Bashiok explains why the MoP talent calculator is out already

Blizzard unveiled the new talent calculator for Mists of Pandaria last night. Instead of making a talent point decision every few levels, you’ll now be able to choose from a handful of really cool abilities. This really makes your decisions more relevant. The old system had more illusion of choice, but didn’t we all take pretty much the same talents? In the new MoP system, every choice will make a notable playstyle difference.

Of course, Mists of Pandaria is a long time away. We’ve got an entire content patch to get through first. Bashiok hit the forums today to explain why the talent calculator is available so early.

He points out that these talent trees are definitely going to change; we’re still in a pre-alpha stage of development. Since many of those changes will happen in response to player feedback, getting the dialogue started early is a good thing. More importantly, the hope is that by revealing the early talents, players can get a better idea of the design philosophy behind changes. Whether you dig those reasons or not, we’re all clearly very excited to get our hands on the talents.

Check out what Bashiok said behind the cut.
