I use a deep Arcane/Frost build on my mage, http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=oixVc0czxIuiZZVAz0o and I combine it with (at the minute, working on at least one more, two after 2.4) four procs from gear, and it works like a dream. Glossing over arcane talents like Arcane Potency is a nightmare, since because I'm an arcane missle spammer, I notice the difference a helluva lot more. In a perfect situation, I would pop Icy Veins and AP, then cast Arcane Missles. At the start of that cast Clearcasting can proc, which with Arcane Potency gives me over 50% chance to crit, which applies to the duration of the arcane missles that I've cast. Add to that the procs from Spellstrike, the CC exalted ring (yeah, that's right, I spent two weeks in Silithus and god DAMN it was worth it), Blade of Wizardry, Quagmirran's Eye and (not currently on my mage since I haven't done enough Arc runs) Shiffar's Nexus Horn, it isn't odd for me to get 1.9k+ crits for all five bolts of AM. In just under 3 seconds.Obviously that's a best best best case scenario, but even when I get one or two procs my little mage can do frankly ridiculous amounts of damage (although horribly has less than 6k health, a big difference from my fire spec warlock, damn spellfire... :( ) Anyways at the minute I'm now looking for ways of making more use of Arcane Blast since I haven't really developed a way of making the most of the debuff while also keeping the mana cost down, but anyways, just my two cents ;)
