Thought of the Day: On cookie cutter specs

Imagine having the option in the MMO/ talent spec based game of your choice, to press a button that would automatically select the optimal spec for your class/role. Feel free to assume that this in game tool also provides a note or tutorial on rotation/ how to play the spec effectively. Would you press the button?

Does anyone still think that talent trees are actually a good design for MMOs? This is one of the areas where it’d actually be better if the designers decided how they wanted each class to play and hardwired it. Then leave any remaining talent choices to be a simple choice of playing style, and make them easy to comprehend.
