With this guide you can learn why the change was made. How to use the new talent trees. Or even Importing a friends build to your game.

What are WoW Talents?

Talents in World of Warcraft are very important for the player. They determine your build. From Area of Attack (AoE) to Single Target (ST).

The Changes in World of Warcraft have gone from nice but complicated talent trees, to very limited choice and options. Once again we are able to customize spec with multiple choice and vary from our fellow player.

The points you spend should be done wisely. They give you the proper abilities and power to Tank, Heal or DPS. Many builds are available online through multiple sources. But the proper builds should be customized by the player. You can find what works best for you in each scenario.

Without talent points the spells and abilities you learn would not change and there would not be any difference between each player. Thus there would be no need for hard to reach goals such as Mythic Raiding or Keystone Hero.

New with the WoW Pre-patch

Players have been requesting to change the “multiple choice selection” style tree since the original talent point system was removed at the beginning of World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria. The new Talent trees give the player the choice to build their character for themselves again.

You can access your Dragonflight Talent Trees by pressing (N) on your keyboard.

Final Thoughts

World of Warcraft has and always shall be a game of different playstyles. Our talents should always give us the difference between our fellow player. With the Dragonflight talent trees, our gaming should stand out even more. Allowing each player to stand out in the DPS or HPS meters and logs. Show off your class with the power you have.

With the new up-coming Mythic+ Season we should finally see a change between the class meta based off the talents we use instead of Blizzard deciding one class is better than the rest.
