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.
