frost - blue; arcane - purple
Thing is, when a Mage uses Fire, it's Fire. When they use Ice, it's Ice. When they use Arcane, well, that's just straight up Arcane magic. Warlocks? They don't do 'just' fire, they use Fel Fire. Flames pulled from demonic energy. It's sickly, twisted, tainted, and inherently corrupting us when we use it.

We got green fire and but we get nerfs every patch and are completely gimped in pvp.
Enjoy your +40% buffs, your insane control in pvp and topping the charts in pve. Just sayin' :s
Edit: btw 63 rare kills here and no book. Stopped my sub. Playing lock is that fun
Why would arcane and frost mages be using fire?
blue fire. im willing to pay double monthly sub for that.
I think we can have unique flavor and cool stuff without just getting a copy of everything warlocks get.
I'd like to see more of our flavor come from time manipulation, and visual twisting of space and matter. Magey things, not fire.

Lets start demanding it so by level 100 we'll get it, instead of shitty spells from previous bosses (Flame Orb from Taldaram and Rune of Power from Molgeim...)
Why not just mod the textures to get any color you want? You aren't the special lockflake who needs a special epic quest to do it, right?

tbh, in the interest of making players more unique, transmog was a good first step,
letting locks chose between normal and green another good step,
I would like to see blue purple green black and other colours, made aviable to mages and warlocks,
(ignoring the amount of coding it would need ofc)
I'd rather existing spells get a visual rework. Frostbolt and Arcane Missiles have not been touched since Vanilla, even the "new" fireball is starting to look pretty dated. Arcane Blast is just...can't even see it brah! I also don't want to have to use off-spec spells as part of my main rotation -either-, thank you very much Nether Tempest.
Nearly all warlocks use fire at some point and only fire mages use fire. But all mages use arcane magic. Maybe some arcane spells could be replaced by rune magic, you know, the titan version of arcane magic, without any corruption. Dwarves and Vrykuls use this, so it isn't so bad idea.
Invocation is still Evocation, which has been the same, boring, shit since vanilla. Rune of Power looks like shit and is dim as hell for others, so no flashy shit there. IW is Mana Shield. BOOOOOOOOOOORING.
The only spell effects I enjoy atm is Frozen Orb and Nether Tempest. THOSE ARCANE FISH OF DEATH.

I didn't know these spells weren't Fire.
PS: Burning Soul is a passive FIRE spell that all Mages passively use to reduce pushback.
PPS: Before MoP, FFB, despite being a Fire and Frost school spell, was listed only in the Fire section (so it's technically still a "Fire" spell)

I'd be willing to bet that Ghostcrawler didnt even think about green fire for warlocks until the blackwater episode of last seasons Game of Thrones. :P
A cool quest line like that for mages only would be awesome, but I'd rather a different sort of visual improvement than just a color change on a few spells. Like an aura around my toon based on what spec I am, that might be cool.
I would like an update of spells for mages. Electricity would be interesting but highly unlikely because that sounds more suitable for a shaman. I also like the idea of time-y looking twist on mages too.
Green Fire is a perfect fit for Warlocks because Green is the color of Fel Energies, of which Warlocks use exclusively.
Mages use Elemental fire conjured through Arcane. Elemental fire = ordinary, everyday red fire.
I don't think Warlocks should have gotten green fire to begin with because it just opens floodgates for stupid shit ideas like this.
Blackrock Foundry was probably the best part of WOD, but that's really just a blackhanded compliment.
