Timbal's Focusing Crystal: How does this help mages? It only procs off of periodic damage, so it would only work with fire spec. Depending on the proc mechanic, it might only be worthwhile if you can maintain multiple dots on the target, which makes this a better trinket for shadowpriests, boomkins, and warlocks. It will be interesting to see what this mechanic is, as direct damage casters would be the only ones left in the cold by heroic Delrissa.You also make the mistake of saying spirit gear is now worthwhile for mages. Nope, it's as worthless as ever, sorry. Just because you can regenerate more mana when not casting, you're still casting all the time anyway! If you are ever outside of the 5 second rule while still in combat (and not evocating, which doesn't use spirit anyway), you're not doing your job as a mage. And before you can say Mage Armor, don't. It will never be as useful as Molten Armor, and Arcane Meditation only fits into specs that have lower mana efficiency anyway.
