During the last Blizzcon, we got information about The War Within, which is the next expansion for World of Warcraft. Players are finally winding down after challenging the Amirdrassil Raid and taking down the new bosses that were introduced. Now, players are focused on what is coming next to the game.
The major key aspect that has players the most excited about World of Warcraft right now is the Hero Talents. Hero Talents are a new form of character progression that allows players to further express thier individuality in WoW. Here, we are going to go over the Mountain Thane Warrior Hero Talent Tree and what it has to offer.
Mountain Thane Warrior Hero Talent Tree For WoW The War Within
Each class in WoW has three Hero Talent Trees and each Specialization within that class can choose two. The Mountain Thane Warrior can be chosen by the Fury and Protection Warrior Specializations. Mountain Thanes have the ability to channel nature damage with their attacks, dealing extra damage. Check out the Mountain Thane Hero Talent Tree below (talent tree info via Blizzard):

Mountain Thane Capstone For WoW The War Within
The Capstone for each Hero Talent Tree in WoW is a final skill or passive that will really round out the Talent Tree. It is meant to make the entire Talent Tree feel complete and give players that extra boost they need.
The Capstone for the Mountain Thane is called Avatar of the Storm. It gives players two charges of Thunder Blast and resets the cooldown of Thunder Clap. While Avatar is not active, Lightning Strikes will give players a 10% chance to grant them Avatar for four seconds.
