As a Blood Elf, Ive always used Arcane Torrent in my rotation, as pre-5.0.4 it was based on the amount of mana I had in my mana pool, so using a volcanic potion w/ Arcane torrent and Divine plea would significantly bring my mana up, Arcane Torrent giving me back nearly 10k at times. [I was full BiS, so I had a decently sized mana pool, fully buffed]
But now, when I use Arcane torrent, I get a whopping 6k mana. Like....really? Out of 300k total mana, someone at blizzard thought that 6k was 6%? I might have failed math in highschool, but even I know thats not right. Same thing going for Seal of Insight hit chances. Whenever I land a hit that procs the magical '4% mana back' I get a whopping 2500 mana. Again, not being a grand math student, still tells me that 4% of 300k is NOT 2500.
As for Divine plea, I cant say 100% that its not working its full fuction, I dont think it is, but I havent had the time during fights to sit and watch. So I wont get into it.
But the issue I am having now is basically, I know Blizz wanted to make healing harder, and a challenge, but what was the point of increasing my mana pool, when you were just gonna double the costs of my spells anyways? I was gonna assume blizz was going off 'base mana' percentages, but what is base mana anymore? I could take all my armor off or put on my dps gear, and still have 300k mana.
So someone help address me if Im wrong, but at this point in time, I am having mana issues [as I sure everyone else is]. Mana issues that careful CD planning and other mana regen abilities cant even help with. Because things dont seem to work as they should.
Any other pallies noticing the same issues?
