Sorry, I hope the title is ok *giggles* but last night when we started Garaj.. I quickly got 2 arcane missle procs, trinket (DM) proc'd, weapon (Jade Spirit) proc'd, popped my on-use (~4k int), popped jade serpent pot (another 4k int) - popped AP + Alter Time - MIssles critting for over 130k, blasts critting from 540k-700k.
I felt the true power of an Arcane Mage. My main concern(s) is that Blizz will break arcane by doing any of the following:
* Nerf scorch to where the mana cost would be detrimental to trying to 6-charge camp
* Nerf the damage bonus of RoP
* Nerf AB (costs/dmg modifiers) back to pre-5.1 values (when noone really ran arcane)
* Reduce scaling
Since scorch weaving and clearing stacks has been seen to be negligible from a DPS perspective, why would Blizzard even consider breaking this? It's not like we Arcane Mages are completely destroying everyone on a majority of fights. Other classes remain competitive.
What can we do, either here and/or on the official damage dealing forums, prevent Blizzard from knee jerking like they did Fire? I hate Frost PvE, they gutted Fire, they need to leave Arcane alone
Please speak up, fellow mages! Let your voices be heard.
