Did about 5 rbg's in a group with this one Arcane Mage (first one i have seen since MoP), full malv with about 1/2 upgrades...and he was tearing shit up left and right, thru all the Bg's i think he went like 60 something with 2 deaths. Are they really that crazy dmg? if so, why dont i see more of them? Does it not have the control that frost does or the mobility of fire? Just a curious thought
They are single target turrets, but yes - if they are left in the back of a BG to tunnel people... no other class can come close to their pressure/damage right now. Because they have to spam Arcane Blast, their usefulness in RBGs / Arenas is greatly limited / non-existent. Especcially because rbg/arena players will have gladius/battlegroundtargets - and see the Arcane symbol - and know to lololol-sit-on-the-mage-to-win.
