    It's like they can't figure out what the hell they want to do with this. They keep scaling it back every time the player base crawls up the item levels.

    If you have to nerf it every time mages get access to better gear, just remove it and put in something that scales better.

    The worst part is that until your at that very high gear level, the spec is complete garbage.

    AW YISS, arcane mage buffs!

    WE'RE BACK BABY!

    Well, guess I'll just be playing arcane again despite preparing to switch to fire.

    If they don't want us to get better with gear they may as well just come out and say it.

    Blizzard have been completely and utterly brain dead when it comes to mages all throughout this expansion. It's getting downright annoying already.

    GC specifically said that they can and do test specs with stupid high gear levels, there's no excuse for this shit.

    GC when are you going to talk more about fixing Shadow priest kinda feeling under loved

    So what about those poor mages who cant get gear, where are they going to sit on the so called standings? I will tell you where at the bottom. Mages will almost be at the state they where in BC, food vendors with an int buff for the raid and sat outside a raid instance to rebuff after a wipe....

    Shadowform now increases the Priest's Shadow damage by 25% (was 20%).

    This was in the notes the other day. Looks like a little love to me.

    Lol, except fire wasn't OP at all since the nerf back at the start of 5.1. On live it's middle to high/middle of the pack when you get lucky with crits. All this is going to do is make it harder for new level 90 mages and those not in full BiS gear to play the spec effectively. They might as well just scrap the talent completely at this rate and just think of a better way to help fire play effectively without something like this that scales too strongly at high gear levels.

    It's actually not about being OP! Surprise! It's that mages were OP by poor design and instead of fixing the problem they're turning a dial instead of addressing fundamental spec problems. Amazing what happens when you aren't in a dick-measuring contest about who can have less complaints.
