The new level cap is 20, down from 30, this is to reflect the absence of ascending to godhood.
As such is the case, Paragon Paths and Epic Destinies have been removed from Warcraft 4e,
but have been supplemented with a new system, Talents, which reflect progression in a different way. Each class has a number of talent “trees” to access from, where these talents will do anything from giving you new powers, to increasing your abilities.
