Re: [Classes] 5.2 Changes
said by stonhinge:Read the second sentence. The talent only resets after the current target dies. Versatility is still going to be the end tier of choice on most fights. said by Cptbeatstix:
New Level-90 Talent: Marked for Death
Marks a target and instantly generates 5 combo points. When that target dies, Marked for Death's cooldown is reset. This talent has a 1-minute cooldown.
I really only see this as a pvp talent. This could change a rogues burst/utility in a fight. Raiding....not so much.
You've never had to switch targets on a boss fight? Especially one you need to burn down fast? Instant 5 CP at the start of a boss fight - good, Slice and Dice can start ticking right away. I'm guessing it's replacing Versatility, which is only good if you have a target with combo points on it. Besides, why redirect 3-4 CP when you can slap 5 on to begin with?
It's replacing Versatility, so that's not an option. This is better anyways.
On the PTR, the cooldown starts as soon as you activate it. If you kill that target, the cooldown resets.
It's also off the GCD and usable from stealth.
It's Premeditation on steroids and doesn't require stealth.
I could see this as useful leveling, pvp, and raiding where adds pop up that need to be single targeted down.
