace Netherwind Presence's instant casts with faster Arcane Missiles. Tooltip: Gives your Arcane Barrage, Fireball, Frostbolt and Frostfire Bolt spells a 3/6/9/12/15% chance to reduce the channeled duration of the next Arcane Missiles spell to 1.5 secs and fire missiles every .3 sec.
