Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

The Mage preview blog will be up tomorrow! Excellent news.
As they specifically mentioned that Frost and Fire
You mean arcane here.
Yes I did, whoops :P

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

That's honestly good news in my book.
Frost and Arcane just need some minor touching up, Fire needs a big rehaul.
As they specifically mentioned that Frost and Fire are getting small changes, that means Fire is being changed a lot more, which is what's necessary.

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

Combustion in Wrath increased your crit chance with Fire spells by 10% every time you cast a Fire spell, and also increase your crit damage bonus by 50%. It would expire after achieving three crits. In TBC it was the same, except it didn't give the crit damage bonus. 8 seconds of Pyro spam sounds a ...

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

Combustion alone is a big change, maybe I will play Fire next expansion.
Excited for that blog now!

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

Will wait to see what they say tomorrow before deciding what my two specs are going to be for sure though, currently Frost/Arcane despite how much like a priest weapon the Arcane staff is :P
Never mind, tri spec just announced :P

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

No word of changes for Fire yet, so they are not giving it as much attention as Shadow.

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

"Mana doesn't matter, so we're giving you an increased pool of mana" The new arcane mastery sounds extremely stupid. Why do I need more mana if I no longer gain damage based on mana %? You can burn with AB longer if you have more mana. We only need to wait until tomorrow and there'll be a mage-spec...

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

Unsure how I feel about a new Arcane Mastery, I feel that maintaining at high mana is more interesting than burning and then sitting at low mana until you can evocate.
Time will tell though I suppose.

Re: Blizzcon 2015 Discussion

I'm not that excited about Aluneth but maybe the alternate skins will be nice. Almost a shame that we already knew the other two artifacts, not much to be excited about with their reveals! If we don't see anything Mage-centric tomorrow (quite possible) then reportedly every class will be getting the...

Re: 7.0 New Spell Suggestions

I don't see how a PvE/PvP talent split could ever bring back Deep Freeze as a nuke spell. Deep Freeze dealing extreme damage to stun-immune targets was already explicitly excluded from PvP because players are never stun immune, it wasn't taken away due to PvP concerns but rather just because they di...

Re: 7.0 New Spell Suggestions

I've always wanted a spell that just conjures a big, slow moving, rolling ball of fire which leaves a path of flames behind it.
I don't think there's actually design space in the game for this though, people would hate the travel time and hate the fact that mobs might just walk out of it.

That's probably a good idea and I should have just done that myself, thanks for splitting it into its own topic.

7.0 New Spell Suggestions

Guess I'll sort of crosspost from MMO Champion, anyone got any fun ideas for new spells or effect we could have? I thought of a couple for each spec. For Fire I ideally just want to see the spec redesigned entirely, but if that's not happening then my ideal spell would essentially just be giving us ...

Re: 7.0 Speculation Thread

Artifacts will get Item Level, Stats, and "Modifiers to your Traits", from drops called "Relics" which replace dropped weapons on boss loot tables. They won't scale with your general item level. http://www.icy-veins.com/forums/topic/13199-wow-legion-interview-with-tom-chilton-ion-hazzikostas/" targe...

Re: 7.0 Speculation Thread

I imagine that "Artifact Power" will be the currency tied to your character not your weapon, then all you need for alternate specs is to do all of their intro quests to actually get the weapon (and then any other progression quests it may have). But I have realised something far more important; Bigg...

Re: 7.0 Speculation Thread

I'll wait for beta to be out before bumping the "suggest glyphs" thread but that was fun and I can't wait for Blizzard to once more squander all my brilliant ideas by not implementing them.

Re: Arcane 2PT17 "trick"

Then evocation would be on CD for a minute and you still wouldn't be able to burn
There's no situation where you want to cast evocation prior to the start of the fight

Re: Felmouth Frenzy (A very silly fish)

I expected the gap between Felmouth and 125 stat food to fall off as targets increased, and as Arcane that's true (Sleeper Sushi won out again at 3 targets or more, though my gear is mostly from heroic BRF rather than Mythic which may make a difference) but for Frost it seems to stay ahead much long...

Re: Sugge's [Mage] Guide to Blackrock Foundry [Heroic/Mythic

Might be worth noting that "Don't stand in his Bladestorm" is a useless tip for Jubei'Thos because despite the animation, it hits the entire room, and is impossible not to stand in without being outside the instance ;) If your raid leader was asking your poor melee to run away whenever he cast it, t...
