Arcane Brilliance became one of the most useless mage blogs, unfortunately. :( "Gearing up your mage" for the newcomers in PvP should at least had some simple list of items any mage would aim for. Or, maybe, how much resilence and spell penetration mages would like to have.But we only see some general info on how to farm honor points / PvP gear set that has nothing special to do with mages and could easily fill to any other class forum's weekly spot.

I suppose you missed that part of the column (being the whole thing) where he names the tailoring set, the savage, hateful, deadly, and furious sets.I mean, it's a discussion and information blog, not Elitist Jerks forums. And as far as how much resil or spell penetration goes... I don't see how it would be difficult for any reader to use Wowhead or any of the other plethera of methods out there to see how much that gear offers, and what would clearly be ideal. And it isn't like spell penetration doesn't explain itself, and if it didn't, I'm certain Wowiki or a simple google search could bring up figures if you couldn't already figure it out.What I don't understand is why people feel the need to come on here posting a negative comment that really holds no ground, when they could goto places like Elitist, and be happy scrutinizing over numbers and info, when the RNG makes most of it trivial anyways. That is, in the sense that an extra 10 resil isn't going to win your matches.

I actually found it useful. I've been thinking of getting into PvP but I really wasn't sure how to go about gearing up since the xpac. This article gave me a much better idea. Also, as for specs, it's really not much of a secret that either arcane or frost are the best pvp specs... frost has always been solid and from what I see a lot of mages do well as arcane now too.I think a lot of people expect too much from Wowinsider. I read the articles for news and entertainment value, not for hardcore theorycrafting or mechanics discussion. It's just not what the website is about, imo.
