You finally addressed the aspect which I fear the most: fun.I do have full confidence that whatever numbers will be tweaked by blizzard to make arcane spec viable, and arcane mages will output numbers comparable to other classes. Adjusting numbers is easy.What I think blizzard will fail at, with this approach, is making it fun. Right now, each arcane blast is more and more fun because as it sucks your mana you do MORE damage. Bigger numbers. It's FUN. The penalty? Going OOM quicker.With cataclysm, having each spell cast do LESS damage simply is not going to be fun. Think about it, you want things/ways to make you're damage go UP, not DOWN. Intrinsically, having each cast do LESS damage simply isn't fun. I appreciate blizzard trying to make mages have a cool, unique aspect to the arcane spec, but the one they came up with just doesn't seem fun.
