    Arcane ... 6.8 %


    What makes a bad situation "dire" is the fact that the numbers have been the same during the whole expansion.
    Arcane actually requires you to think, of course people are going to avoid it like the plague.

    I hope that doesn't change at all in BFA. Arcane is more fun right now than it's been since Wrath. If that means all the people who want to sleepwalk their way to orange parses play Frost, even better.

    Nothing says it will be braindead, it's way too early to assume anything. We won't know for sure how Arcane will play until the end of beta when things have been actually tested.
    What is this? Baby's first xpac?
    They take things that are fun and completely morph and mold them into some that someone with brain damage can play since others were having fun with it before and since blizzards moto is pretty much a sickle and hammer nobody can have more fun than anyone else.

    Literally this, it's fun getting a rank 5 and having it be a purple parse. It makes you actually want to play the game through these ResidentSleeper tiers.

    Is this also true?
    People with gravitate to the spec that does the highest damage/has the best toolkit. Arcane has had neither of those things going for it all expansion.

    Arcane is a pvp spec, there is literally no reason to play it in pve atm.

    People gravitate to the spec that produces the highest damage with the lowest effort. That's why there are a metric fuckton of Afflocks now, despite the spec being hot garbage that nobody played at Legion launch.

    Let's be honest: there's no reason to play mage right now, while warlocks exist. But we're all here, aren't we? So maybe drop the condescension about which flavor of a bad (if fun!) class you're playing.
