I like 3 and 4, rest are meh.
Waterbolt is like what % of total damage? I remember mages wouldn't even let it auto attack just cus they want to use the nova.. talking pvp btw here.
If recall correctly in MoP Beta, there was a minor glyph that put a tiny, cosmetic familiar behind the mage, of the corresponding element/spec.
Rule of Thumb: If the healer's HPS is higher than your DPS, you're doing it wrong.
My favourite water elemental is the deep sea version. I don't mind the current model, but... It would be so cool if they were updated/glyphed as an option!
“Far, far below the deepest delvings of the dwarves, the world is gnawed by nameless things.”
I don't mind either way, as long they reinstate naming the elemental. Revive, AquamusPrime !
I think a good idea would be something a long the lines of Glyph of Elemental Infusion. Where, as a previous poster suggested, the elemental infuses you with its power and becomes an aura around your character, still casting water bolt from the infusion graphics. This way, it makes it a little gimmik around having a pet out or not etc, but also means there is absolutely no need to rework any of the abilities or scale the mages abilities to incorporate the loss of the dps.
The only thing that would need to be overcome, for PvP purposed, would be the ability to kill it. Maybe make it dispellable or something a long those lines?
Get rid of it and roll the dmg into ours to ez.
That is Glyph of Conjure Familiar and it is in live, it is just that you hardly see anyone ever using it.If recall correctly in MoP Beta, there was a minor glyph that put a tiny, cosmetic familiar behind the mage, of the corresponding element/spec.
Would give us the same amount of damage without giving us too much burst with a buff on frostbolt and not even more multidotting with another bomb buff.
Sign me up for the smallest spec possible. The water elemental always seems to know where I want to click =\
Whoa! I just was also thinking the same thing. Changing the look of the elemental something imo more bearable >.>. I imagined yes alternating between the various water elementals. Thinking those cata ones with some updates could be neat, or the pandaran ones. Other options could be slimes or those mana wyrms, but doubtful since the prettier Northrend ones became hunter pets a few patches ago, perhaps maybe with this tiers theme, mages can get hydras.
