I'm working on an Arcane Mage alt, what would you recommend putting those freed up points into?

Speaking of talent points, is it even possible to have Encanter's Absorption + Ice Barrier...?*breaks wowhead talentbuilding speedrecord*It is! With 7 points to spare!Would it be an interesting thought to have a Absorption+Frost PvP build? Or would this talent redirection gimp someone too much?

You'd be gimped. You might be able to get some weird over defensive PVP spec going. Prismatic Cloak AND Frozen Core, along with all the other defensive talents, but you would have a pretty crappy nuke.

To answer the comment posted here: Arcane stability. Most builds took points away from that talent and put it into IA. Some might argue for student of the mind, but marrowgar, deathwhisper, gunship, dreamwalker all have significant pushback.

I did the IB/IA thing a while back.PVE:Here's what the frost version looks like:http://ptr.wowhead.com/?talent#obhw0u0fzLGzhZZVIccoRu0fzLbHere's what the arcane version looks like:http://ptr.wowhead.com/?talent#ocxfcz0czxGzGhZZbIfcksu0szIMO right now the frost version is better than the arcane version (fewer wasted talents), but in Cataclysm we'll have an extra five going into MBarr in Arcane (assuming the talents don't get moved deeper to prevent a spec like this). Of course both fall behind cookie-cutter specs.PVP: Here's what I tried to do.http://ptr.wowhead.com/?talent#of0wczMczLGzhZZAI0hobuIbd0bCould be improved a lot, never really sure what to take.
