I have a suggestion for a few fixes for mage issue of t1 talents.
I don't know about you guys but I've been playing mage since wotlk and the funnest experience I ever had was 5.1 arcane scorch weaving design. It had a high skill cap and the only real problem with it was the power of the specs total output.
So, my suggestion is to ditch presence of mind from the tier talent and introduce a new spell which is low mana and extremely low damage (less than ice lance without procs) kinda low. Castable while moving.
This will give arcane mages some small dmg while moving. Also fire mages will gain something similar but it also can proc hot streaks and heating up, however fire already has scorch so perhaps increase the crit chance of this said spell by 100% multiplier to make it look attractive? also give frost mages something to cast to possibly proc ice lance procs while moving.
Why it's balanced: it's a low damage spell that's sustain damage while moving. Ice Floes is normal damage but not as sustained. Blazing Speed is no damage but "ending the moving" quickly. To me, if I had to pick, it would be a hard choice. Where as currently fire just takes PoM and frost/arcane always generally take the same talents.
I wrote this post on my phone in class so it might not be perfect, will make it a proper post once I have some free time.
What do you guys think and any constructive criticism.
Especially interested in what some of the top mages of each spec think? (Vykina/Akraen/Kuni/Cycobi) and others I forgot to mention
