No changes to arcane, tweaks (mostly nerfs) to frost and extra stats favoring fire, I would say fire will be the go to mage spec.

I disagree. Flash Freeze has moved frost ahead of fire in single target, Frost is the king of 2 target cleave and its aoe is much stronger than fire atm. In pvp frost's slows are still very strong and with a thermal void/ Ice form/ frigid grasp build and a good trinket you can get a 2.5k - 3k int proc for 20secs every minute . Fire and Arcane still have better burst, fire has a stun and a strong execute and both are more engaging to play though.
