Right now, live, my arcane mage pays 221 for zero-stack arcane blast. I'm looking at it right now, and that's the price. This number is, of course, after taking into account arcane focus which reduces the mana cost by 3%.I understand where the number 229 came from, that is the number you would start with in order to get 221 afer removing 3% of the mana cost. I'm not going to reset my talents to verify it, but it looks close enough to accept as accurate (its a smidge off of a perfect 3%, but its close enough that I doubt someone would wildly guess and land so close to the mark).What I don't understand is where the number 215 came from? Is that actual information from the test realm or just B.S.? If it's legit, then it's an undocumented reduction in the mana cost that makes us even MORE mana efficient. Someone get on the PTR and check, I'm too lazy.For any possible base cost n of arcane blast, the 3.2.2 stacked costs would be n*2.3, n*3.6, n*4.9, n*6.2, so....If the base cost is 229, the stacked costs will be: 527, 824, 1122, 1420If the base cost is 221, the stacked costs will be: 508, 796, 1083, 1370If the base cost is 215, the stacked costs will be: 495, 774, 1054, 1333
