Seems each page gets it's own comments...I tried arcane, and while it's great single target DPS, it's all front loaded, and unsustainable for lots of mobs or long fights. Arcane Explosion is nothing compared to Improved Blizzard with FoF proccing, and Water Ele to help with freezes as well. The added slowing effects of the Frost tree help with most mobs. I challenge every Arcane Mage to respect Frost and watch your DPS double from what it is using arcane. Seriously. I tried it, something just felt like it was missing, it was great, high DPS very bursty, but after all that, you were typically a sitting duck. Not to mention, there is no efficient arcane rotation to speak of in a raid. A fellow Mage and myself ran Nex last night for a short while before our group disbanded. He was 61 arcane, I'm 61 frost.I had 1,054,100 damage, he had around 600,000. IMHO any Mage worth his salt can see Frost is WAY better than Arcane for Leveling and Raiding. Arcne is now what the frost tree was in BC, for PVP and not much else if you're serious about PvE.
