Upcoming Hotfix to Arcane Power on Crit

Wizard
1 2 3 15 Next
During the development of patch 1.0.7, a Wizard bug relating to Arcane Power on Crit was introduced when we fixed a bug that was causing Blizzard to not proc it at all.

The good news is, as of patch 1.0.7, Blizzard can now trigger Arcane Power on Crit! The bad news is, by fixing the bug with Blizzard, we introduced a new bug that was causing Archon: Disintegration Wave, Disintegrate, Energy Twister, Meteor, and Ray of Frost to trigger Arcane Power on Crit twice per proc rather than once per proc, resulting in a higher than normal proc rate. We plan on fixing this bug very soon, and wanted to give you a heads-up about it.
At least you got a warning.
Fair enough, thanks for telling us.
Can we keep this bug?
i so called this as a bug that was gonna be fixed... people were rearranging their builds around this supposed new APOC working.. lol
So basically, a CM Wiz can just cut their APoC gear in half to get a preview of the hotfix, or is it not that dramatic?

You call it bug I call it Interesting side effect. :p
Thankfully I bought an APoC chant's force yesterday.
Thank you for informing us.

But could you please consider to keep this one and rename it to feature?

Another view on this is that this "feature" requires less crit hit chance which is extremely hard or expensive to cone by. Doesn't fix itemisation, but does help the player become a bit stronger.
PLEEEEASE: Any comment about CM and/or Shocking Aspect proc rates on those spells? They seem to be "a bit off", too. Even before 1.07

Sorry guys. Had to ask.
keep this bug! might actually use these channeling spells.
I like this bug. Please don't squash it :(

Thanks for the heads up!
Please fix the Blood Magic rune while you're at it:

ITT : We did something that caused a bug, and when we fixed the bug, we caused another bug that we are gonna fix soon.

PS: Expect another bug on APOC when we fix the latest bug.
WOW...10 apoc..
It's been magnificent, actually.

I'd love to see any comments about those too, be it "working as intended", "not working as intended but going to leave as is", or "going to hotfix because it's really crazily bugged", or really anything.
Meh, I'd never run with less than 19 so that's fine with me.
So, in theory, anyone who kept their APOC levels set according to pre 1.07 should be okay, but if you jumped on the new reduced APOC requirement to sustain AP while running CM/WW, you're going to have to-up your APOC level back to pre 1.07 amounts.
I guess I'll have to lose ~0.5aps because of this, yoohoo :/
