sry man, but ur wrong. if u add up the stats, replenishment nerf doesnt touch the mana redcutions mages have got. Take this for exampleFrostbolt mana cost has been reduced from 13% of base mana to 11% of base mana.the cast time is 2.5secif we cast frostbolt 6 times in 15sec, we have saved ourselvs 12% of base mana.the nerf makes replenshment replensh 3% of total mana every 15sec, which is reduced by .75% over 15sec. my personal intellect is 177 base + 665 with a total of 842.simple math842 % 0.75 = 6.315177 % 12 = 20.54sooooooo yeah. you save 20.54 intellect with mana reduction in 3.2 (every 15sec), and the nerf removes 6.315intellect you would of regenerated(every 15sec), making 3.2 wayy better for mana for mages. sucks for everyone else though. these numbers deffer slightly depending on your intellect, but overall its around the same.

@ Chicamokid,It seems you're including Int from gear in your base mana calculation. Actually, base mana is your mana pool if you're not wearing any gear. I think you'll come to the same general conclusion though - the frost cost reductions are somewhat larger than the nerf to replinishment. As Christian pointed out in a recent article though, the fire talent doesn't seem to adequately compensate - especially with Ignites being reset with each new crit.
