I consider this patch a buff for the fire mages (hey, they essentially get the ice barrier for free, with mana costs on absorb, but without cooldown), and a major nerf for frost mages (31 talent made obsolete, and frostbolt damage reduced by 5-7% overall, but contrary to fire mages which can use pyro and scorch instead, we got no alternative for sustained DPS).Yes, frost mages can use mana shield too, and it will stack upon ice barrier, but this is nonsense, as the manashield can be applied faster (only global cooldown compared to ice barrier which has 30sec/24sec cooldown) and costs way less mana to keep up all the time. Wasted 31 talent, it is, and I dont't think this is balanced towards other classes (all the benefit from fire or arcane, and the shielding of the defence tree for free).As a frost mage, this patch makes me sad...
