Actually, the spirit regen thing is a slight nerf, and not totally equal.Arcane Meditation + Mage Armor + Mage Armor Glyph currently equals 80% of mana regen, not 60% as everyone keeps quoting. The Mage Armor glyph hasn't been listed as buffed.Currently, if non-casting mana regen is 200 mp5, then a mage can get 160 mp5, forty more than what the developers are listing.With a 40% decrease to the spirit regen and no buff to the mage armor glyph, a currently maxed mage will have 120% of 120 mp5, or 144 mp5. That's a decrease of 10% from the original 160mp5.So mages aren't staying the same, we're actually getting our full potential mana regen nerfed by 10%

You're right, I totally forgot to factor in Glyph of Mage Armor. Our potential mana regen is indeed getting a slight nerf. Thanks for the excellent comment!

I agree completely. I keep getting frustrated when I see sites quoting a mage's maximum regen as 60% of spirit based regen during casting instead of the 80% that I'm specced and glyphed for. And no changes have been made to the glyph to mirror the changes to the talents. It's like the developers want the player base to think Mages aren't getting nerfed.

I thought they were buffing Arcane Meditation to 50%?Arcane Meditation + Mage Armor w/ Glyph = 100%?I dunno I'm confused.
