The following quote from Kalgan brought new life to my personal debate regarding TM.
Well, right now we're in the process of working on the talent review for the mage. Some of the aspects we're looking to improve include easing a mage's downtime between fights a bit and making a Fire/Frost build a more viable combination than it is right now. (Currently most magi feel that having anywhere between 11 to 21 points in the Arcane is a "must").
To accomplish this, it's likely that we'll take a few of the "must have" abilities from Arcane, and make them available to all magi. (Some likely candidates are the talents Evocation and Improved Arcane Explosion.) From there, we'll also look at ways for players to be able to create interesting combos between the Fire and Frost trees. Hopefully, these changes will further polish the general play experience of magi while also opening some new, interesting talent builds.
(Kalgan interview, not much interesting or new there)
Do you see this ever happening to TM in some form? I personally don't really see it as being overpowered if there was still a limit to how much rage is retained when switching stances.
I still think of the whole losing rage when switching stances as a stupid design decision, but one it is probably way too late to do anything about.
