Arcane stuff is purple, has been for a long time. Go fly around Netherstorm.
BTW, what's wrong with pink? It's just a color.
Let Reason Prevail
well, they were my only back in tbc. Yet i am on warrior... quite sure fury abilities are red >.>...
Learn your colors. Arcane's powers are shades of purple. With other colors accompanying it as a secondary color. It's not pink.
As a visual aid:
The shades of purple.

I'm the minister of mistakes. I'm the shaman of sh*tstorms. If there was a f**k-up pope. I'd have a 3 foot hat!
I see purple effects, with only light nuances ranging from blue to pink.
You're trying too hard.
It's this colour because that is what colour Arcane is
That Question is Pretty easy to Answer.
1. Most Mages are Gnomes with Pink Hair and the color fits to us (Pink Gnomes love Blink Blink)
Okay the Truth is here
I personal love the Pink Arcane =), i like the Effects and it is a part of the Arcane Mage.

Arcane mages are only pink and sparkly in sunlight.
All this thread really amounts to is more proof that Arcane Missiles graphic needs to be updated.
It is, literally, the oldest spell graphic in the game right now (for those who remember, it was one of the first set of spells that came out in the first beta build of vanilla WoW, along with Fireball and Frostbolt, both of which have been updated since).
I was thinking something along the lines of the shaman's Elemental blast spell, but naturally, with the pinkis.. i mean purple-y, Arcane theme.
The current AMs, while I do love them so, just need the face-lift at this point.
Fire is red, Frost is blue, and Arcane is Purple ( red+ blue)

aw wish it was real pink, would go great with my transmorg ill have to settle with purp, close enough !
It's purple because purple isn't an organic color. It isn't something you see in nature that frequently. Other elements have a color associated with them. Nature = green. Water = blue, fire = red, etc etc. Arcane isn't natural so it is only "natural" (lol pun) that purple be used since it is a sorta otherwordly color!
