3.2 burst was pretty broken, only thing limiting it was mana and its consistency, and now, low and behold, 3.2.2 arcane. I don't think blizzard could have fucked up any harder.

There is destro burst, where they will kill you with a few GCDs, but almost no overkill, leaving the ability to live through burst with absorptions/more survivability gear/blowing CDs. Then there is arcane burst, where you will overkill by more than double your opponent's health bar. Where you can kill a pain supped priest from 100-0 in the duration of a blanket CS. Sheeping a warrior and then killing them coming out of the sheep.

Key to arcane 3.2.2 burst, 4pt9, talisman of resurgence, and some KY jelly.

And you're going to need a lot of that KY jelly if you wear 4pc t9 in arena while specced arcane.

arcane will be good for 2v2, in 3s you gonna be easily trained unless you play RMP.
Also remember there is a significant PvP arcane nerf: AB debuff lasts only 6 seconds, so if you get cced for at least 4 sec at any point of ramping up arcane stacks you gonna have to start from the scratch.

I must ask what percent of top mages don't play RMP?

It's your classes most popular comp, period, so there just isn't much weight behind anything following 'unless you play RMP'.

You guys are collectively far too quick to dismiss this.

This was in early S6, using deadly/furious gear, 2p t7.5. 11k -uncritted-. With these changes and 3k+ SP unbuffed I think I could easily manage a 20k crit. And then after this crit, there would be missiles hitting for 5k+ each.

im running with 2.830 sp and my best crit so far is 12.9k arcane blast(S6) before the resil buff, since then i never seen a crit bigger then 10k.

Did you use dying curse, while getting ToTT by a rogue, putting arcane power up and having a totem from ur shammy buffing ur SP with some hundred? :P

Btw, even in 2s I have done ridicoulus crits with this gear, most likely over 15k, ask mojjen/sonija, they know this very well :D

well 16.5k crit on a target dummy its not something new, in a 25 raid man, im doing 20k - 22k crits with t8.5 proc and trinket procs, in pvp on 700-1k resil target i doubt u will ever get close to 15k like u say.. but thats just my opinion :)

I've been playing arcane from last season to this season at Glad level and I have to break it to you, the only burst Arcane Mages received was the Missile Barrage change.

Rarely if never do you get 4 stacks arcane blast in arena, not to mention it's now close to impossible to pre-stack Arcane Blast due to the ridiculous 6 second timer (in my eyes this was a pretty significant nerf). Overall I view the changes as not an overall buff and not a nerf.

15.6k crit on a priest with 900 resil. Shit's fair.


Killed every healer through heals including paladins spamming flash of light ...didn't even CS cause I didn't have to.
