Stuff like mana pools being capped and one talent from each line kills build diversity. The people who were calling this total homogenization seem to be correct. Also some of their changes just toss out all legacy support for the sake of it. Head enchants were just tossed and if you had one well tough.
Some of the game has evolved considerably over the years while other parts they just change arbitrarily to give people something new to dick around with before getting bored and repeating the cycle.
I am not sure how I feel about the talents now, but lets not pretend there was ever a lot of build diversity. Maybe in PvP, but not in serious PvE (unless that was a mid-late Cata or very late Wrath thing that I would not have been around for).
I was more talking about content and ways to access it than mechanics when I said I thought they were improving.
