The Fire spec for mages is shaping up to be absolutely amazing. From Elitist Jerks:'Quite frankly, it's hard not to be excited about the current incarnation of Fire. Feedback includes comments ranging from simply "Excellent" to "The Gold Standard of Cataclysm talent design". 'Pretty much everyone who hasn't switched to fire, will at least have a fire spec. The other great news I'm hearing is that frost is actually doing really well, and that balance between the 3 specs will be such that they will all be within 500 dps of each other, meaning for the first time in wow history, mages might actually be able to pick the spec they like the most without worrying about what is the absolute best at damage dealing.

I haven't been able to raid as Frost since BC. This is bringing tears to my ears. Frosty tears! :D

When I originally rolled my mage several years ago, she was arcane, mostly because it was the redheaded stepchild spec at the time. Then, I tried out fire, and I fell in love. I fell so hard, and I planned to never change. Then, by the time I hit 80 with her, I kept hearing that arcane was the spec to be. I finally caved into peer pressure and respecc'd her to arcane.I am so very glad to hear that fire is going to be rockin' in Cata again, because I really miss and love it so.

As I've said before, fire is the new arcane in the expansion.
