    Most of our spells use the animations they had back in vanilla.

    And no, blue fire is a terribly stupid idea. From an aesthetic standpoint what Mages should receive is a) better animations for a lot of their spells and b) better delineation between specs so you don't have to cast Arcane spells as part of your main rotation as Fire or Frost (looking at you, Nether Tempest).

    Right, as the world goes, is only in question between equals in power, while the strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.

    There is a modern myth that people have always tended towards democracy, constitutions, electoral rights; but in truth, love of freedom has never been the predominant note of popular politics. At most times, popular demand has been for a strong government.

    No. Frostbolt, Arcane Blast, Arcane Missiles are all looking awfully dated for example.

    It's almost always the wrong argument to compare yourself to the highest DPS specs out there. "Middle of the pack" is actually where everyone is supposed to be. -Ghostcrawler

    •Yes, this is a roller coaster. Our process is to try things out and iterate if we don't like them. If the churn offends you, just hang on for another week or two.

    Would love for them to make fireball actually look like a fireball, not the current whimpy firebolt.

    Ya, reminds me of firebolt from Diablo 2. If I had my way fireball would look similar to the power core in Uldum used for Gnomebliteration. Maybe it wouldn't have to be as gigantic but they could reuse that model. Mages are supposed to be flashy, one doesn't spend years in apprenticeship studying magic to be able to throw lit charcoal briquettes.

    um what fire spell do we have actual animation besides fireball, pyro and flamestrike??? i mean it would be a nice change but we have too few little spell for a overhaul of colous imo

    Blue fire for mages? No..

    Because mages use actual fire...whereas Locks use felfires. They, honestly, should get their Green fire from level 1 WITHOUT a quest...
    There is a thin line between not knowing and not caring, and I like to think that I walk that line every day.

    Well I guess some more pixels wouldn't hurt (maybe 25m framerates) but I like Arcane Missiles and Frostbolt. Would be nice if AB had an actual animation of some kind :P

    It just wouldn't make ense to have blue fire, except a spell like frostfire bolt, which has blue in it. Locks having green fire makes sense are far as lore and to make the classes more unique. It just makes no sense to give the main "fire type" class a different color of flame spells. "because I want it" isn't a reason.

    I support all kinds of rainbow theme colors for every class' flashy spells so we can shimmer & shine in fancy flashy ways.

    Wtf are u talking about, when is the last time u played this game? Locks have always been insane in pvp and definitely no slouches in pve...especially in MOP.

    That means that warlocks are almost not played in PvP and that they are far from top played classes in PvE.

    Its really hard to missunderstand that message...but...hey you did it xD

    He is not talking about power. He probably knows that warlocks are very strong... The message is Warlocks are not played. This has nothing to do with power, its only about usage.

    Why blue? I would prefer my Fire to be more fiery, but I like it red. Maybe make it feels like burning instead?

    Technically speaking, blue fire is hotter than red fire...
