Would assume so. I will not mind if it stayed the same though! ;'(
Reading the Chi Wave change as well as the Zen Sphere change, isn't Zen Sphere quite strong? It's kind of a "psuedo" Nature's Guardian, no? Not nearly as strong, but still something.
Not really. Zen Sphere is now dispellable (wasn't before). It has a 10 second CD. Chi Wave is a nice talent for WW now considering it will do almost as good damage as chi using abilities and provide free healing. Mistweaver might be locked into Zen Sphere now though considering the long CD of chi wave.
On live and in pvp gear Zen Sphere ticks for ~12k every 2 seconds, and the "burst" if dispelled would be ~32k healing. Chi wave heals for 28k each bounce, which makes it a really strong heal for Mistweavers right now in PvP.
Monk healers will just be suspectible to dispells immensely. Renewing, Zen Sphere, and Enveloping Mist (our only chi dump) will all be dispellable.
Ring of Peace is probably gonna be a replacement for Deadly Reach.
Also it looks like the new WW Monk mastery is going to increase the damage you get per stack of Tigereye Brew. Tigereye Brew now gains a stack for every 2 chi you use, and stacks up to 20 (but you can only consume 10 at a time). If I'm understanding these changes correctly, and they actually go through like this, WW Monks could be pretty solid.
Yeah it states in the tooltip its a level 60 talent, so it probably is getting rid of Deadly reach and I presume deadly reach will become 20 yard range perma.
