All everyone is saying about the Warlocks is that Blizzard took the time and changed the way each of the three specs work ( in this case by giving them a secondary resource).
I am not asking they give us a secondary resource but to take some time and look into the Mage class a little more in depth. It has been said multiple times that the 3 Mage classes play very similarly which i agree with for the most part.
1. Apply Bomb of choice (NT for most of us)
2. Filler nuke (Fireball, Frost Bolt, Arcane Blast)
3. Use procs (FoF/FFb, heating up/Pyro, Missles)
Granted to be good at any of the three specs it will take a good deal more than those simple steps but its still a very similar idea.
I personally like the 1 resource play style and enjoy raiding as is. But at the same time I understand the concerns of other mages.
And I completely agree with the aoe revamp we need badly. I feel useless in some situations because my frozen orb is on cd for another 15 seconds but sadly the adds will be dead by then.
