Re: The idea of perpetual burn phase

As far as i know from ptr testing the manacost reduction does not stack. So having more than 1 of that trait is pretty much useless.
If you have more than 1 it is just a worse version of Galvanizing Spark.

Re: Galvanizing Spark weaker than tooltip suggests

Bonus damage from Galvanizing Spark will be affected by Versatility as well as the Arcane Mage aura, and the tooltip reflects all three. If you applied the present 85% Arcane aura to your 170 point Galv Spark, you would get a result of 144.5. Oh I did not know it was acutally also scaling with vers...

Re: Galvanizing Spark weaker than tooltip suggests

I also had that idea. But i don't think that the aura is the reason because if it was it should still be a fixed amount and not scale with other items you have equipped. The amount of damage that arcane blast was increased by galvanizing spark actually did go down when i unequipped my other gear pie...

Re: Galvanizing Spark weaker than tooltip suggests

Further investigation: After unequipping everything but the above named pieces galvanizing spark only increases the damage by 145 instead of 170 which is a difference of ~ 18%.

Galvanizing Spark weaker than tooltip suggests

The tooltip of a 375 Galvanizing Spark says it increases the damage of arcane blast by 170. But this is incorrect. It actually only increases its damage by 154. A difference of about 9% damage. 375 "Mantle of Containted Corruption" euqipped: http://prntscr.com/llcbjk To compare the damage without th...

Re: [BfA] Arcane Mage Guide for 8.0 (BfA pre-patch) - TLDR version

Has anyone tried using the Iskar / Mannoroth trinkets? I have a feeling that they could be pretty overpowered but i don't own them, so i can't really try it out myself.

Soul of the Archmage Hotfix

Looks like we just got a hotfix: http://prntscr.com/k868hx

Seems to be a nerf to me. Sad, i hope they balance this out by increasing arcane damage by a few %.

Arcane 4-piece

So, the tooltip says 15% haste.
I actually gain around 19% haste. So is it bugged or am i miss understanding blizzards wording again?

Some screenshots to backup my claim:

Re: What could make us better?

I like the way arcane plays right now. I think increasing the value that mastery has for arcane by 30%-40% would be a good solution. So having a lot of mastery gear doesnt feel as bad as it does right now. This would also increase our damage output overall and make the spec feel less punishing if yo...

Re: Arcane expectations for 7.2.5

Also there is a bug with the Arcane Charges resetting on Boss pull but the mana cost for Arcane Blast staying the same which is in the game since Legion launch. Example:You have 4 charges pre pull -> Boss pull -> charges reset to 0 -> ab's mana cost is still the same as if you had 4 charges while it...

Re: Arcane mage guide for raiding by Dutchmagoz! [6.2 update

As a Night elf i get 1% haste because of my passive so do i want to aim for 2010 haste ( which is 2100 - 90 ( 1%) ) or do i still go for 2100 ?
