No joke, some dude on the mage forums defending arcane said it was because you had to figure out what was best at the time to use in between barrages.

if arc was that overpowered, then SK's shart wouldn't be filled with twice as many frost then arc mages.

i play rogue now btw - i stopped playing mage, but i play with a mage in 2v2, and I can tell you both speccs are pretty equal

Even if that were so..
Someone with the coordination of a four year old could play Arcane successfully.

That's the problem, as well as the aforementioned bad players defending it because they don't want to have to think when they play/can't.

_REALLY_ you are defending this? arcane mages are stomping all over the lesser classes atm, any scrub can get to 1,8k-2k by pressing a few buttons. Problem is that at that point you start facing the druid/warr of wotlk (hpala/dk) where as dk is pretty much immune to magic and has ways to prevent his pala from dying.


this does not however make arcane balanced

Arcane is pretty retarded, but I feel like DKs should be the main focus of everyone's QQ right now. Atleast arcane mages can be killed in a reasonable amount of time.

Not if you're a caster.
In which case its "full resist, full resist, partial resist, full resist..."
Or "Hey look, I juked the counterspell.. now I can free cast a 4sec frostbolt and hope that it too doesn't get resisted"

It's pretty understandable that people complain against a certain class/spec being overpowered when they feel helpless when facing it, but what I can't understand is why some people are defending a spec???

I'm an arcane mage atm, but I will never defend my spec as being balanced or whatever, it's not like it was my design tbw :D Blizz have to give explanations

All I do is spec in a way to make the most of my class in the group of player I play with, and that's pretty much what did locks, druid... all the OP classes in BC. It's natural.

Spec'ing for into the most powerful template has always been the case, and will always be, nothing to defend :)

There are even player who rerolled druids and locks in BC, then spec into SL/SL and stuff... All complaints should be addressed to blizz, maybe they'll respond, players don't have to, and shouldn't respond.

It's because Blizzard needs someone who actually plays the game to tell them what's wrong and what's right.

I dont really think a class that gets raped by rogues, hunters, pallys(with the right team), and dks... pretty much any melee oriented team, can be necessarily considered OP


this doesnt mean I dont think arcane is a retarded spec with absolutely zero learning curve. The reason so many think its op is because anyone can play it. Scrubs who were 1400 as frost are suddenly 1700+ with the right team mates.


I still think there are way more important issues in the game such as DK's and pvp survivability in general that should be addressed before arcane mages

I still feel frost will prevail, esp in 3s and 5s

Aracne mages are not OP.

2v2 and 3v3 Rankings - Assuming the Spec is correct of course..

How many of those teams:
Have Mages
2v2 - 13 Mages
3v3 - 34 Mages

Of those Mages who are arcane?
2v2 - 4 Arcane
9 Frost
3v3 - 9 Arcane
24 Frost
