So, Warlocks got their green fire... What about blue/purple fire for mages?
In Cataclysm (and perhaps even as far back as WotLK? I can't rightly remember, to be honest) we have seen NPC spellcasters using blue and purple versions of Mage fire spells.
Do you think that Blizzard will ever get around to adding a question/option for mages to use green or purple fire in the future? Would you even want to make use of this feature?
(((Also, if anyone can recall the name of this special type of fire, I would appreciate being told. The green fire that warlocks use is called felflame, correct? Wasn't the purple/blue fire that the Twilight Cultists used in Cataclysm called twilight fire?)))
I wouldn't mind some sort of option to change the looks for certain spells, but it doesnt necessarily have to be a change of colour for our spells. Some sort of cool aura or whatever would be cool as well. But to be completely honest, I think the warlock green fire quest line took a good amount of time of the devs, I'd rather they spent the time on redesigning/revamping the mage class (if they would ever consider doing such a thing to mages) instead of making spells look different
No. If anything Mages should get Blood and Electric abilities (spoilers from 5.2 yes) but other than that it should stay as it is. Warlock's Green Fire makes sense both gameplay wise and lorewise, while Mages would have nothing to support their color change at this time.

It would be great if the casts and spells had some cool colours/graphics, but think of the lag it would generate. I'm still reeling over the first time that I was in a 25-man raid where the screen simply froze on the pull for ten seconds, lit up as if every pyrotechnic on the planet was focused there and I couldn't do anything except to listen to people screaming in Vent that a lot of people weren't doing anything...
My graphics were already set on low, which didn't help whatsoever. The second and third pulls were better, and by the time that the group had downed that boss, we were running fairly smoothly.
So, while it could be loads of fun, we have to remember that our graphics cards and processors might not be able to handle it all at first.
I can just predict all the "blue balls" jokes coming up if mages were ever - don´t know why though - to get blue fireballs. But funny how other classes start complaining or "suggesting" that that should get some different color ability once another (who btw. clearly deserve it as a class) get it.

The word you want to use is "have" not "of".
You may have alot of stuff in your country, but we got Lolland.
Nah, blizz is not gonna do it, they made an exception for warlocks because they kept whining and nagging about it for several years already :P We'd have to do the same
Yes and rightly so, the most absurd part about it was the fact blizzard didnt implement green fire to fit warlocks since day one.
As for mages well you cant really get any more colours for your class, orange purple and blue fits all 3 of your specs...you look like a disco ball as it is when you button bash.
