Akraen (and other Frosties!), I'd like to ask you something (and via public forum, not PM so others with the same problem can tell their officers/GMs). Why is frost competitive and as good as Arcane on many fights?
I personally know why, but since I'm apparently terrible with words and since posting logs does NOTHING to my "higher-ups", I'd like to see it in your words so I can also direct them to this thread and can see for themselves to stop pushing me (and the other Mages) to go Arcane.
How/Why I personally feel Frost is better/as good as Arcane:
- Way better AoE, especially 2-target cleave
- More mobile; able to do mechanics and have some level of DPS than being dead weight
- The slows and freezes, as well as having access to Deep Freeze significantly easier (stuns help immensely in this tier on a few fights)
- Able to build multiple ways stat-wise rather than being hard-locked to a specific BiS list
-- The one I have chosen (Mixture, leaning on Haste-heavy) is extremely flexible in how I gear
*- I personally do way better as Frost than Arcane on all fights (except Norushen and Iron Juggernaut), and have the logs to back this up [Moot point for others, but like I said, these are my personal thoughts]
So yeah, that's just my personal problem that I've been fighting since Siege even began. The last few months I've been telling them (and again, have LOGS AS PROOF) as to why Frost is as good as/better than Arcane (for me), and yet they continue to ignore and tell me that Arcane is just flat out better. Any idea how I (and others having the same issue) can fix this problem? I still feel that any Mage spec (Fire too!) is perfectly viable and competitive, and atm, all 3 are balanced the best they have been in a long time and you will simply do best with your favorite spec, except for a select few fights where one is just flat out better.
