Omg...cause arcane is soooo UP...I weep a river of tears for you.And no...Blizz is not going to give arcane OR frost a DoT...at least I hope not...Warlocks and Mages are already too similar as it is, giving every Mage a DoT would just make the already slight disparities between those two classes even slighter.

Congratulations, you're one step closer to being Warlocks.Seed of Corruption, anyone?

welcome to the fun that is the Seed of corruption spam. except that i have infinite mana because of lifetap. and you don't. so while high cost spells are built into my class, they just kill your dps. so have fun with it

He's right about arcane AoE sucking. Arcane mages' primary AoE spell, arcane explosion, requires them to run up into melee. No other ranged class/spec is forced to run into and stay in melee to do AoE damage. Mages are not melee classes for a reason; their cloth won't protect them from the occasional cleave or whirlwind, so they quickly die even if the tank is holding threat.In most real PvE situations, arcane mages are forced to use untalented flame strikes or blizzards to AoE from range, and just accept that they can't match the AoE dps that other classes/specs are capable of.

your wrong, elemental Shaman also have to run into melee range to put down magma totems

Arcane Explosion is significantly under-scaled at the current top rank. It's simply ridicules that an arcane spec'd mage can get better DPS from blizzard then they can from AE. When you add the danger of being in melee range to use it, the spell doesn't even get put on people's main bars any more.

@TemposGood point, I hadn't thought about elemental shammies. They're even worse off than arcane mages - at least mages have offspec spells to fall back on.
