New Mists of Pandaria Class/Spec Changes

In general I'm liking the Mage changes. Yea, Fire is more popular right now due to Arcane being gimped at 85, but that's alright as it takes some heat off us Arcane Mages from all those who've been jelly.

Arcane is still very viable though, you just have to be more conscientious of how many Arcane Charge stacks you are keeping. Arcane now has Cauterize without having to spec Fire, which IMO makes us more magical. AM now stacks twice and we now have a DoT just like Fire (Nether Temptest), so expect to see a lot more purple silly-string coming out of us.

And our tele's, ports, and food conjures don't require reagents anymore, which is really cool. But I'll still be charging for ports though. My new hobby when I'm bored is skydiving, free-falling 2000 feet and popping Slow Fall 1 second before you hit the ground is sooo fun!!!

At 90 the DPS spread between Arcane, Frost, and Fire is supposed to be about 2%, which means you can expect us to continue topping the DPS charts in raids just like in Cata. I still expect there to be noobs whom continue to complain that our class is OP/too simple, but what can I say? Haters gonna hate. =D

The funny thing about Arcane is that ever since Cataclysm it has been drastically more difficult than Fire and yet people have the impression it's the other way around. Arcane is almost impossible to play flawlessly thanks to requiring constant micromanaging of your mana every single gcd during conservation phases, while Fire was quite simple. The addition of Inferno Blast adds a little of that decision making to Fire but from what I can tell at 90 Arcane is still going to require way more micromanagement than. A far cry from when people were !@#$%ing about Arcane as the easy, one button spec in Wrath (which it still never was, but it wasn't nearly at the level of Cata/MOP Arcane).


tell me more about how mages are hard

It isn't a joke that mages are OP... I have a 85 mage if you would like to prove otherwise. And he is even on Horde.

Grats on completing the astonishing feat of leveling a character to 85.

Hey can we just skip straight to the part where you delete all your posts in the thread out of embarrassment? That's usually my favorite part of our little "debates".

Hmm yes. When you put it like that it really sheds light on an element of the situation that I hadn't considered. I'll have to reconsider all my opinions about dueling in light of this latest revelation. Please hold on while I incorporate this paradigm-shifting information into my worldview.
