    Well then. That makes it the size of Blizzard.

    Ahh ok. It's by no means a new talent but still much better

    MUCH better. Maybe now Arcane will be viable for fights like Immersus, with a lot of micro movement

    Hmm. This would make some fights easier as arcane.

    Bout time. Still will be obnoxiously restrictive but it's an improvement.

    Lets hope this is true. It will be nice if it is.

    8 yards? That's... ... wow.

    Not sure if incredibly awesome or incredibly retarded. Seriously, I can't make heads or tails on this; gotta go check it in game.

    Oh that's fun. I updated my PTR just to try it just to see it not there

    There is a LOT of ugly ass armor on my PTR Pewpewblast though... BLECH at this T16 ;_;

    As an arcane mage I'm happy. :3

    I was wondering how long it would take them to turn RoP into a casted, limited range totem with a pretty graphic.


    It is a bandaid fix (due to how unbearably punishing SoO is on movement), nothing more.

    Course, but it's at least decent of them to give us anything before 6.0 for the L90 talents.

    I feel like it'll be smaller than blizzard still, isn't blizzard and 8 yard radius not diameter? Won't this change make it a diameter of 8 yards? Or no

    It's not the fix I was hoping for but it's a solid change in the right direction.
    Between this and the ice floes change I am actually impressed with blizzard for a change.
    I'm sure the first week or two is going to be kind of sucky as arcane in SoO but at least these changes help.

    I see it as more than a bandaid. A lot of raid movement is stepping 5 yards away and such. This makes Rune of Power WAY more viable. It'll be a bad talent on fights where we have to move waaay far constantly. Otherwise, 16 yards diameter, and being able to place two, it'll be pretty decent.

    Umm...Wowhead says RoP current radius is 2.25 yards.

    http://www.wowhead.com/spell=116011/rune-of-power

    isn't the current rop a 3 yard diameter? lol. It's word weirdly...I don't know if it's going to be 16 yard diameter..I'm so confused. If it's 16 diameter it's as big as blizzard.


    EDIT: I guess they said 3 yard radius rather than 2.25 yard radius for the sake of numbers...if so that's almost a 4x increase of the radius.

    like Kuny says, it's just a band aid fix.

    It will make life easier as arcane but it's just for waiting 6.0.

    Really can`t wait for the band-aid. This will possibly rescue me from the fire spec. Arcane looks pretty decent on PTR.
