Data mined info reveals possible Tassadar rework-- huge changes.

Tassadar has always been a relatively high tier hero. His utility is almost always useful, but this potential rework looks to make himinto a true High Templar, not just a shield bot.
As usual, rogue data miners prove that not all heroes wear capes.
In this Reddit thread, Reddit user Ikdeath shared a huge list of Tassadar talents that appear to be the result of a full hero re-work. There were a few Diablo changes as well, but we have known about an upcoming Diablo rework for some time now.
Tassadar, on the other hand, comes from left field. The iconic high templar has already carved himself a popular niche in competitive play, and his shielding capabilities are extremely effective when paired with mobile heroes that can't rely on traditional healers to keep up with them.
Why a rework?
Tassadar is already a "good" hero, so why the rework? If you take a look at some of these potential talents, it becomes clear:
Psionic Intensity: You can now cast a second Psionic Storm within 3 seconds of casting the first. Each subsequent damage tick of Psionic Storm deals [VALUE]% more damage.
Mental Acuity Reduces Oracle cooldown per Heroes killed: [VALUE]/[VALUE] Cooldown reduction: [VALUE]
Mystic PursuitTalent Regeneration Globes grant Tassadar an additional 100% Mana. Reward: After collecting [VALUE] Regeneration Globes, increase your Basic Attack range by [VALUE]%. ”
These are just some of the talents that MAY be included in a Tassadar rework and all of them sound really fun. They allow Tassadar to deal increased damage in a way that is unique to Tassadar. These talents would help seperate a master Tassadar player from just a good one, which is an awesome trend we are seeing with support hero re-works.
The Tassadar hinted in these talent reworks sounds like a powerful High Templar and creates a more dynamic hero. We can't confirm if any of these talents are real (as it is just a data-mined rumor) but we sure hope they are.
