Has anyone got any opionions on the upcoming changes to mage?

 

Mage

General

Arcane

Frost

 

 

Seems fire hasnt been touched , but with frostfire bolt now doing more damage is there a place for it in the fire rotation?

 

is arcane going to rise as the only single target spec viable or is the changes to frost going to make it a competitor?

 

What is peoples thoughts?

After taking into account the nerf along with the buffs, frost overall single target damage at ilevel 700 will be buffed about 3.7%. Arcane will receive about a 4% nerf to overall single target damage at ilevel 700. This brings the gap between frost and arcane much closer, but arcane still will do about 2.5% better on single target than frost, so I forsee no changes to the current arcane for single, and fire for aoe.

Frostfire Bolt is replaced by 16px-Spell_arcane_blast.png?version=30cc [Arcane Blast] for Arcane mages and by 16px-Spell_fire_flamebolt.png?version=19 [Fireball] (at level 12) for Fire mages.
