I’ll save my most of my thoughts on these changes for another post(s) because it’s a lot to talk about, but my initial impression is that Blizzard is really going for a significant change to the way class roles are focused.  It also seems like the strength of the new abilities are a lot stronger than the ones TBC introduced.
