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.

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hi, I have a problem with my frost mage. I'm pissed, because  I really don't know how  I can improve my dps. I know the rotation, I've watched many guides and my dps is still low.
