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)
